What is Ava Max's real name? Fan gets on stage and slaps singer while she performed

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Days after Bebe Rexha was attacked on stage, the singer-songwriter Ava Max was slapped by a fan while performing in Los Angeles, on Tuesday night, June 20. Even though she was calm after the unfortunate incident, Max posted on social media and wrote, “He slapped me so hard that he scratched the inside of my eye. He’s never coming to a show again thank you to the fans for being spectacular tonight in LA though!!”

What is Ava Max's real name?

Max, who was wearing a glittery blue and black two-piece, was dancing on stage when the incident took place. In the footage, the artist whose real name is Amanda Ava Koci, can be seen jerking backward, but soon retains her composure and continues to perform. Earlier, a concertgoer hit Bebe Rexha with his phone, leaving the singer with a bloodied face. She received three stitches after being rushed to the hospital.

Nicolas Malvagna was recognized as the fan who attacked Bebe Rexha with his phone. Following the incident, an initial arrest was released and ordered to stay away from the singer and he is set to appear on July 31. “As a fan, Mr Malvagna's sole intention was to have Ms Rexha take photos with his phone and return it as a keepsake. 'It was never his intention to injure Ms Rehxa," said his attorney. NYPD spokesperson said, “On Sunday, June 18, 2023, at approximately 2200 hours, police were notified of an assault that occurred at the concert space of Pier 17 located at 89 South Street, within the confines of the 1st Precinct. A preliminary investigation on scene determined that a 27-year-old male intentionally threw a cell phone at a 33-year-old female performer on stage, striking her about the face," reports DailyMail.
