Reality TV star Tila Tequila suffered facial cuts when she was pelted with rocks and bottles while performing at a music festival in Illinois early Saturday, according to a witness and a law enforcement official.
"She's pretty cut up," said a performer who saw the violence at the "Gathering of the Juggalos" in rural Hardin County, Illinois. The witness asked not to be identified so that he does not anger the juggalos.
Tequila, a Playboy model who also sings, posted a Twitter message Saturday, saying she would sue the festival, which is organized for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.
Tequila eventually escaped, but only after windows in her SUV were smashed, he said.
Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner, who offered a similar description of the events, said he has an open investigation.
Tequila offered her descriptions of the events in a statement to celebrity news website.
"I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair ... cuz they threw fire crackers on stage," she wrote.
The witness, who was standing in the rear of the stage, said the crowd of about 2,000 was immediately angry toward Tequila and she was unable to turn them around.
"She was taunting them," he said. "She didn't know how to handle them. She didn't understand the dynamic."
The rocks and bottles flew harder and faster when Tequila bared her breasts, he said.
"She took her top off and they got really violent," he said.
Tequila continued to perform even after her face started bleeding, he said. "She was holding a towel to her head, blood pouring down her face," he said.
"It was scary as hell!" Tequila wrote.

She is a no talent tease who over estimated her appeal.
Bring on Gaga!
At least the witness spoke out unlike those who claim to denounce Islamic jihad.
“Tila Tequila” sounds like something out of R.A. Lafferty.
Someone acted stupidly.
Waiting for the White House Fago Summit and Wednesday night Gathering.
Pictures. It’s like a Code Pink rally on meth.
There, fixed it.
Uhhh - it would be helpful to understand the motive...
Scouts out! Cavalry Ho!
Wait a minute... isn't this the lowlife beyotch that is BFF with Meghan "Two Tons Of Fun" McCain?
Why, yes! It is!
Also it is impossibly to pass judgment without at least a photo.
America continues to circle downward toward the sewer. There is so much wrong with this it is almost impossible to comment.
From those pictures, that looks like a fine place to test a neutron bomb.
Maybe she should have broken out into a rendition of "Rawhide."
God, they look more like animals than human beings.
Thank God I’m well out of it.
We play BOTH kinds! Country AND Western!
Some of the stories say they were throwing human waste at her, also. At least, that’s what she’s claiming.
Just a thought...maybe in the future, they need to build the ICP’s stage sets with a large chicken-wire fence along the edge of the stage. You know, like the honky-tonk in “The Blues Brothers”.
