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.

Tone Loc and other used-to-bes also performed.
Tia Tequila is a no talent whore, famous for simply screwing famous people (Shawn Merriman, etc.)
In this case, she got EXACTLY what she wanted: more attention and a possible settlement for her “injuries”.
Personally, I’ve seen more convincing wounds from 1st year theatrical makeup students...
“The four-day festival is an annual event geared toward fans of the metal-rap group Insane Clown Posse, who are dubbed “Juggalos.” ICP headlined the fest but a diverse range of performers including Kottonmouth Kings, Naughty by Nature, Coolio, Tone Loc and Twiztid also hit the stage.”
I guess they didn't like her Juggalos.
There’s nothing artistic about ICP. They are a group of exceedingly wicked hate-filled punks.
I've never seen a black Juggalo before. I didn't think there was such a thing.
Blue Lou Marini: “Chickenwire?”
LOL! I'm glad you know what happens. That makes one of us.
Juggalos and Juggalettes are by far the biggest losers on the planet.
Even Tila’s boobs couldn’t get her out of that jam. lol
The mostly drug addled 60’s generation has spawned what looks to be the worst generation...ever.
Lord, it may be worse than I thought!
This society is doomed.
This ICP thing has been going on for 10+ years. Came out of the excess of the 1990s (which saw “artists” like GG Allin naked at concerts throwing his own excrement at frightened members of the audience who came to see him throw chase around OTHER audience members).
Just look at the pix. ..on second thought, don’t look at the pix.
