    Tila Tequila Injured After Concert Attack

    Tila Tequila wasn't feeling the love this weekend.

    The pint-sized reality star was pelted by concertgoers while onstage at Gathering of Juggalos, a music festival in Hardin County, Ill.

    In a statement exclusive to E! News, Tequila's rep described the attack as "horrific"—and that wasn't all.

    "A lawsuit is pending" as a result of the incident, as well. 

    "Tila has gotten medical care for the horrific attack that happened to her this weekend at the Juggalos event in Chicago and is in good hands right now and under medical direction," her manager told E! News. "She would like to thank all of her fans for all the love and support that they have given." 

    The Shot at Love star echoed those sentiments on her Twitter page. 

    "Thank you everyone for your support," Tequila tweeted. "The people at Juggalos behavior was disgusting and I am filing a suit against Them now. Thanks 4 ur luv. Pretty soon the owners who run the Juggalos will be bankrupt. My attorney Alan is already on it. This is disgusting behavior from men. But to all of my fans, I appreciate your outpour of love and support! Xoxo"

    The reality fixture reportedly suffered facial lacerations and bruises on her body after concertgoers hurled rocks, bottles and other improvised projectiles at Tequila shortly after she took the stage at the music festival Saturday.

    The crowd, which was apparently already riled up, redoubled its effort when Tequila bared her breasts. But she continued to perform after her face started bleeding from the blows.

    "She was holding a towel to her head, blood pouring down her face,"  a concertgoer told CNN.

    After exiting the stage, Tequila was also chased by a crowd back to her trailer, where they smashed windows and rocked the vehicle, as well as damaging the SUV that eventually whisked her away.
