Beyonce’s Mrs. Carter World Tour came to a tearful close last week, but it looks like a couple of fans had a sad outcome at one of her shows. The R&B diva is being sued by two women who claim they were trampled by a stampede before her Chicago concert last December.

According to CBS Chicago, “longtime fans” Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson filed a lawsuit against the United Center, Live Nation and Queen Bey.

The two fans stated in their suit that they stood outside the venue for hours with hopes of getting close to the stage for Beyonce’s show. But when the gates opened at 7PM, without proper instructions to allow an orderly entrance, they were trampled by a “rushing mob.” The enormous crowd knocked them to the ground leaving them both unconscious and with broken bones.

Both Castellanos and Davidson had to be taken to the hospital for their injuries and did not stay for the show.

The women alleged that the United Center, Live Nation and Beyonce did nothing to prevent the growing crowd from bum-rushing the entrance at the venue once the gate was opened.

Castellanos and Davidson are seeking undisclosed damages.

Attorneys for United Center, Live Nation and Beyonce had no comment on the matter.
