Nicki Minaj had to intervene at her concert in California after a violent brawl broke out in the audience, with one girl pepper sprayed in the face.

The Anaconda hitmaker was performing at the Concord Hill venue in the Bay Area on Friday (14Aug15) when mass violence broke out, with fans punching each other and chairs being thrown, TMZ.com reports.

Minaj is shown on a video shouting for the music to stop, and she tells the girl who had been pepper sprayed to get onto the stage to be treated.

Minaj says, "Bring her to the stage. The one that just got sprayed with mace in the face. Come here."
