Miley Cyrus’ security team were forced to intervene after a fan tried to grab and kiss the star as she walked through crowds in Barcelona, Spain.
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker was in the city with her husband Liam Hemsworth, 29, to perform at the Primavera Sound festival on Friday May 31, 2019.
As the pair walked to their car, the 26-year-old singer had to negotiate a throng of adoring fans, and footage posted by Spanish Miley devotee Alvaro Saucedo on Twitter showed one person get too close for comfort.
The video showed the fan grabbing the star’s hair and shoulder, and attempting to plant a kiss on the popstar, who recoiled. The couple’s security team then put themselves between Miley and the fan, and ushered her away into her vehicle.
