The 35-year-old singer was performing at the Tidal X: 1015 gig at Brooklyn's Barclays Center when the incident occurred.

While singing her track Haunted, her long blonde braid appeared to catch on her earring and ripped it out. However, Beyonce did not miss a beat, wiped the blood away from her ear, and carried on with her set.

The Formation singer debuted her Rapunzel-style long braid on the red carpet before the gig, wearing a sheer black gown with beading, along with huge bracelets stacked on her wrists.

Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Robin Thicke, Common, T.I., and Lil Yachty were among those performing at the gig, which was rising money for Robin Hood, an organisation which fights poverty.

Also at the star-studded event was Beyonce's mother Tina, and Joe Jonas.

She finished her mammoth Formation World Tour earlier this month (Oct16), and pulled out all the stops to make sure she went out with a bang.

Serena Williams, Kendrick Lamar and husband Jay Z appeared on stage with the Crazy in Love hitmaker for her final gig at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
