R+B beauty Kelis was forced to exit the stage at last weekend's (21-22AUG04) V Festival in England - after nearly 5,000 fans tried to enter the full-to-capacity tent she was playing in.

The MILKSHAKE singer, who is engaged to rapper Nas, was performing in the JJB tent at the music event in Chelmsford, south England on Saturday (21AUG04) when chaos erupted.

Music lovers, who were desperate to get in to see her, were kept at bay by anxious security while inside the tent a massive fight broke out, leaving one reveller needing hospital attention.

A source says, "There were a lot of disappointed fans making a scene. They wouldn't accept that there was no room for them and continued to rant and push in a bid to sneak inside.

"Suddenly there was blood everywhere and one guy had to be carried out on a stretcher. It was quite a sight and unheard of for that sort of madness to break out at a Kelis show."

Eventually, the TRICK ME star played the rest of her set and left the site to party into the night in London.
