R&B singer and reality Tv star K. Michelle called on police for help with an overzealous fan over the weekend (13-14Dec14) after he allegedly got a little too close for comfort.

The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta regular was leaving her hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana early on Sunday (14Dec14) when the man approached her.

The guy, who was reportedly intoxicated, began invading the singer's personal space and started to behave rudely, prompting Michelle to warn him to back off.

He allegedly refused and Michelle's bodyguard stepped in, reportedly punching him in the face, knocking him out cold.

Cops were called to deal with the unwanted fan attention, but by the time officers arrived, the man had regained consciousness and had left the scene of the incident, according to Tmz.com.

Authorities subsequently decided not to take any further action.
