This is SO scary!!
A Japanese pop star is in the hospital in critical condition after she was stabbed repeatedly by an obsessive fan in Tokyo on Saturday afternoon.
Mayu Tomita was apparently stabbed ‘dozens’ of times in the neck and chest after she refused a fan’s gift before a concert of hers in the Japanese city this afternoon.
The singer — who is also a college student — has yet to regain consciousness in the hospital, according to reports in the Japanese media.
Police have arrested Tomohiro Iwazaki, a 27-year-old man, who was at the scene with a blood-covered knife.
Apparently, before the attack, the singer had told police that Iwazaki had been stalking her online and posting unwanted comments about her on Twitter and other sites.
Let’s just hope and pray that Tomita recovers — because right now, it doesn’t look very good.
