A local news reporter, Mario Diaz, got an unexpected surprise from singer Erykah Badu during a liveshot report, where Badu tried to kiss the reporter.
Mario — a reporter for New York’s WPIX at 11– was in the middle of reporting former “Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf‘s recent arrest, when a woman wearing a large white cowboy hat awkwardly walked into the frame and tried to lay one on him.
The woman turned out to the chart-topping songstress, but her star status didn’t impress Diaz, who immediately pushed her away.
Watch the bizarre video below.
The singer denied it on social media, but later tweeted, “Sorry Mario.” The incident happened during WPIX’s 5 p.m. newscast on Friday (June 27). Diaz didn’t know who the woman was — pushed her away then called her “a fan.”
