The new rapper then continued to call out the audience member, announcing over the mic, "So, we have a f*****g a*****e in the audience… I got a million dollar f*****g backing account, what do you got b***h?"

Joaquin then dropped the mic and jumped off the stage, going into the audience after the heckler.

It is not clear in the video if a physical alteration occurred between the former actor and the unidentified audience member, but security can be seen swarming the audience as people flee from the commotion.

The DJ attempted to save the moment by playing music as the audience chanted, "Joaquin! Joaquin! Joaquin!'" as security dragged the "Two Lovers" star away.

According to Radar, before the heckler incident, Joaquin kept the audience waiting for almost four hours, not showing up on stage until around 2 AM and performed lyrics that were barley audible.
