Joaquin Phoenix Gets Hostile With A Heckler

Joaquin Phoenix Gets Hostile With A Heckler

Joaquin Phoenix arrives at LIV Nightclub at Fontainebleau before his hip-pop performance at the venue on Wednesday (March 11) in Miami, Florida.

The 34-year-old actor/rapper jumped off stage in the middle of a performance at the club to confront someone who was heckling his rapping. “We have a (double expletive) in the audience. I’ve got a $1 million in the bank. What have you got?,” Joaquin said before jumping into the crowd.

Security guards had to separate the two and then dragged Joaquin away. Watch the video here!

Last month Joaquin visited The Late Show With David Letterman to promote his latest movie, Two Lovers, which turned into an extremely awkward interview.

    what the hell happened to him …. He was a great actor

  • SAYINI

    This guy is such a joke! “I have one million at the bank,” he´s just stupid. He makes K-fed look like a real rapper.

  • zack

    Sad to see someone so talented, go crazy.

  • Cathey

    every crazy thing he does is for that documentary his brother is making.
    at least that’s what i’ve heard.

  • BECCA

    Zack I’m with you what a SHAME he dosen’t know what he has maybe in a couple years he will know what he lost. IT WILL BE TOO LATE

  • MickeyVonDutch

    Cuckoo, cukcoo! One hundred percent full proof straitjacket material.

  • Ceebee

    It’s not HIS brother who’s making the doc, but Ben Afleck’s bro: Casey.
    Sadly Joaquin’s brother passed away years ago.

    I still think this is made up with a reason. Won’t believe no one would stop him, like his Mom, sisters or perhaps Casey.
    Mark my word…..

  • Heather

    Could this not have happened a month ago when I was staying at the hotel?! Dammit. Always intriguing to watch a trainwreck in action, fake or not.

  • http://reen1@cox.net Gasol_fan16

    2 words for you: F*cking Crazy! :lol:

  • Mousse

    he’s a sick puppy.

  • http://www.no-nadie-no.blogspot.com Cooh

    I hope this isn’t real,it would be too sad to see him going down,such a great artist,maybe he has a reason,hopefully

  • dianel

    I thought whenJoaquin was on the Letterman show it was all pubticity and maybe this is more of the same hope so anyway

  • Tom

    Wish he would stop this bit he is doing. It is old, boring and I am losing respect for him.

  • myobservation

    I agree, it’s quite tragic to watch his demise…makes ya kinda feel bad for his family too..

  • OH MY

    Dude looks like a hairy tampon.

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    even if this sh*t was a joke for a documentary, it’s still messed up for him to do it. Fckin looney

  • Rokom

    I think he is still a great actor, or he is bypolar

  • athena

    Well, if he keeps getting hostile, he may no longer have his $1 million in the bank. That’s not good to through that in anyone’s face…as obnoxious as hecklers are, Joaquin is joining in the ranks.

    He should step aside and maybe invest in someones’ career instead of making a farce out of his. What’s going on with him anyway, he’s not that disturbed….is he? Obviously not, he remembers he has a million dollars in his bank. I can use some of that money myself.

    Why don’t he get on the down low with some real rappers and see how “rapper” he think he is…rapping surfaced from a social economic group of people that focused on the need to be free from the consistent daily confines and restrictions within the rural communities.

    Jaquin I’m sure has faced hard times, and he did grow up with privileges, so for him to be crying…ooops, I mean rapping about whatever, is an insult to many. I dunno, maybe someone told him he’d never work in Hollywood again…then again, I don’t even know why I care.

    He should take his bloody millions and go travel the world or something…he’s been seen and heard, now get another lifestyle or something…How annoyed I am…I wish I could sue him for mental anguish…I’d take his millions…LOL…

  • athena

    ooh, how that happened? Sorry about the double letter sent.

  • tom

    Somebody please get him some help… Before he hurts himself.

  • http://buttafaces.com lakers fan in boston

    i have no idea who this guy is but i keep hearing about him
    i saw the video of him atking the person, he looks so stupid with that beard
    does he take drugs, cuz he looks seriously fucked up everytime i see him

  • MickeyVonDutch

    #17 LOL.

  • Karla

    What the heck? It’s bad enough that Jouquin is making as a$$ of himself, but why is Casey going along with this? What’s the point?

  • Angela

    Joaquin stop acting like a fool, and become hot again pleasse!

  • Scout

    I have been watching this dramam for months now, andI’m tired of it. I wish he would stop making an Ass of himself. I did hear from someone in Gainesville, FLA, that his mother is sick. This could be why he’s in Miami a lot recently. Gainesville is a few hours from Miami, and Joaquin is VERY close to his mom. This does make sense with his odd behavior lately.

  • http://www.madonna.com Madonna

    He’s nuts.

  • River was my favorite

    River Phoenix was always the ‘hot’ one imo. Too bad he died so young. His career had really started to take off and I think it would have been much bigger than his brother’s if he’d lived.

  • Mihay

    I’m sorry but this is no publicity stunt! This dude is off his rocker and needs to get back on his meds.

    Too bad..he was a great actor.

  • Diana

    Ummm does everyone realize that he has been documented (filmed) doing all this? I smell a movie project a la Borat…

  • Megan

    I believe he wants people to hate him just so they’ll drop off and leave him alone. No one will remember him much in a couple of years anyway. He could’ve just not done anything and achieved the same result. Also, he’s weeding out fickle fans in a way.

    Go to the southflorida sun sentinel video at http://southflorida.sun-sentinel.com/features/sfl-bn-0312joaquin-phoenix,0,724455.story

    You’ll have to get it paused at just the right moment. Between 1:03 and 1:04 of their video, when the flash lights up, you will see a cameraman with his camera pointed down directly over the “fight”. How convenient, wouldn’t you say?

  • Niki

    They also have some still shots when he goes off the stage.

  • Niki

    And the man with glasses standing next to Casey onstage (in picture 11) is ‘restraining’ Phoenix (see picture 9).

  • Niki

    Or maybe it was just the access hollywood guy? They have good footage of Joaq arguing, although I can’t make out what they’re saying. Or maybe his crew gave it to them. Who knows.

    If it’s some creative endeavor, he needs to give up on the idea. It’s IMPOSSIBLE to fool everyone. All you have to do is look at videos and pause them. Cameras are everywhere anymore!

  • Claudia

    He’s trying to control the media…he’s playing us as the fool…I just got confirmation that he’s still dating Christy Bella Joiner…and they are serious. I wonder how she feels about of all this. I think this publicity stunt will backfire. We have the control not Joaquin. We should boycott anything he puts out. We should be punking him…

  • Penny

    Here is the thing. If all of this is a joke, it’s not funny. In fact it makes him look like a fool and like an asshole. If all of this is true the boy needs professional help. Either way I think he has damaged his career.

  • julie

    Hey! Give us and evidence that he’s dating with this girl and I will believe you ok??? Stop pretending you know something!

  • Trine

    Please someone save him…..stop this nonsense…before it is to late

    Joaquin what the h…. happened to you…

    I want you back Teddybear <3 Miss you …… Love U !

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com Custom T

    He needs to stop doing drugs before this ends tragicly.

  • sally

    He’s with Liv Tyler again, learnt it from a friend who knows him. That’s why she’s in LA since a moment

  • anha

    sure sally. Learned it from a friend who knows him huh?…ok…I believe you.

  • Susan

    Several publicity people, who have certain gossip websites, have confirmed that they saw Christy Bella Joiner in Miami with Joaquin last week or a few weeks ago. This only means she was spotted with him. They are friends. These sources have stated that she was told by a family member to move on because Joaquin is not ready to commit to anyone right now.

  • celebrityobsessed.

    This is all a giant hoax!

  • Hi

    This spic, kike needs to go back to where he came from; Puerto Rico and get the hell out of this country.

  • Buggaboo

    This sounds like a really stressful time for Phoenix. I hope he gets another chance to perform on stage and in his own music videos even though I don’t know him.
