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.

    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…..

    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.

    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…

    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?

    Scout Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Megan Says:

    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?

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

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

    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!

    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…

    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 *******. If all of this is true the boy needs professional help. Either way I think he has damaged his career.

    Susan Says:

    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.

    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.
