(Newser) – Lady Gaga is apparently none the worse for wear after falling off the stage with a fan during a concert Thursday night. The scary incident happened in Las Vegas after Gaga brought a male fan on stage. Multiple videos are circulating online, including this from TMZ. A different angle is here. Gaga apparently brought "Jack" on stage because he had given her a nice letter, per Mashable. He gave her a hug and appeared to try to lift her up, at which point Gaga played along and wrapped her legs around his waist. As the crowd cheered, the pair hopped around a bit, until Jack fell off the stage still holding Gaga.

By all accounts, Gaga landed hard. NBC News notes that the entertainer suffers from the musculoskeletal disorder fybromyalgia, but she got back on stage with the help of a ladder, and even brought Jack with her. She told him not to feel bad and told the crowd and all her supporters not to shame him. He's apparently getting shamed, however, because TMZ says he responded Friday: "I WASN'T DRUNK OR ANYTHING ELSE PEOPLE ARE ACCUSING ME OF. I WASN'T ANYTHING BUT IN AWE OF HER." Gaga, meanwhile, posted a photo of herself in an ice bath, which she says is a regular post-show treatment. (Read more Lady Gaga stories.)
