(CNN) — Reality TV star Tila Tequila suffered facial cuts when she was pelted with rocks and bottles while performing at a music festival in Illinois early Saturday, according to a witness and a law enforcement official.

“She’s pretty cut up,” said a performer who saw the violence at the “Gathering of the Juggalos” in rural Hardin County, Illinois. The witness asked not to be identified so that he does not anger the juggalos.

Tequila, a Playboy model who also sings, posted a Twitter message Saturday, saying she would sue the festival, which is organized for fans of the hip-hop group Insane Clown Posse.

“Pretty soon, the owners who run the juggalos will be bankrupt,” she tweeted.

The fans are mostly young people who sometimes wear clown make-up and are referred to as juggalos and juggalettes.

Festival organizers did not immediately respond to CNN requests for a response.

The performer said a mob of hundreds chased Tequila from the stage and surrounded the trailer where she sought refuge. They rocked the trailer and smashed its windows, he said.

Tequila eventually escaped, but only after windows in her SUV were smashed, the witness said.

Hardin County Sheriff Tom Seiner and a statement posted online by Tequila offered similar descriptions of the events.

“I went onstage and immediately, before I even got on stage, dudes were throwing huge stone rocks in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair … cuz they threw firecrackers on stage,” she wrote.

The witness, who was standing in the rear of the stage, said the crowd of about 2,000 was immediately angry toward Tequila and she was unable to turn them around.

“She was taunting them,” he said. “She didn’t know how to handle them. She didn’t understand the dynamic.”

The rocks and bottles flew harder and faster when Tequila bared her breasts, he said.

“She took her top off and they got really violent,” he said.

Tequila continued to perform even after her face started bleeding, he said. “She was holding a towel to her head, blood pouring down her face,” he said.

“It was scary as hell!” Tequila wrote.

This was not the only violent incident at the festival early Saturday, Seiner said.

A 49-year-old Georgia man was arrested for allegedly stabbing another man in the abdomen just hours earlier, he said.

  1. Must admit this is unfortunate for people to act this way. Although I don’t see why Tila was even at the GOTJ 2010. It’s not her crowd and of course she did everything right to aggravate us. Just because you show your tits doesn’t mean you get respect, it’s more insulting. I disagree with the violent approach to it but I also don’t think she should have been there. Also she can’t sue the “owners” because performers sign a waiver for this kind of shit. Good luck on trying to arrest or sue the 2000 people chasing you Tila.
