Two disgruntled Beyonce fans are suing the pop megastar for allegedly getting trampled at a Chicago stop during her Mrs. Carter World Tour this past December. 

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Raquel Castellanos and Gabriella Davidson lined-up early outside the United Center on December 13 to get a front-row spot for the evening's concert. But as time passed, fans piled up behind them and when the doors were finally opened, the two were trampled, leaving them unconscious and with broken bones. 

"As the hours passed, the group became larger, more dense and more anxious about how, when and where the gate(s) would be released and where ticket holders and fans were supposed to enter The United Center—none of which was explained,” the lawsuit states. "To the contrary, The United Center encouraged it by the set-up which it created and controlled."

Along with Bey, the two are also suing the United Center and the concert promoter Live Nation, seeking an undisclosed amount of money for damages.
