Shakira robbed during concert

Singer Shakira was robbed by a fan during a concert -- while she was mid-song!

Shakira has learned the hard way that not all fans are good ones. The Latina singer was robbed during a concert in Mexico, mid-song, when a so-called fan slipped one of the crooner's rings right off her finger!


Here's how it went down:

Shakira was interacting with fans while singing, shaking hands the way performers often do during that canned part of a performance when they want to appear literally in touch.

In a dastardly move, one fan slipped a ring off of Shakira's finger as she walked by, then quickly disappeared into the crowd!

As you can see from this video, Shakira noticed what happened right away -- but chose to continue her performance instead of punishing the entire crowd for one ne'er do well's bad deeds.

Hopefully the bauble was a costume piece and not part of Shakira's personal collection!
