Lana Del Rey has left fans concerned after she was reportedly attacked by a crazy fan on Tuesday

Video footage, taken by a concert-goer during the Antwerp leg of her tour, appears to show a man jumping out of the audience and landing on what appears to be her as she exits the stage.

The individual was seen dramatically leaping into the air in the short clip and landing on a woman dressed in a white top - leaving fans rushing to Twitter to ask if Lana was 'okay'.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Lana for further comment.

While many concert-goers didn't seem to witness the reported attack on Lana, given it was at the end of her performance, they were still left concerned as they joined a plethora of other fans to ask of her well-being on Twitter.

'@LanaDelRey i'm so sorry for what happened in the pit last night �� are you alright? did the fan harm you?'

'I was in Antwerp, and I saw them, WTF? They are no respect to her but don t be worry, the security make a good job and put her in safe immediately.'

'Did the fan harm you?' Lana supporters were left rushing to Twitter to ask if Lana was 'okay'

'Can you tell us what exactly happened? I think I saw in the video that he jumped on her and then fell together but that's scary.'

'Lana is okay?' and 'I’m so angry and scared. Does anyone know if she got hurt????.'

The scary situation comes after Lana announced the end of the lawsuit she claimed Radiohead filed against her over her 2017 song Get Free.

'I mean now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song any time I want, right?' Lana said onstage Sunday, JustJared reports.

She was playing Sao Paolo's Interlagos racetrack for Lollapalooza Sao Paulo 2018.

Radiohead, who formed in 1985, apparently felt that Get Free is unduly similar to their own 1993 single Creep.

Lana tweeted this January: 'It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing - I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.'

However, a spokesman for Warner/Chappell, the publishers of Radiohead's music, disputed this version of events in a statement quoted by the New York Times.

He began: 'As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives.

'It’s clear that the verses of Get Free use musical elements found in the verses of Creep and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favor of all writers of Creep.

Yet he countered: 'To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they "will only accept 100%" of the publishing of Get Free.'

As Rolling Stone pointed out, Creep itself was so much like The Hollies 1974 record The Air That I Breathe that Radiohead were sued by the latter's songwriters.

Mike Hazlewood and Albert Hammond, the writers in question, themselves got part of the publishing when the matter was settled out of court.

Get Free is a cut off Lana's fifth and latest studio album Lust For Life, whereas Creep appeared on Radiohead's inaugural album Pablo Honey.
