Lauryn Hill ordered a heckler to leave her concert in Chicago, Illinois after he reportedly complained about the show. The former Fugees star is said to have started her concert at the city's House of Blues venue almost an hour behind schedule last week (ends20Jul14), and she came under fire from an audience member during the set. Reports suggest the fan cursed at Hill and made a rude hand gesture, so she asked him to leave. In video footage obtained by TMZ.com, Hill is seen ranting at the concertgoer, "When I get up on this stage, don't be disrespecting me... Seriously, you can go. Please refund... A little patience is too much. It's alright, you can go, I would prefer that. You're going to mess up the night for the rest of these people... We'll get your money refunded and you can go. I'm alright with that... I don't need to win you over, you don't need to win me over... I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything, understand that?... You can say whatever you want to, I don't give a rat's a**. I do this because I love it. Give this man his money back." Hill then yells to security guards and orders them to escort the fan from the venue. She continued her set once he had left.
