A pop star is fighting for her life after being stabbed by a crazy fan in Japan.

20-year-old Mayu Tomita was rushed to a hospital, where she is in a coma after the man stabbed her numerous times before an event in Tokyo.

Police found a three-inch folding knife at the scene. A bloodied mask and a trail of blood was also found on the stairs near the stage, where the star was supposed to perform that night.

Police arrested 27-year-old Tomohiro Iwazaki, who made threats against the star on her social media account after she returned a gift he sent her.

Iwazaki allegedly confessed to stabbing Tomita in the neck and chest.

Iwazaki said that he attacked the star because she sent him back a watch that he sent her as a gift and he did not like the rejection from the woman, according to police.
