Halsey paid a fan’s $250 speeding ticket for this excellent reason

Getting a speeding ticket can ruin your entire day. There’s the stress of getting pulled over, followed by having to pay the fine itself—because those aren’t cheap. But Halsey recently made one fan’s day just a little bit better by covering her speeding ticket.

On May 16th, the singer released a new single, “Nightmare,” along with an accompanying music video. The track is definitely a banger, especially if you need to let off some steam. And one Twitter user named Francesca recently admitted that she was jamming out so hard, she got a speeding ticket.

“Driving home from Penn State I got pulled over/given a ticket for the first time ever and when asked why I was going 99 in a 70 I was ~dangerously~ close to admitting I was bangin out to @halsey’s new song Nightmare,” she tweeted on May 21st. false

This alone is a pretty entertaining story. But things got more interesting when Halsey noticed the tweet.

The singer retweeted the story, asking for Francesca’s Venmo handle and cautioning her to “DRIVE SAFELY PLEASE!!!”

Halsey, it turns out, is a woman of her word. A little more than an hour later, Francesca shared a screenshot of her Venmo account, into which $250 had been deposited. A note reading “Drive SAFELY!!!!!!” accompanied the funds. false

All’s well that ends well. Of course, speeding is dangerous, and we don’t recommend trying to duplicate this fan’s stroke of luck. But this story shows that Halsey will do just about anything for her fans, and we love her for it.
