When Chris Brown broke down crying during his BET Awards tribute to Michael Jackson, America couldn’t trip over themselves fast enough to say he’s off the hook for biting and punching Rihanna about the neck and face. Which, surprise, was his plan all along because he faked it. Us Magazine reports:
Before he took the stage to belt out “Man in the Mirror,” a backstage source tells Us one of Brown’s bodyguards gave the singer, 21, tear-inducing eye drops.
Brown’s rep denies it, telling Us that Brown simply “was moved by the opportunity to pay tribute to his idol.” But the witness says Brown definitely used drops.
Says the source, “He rubbed it in and he started crying.”
I’m actually going to give Chris Brown the benefit of the doubt here and say this story probably didn’t happen, but only because his tears were clearly over how fly his dancing was. “Shit, I nailed that moonwalk! Had I known it was going to be that crisp, I would’ve killed the bitch. *sobs* Thank you, Jesus!”
