We had to laugh when Chris Brown broke down in tears at the BET Awards last Sunday during his tribute to Michael Jackson. Brown had to leave the stage, so overcome was he with emotion at either the passing of the music icon or the fact that he was allowed to sing somewhere besides a boxing ring, we’re still not sure. And now it turns out, those tears might not have even been real.
Us Weekly is reporting that a backstage witness claims to have seen Chris’s bodyguard hand him eye-drops to help induce his tears. Brown’s rep says, of course, the allegations aren’t true and that Chris was just “was moved by the opportunity to pay tribute to his idol.” This guy can’t catch a break, he’s damned if he cries and damned if he needs help crying, which is sorta sad. Of course, if he hadn’t beaten Rihanna, we would all be mad at Us Weekly right now for even alleging that he used eye drops, so he dug his own grave there.
