A rep for Chris Brown has denied reports that Jay-Z kiboshed plans for the singer to hit the stage at the BET Awards on Sunday night (June 28), after the rapper said he would back out of his performance if Brown was part of the ceremony.
Stemming from Brown’s assault of former girlfriend Rihanna, a protege of Jay-Z, a source told the New York Post he “wasn’t having it. He threatened to pull out of the show if Chris was involved, so BET dropped Chris.”
Brown’s rep was quick to step up, issuing a statement saying, “That’s not true — he was never confirmed to perform.”
