Chris Brown Was Not Shut Out Of BET Awards

Tuesday, June 30, 2009 , Posted by Ashton at 6/30/2009

The rumors, for the most part, claim that BET had booked Brown for the awards show but pulled the plug due to complaints from influential people who were troubled by Brown's altercation with Rihanna. The Source claimed that Jay-Z demanded that Brown not be on the show. Other rumors claim Cover Girl, for which Rihanna is a spokesperson, made a similar demand; the Daily News, citing an "insider," said both Jay and the Reverend Al Sharpton, who has been a spokesperson for the Jackson family in recent days, had a hand in quashing Brown's appearance (Sharpton told MTV News on Tuesday that the rumors have no validity).
Although Brown himself has not commented on the reports, a source close to his camp told MTV News that Brown was never confirmed to be a part of the show and the rumors regarding Brown and BET were untrue; a spokesperson for BET corroborated that information, adding that "the rumors are false."
While Brown was not available for comment, he issued a statement after Jackson's death that spelled out the influence the legend had on him.
"Michael Jackson is the reason why I do music and why I am an entertainer," Brown said. "I am devastated by this great loss, and I will continue to be humbled and inspired by his legacy. My prayers are with his family. Michael will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. He's the greatest ... the best ever. No one will ever be better."
Brown was among the first to pay homage to Jackson, who passed away last week, in song: He teamed up with Game, Boyz II Men, Diddy and others on a song called "Better on the Other Side," which hit the Internet the day after Jackson's death.
