(ANI): Rapper Jay-Z thrashed Chris Brown's hopes of returning on
stage at the BET Awards, in a bid to pay tribute to late King of
Pop Michael Jackson. Brown has been low-key since beating up his
ex-girlfriend (and Jay-Z's artist), Rihanna, earlier this year.
Apparently, Brown was supposed to participate in the Jacko
tribute at LA's Shrine Auditorium, but Jay-Z pulled the plug on the
plans. "Jay-Z wasn't having it. He threatened to pull out of the
show if Chris was involved, so BET dropped Chris," the New York
Post quoted a source as saying.
A representative for Brown said: "That's not true -- he was
never confirmed to perform." Brown was close to Jackson and
performed 'Thriller' at the World Music Awards in 2006.
