Were Chris Brown's tears in his Michael Jackson tribute real?
Us Weekly says that, according to an unnamed “backstage source,” one of Brown's bodyguards gave the 21-year-old singer some tear-inducing eye drops before he sang “Man in the Mirror” during his Jackson tribute at the BET Awards on Sunday. "He rubbed it in and he started crying," the magazine quoted the source.
However, Brown's publicist, Chris Chambers of The Chamber Group, told Newsday’s Frank Lovece, “Whoever the source is, it's completely untrue. Chris' performance was performed from his heart. It's a complete untruth from whoever said that to the publication."
