Chris Brown: Fake Tears at the BET Awards? (VIDEO)

Chris Brown: Fake Tears at the BET Awards? (VIDEO)-photo

Don't cry for Chris Brown. He apparently has stage props to do that for him.

The "I Can Transform Ya" singer delivered a teary-eyed performance of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" at Sunday's BET Awards, but according to a source, Brown's lachrymosity might not have been so much the product of heartfelt emotion, but of tear-inducing eye drops administered by his bodyguards.

According to a source familiar with the performance,

"He rubbed it in and he started crying."

Huh; if Chris wanted to work up a crying jag, you'd think he could have just looked at the sales numbers of his latest album.

For the record, Brown's rep denies the allegation, calling it "completely untrue." Of course, celebrity reps say a lot of things.

Check out the video of Crybaby Chris' performance below, and render your verdict in the comments section: Real or fake?

    Why does everyone constantly ridicule this man. If it was anyone else we wouldnt even be having this debate about faking tears. its sad that that one mistake he made over a year ago is still following him in his career. As much as i Love CB we all know how c*cky he is and if he really wanted to make a comeback he wouldnt have cried to do it, he would of wanted to show everyone how talented he was & still is. he also wouldnt use a tribute to his idol and mentor to get back his career. it takes a lot for a man to cry and his breakdown was deff. real.

    [quote=DeArryka Williams]i would've done the same thing to Rhianna would you let someone, (i dont care if it was a woman or a man) continually abuse you? That wasn't the first time she hit him and all he did was stand up for himself.Chris would never hit a woman just because he was angry, he saw what his mother had to go through and i doubt he'd want to put anyone else through that. What about Rhianna this wasnt her first violent offence.In Barbados she smashed her brother's head in to glass because she made him mad. Oh yeah, i believer she was innocent . Ugh you people are such hipocrites and his tears were not fake MJ was his idol, he freaked out and almost cried when he got a call from Michael on his 18th birthday. Imagine how he felt then and Michael had just spoken with him about this whole Rhianna debacle.The song also hit him, because he's trying to make a change in his life. Haters back off, b/c he doesnt care Im a woman and I sooo agree with u!! she even said herself "so what if I hit him first, does that make it ok what he did?" the bitch is crazy and you could push any man to hit u!! No one is gonna sit there and put up with someone putting hands on them

    You Know no one truly knows the whole story, No one talks about how Rihanna was slappin the sh!t outta him in public and used to belittle him in public.. Im a woman but I hate how biased this country is! Abuse is abuse.. Tiger woods wife is the "victim" cause he cheated but no one talks about how she beat him with a club and caused him to get into an accident! People reach boiling points and no one can sit and take abuse without retaliating back.. Rihanna has even said herself she busted a glass bottle over her brothers head, and said "so what if I hit him first? does that make it ok what he did?" Woman need to stop going around thinking they can put hands on men and the man wont flip and hit her back!! We're all human and have boiling points!!!

    he didn't fake it. imho it was real, chris still have an heart obviously, and now mu mustn't think that every thing he does is bad -.-

    I think that the tears were real, I think when he sang that song, he realised what an absolute tool he has been. But I also think it was a little staged.. I think a thought would have been passed before he went on, after all, this would have been rehearsed? He knew what he was singing and for what cause. He knows the world hates him, I think anyone in that situation would break down. I personally hate him as a person, hes arrogant, annoying, snobby and doesnt deserve to have a good career after everything thats happened. Mouthing off on radio stations about people not buying his records... erm your a girl beater. Good performer.. Bad decision. did you ever look for the reason why he beat the sh*t out of her. She's a violent bitch and she repeatedly abused him. Her brother even testified that she used to beat the sh*t out of him and even smashed his head through a glass window on one occasion if anything she's the dangerous one

    chris brown has made mistakes and made it public he was thoroughly sorry and he went through a rough patch at the time. he is human and he can cry like all of us, if you read any of his profiles, MJ was an idol of his and if u hear the lyrics of man in the mirror, it says 'im starting with the man in the mirror, im asking him to change his ways, and for it to be any clearer, if you wanna make a change then take a look at yourself' and in my opinion these lyrics are apart of his life because he made the mistake. everyone should realise that people make mistakes and if he wasnt in the spotlight then no one would be judging him.

    you know whats pathetic im a guy who doesnt have a sensitive side and this still seemed very real to me, but you know whats sadder then Chris Brown hitting rihanna....yall people who think that his tears were an act, right... his tears were an act but justin beibers were as real as can be....just stop yall look worst than chris brown right now, hes human and he can cry just like anybody else, you know whos the real fakers...you people whho criticize him, and for what, you think he'll stop making music? no..The truth is Chris brown has forgiven hisself, rihanna has forgiven him, now its time for "human beings" to do the same,cas far as im concerned he can get hit by a car and be paralyzed god forbid, and yall would still think its an act, look at your self in the mirror before you look at someone elses reflection.

    We love Chris and all I want to say is his performance was very real. The crazy mess that the critics and a witness is saying are the fake ones. They need to stop lying on Chris and stop trying to make him look bad. Chris is brillant and we look forward to seeing more of him doing his thing.

    he just faking or he is doing that to impress rihanna that his a different person or hes just making a impression because when he won an award later on won a award and said i let you down before but wont let you down again and that was supposed to go with the act

    I swear it's about time we stop beating Chris brown down. In no way shape or form do I justify what he did but I do believe one learns from his or her mistakes. People are so quick to pass judgement on others but fail to take a good look at themselves. No one questioned Rihanna's fake ass interview with Diana Sawyer, and why she decided to speak on what happened that night right before his album release. The outside world has no idea how that relationship could have been before that night. Chris Brown was totally wrong for what he did to that girl, but the world has no right to continue to beat him down the way they have.

    I saw the performance and I think chris has been suffering scince his blow up with rihanna, and all the changes he's been going through, the tears I felt looked real cause he has alot of emotion he still must get out and that performance had him tear up, not because of tribute, cause of his career and how it is going?

    OMG- So he messed up bad with rihanna. GET OVER IT!!! He is obviously really sorry for that. He has written multiple songs that prove that, and he was a massive fan on MJ's. Even I teared up in it, why wouldn't he. I love you Chris Brown :)

    I believe he was naturally affected at that moment, being that this was in front of his peers that verbally voiced their disappointment in him after what happened, as well as million's watching on tv... I do however think that as soon as he saw the positive response from the audience, the clapping, the shock/smiles and cheering, then he decided to stretch it out a bit... But no one can say what it was, he's the only one that will ever know the truth on his performance... A person has to want to change and God is truly the only one that can work miracle's... I wish no one ill will or place judgement, he will have his day before God and in the meantime he has a choice in this life to be forgiven... Only time will tell...

    Chris was feeling those lyrics. I think he was really thinking about Michael and himself. Life is short, nothing is guaranteed.You gotta make changes in order to be better. Celebrities are humans too.

    hollywoodlife said that those report are false, they said their reporter was standing near Chris Brown before he went on stage and after and his bodyguard was not by his side. why don't you guys post that.

    I think what he did on the BET awards was true to his heart. Now Im not saying that the crying was fake and Im not saying that they where real but what I'am saying is let the man live his life. If he wanted to put on a crying show for michael Jackson then good for him. He did a real good job on the show. People get beat and killed everyday and nobody really cares inless its a love one or a friend. Let him live his life. We only have one good people. Dont forget it...

    Honestly, I think it was faked. It's sad that we can't take it as sincere. However, we live in a world where everything is engineered for effect. It would be nice for people in Hollywood to just be themselves. I'd like to believe when he said he was sorry for letting his fans down that he really did mean it. I've loved Chris before and I'd like to be able to trust him again. Many celebs let fame control them and it's never for the best.

    That man made a mistake and has to deal with the reality of what he did daily. Who are we to judge him? Respect him for being a great entertainer. He was one of the best performers of the evening, we don't know if this source is even telling the truth. Stop hating on that man. If you don't like him then don't purchase his albums, turn the station when he comes on, but let him live, and look @ yourself before you pass any judge him.

    ... I'm not defending the fact that he hit a woman... pretty badly or whatever but jeez he's only human. Why can't he be sad? Why do people think that he's not sorry for what he's done? I don't believe this is a scandal. Why would someone break down and show an intimate part of themselves with the world just to get the crowds "empathy"... I believe it.
