CLAIM: Chris Brown & Rihanna “Made Out Backstage” at MTV Video Music Awards

Truth rating: 0

Chris Brown and Rihanna’s quick kiss on the cheek at the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday has apparently led certain sites to believe it’s okay to make up what happened after their brief public interaction.

“We all saw Chris & Rihanna lock lips on stage, but it turns out the two also made out backstage!” blares a so-called HollywoodLife “exclusive.”

First off, they did not “lock lips.” Second, it did not occur “on stage.”

Anyway, according to the webloid, “The two couldn’t keep their hands off each other backstage” — conveniently out of view of any MTV cameras. HollywoodLife cites a so-called “pal” of Brown’s, who claims, “I knew the n***a was gonna do it big and he did. He kissed his girl in front of y’all, but the n***a gave her some tongue backstage too. I’m telling you, this is the beginning.” The supposed source adds that Brown’s “n****s was right there blocking them when they was doing they thing.”

“They couldn’t be apart backstage and we had to barricade them in this room,” the “friend” claims. And what about Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran? The “source” says, “I don’t know what K.T. thinking, but I told you from day one she cool with whatever C do,” adding, “Her days are probably numbered, s**t, I don’t know. All the n***a talking about right now is Ri.”

Well, this is all very dramatic, totally made up, and worded to be racially offensive. Oh yeah, it’s also entirely FALSE. A source close to Brown assures Gossip Cop that he and Rihanna “did NOT make out backstage.”
