Controversy surrounding Chris Brown's breakdown performance at BET Awards won't go away easily despite the fact that his representative and A-list pals have come to his support. And the latest to comment on this issue was BET's Executive Vice President of Entertainment and Music Programming Stephen Hill.

In an interview with AllHipHop, Hill slammed recent report mentioning Brown used eye drops to fake his cry. "I think the pressure of the year and the lyrics of that song really just resonated. And, as someone who was backstage, there was nothing fake about that," the network's showrunner said. "Story today about like his bodyguard gave him something to induce tears. It's just not true."

He shared his insight more, "I've been around actors who cry and when you fake cry, you don't get...your throat doesn't get swollen like it does [when you cry for real]. When he was trying to sing, he couldn't get anything out. That's a hard thing to fake. I appreciate people wanting to create controversy, but this guy has gone though a lot this past year, let this emotion be what it is. Everybody comes to the moment where you gotta make that change."

When asked about Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles' no show, Hill put to rest rumors they have feud with Brown. He explained that the couple's absence happened simply because of scheduling conflicts. He stated, "We have this conversation almost every year. And, some years we are really fortunate when Jay-Z and Beyonce are in the house and other times, they go on vacation. But I can absolutely say without reservation that there was no conversation at all around, 'If Chris Brown's coming, I'm not coming.' That's just false."

everybody definitely sins. imagine if God never forgives us and keeps reminding us of all we have done. do you think everbody will be able to live without being covered with shame and regret everyday. this is probably how he feels right now with everbody criticising him. as far as he has asked for forgiveness i believe God has forgiven him. i advice everyone to focus on his/her life because its what you say and do in this world that will be rewarded. stop wasting your time criticising others.

i would like to believe Chris brown tears where real. at-least thats what i thought. but after hearing from my friends the same night who were actually there they told me they saw his body guard put eye drops in his eyes, even before the 1st story broke about this. then you have another witness saying that they saw the same thing. ive watched the performance over and over again and something is telling me that he faked the tears. if he didnt than thats good. but if did that doesn't sit well with me. using MJ to get sympathy from the crowd doesn't sit well with me. however speaking, i do believe he should be forgiven. its been over a year and Chris Brown has already apologized countless times. everyone makes mistakes and should be forgiven. i could understand if it happened more than once but its only happened once. but like i said IF he faked it...smh

i agree i knew for a fact that the crying was genuine. They probably won't believe anything Chris does is real. This has gone far enough and i wish it would just stop.
