Chris Brown may have used eye drops at BET Awards to fake tears

We knew Chris Brown's performance at Sunday's BET Awards, where he broke down crying while performing Michael Jackson's Man in the Mirror, would be assailed as being fake. We're just surprised it took people more than three days to make accusations, since someone just told Us that Chris used eye drops to fake his tears. Surprise!

A witness tells the mag that moments before taking the stage, Brown's bodyguard gave the 21-year-old performer tear-inducing eye drops: "He rubbed it in and he started crying," the source says. Brown's rep calls the claim "completely untrue," of course.

And,w ell, that's pretty much it. There's no proof, other than a sickly feeling in the pit of your stomach that once again, you were duped by a manipulative publicity stunt. That should produce some real tears, if you think about it too much.
