Drake Skips BET Awards To Avoid Chris Brown
Drake shockingly decided last minute not to attend the BET Awards, despite being up for 12 awards. Sources report that Drizzy just didn’t want his feud with Chris to flare up again.
Via Hollywood Life reports:
Drake was practically set to be the guest of honor tonight, June 30, at the BET Awards. But the rapper, who is nominated for 12 awards, surprisingly pulled out of attending the ceremony last-minute. Here’s why.
A source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “the reason Drake isn’t [at the BET Awards] is 100 percent all about Chris Brown.”
Drake and Chris have a long, heated history that’s involved bottle-shattering bar fights and countless disses, and the source says that “Drake took the steps to not let anything happen” again.
You have to give some credit to Drake for taking the high road, but we can’t believe that these two groups can’t just avoid each other completely. The level of hate that exists between Drake and Breezy — that they can’t even be in the same room with each other — is truly astonishing.
With Drake opting out of the BET Awards, it seems that both stars have acknowledged that their feud has gotten out of hand, and that it needs to die down.
“Chris doesn’t want to talk about Drake or anybody but himself, what he’s doing and keeping it positive,” a source close to the singer told HollywoodLife.com exclusively after Drake dissed Chris in GQ magazine. “He left that stuff in last year — he’s doing him and staying focused on the positive.”
Hopefully Drake feels the same way now and both of these guys can move on with their lives. Who knows, maybe next year both of them will be able to attend the BET Awards
