Rihanna Throws Money In Executive’s Face At BET Awards
What happens when you piss of a bad gal?
While preparing to step out on stage to intro a teaser for her “B*tch Better Have My Money” music video, the pop star got into a brief yet intense spat with BET’s President of Programming, Stephen G. Hill.
Much of their discussion is inaudible, but apparently Rihanna wanted to take a couple stacks of money on stage with her to promo the video — either to toss into the crowd or just flash around a little bit — but the network wasn’t having it.
Obviously deciding to shoot the messenger, Rih tossed the two bands of bills she had in her hands square at his forehead, and Stephen ended up catching the fade from some cash…all while cameras rolled:
Everything happened so fast that most people thought it was somehow a part of the big video reveal. But upon further inspection, it seemed more like Rih was pissed in real life and Stephen was dumbstruck:
Damn! So what did Stephen G. Smith have to say about getting smacked with a stack?? Hit the flip…

Stephen referenced the incident (skit?) on his Twitter moments later…
And about an hour later, said all is forgiven and he and Rihanna made up.
But what did Rih have to say after the fact? Turn the page…
Apparently it really IS all good in the hood…at least as far as social media is concerned. Rih reposted the same photo of her and Stephen to her own Instagram just a few minutes later, thanking him for the opportunity to celebrate Black music legends:
Well this whole thing is…interesting. Hit the flip for more photos of Rih Rih at the Awards:
