Ever since the Rihanna incident, it seems no matter what he does, Chris Brown will always have people who truly hate him. His career has been a rollercoaster of good and bad, and today is no different for the crooner. Rumors are swirling that Breezy bribed a key production member for the Grammys in order to win his first ever Grammy earlier this year. According to an inside source, there are alleged e-mails that show Breezy offering large sums of money in exchange for the Grammy for Best R&B album.
The executive in question is Ken Ehrlich who is responsible for putting together the Grammys telecast. Ehrlich was recently fired from his position, and the reason for his dismissal was “indiscretion and violation of the Academy’s ethics and integrity in rewarding talent.”
Neil Portnow, The President of The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences released a statement saying, “With almost ten years of being President for The Academy, I would have never predicted that this would happen. My lack of blessing for Chris’ nomination was known, but as I’ve always respected by colleagues’ insights, I mustered all I could not to fight it so much. I have worked alongside Ken for years now, and I am heavily disappointed, and will have to raise the conduct around this board. will see to it that nothing of this caliber of humiliation will happen again.”
Breezy’s rep’s are calling the story “bogus,” but the evidence is stacking against them. Let’s just hope those e- mails never see the light of day.
