Man down! Rihanna has blasted claims that she ever provoked Chris Brown to violence.
The Bajan singer is denying reports that said she posted a tweet reading, "’I admit it. I provoked Chris [Brown] to hit me. [It’s] not entirely his fault. #imSORRY." Although a screen grab of the alleged tweet did have the correct ID info, profile pic, and two preceeding tweets that RiRi actually wrote, it featured the old Twitter layout.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether Rihanna actually posted that tweet or if she was just the victim of Twitter hackers. The singer, however, claims that the screengrab was a fake.
She tweeted, "@mtvnewscanada are u f*%king kiddin me?????? You’re supposed to be a RELIABLE source for news on music and this is the bulls#!t u post??"
MTV Canada immediately pulled the offending article, and addressed Rihanna fans by tweeting, "We were reporting on a story that was posted on several sites today. We had no intention to be salacious."
