Although it’s unclear exactly what went down, Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend seemed noticeably annoyed and could be heard yelling at Hill, “But why?” before she chucked the money at his face.
“Did Rihanna just flip out on homeboy?” one viewer tweeted, while another observed: “This guy definitely just lost his job @rihanna @bet
However, it seems that the meltdown was simply a stunt for her “BBHMM” music video. After exiting the stage, Rihanna posed with Hill, who captioned an Instagram: “We kissed and made up. #BETAwards What a night!!”
After the show, BET confirmed to Billboard that it was indeed a staged moment.
Regardless, RiRi’s dedicated fans thoroughly enjoyed the moment.
