[VIDEO] Chris Brown Booed at the 2022 AMAs – Watch Kelly Rowland Defense
Kelly Rowland came to Chris Brown’s defense on Sunday when she presented him with the title of Favorite Male R&B Artist at the 2022 American Music Awards.
Rowland’s announcement of Brown’s win drew boos from several viewers at the Microsoft Theater, but the former Destiny’s Child singer quickly silenced them.
“Chris Brown is not here tonight, so I accept this award on his behalf,” Rowland began. Hearing the negative reactions, she replied, “Excuse me, relax,” pointing a finger at the general area of boos.
“I want to say to Chris, ‘Thank you for making great R&B music,'” Rowland said. “And I want to say to him, ‘Thank you for being an incredible performer.’ I take this award and bring it to you. I love you. Congratulations and congratulations to all nominees in this category.”
Nominees against Brown in this category were Brent Faiyaz, Giveon, Lucky Daye and The Weeknd.

Brown, of course, has been a highly controversial socialite since he was accused of assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009. The incident happened while the couple were on their way to the Grammys. Brown pleaded guilty to assault.
