Did Drake skip the BET Awards to avoid another confrontation with Chris Brown? Rumors are swirling that Drake declined to attend for exactly that reason, but Drake has a much different explanation. Is Drake trying to avoid Chris Brown at all costs?

Drake, who was nominated for 12 BET Awards apparently dropped out of his scheduled appearance at the show at the last minute, which had the rumor mill swirling that he was trying to avoid another confrontation with Chris Brown.

The duo had a violent altercation in a bar last summer after Drake reportedly said something about Chris' then-girlfriend Rihanna. While both seem to have moved on since the incident, it seems that they are not necessarily eager to be anywhere near each other, either.

When it comes to the BET Awards, however, Drake is saying that he had other reasons for skipping the show.

"Thank you to BET and to the fans for voting! I'm home finishing the album and spending time w/ family before we begin our journey Sept 17," he tweeted last night.

Sounds like a legitimate excuse.

Plus, considering that a source close to Chris said the R&B singer has "no issues" with Drake, we'd like to think these two can now peacefully co-exist and that there won't be any bad blood between them if and when they do end up at the same event together.

Do you think Drake was trying to avoid Chris at the BETs?
