During his spectacular dance number at the 2011 VMA Awards, Chris Brown spun, swung and danced his way across both the stage and the arena. But what he didn’t expect was to lose his beloved Rolex watch.
It was one of the most talked-about performances of the evening–Chris Brown’s performance of Beautiful People/Yeah 3X/Protect Ya Neck/Teen Spirit. But it wasn’t only the performance that was on Chris’ mind that evening. It was the loss of his beloved diamond-encrusted $22,000 Rolex watch that had his head spinning as well.
A young fan named Alisha Borton caught the watch and placed it on her wrist for safekeeping. After the awards show was over, Alisha located Chris’ bodyguard and returned the Rolex to him, after she noticed him looking for it.
At the time, a representative for Brown stated, “Although Chris did not get to meet the fan, he is very appreciative of the fan’s actions. Chris’ bodyguard didn’t get the name of the girl who found the watch, but they’re hoping she’ll contact them so he can personally thank her and reward her with tickets and backstage passes to his upcoming appearances.”
Although hesitant to come forward at first, Alisha identified herself to Brown after the singer/dancer appealed to fans for the person who found his watch to get in touch with him.
It was later reported that Chris promised Borton that she would not only get tickets to an upcoming Brown show, she would also be hooked up with backstage passes and a private meet-and-greet with the star.
Chris posted on Twitter after finding out the most honest person at the VMA’s name, “S/O to Alisha Borton for returning my watch at the VMAs!! I want to invite you to my show in Cincinnati! Can’t wait to meet you!!”
See, honesty is always the best way to go, even when you’re holding a watch that’s worth more than most people make in a year!
