Despite rumors that singer [artist id="1795565"]Keshia Chante[/artist] was the young woman who sent a text message to Chris Brown the night he allegedly attacked Rihanna, her manager insists that the 20-year-old had nothing to do with the incident, which took place early Sunday morning.
"This is another unsubstantiated, untrue report; she was nowhere near the incident in any way," Mona Scott told UsMagazine.com about rumors that a text message to Brown sparked an argument between Rihanna and Brown, who was reportedly also in Los Angeles the night of this incident.
"She was nowhere near [artist id="1940303"]Rihanna[/artist] or [artist id="1961441"]Chris Brown[/artist]," the manager added. "She had nothing to do with any of that."
Scott said that Chante has been "frantic" after she began getting phone calls from people following the rumors that she was the one who had texted Brown. Although she insists that Brown and Chante barely know one another, a segment from "Entertainment Tonight Canada" finds Chante showing Brown around town. In a later interview, she sent Brown a message, to which Brown responded he would love to meet up with her again.
"She's not even dating Chris!" Scott said. "I think they met a few years back, probably three or four years ago, in Canada. But that's it. It's crazy — there's been a continuous kind of reporting of them linked together, and this has been the worst of it all. But, no — she had absolutely nothing to do with them or any of that."
Scott also denied that Chante will be playing Aaliyah in a movie adaptation of the late singer's life, although she did say it would be a "great opportunity."
