We didn’t think this situation could look much worse for BET — but now that some EXTREMELY volatile internal emails have leaked to the public, things look wayyyy worse than they already were!!
We reported earlier that openly transgender B. Scott was hired to be BET’s “Style Stage Correspondent” at the BET Awards last year, but upon arrival was subsequently asked to dress more masculine and remove his makeup. B. Scott was angry about being forced to change but obliged, and then ended up being replaced by Adrienne Bailon anyway!!
The wardrobe dramz has since turned into a full-blown lawsuit — and now BET’s REAL feelings on the matter are being leaked through internal emails gone rogue!
The emails reveal a very conniving side to the network, and paint the head honchos there in a VERY negative light.
BET’s Music Programming President Stephen Hill wrote the following about B. Scott:

This sounds like major trouble for BET!
After hiring B. Scott to be their "Style Stage Correspondent" for this year's BET Awards pre-show, the openly transgender "multimedia maven" is now suing the network for what went down behind the scenes!
The well-known internet personality started off wearing
And the small crowd of party goers goes wiiiiiillllldddddd!
R. Kelly was still feelin’ himself after his performance at the BET Awards, and he expressed it at Jamie Foxx’s house party.
You know, the one Kanye West went to?
Well, Ye wasn’t playing but Kells was up against Team Foxx and made a ridiculously awkward half-court shot for the win.
It was odd enough that we’d go as far as saying his mind was telling him no, but his body was telling him YES! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

It’s about time he had some fun!
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian were noticeably, and understandably, missing from the BET Awards this year, but that didn’t stop Ye from partying it up!
The rapper attended a shindig at Jamie Foxx’s Thousand Oaks home after the show, but he didn’t want to go!
Kim made him!
