Eminem confirms Bruno prank was a planned stunt

Eminem has confirmed his MTV Movie Awards encounter with funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen was all part of an elaborate stunt.

The rapper stormed out of the ceremony on Sunday night after a butt-naked Cohen – portraying his hilarious Austrian fashion expert character Bruno – literally landed in his lap.

At one point, an apparently furious Eminem raged, “Are you f**king serious” while peering over the Brit’s bare backside, prompting many to think the stunt was a prank on the rapper.

But, speaking out for the first time since the incident, the star tells, “Sacha called me when we were in Europe and he had an idea to do something outrageous at the Movie Awards. I’m a big fan of his work so I agreed to get involved with the gag.

“I’m thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it. It had so many people going nuts so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it.”
