Eminem Admits He Was In On Bruno Stunt at MTV Movie Awards

A day after MTV Movie Awards' head writer, Scott Aukerman, revealed that the Bruno stunt was staged, Eminem has admitted that he was in on it since the beginning.

"I'm thrilled that we pulled this off better than we rehearsed it," he tells 'Rap Radar. "It had so many people going nuts so to speak. Everyone was blowing me up about it."

"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. After the ceremony I went back to my hotel and laughed uncontrollably for about 3 hours. Especially after I saw it on air."

The rapper denies reports that a thief broke into his hotel room during Sunday's awards and stole $60,000 and a laptop: "The only thing was that I lost a Nike watch that we were looking for", he says. "The rest it is made up."

Meanwhile, Sacha Baron Cohen's new movie has received its first lawsuit. This time, though, it's not just over a bruised ego or reputation. A California woman states that an incident at a charity bingo tournament that was filmed for his upcoming 'Bruno' film has left her disabled.

Richelle Olson says Baron Cohen was invited to the event because his publicists said he was a 'celebrity' filming a documentary on Bingo. But he started using "vulgar and offensive language" while calling the numbers in front of a mostly elderly audience.

When she went to grab the microphone away, she says the actor "offensively touched, pushed and battered" her hoping to 'create a dramatic emotional response' for the film before the camera crew came over to help him.

When she finally got away, she found herself crying "sobbing uncontrollably" and claims the "shock to her nervous system" made her collapse "onto the thinly covered concrete slab, passing out and causing her to hit her head."

Olson says she was then hospitalized for "two brain bleeds" and, as a result of the incident, needs a wheelchair or walker to move around.
