Bruno's kugelsack in Eminem's face? Staged

So last week Sacha Baron Cohen (performing as gay Austrian fashionista Bruno) sat on Eminem's face. Bruno flew down from the heavens at the MTV Movie Awards wearing little more than a pair of angel wings and a 'kugelsack.' He then made a beeline for the volatile rapper, parking his sack right on his face before being hauled off by security. Eminem called Bruno a 'motherfuc*ker' and stomped out.

Well now a writer on the show has claimed that the whole thing was in fact staged and not just an extremely well timed, off the cuff gag. Scott Aukerman said: "Yes, the Bruno/Eminem incident was staged. That's all anyone wants to talk about, so let's get it out of the way. They rehearsed it at dress rehearsal and yes, it went then as far as it did on the live show."

Sources close to Slim Shady on the other hand have been less than complimentary claiming that although it was agreed that Bruno would 'swoop down' on Eminem, the part where he plopped his kugel right on his face wasn't discussed in meetings.

"Sacha had a discussion about his plans to swoop down on the high wire on to Eminem. The fact that his bare buttocks would be pressed into his face was never mentioned. When Eminem stormed out he wasn't acting. He was livid."

The kugelsack thickens.
