Chris Brown

Fan Returns $22,000 Rolex At MTV Awards

Chris Brown thought his $22,000 diamond encrusted Rolex was LOST FOREVER when he accidentally tossed it into the crowd at the MTV VMAs ... but lucky for him, he thought wrong.

TMZ has learned ... Brown's watch -- a gold Rolex with a white oyster face and diamond-encrusted bezel -- came loose at the beginning of his performance ... so he took it off and tried to toss it to a safe place ... all while dancing his face off.

But Brown missed his target and the watch ended up in the crowd.

After the performance, Brown's bodyguard went into the audience and asked if anyone had found the watch -- not really expecting anyone to come forward ... but to his surprise, the watch was in the possession of an HONEST person, who returned it to its rightful owner.

A rep for Brown tells TMZ, "Although Chris did not get to meet the fan, he is very appreciative of the fan's actions."

Still, we gotta ask ...

What makes them think it was a "fan?" More likely someone who didn't want to have any part of anything associated with him.

Normally I would, but if it belonged to chris brown, I would sell it and donate the money to an abused women's shelter. Karma is a bitch.

It's kind of funny how people are slowly starting to forgive this douche bag just because he can dance. We get it. He's an amazing dancer. He's also a top notch woman beater that can't control his temper. Why idiots are putting this piece of sh*t on TV is beyond me.

What an idiot. And what terrible aim. I hope he at least coughed up a few bucks in appreciation.
