Flo Rida Denies Pulling Brown Song Over Rihanna Controversy

Rapper FLO RIDA has dashed rumours he scrapped a collaboration with scandal-hit CHRIS BROWN from his forthcoming album because of the singer's alleged attack on RIHANNA.
The hip-hop star admits he did pull the track, called Sweat, from new album R.O.O.T.S. - but insists the decision was not based on the controversy surrounding Brown, who has been charged with making criminal threats following an alleged bust-up with Rihanna on 8 February (09).
Flo Rida tells Us Weekly, "I think someone must have got it twisted. The thing was, we have deadlines to meet and between his business and my business, things were - we had to turn an album, so I had to really get everything together."
And the Low hitmaker adds that Brown's track wasn't the only song axed: "It's not just that record, there were other records that couldn't make the album that I wanted to make the album as well, but that was the process - this was way before me ever hearing anything about (Brown allegedly attacking Rihanna). This was way before, at least a month. I had been done with this record."
And despite having cut the tune, Flo Rida maintains he was impressed by Brown's work: "He's a talented artist, so I looked forward to working with him. And I thought it was a hot song."
