Actress Gwyneth Paltrow was at the center of a controversy over the weekend, after she tweeted the title to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s song “N***as in Paris.” Paltrow had tweeted the title while she was on stage with Jay-Z and West at their Paris Watch The Throne performance. Later she defended herself, but it turns out that she might not have been the one to send the tweet at all.
According to RadarOnline, producer Terius Nash, also known as The-Dream, attended the show and claimed that he had actually sent the tweet using the Avengers star’s phone. “Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in paris for real from Gwens Phone my bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit!” The-Dream tweeted to one follower.
He continued to defend Paltrow and her post, writing, “Sure Attack her you know she's not going to do anything, you know in your heart she didn't mean it in anyway. The world is just full of...Bull s****ers who act like they give a s**t haven't did one righteous act in there lives. Its a Hot Topic because people aint got s**t.”
