According to the outlet, a Reddit user posted a seven-second snippet, titled "(SNIPPET) Eminem - Things Get Worse (Rihanna Diss)," of what appears to be an unreleased version of a song that would become B.o.B.'s 2011 track "Things Get Worse." On the leaked snippet, Em reportedly raps, "Of course I side with Chris Brown, I'd beat down a b*tch too."
According to Insider, the audio appears to have been illegally obtained and neither Eminem, Rihanna, or Chris have commented on the lyric, which is making its rounds on Twitter.
The edited track — sans the Chris Brown and Rihanna line — was released months after Chris was charged with felony assault after abusing his then-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammys. He was later ordered to serve five years of probation, community service, and domestic violence counseling.
In the years since, Rihanna and Eminem have worked together numerous times, collaborating on "The Monster" in 2010, "Numb" in 2012, and "Love the Way You Lie" in 2013.
While the leaked audio did not make it on the 47-year-old rapper's 2009 album Relapse, on the version that did get released, Eminem infamously raps about murdering Dakota Fanning and putting Natasha Bedingfield "in a washer." He additionally disses Angelina Jolie, Carmen Electra, Jessica Simpson, and his mom on the track.
