TMZ: Chris Brown is ETERNALLY GRATEFUL to the super honest female fan who returned his $22 THOUSAND diamond-encrusted Rolex — and he wants to show his gratitude by treating her to some pretty cool swag.
As we previously reported — Chris’ pricey timepiece got lost in a sea of screaming fans during his VMA performance. A bodyguard went looking for the watch … and shockingly, someone turned it in.
A rep for Brown tells us — Chris’ bodyguard didn’t get the name of the girl who returned the watch … but they’re hoping she’ll contact them … so Chris can personally thank her and reward her with tickets and backstage passes to his new tour.
