LOS ANGELES - Eminem apparently has flown the coop from the MTV Movie Awards after a close encounter with Sacha Baron Cohen.
In character as flamboyant fashion reporter "Bruno," Baron Cohen flew in above Sunday's award show audience on a wire _ and in a pair of feathery white wings and his rear end mostly exposed.

But the comedian crashed into an overhead obstacle, and he was lowered into the audience _ right into Eminem's lap, his bare hindquarters in the rapper's face.

Eminem seemed visibly upset at the mishap. Or was it a joke he was in on?
The rapper stormed out with his entourage in tow _ and cameras rolling. In 2002, Sparks flew when the rapper was interviewed by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the MTV Video Music Awards.WATCH (scroll for pics if down):
