Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp has Ryan Braun“s back — claiming the reigning National League MVP shouldn”t be branded as a cheater … despite reports he tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.

Kemp — who finished 2nd to Braun in the MVP voting this year — was at The Grove in L.A. last night when we asked about the allegations surrounding Braun.

Kemp told us, “Nobody”s proven anything man … we don”t know anything.”

He added, “That”s a good dude. That”s my homie.”

Braun”s rep has adamantly denied the accusations — and according to reports, the Milwaukee Brewers player plans to file an appeal with Major League Baseball in an effort to avoid a 50 game suspension.
