No, that was a lie from Fernando. He back pedaled and said he was joking when Lars said not only did he sign off on it, Better was his favorite song on the album. No one knows why it was pulled that I know
Do we know if it was necessarily a lie? Lars said in an interview “I signed off on ONE of the clips.” Maybe he really did was his drunk part at the end taken out. Not saying that’s why we never saw it, but I bet it was a complication. But it didn’t matter because it wasn’t set for release anyways.
It’s if you want to believe Fernando or not. He said it wasn’t released because Lars wouldn’t sign off on it. Someone asked Lars and he said it was bullshit. Fernando then said he was just joking. Best Buy requests a video be made as part of any deal with an exclusive release, mainly to play in their stores.
I don’t believe Fernando.

I believe that the rumour about Fernando being the source of some of the leaks started from that interview he did with a Brazilian fan site in 2001, where he said that he was letting his friends listen to the songs:
Fernando: I've listened to the new record, and I can say that all the songs are beautiful, not even one track is filler. The record may have 16 or 17 songs and they're all very strong. I don't say this because I work for him, or because I'm his friend. My friends, for example, whenever they listen to any of the songs, they always say it’s very good. "Catcher in the Rye," "That's Called the Blues," "Chinese Democracy," they are all very beautiful.

I haven't come across any further hints that support this rumour either in the 105-page pdf or elsewhere though.
I've also seen speculation that the leaks of later demos with Bumblefoot (Silkworms, OMG, Going Down) were sourced from Fernando's friends who he shared the files with, but I don't know about any evidence for that either.
This went went wayyyyy back to the first leaks in that hoarders had them for a while. Some of the big hoarders were from Brazil and when negotiations were being made it was said Fernando was the source. The *rumor* was that he was selling them, which I don’t believe
