Chris Brown Banned from Entering Canada Hours Before His Show
Sorry, Canadian fans! Chris Brown will not be performing north of the border anytime soon. The singer announced via Twitter on Tuesday that the Canadian government denied him entry just before his shows in Montreal and Toronto.
“The good people of the Canadian government wouldn’t allow me entry. I’ll be back this summer and will hopefully see all my Canadian fans!” the Fan of a Fan artist Tweeted on Tuesday.
The singer’s ban was due to “immigration issues,” tour promoter Live Nation said in a statement.
Brown also mentioned in his Tweets – they have since been deleted – that both of the performances were sold out.
The singer has had several brushes with the law over the years. In January, a Los Angeles judge revoked Brown’s probation in the 2009 domestic violence case involving his then-girlfriend Rihanna after learning the singer had traveled without consent.
The performances in Canada were part of the R&B singer’s Between the Sheets tour, which will head to Rosemont, Illinois, on Friday.
