Chris Brown was denied entrance into Canada on Tuesday afternoon, just hours before he was supposed to hit the stage and perform for some excited fans.
The singer confirmed the news via Twitter that he was banned from the country despite selling out Tuesday’s show at the Bell Centre in Montreal and Wednesday night’s show at the Air Canada Centre in 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 25-year-old pop star wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.
And while Chris seemed to handle the situation calmly, his tour mate Trey Songz was a tad more fired up.
“Frustration. In Montreal with nothing to do. Bullsh*t…”
According to Stephane Malepart of Canada Border Services, involvement in criminal activity is one of several factors that determine admissibility.
In recent years, Brown , who is still on probation from the 2009 assault of then girlfriend, Rihanna, has had a string of legal woes. The singer served three months behind bars last year after getting into an altercation outside a Washington D.C hotel, which was in violation of his probation.
A promoter for Live Nation said in a statement that the shows were cancelled because of “immigration issues” and that refunds are available at the point of purchase. Brown will be in Rosemont, Illinois, this Friday to continue with he and Trey’s Between the Sheets tour.
