Chris Brown is hoping President Obama will come to his aid after the Philippine government barred him from leaving the country. Brown performed in Manila Tuesday night, but while preparing for a Wednesday morning flight to Hong Kong, officials informed him that he couldn’t leave.

According to local press, Brown canceled a New Year’s Eve performance last year because he “lost his passport.” The conservative religious group scheduled to host his performance claim Brown owes them money and demanded the Justice Department to keep the singer from leaving until the debt is settled. Why a religious group hired Chris Brown for a New Year’s Eve concert seems to be the biggest mystery.

Regardless, this is all news to the troubled singer who played clueless on social media moments ago:

“Can somebody please tell me what the f*ck is going on? I don’t know. I’m reading headlines after headlines. What the f*ck?” Brown shouts in an Instagram video just posted.

In the caption for the vid, the singer seems to be asking President Obama for help, writing, “Obama!!!!” Something tells us he may be waiting a long time before getting a response from Barry.

Obama!!!!!!!

Chris Brown has been cleared to leave the Philippines and is on his way to Hong Kong.

Reports: Chante Moore Accused Of Financing New Album With Stolen Money

Looks like Chante Moore has got some explaining to do!

The “Chante’s Got A Man” singer is being looped in a messy fraud and racketeering case that essentially led to two men claiming they were defrauded out of $3.6 million.

According to reports, the former “R&B Divas: LA” star knowingly accepted money that was fraudulently obtained by a criminal enterprise and using it to produce her latest album and artificially inflate her sales.

The two men are have filed a lawsuit and claim the defendants used some of their money to buy Moore plane tickets for her musical tour, lavish her with gifts, fund the production of and marketing campaign for her seventh album, “The Rise of the Phoenix,” and even to “pay off her significant personal debt.”

They also claim their money was used to open a hair bar in Georgia, and buy a house.

The plaintiffs say Moore knew the money was obtained illegally and the investments made into her career “were designed in whole or in part to conceal or disguise the nature, the location, the source, the ownership, and the control of the proceeds” of the alleged illegal activity.

It gets even messier though. The two men also claim the money was used to “artificially enhance” her album sales through iTunes purchases. Since they believe their money was used to “directly used to finance the launching of Moore’s latest resurgence effort with her new album, including all advertising and marketing efforts put forth therewith,” they believe they are entitled to any profits from the record.

If you’re wondering what Moore has to say about the situation, she is denying the allegations and wants the case thrown out.

Back in July we caught up with Moore who gushed about her new album and not feeling pressure to stay relevant in the changing music climate.
