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