Chris Brown is still being haunted by his violent past with ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.
The singer, who plead guilty to assaulting Rihanna back in 2009, is scheduled to perform in Australia in December, but activists are fighting to have the singer’s Visa denied because of the 2009 attack.
On Thursday, the Australian Minister for Women, Michaelia Cash, said that the immigration minister “will be looking at this very, very seriously.” Cash added, “I’m clearly not going to preempt a decision by the minister, however I can assure you what my strong recommendation would be.”
In an online petition, activists state that they are “speaking out against Chris Brown because his casual visit our country would have enormous symbolic significance, which will only be amplified by our silence. By turning a blind eye to his tour, we send a message to survivors of family violence that it’s not that important and that you should just get over it. “
The petition reads, “If we stand by and do nothing while he performs around the country (even if we don’t have the faintest interest in Brown’s career or pop music in general) we are implicitly sending the message that if you brutally beat a woman, in a short amount of time you will be forgiven, or even celebrated.”
Breezy has remained mum on the latest incident and calls to the pop star’s reps were not returned.
This is not the first time Chris has been denied entry to a country because of his past. You might remember back in June 2010, Breezy, who was set to perform in several cities in England, was banned from entering the U.K because of his felony charge. “We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense,” Barbara Woodward, director of the UK border agency’s international group, said. “Public safety is one of our primary concerns.”
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
