R&B star Chris Brown, best known now for assaulting fellow artist and girlfriend at the time Rihanna, has been denied a visa that he needs to enter Britain because of the criminal record he incurred as a result.
In February of 2009, Chris Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault related to a domestic violence incident involving his then-girlfriend Rihanna. He was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community labor.
But alas, Chris Brown’s merits weren’t up to the UK standards after he attacked singer Rihanna.
“SORRY to all the fans in Europe!!! my tour is cancelled,” Chris Tweeted, which was later deleted. “Im pretty sure yall know. my entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!”
Chris was scheduled to perform in Glasgow, London and Manchester as well as the Irish city of Cork.
In an official statement, his publicist said: “Due to issues surrounding his work visa, the Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown’s Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed.
“Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them for their continued support.”
