(AllHipHop News) According to multiple reports, R&B singer Chris Brown has been barred from leaving The Philippines over a contract dispute. CB had just performed at a show in Manila on Tuesday evening.
Brown was preparing to fly out of Manila by private jet on Wednesday morning, but the Philippine Department of Justice stopped the U.S. citizen from departing. The order was the result of Brown failing to pay back money owed to a concert promoter for a missed show last New Year’s Eve in Bulacan.
Brown’s promoter John Michael Pio Roda was barred from leaving the Southeast Asian nation as well. Both Brown and Pio Roda reportedly could request a clearance certificate which allows them to leave the Philippines if the country’s Department of Justice consents.
Brown was scheduled to perform in Jakarta, Indonesia on July 25. He posted a message on Twitter stating the appearance will be rescheduled due to “safety concerns.”
