Chris Brown Blocked From Entering Canada, Tour Dates Canceled
(AllHipHop News) Was Chris Brown prevented from entering Canada? According to the Virginia native, the answer is yes. Brown posted two tweets last night (February 24) stating the Canadian government barred him from entering the country. The singer's representative confirmed his Montreal and Toronto shows have been canceled.
The AP reports:
Nicole Perna, a spokeswoman for Brown, confirmed Canadian immigration officials denied him entry. Perna said Brown can apply to return at a later date and plans to do so. Live Nation, the promoter, said in a statement that "due to immigration issues" the shows have been canceled and refunds are available at the point of purchase.
Canada Border Services refused to comment on Brown's situation, but a spokesperson did acknowledge an individual's criminal past can be a factor in determining if a person is allowed entry into the country.
CB has faced several run ins with the law including assaulting then girlfriend Rihanna and an alleged attack against a man in Washington, DC. Brown's current tour with Trey Songz was also postponed due to Chris not completing his community service hours.
