Award-winning pop singer Chris Brown was held up by airport staff from leaving the Philippines after being accused of fraud, which in turn may affect his concert in Hongkong.
Brown’s flight was delayed on Wednesday after a contract dispute arose regarding his canceled concert last year on New Year’s eve. The said event was supposed to be held at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan. The singer cancelled the show only one day ahead for the reason that he lost his passport. INC’s chief legal counsel has filed estafa charges against Chris Brown with the help of the Department of Justice.
The singer then reacted on this matter by taking it to the internet.
“Don’t believe everything you read. It’s a misunderstanding between Phil Casey and the promoters. Hopefully this will be resolved shortly,” he wrote on Twitter.
He also ranted on a video he posted on Instagram.
“Can somebody please tell me what the f*** is going on? Cause I don’t know, I’m reading headlines after headlines. What the f***?”
Chris Brown and his Promoter John Michael Pio Roda were advised by the Bureau of Immigration and the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines to seek for a clearance certificate that would permit them to leave the country.
Some reports claimed that Brown had already “escaped the Philippines.”
It is not yet confirmed if the singer had truly left the country.
