Chris Brown has been forced to cancel shows in Montreal and Toronto after Canadian officials stopped him from entering the country.
The singer wrote in a tweet on February 24: “The good people of the Canadian government wouldn’t allow me entry. I’ll be back this summer and will hopefully see all my Canadian fans!”
But authorities can declare someone “criminally inadmissible.”
Chris Brown was sentenced to five years of probation for assaulting singer Rihanna before the Grammy Awards in 2009.
Since then the musician has violated the terms of his probation on several occasions.
Live Nation – the promoter of Chris Brown’s Between The Sheets tour – confirmed that the shows were cancelled “due to immigration issues”.
The singer’s spokeswoman, Nicole Perna, said Canadian immigration officials denied Chris Brown entry but said that the musician can apply to return at a later date and plans to do so.
