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!”
Canada did not give a reason for denying entry to Chris Brown.
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.

Beyoncé’s hair got caught in a fan during her performance in Montreal on Monday night.
Beyoncé, 31, didn’t even bat an eyelid when her mane of curls became tangled in a giant fan in the middle of her rendition of Halo.
In a video posted onto her Instagram page, Beyoncé was taken by surprise when she got a little too close to the device, leaving her locks suddenly trapped in the blades.
Although a look of shock momentarily registered on her face, Beyoncé continued her flawless performance regardless, while her aides rushed to her side in a desperate attempt to free her.
Looking utterly flabbergasted and at a loss of what to do, the baffled security guards crowded around the singer, before one of them eventually managed to cut her loose.
Luckily, Beyoncé managed to see the funny side of the incident, and later posted a handwritten note on her Instagram page, hilariously re-writing the lyrics to Halo to fit in with the fan calamity.

The singer wrote: “Gravity can’t begin, to pull me out of the fan again/ I felt my hair was yankin/ From the fan that’s always hatin.”
A source later revealed to Usmagazine.com that the incident occurred because Beyoncé had made her way off the stage to greet a young fan in the front row.
The source said: “There was a girl in the front who was holding up a sign with a bucket list on it of all the things she wanted to do with her life. It was things like <<graduate from college>> and all the boxes were checked except the last one, which was <<Sing With Beyonce!>>.
“Beyoncé was so moved she went down into the pit to sing Halo with the girl to give her final wish. She wasn’t even thinking of the fan – she was focused on the girl she was trying to do something nice for and it was unprompted. It really came from a good place.”
Beyoncé is in the middle of the North American leg of her Mrs. Carter Show world tour.
Rihanna took to the stage 70 minutes late for her Diamonds world tour in Montreal on Sunday night.
Luckily for her patient fans Rihanna proved worth waiting for, showing her figure in a pair of thigh high white boots.
The singer teamed the boots with a transparent T-shirt dress baring the legend “sea of desire” and black underwear.
The outfit proved just one of six equally outrageous outfits.
They included a pop art inspired two-piece, in clinging red and yellow PVC, and studded black leather underwear, which she wore with another pair of over-the-knee boots.

Rihanna, 25, wore her hair curled, flowing and long, with half her head shaved.Earlier her fans had been left waiting as she took her time coming on stage.
The delayed start to the gig came after Rihanna was forced to cancel two shows of her Diamonds world tour on doctor’s orders after suffering a bout of laryngitis.
The singer seemed fully recovered as she belted out her set in Canada.
One of the more tender moments came as Rihanna dedicated the song Diamonds to her late grandmother Dolly, whose birthday it was.
