Hey Chris Brown, the Philippines want you to know not to MESS WITH THEM.
The singer couldn’t get into Canada earlier this year and now he can’t get OUT of the Philippines, all because he allegedly skipped out on a gig there.
On Tuesday night, Brown played a show in the country but when he tried to leave Wednesday morning for his next show in Hong Kong, the Philippine Department of Justice was like, NO DICE, sir. Why? Because Brown was allegedly supposed to play a show last New Year’s Eve, but never showed. The promoters of that gig were granted an order to bar Brown from leaving the country in order to get him to pay back money they say they are owed.
And this kind of border patrol stress isn’t new for Brown: back in Feb, he had to cancel a show in Canada because he was denied entry into the country due to his criminal background. It’s like Canada…but reversed. Chris? Don’t skip out on foreign shows, mmmmkay? He’s still working out the deets of how he’s gonna leave and we’ll keep ya posted.
In conclusion, The Philippines and elephants have one thing in common: THEY NEVER FORGET.
