Chris Brown Detained In Philippines Over Cancelled Concert
Pop star Chris Brown is detained in Philippines after a religious denomination accused him of canceling a concert without returning their deposit last year. The Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), says Brown cancelled a concert on New Year’s Eve last December 31.
At the time, Brown’s management claimed he couldn’t get a passport to leave the U.S. Brown and his team are being detained at an unknown location until the matter is sorted out.
“We would appreciate any assistance you can provide to us (against) producers and talents who employ such fraudulent schemes to obtain money from legitimate businesses in the country,” wrote Glicerio Santos, the church’s chief operating officer, in a letter to Philippines Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.
Brown’s rep reached out to the U.S. embassy for help in getting him out of the country. But the justice department ordered Brown to prove he didn’t owe any money to the religious denomination before he could obtain clearance to leave the Philippines.
The light-skin singer took to social media to rant and blame the devil:
“When u tired of the fucking devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day,” Brown wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
“The average man wouldn’t hesitate to blow his fucking brains out but that’s the cowards way out… Most won’t understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term. My soul will always be pure of heart. What’s on the surface always looks like one big party but inside there is a little boy looking for help and guidance. People say “be a man”. Yeah, that’s right but it doesn’t take away any pain you really go through. I just wanna stay out the way and do music. Most importantly and great father. I don’t have any more patience for anything that will cause me to self destruct!!”
