Chris Brown turned away at the US-Canada border ahead of shows in Montreal and Toronto
Karma is a tough cookie to chew. Chris Brown abruptly cancelled two Canadian shows of the “Between The Sheets” tour after being denied entry into Canada. The “Ayo” rapper announced the news on social media in two tweets that have since been deleted:
“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!”
Fans will surely be disappointed as both shows are reported to have been sold out.
“Unfortunately I will not be able to perform in front of sold out crowds in Montreal & Toronto”
The promoter Live Nation said in a statement the shows have been cancelled “due to immigration issues”. No doubt it was due to Chris Brown’s violation of probation last year in which he served three months jail time. Brown was on probation after attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
His tour buddy Trey Songz expressed his annoyance of the news on Twitter:
Frustration. In Montreal with nothing to do. Bullshit…

This isn’t the first bump the “Between The Sheets” tour has had to overcome. It was delayed when a judge revoked Brown’s probation after failing to complete his 1000 hours of community service on time. The 25-year-old was also denied entry into the UK in 2010, forcing him to miss out on four shows.
Brown often speaks out about the negative press he has received since the beating of Rihanna:
Nothing can stop what God has planned. Surround yourself with elevators! It’s almost over… Keeping pushing forward and don’t break!
