TORONTO (CelebrityAccess) — Chris Brown announced that he was forced to cancel planned shows in Montreal and Toronto after he was denied entry into Canada.
Brown revealed the cancellations via Twitter, saying that 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!"
Brown was slated to perform at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Tuesday and the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Wednesday.
No official reason for the entry denial was announced, but past criminal activity can be a reason for immigration officials to refuse entry.
Brown faces legal trouble over his 2009 assault on his girlfriend at the time, Rihanna. He was jailed for several months last year over violations of his probation as well. In 2010, Brown was refused entry into the United Kingdom, forcing him to cancel concerts.
Nicole Perna, a spokeswoman for Brown, confirmed to the Associated Press that Brown had been refused entry, but said that he can apply to return to the country at a later date. – Staff Writers
