Despite his successful concert in Manila last July 21, R&B singer Chris Brown is begging Philippine authorities to let him fly out after being prohibited to leave the country due to fraud complaints by a powerful religious group.
In a video uploaded on his Instagram account (which is now deleted) the 26- year-old was seen kneeling and begging “Please, please, let us leave, please,” followed by a back flip.
USA Today noted that “The clip’s caption seemed to be a mock appeal to President Obama” with the post originally captioned “OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!”.
Prior to post, Breezy took a breather after being stranded for two days with a “profanity laced” clip which was also later removed.
“Can somebody please tell me what the (expletive) is going on?” he exclaimed, USA Today noted.
“I don’t know, I’m reading headlines after headlines, what the (expletive)!”
According to CNN, he and his Canadian promoter John Michael Pio Roda are under a lookout bulletin since July 22. The memorandum was instructed by the Philippines’ Department of Justice and later issued by the Bureau of Immigration.
Both of them have been barred to leave the Philippines due to an estafa complaint filed by Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) which is one of the biggest and most influential religious groups in the country.
Head legal counsel of INC and COO of Maligaya Development Corp., Glicerio Santos IV, revealed that Brown and his promoter “committed a breach of contract” after cancelling his New Year’s Eve performance at the Philippine Arena.
In addition to that, the “Deuces” singer and Pio Roda refused to give back the money that has been paid, Santos added. They are required to comply with the Immigration process by obtaining an Emigration Clearance Certificate (ECC) before they can actually leave Manila.
The rapper was supposed to perform in Hongkong on Thursday night and in Jakarta on Saturday. Both of which were rescheduled, NBC news noted.
