Singer Chris Brown canceled two shows in Montreal and Toronto after announcing Tuesday he was denied entry into Canada.
“Unfortunately I will not be able to perform in front of sold out crowds in Montreal & Toronto,” he tweeted, hours before the Montreal show, in which he was set to perform with Trey Songz and Tyga. “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!”
Both tweets have since been deleted.
Brown did not explain why he was denied entry, and neither did his publicist, who confirmed the denial of entry to the Los Angeles Times, but reports suggest it may be related to his criminal history, which includes pleading guilty to assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and felony assault in 2013.
