Chris Brown

Chris Brown isn’t banned from the UK, you know. The reason he didn’t play the big Michael Jackson tribute gig in Cardiff on Saturday was that he had something else on already. He’s allowed into Wales whenever he wants, he just doesn’t want to go there. So say his management anyway, who have denied claims that Brown’s non-appearance was visa related.

A rep told TMZ: “His previously booked domestic [US] FAME tour concert dates didn’t allow him to accept the honour, and therefore he never planned to go to the UK. He was not banned”.

Brown did have to cancel a UK tour last year when the Home Office denied him a visa on the grounds that he once beat Rihanna unconscious and drove away leaving her lifeless body lying on the pavement. This has nothing to do with that though.
