Britain to Chris Brown: No Visa For You!

by at . Comments

UK officials announced that they have barred Chris Brown from entering Great Britain for a concert due to his vicious 2009 attack on his former girlfriend.

"Team Rihanna," Britain's Home Office said in a statement. Just kidding, they didn't say that, though it was basically the same sentiment they expressed.

"We reserve the right to refuse entry to the U.K. to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offence. Public safety is one of our primary concerns," the office said.

"Each application to enter the U.K. is considered on its individual merits."

Chris Brown was apparently found to be merit-free.

"SORRY to all the fans in Europe!!! my tour is cancelled. Im pretty sure yall know. my entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!" Brown tweeted in a post subsequently deleted in favor of this official statement from his publicist:

"Due to issues surrounding his work visa, the Ireland and United Kingdom leg of Chris Brown's Keep Me Relevant Fan Appreciation Tour has been postponed."

"Chris looks forward to performing for his fans abroad in the near future and thanks them all for their continued support at this time."

Brown had been scheduled to perform in Glasgow, London and Manchester in the U.K., along with a stop in the Irish city of Cork. Not gonna happen.

The 21-year-old R&B star remains on trash detail as part of his five-year probationary sentence following his guilty plea in the Rihanna assault case.

Rihanna didn't have any visa woes for her UK tour dates this year. Just saying.
