Chris Brown Cancels Canadian Concerts in Light of "Personal and Health Issues"

Canadians hoping to see Chris Brown perform will have to settle for watching his "Love More" music video, because he's canceled four shows there.

He was set to perform in Halifax, N.S., Saint John, N.B., Toronto, Ont., and Winnipeg, Man., as part of a summer concert series, but now he will not.

The reason? His ongoing issues ... personal, legal and/or medical.

Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, says the shows were nixed "in light of the performer's recent personal and health-related issues."

Brown recently suffered a seizure, which he has recovered from, but which his rep blamed on non-stop negativity surrounding the R&B superstar.

That claim is debatable, but the reason for that negativity? Not so.

The cancelations come after Halifax mayor Mike Savage spoke out about Brown being scheduled to sing in his city, saying "It makes me kind of sick."

He went on to say that Brown wasn't a good role model for kids and that Halifax could do better than bring in "someone who has his violent background."

The announcement that Brown would be headlining a festival in the Canadian city also cause Rogers Communications to drop out as a sponsor.

Chris was sentenced to an additional 1,000 hours of community service as part of his reinstated probation Friday, a week after suffering the seizure.

He has been on probation since 2009, and will be until 2014, after his assault on Rihanna, which she forgave him for, but the public in many cases hasn't.

This is, in part, due to his involvement in one controversy after another in the years since, including falsifying his own community service records.
