Chris Brown canceled his New Year’s Eve concert in the Philippines just hours before he was scheduled to perform because he reportedly lost his passport. Brown took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that he was unable to make it to the Philippine Arena for the holiday show. “#TeamBreezyManila! Due to unfortunate circumstances I can’t bring in the new year with you,” he wrote. “Too bad since the Philippines Arena is one of the best arenas in the world! Stay tuned Team Breezy!!!!”

On Wednesday, Brown’s local representatives told the Maligaya Development Corp., the organizers of the event, that he was still in Los Angeles. The planners said in a statement, “According to them, Chris Brown lost his passport the day before the scheduled event. Hence despite having entered into a contract with us, Chris Brown would not be able to comply with his obligation to perform.” There’s no word yet whether Brown will make it up to the organizers.

Brown was slated to perform in the 55,000-seat arena along with other artists as a part of the New Year’s Eve concert, which also featured a fireworks show. What do you think of Brown being forced to cancel his performance?
