Chris Brown Tour Delayed Due To Legal Troubles; Singer Blames Judge
Chris Brown postponed his Between The Sheets Tour at the last minute on Monday, one day before his concert run with Trey Songz was slated to begin. According to the singer, Brown’s legal woes will prevent him from traveling for the first batch of dates.
“The beginning of the BTS tour has been moved to later dates now. The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service. I promise that I am busting my a** doing it everyday until it’s complete,” Brown wrote on Instagram.
He went on, “Out of 1000 hours I only have 100 left. I will work my a** off to complete it and I will be on that stage.” Brown further said he wanted “to apologize to all the fans and people who have been supporters of me and all the music over the years,” and acknowledged, “This is the most disappointing news I’ve gotten in a while.” “Everything happens for a reason so I wanted to personally inform my fans. The show must go on,” he wrote.
Brown concluded, “Once again I’m sorry for the delay. I love yall! We will let yall know the dates that are changed. It’s not cancelled. Just moved around a couple weeks.” The tour was slated to start in Virginia on Tuesday, with subsequent stops in New York, Maryland, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, North Carolina, and more. For his part, Songz tweeted that the unexpected development was “Just a lil Intermission…”
As Gossip Cop reported, Brown’s probation was revoked earlier this month after it was revealed that he hadn’t yet completed his court-ordered community service and had allegedly left Los Angeles County without permission to perform in San Jose, where a shooting took place. The judge scheduled a March hearing to determine if the singer did indeed violate his probation, with jail time among the potential punishments.
With dates initially scheduled throughout the country through March, it’s not clear yet when Brown will hit the road. Gossip Cop has reached out a rep for clarification, and will have updates. What do you think of the situation?
