Singer Chris Brown is being detained by the Philippines government after a religious sect accused him of canceling a concert without returning their deposit last year.
It is a known fact that some hip hop artists don't take their professional commitments very seriously. We often read news reports about celebrities (mainly hip hop artists) being sued for taking money upfront and reneging on their promise to perform concerts.
So it's a mystery why troubled singer Chris Brown ventured into the Philippines on Tuesday knowing he owed a religious sect money for canceling a concert there in 2014.
The influential Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), says Brown cancelled a concert on New Year's Eve last December 31.
At the time, Brown's management claimed he couldn't get a passport to leave the U.S.
Brown and his entourage are being detained at an unknown location until the matter is sorted out.
"We would appreciate any assistance you can provide to us (against) producers and talents who employ such fraudulent schemes to obtain money from legitimate businesses in the country," wrote Glicerio Santos, the sect's COO, in a letter to Philippines Justice Secretary Leila de Lima.
Brown's camp reached out to the U.S. embassy for help in getting him out of the country.
But the justice department ordered Brown to prove he didn't owe any money to the religious sect before he could obtain clearance to leave the Philippines.
The frustrated singer (who is probably off his meds again) took to social media to rant and blame others for his latest woes.
"When u tired of the fucking devil ruining your life and u hear God speak for the first time. No one knows what I deal with on a day to day," Brown wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
"The average man wouldn't hesitate to blow his fucking brains out but that's the cowards way out... Most won't understand the genius and beauty in change and learning and the people who have devilish intentions will win in the short term. My soul will always be pure of heart. What's on the surface always looks like one big party but inside there is a little boy looking for help and guidance. People say "be a man". Yeah, that's right but it doesn't take away any pain you really go through. I just wanna stay out the way and do music. Most importantly and great father. I don't have any more patience for anything that will cause me to self destruct!!"
Brown's Tarazana, CA. mansion was recently burglarized by 3 masked gunmen while his aunt was home alone.
