Chris Brown banned from Japan
CHRIS Brown has been denied entry to Japan.
The 'Beautiful People' singer has been forced to propose two shows in Tokyo that were due to take place next week after being refused a working visa over an ongoing investigation relating to him allegedly threatening a woman at his house with a gun following a row over jewellery.
A Japanese consulate official told TMZ the country has a "low tolerance" for admitting visitors with criminal backgrounds and open investigations.
A statement on the ticket retailer's website confirmed the gigs had been postponed due to a "logistical visa issue" and advised fans are able to obtain refunds.
The 27-year-old singer has insisted he is innocent and maintained "the truth" about Baylee Curran's allegations against him will come out eventually.
He said recently: "I cannot wait till the truth comes to light about this incident and this situation. You know, because my character's been defaced and who I am as a person and [my] integrity.
"I'm glad all my real supporters know me, and know the truth and see the truth."
It was previously claimed his accuser had texted a friend and vowed to set the 'Yeah 3x' hitmaker up after he told her to leave his house, and Chris and his legal team have made the messages public.
One allegedly read: "This freak Chris Brown is kicking me out of his house because I called his friends jewelry fake. I'm going to set him up and call the cops and say that he tried to shoot me and that will teach him a lesson I'm going to set his ass up.(sic)"
Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, has insisted police haven't found a gun or jewellery matching the description given by Baylee when they searched the house.
He said: "There was a search that was done. They went in, and said they had a description of the piece of jewellery. Not found in the house. They went in, a gun, not found in the house."
And surveillance cameras on the singer's property are also being investigated, and Mark insists they will further prove his client is telling the truth.
He said of the footage: "There's no Chris Brown waving a gun. No Baylee looking at a box of jewellery."
