Chris Brown Denied Entry Into Japan Following Recent Baylee Curran Gun Case
Chris Brown will not be allowed into Japan following a recent gun case. His arrest has barred him from entering the country, and the R&B singer was denied a working visa in order to performing this upcoming Monday and Tuesday at the Tokyo International Forum.
According to TMZ, sources informed them the visa was denied by officials due to reports that Brown had pulled a gun on a woman. A Japanese consulate official told the gossip site that their country has a low tolerance policy in regards to admitting visitors who possess criminal backgrounds and currently have open cases. Brown also ran into trouble getting into Australia because of probation stemming from the Rihanna case in 2009.
Another source reported that Brown will be reapplying for entry into Japan before his dates at the Forum. Brown’s legal team asserts that there is no real case against him, and that being denied the visa is causing unnecessary suffering.
Last month (Aug. 30) Brown was arrested by members of the Los Angeles Police Department after allegedly pulling a gun on Baylee Curran, a Miss California Regional 2016 title holder. He was arrested following a 10 hour standoff with police officers.
Curran and a friend had been visiting Brown at his home in San Francisco Valley and the singer reportedly became angry after she admired a piece of jewelry, asking her to leave and threatening her with a gun.
Police officers arrived on the scene around 3 a.m. after Curran made a 911 call describing the incident. They were unable to enter the singer’s home at that time because they didn’t have a search warrant. Brown has repeatedly denied all charges against him, and can be seen ranting about the arrest in an Instagram video below.
