REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – After two days Grammy-winning hip-hop star Chris Brown was cleared to leave the Philippines late Friday.
Brown posted a video on his Instagram account showing him boarding a plane to his next stop on his world tour while saying “Manila it was fun! Love y’all, man”.
Brown, who performed to a packed crowd at a Manila arena on Tuesday, was barred from leaving the country after the religious group Iglesia Ni Cristo filed a fraud complaint against him.
The group said Brown owed a million-dollar-plus refund after failing to show up for a concert sponsored by them this past New Year’s Eve.
In a deleted Instagram post Brown was shown pleading to leave, and seemingly asking for help from President Barack Obama.
Philippine Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said state prosecutors will look into the complaint but Brown’s presence can be waived.
