Chris Brown

Blocked from UK

Over Rihanna Incident

6/8/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Blocked From UKChris Brown
's violent past just caught up with him in the UK ... where he was just denied entry into the country.

Officials in Great Britain revealed they wouldn't let the singer cross the border because of his criminal record ... specifically the attack on Rihanna.

The move seriously screws up Brown's tour -- which had at least 3 scheduled stops in the UK.

Soon after the decision, Brown tweeted, "SORRY to all the fans in Europe!!! my tour is cancelled. Im pretty sure yall know. my entry was denied in your country. I love you. SORRY!!"

The tweet was later removed -- and his publicist later claimed the rejection was based on "issues surrounding his work visa."

Britain's Home Office also released a statement, saying, "We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense."

Maybe this is the work by the new government, stricter rules for people entering the UK! I'm sure if Labour were still in, they would have let him enter. He's dirt, so I kind of happy! Hopefully this means less immigrants coming also, I knew Conservative was the way to go. ;-)

Oh please. It's a crime, sure, but it's not a SERIOUS crime.

Good, you have to pay the piper when you are a felon. Unfortunately Van der Sloot wasn't found out soon enough.

I am so glad they did that. I wish they'd do it to the other foreign criminals they harbour as well. Chris needs to get it through his head that he's a piece of ****, and just fade into the background. Charlie Sheen needs to do the same.

@8. They should ban the other skank involved as well, it takes two to tango. Rihanna is as much blame for that incident as he is. She is just a female, and they always get the benefit of doubt, in those cases. I'm not condoning what Chris did, I just know he isn't the little angel everyone wants to think. This girl is starting to look drugged out, with all her crazy hair cuts, and clothes.

Good. No sympathy for the pathetic woman-beater here.
"Refunding like maybe 10 tickets at the most", LOL indeed. L-O-S-E-R.

15. Enough already. Yeah he did something bad but when does it end for him? I am sure he learned his lesson. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Nope good for England for sticking it too him and im glad he got all of the way over there before he was denied, awesome. Why should he get a second chance its his own fault. He has been assaulting our ears with his "music"/noise for years finally someone taking action



@19. Oh please. It's a crime, sure, but it's not a SERIOUS crime.



Ya sure not a serious crime, he only beat the **** out of a mentally challenged person.

The only difference between Chris' situation and another celeb's is press coverage. They denied him because of his criminal record? Give me break. He screwed up. We get it. He gets it. Leave him alone.

some will disagree, but i think this man has paid enough. There were two in that dispute, Chris won the dispute but lost in court, that doesn't make her any less responsible for her part. She too committed domestic violence in that situation

This guy should be in JAIL. If you or I would have done what he did we would be. Celebrity justice at its finest.

Yes, in Europe being black doesn't get you elected, acquitted, or in college for free.

If Chris Brown beat some regular chick it wouldnt even be that damn serious. Leave him alone already. He made a mistake, he was 19 years old. Cmon now, this Chris Brown **** is old and really freaking annoying. Seriously, if he didnt beat Rihanna he would be performing right now but since shes a star too, he has to get treated like a monster, when Charlie Sheen's ass been beating his wife for years and he gets special priviledges and demands 1.5 million an episode and crap. Thats B.S UK.
