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."

He must have a real professional manager...not! When you have a criminal record, wouldn't you check to see if you can travel outside the US? Would be nice if the US wouldn't let him back in...lol.

It's a shame old RiRi is still running free. She started the fight, not Chris!

To those of you saying that he should get a new chance, and that the UK are too strict, I would just like to say that entering into the US is VERY difficult if you have something similar on your record. The US will send you back where you came from if they find reason to. I think it´s good that the UK have put their foot down against letting criminal celebrities into the coutry. They locked old "Snoop" out for quite some time due to his criminal record. I am glad that these celebrities can´t buy their way out of the crimes they have committed.

Red RiRi Sucks    

Wow!!! That's a Major Power Source to be black ballin him like that. I wonder how many favors and strings had to be pulled to get CB denied. Princess RIRI should get the same treament because her behavior is not that of a victim. If she really suffered trauma then why is SHE on tour? Let life move on and let him in UK!!!

This is strange. The Uk lets Muslims in and they make a practice of beating their women. Go Figure.

“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.”

Ha ha! Finally a country that has back bone to stick up for what THEY believe in. Unlike the US that bows down for every NON-citizen that steps foot into the country. We wouldn't want to "offend anyone or hurt their feelings".
