Chris Brown

I Was NOT BANNED

Chris Brown
says his criminal record played NO ROLE in why he couldn't perform at the massive Michael Jackson tribute in Wales this weekend -- claiming widespread reports that he was "banned" are simply false.

TMZ spoke with Brown's rep, who tells us Chris WAS invited to perform in the show, "however, his previously booked domestic F.A.M.E. tour concert dates didn’t allow him to accept the honor and therefore he never planned to go to the UK. He was not banned."

The rep points out that Brown spent the weekend performing in Tampa, Charlotte and Virginia Beach -- dates that had been scheduled BEFORE he was asked to join the MJ show.

Could some changes be made so he can be banned from the USA but accepted into the UK?

Yeah, right! He was BANNED, he's just too much of an "Oscar Meyer" to admit it.

That's just a crying shame, you SHOULD be banned from the planet. I think that the entire world should ban together, set up the moon as a permanent off-planet jail, with basically nothing, bare minimum. Once banished to the moon, you NEVER get to come back. I think this jackass should be going up on the first trip.

Chris, give 99% of your money away to charity and learn to live a simple life. You can only drive one car at a time.

This P.O.S should not even have been invited to play this concert...and I dont know why Ne-Yo would want to even commit to this, he is talented. I have friends over in UK who went to the concert and said it was crappy...

Chris Brown served his sentence for the crime he committed. All of you idiots who are judging him need to look in the mirror and if all of your crap was on display then you wouldn't want to be ridiculed. Some people who judge others need to look at themselves first. TMZ included.
