Brown caused a stir last year when he did not show up for the “2015 Philippine Countdown” New Year’s Eve concert at Philippine Arena in Bulacan, where he was supposed to be the main act, saying he lost his passport. Outraged fans immediately sought ticket refund.
The controversial artist, who pleaded guilty for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, is currently promoting his seventh studio album “X” and his collaboration album “Fan of a Fan: The Album.”
