It was prior commitments, not a rejected visa, which kept him from the Michael Jackson tribute concert.
Tea with the Queen could still be in the cards for Chris Brown. Contrary to rumors, the R&B singer had not been denied a visa to the UK because of his legal troubles in the United States.
That's the story that was going around when Breezy was a no-show at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Cardiff, Wales, on Saturday. But the truth, Brown's people tell TMZ, is that "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." They added, "He was not banned."
Banned or not, Brown should be glad he managed to avoid an awkward run-in across the pond with his ex Rihanna and her English muffin.
