Chris Brown is turning to President Barack Obama to help him get out of the Philippines. Brown has been stuck in the country while immigration officials investigate fraud claims brought against him for skipping a New Year’s Eve appearance last year that he was paid $1 million to attend.
The 26-year-old singer traveled to the Philippines this week for a concert Tuesday and has been barred from leaving. He posted a lighthearted video message where he begged to leave and broke into a back flip.
International travel isn’t always easy for Brown. In February, he was forced to cancel Canadian concerts after being denied entry into the country, possibly due to his past criminal record.
