Chris Brown - Chris Brown Banned From Entering U.k., Pulls Out Of Michael Jackson Tribute Show

Chris Brown has been forced to pull out of Saturday's (08Oct11) Michael Jackson tribute show in the U.K. after he was denied a work visa because of his criminal record.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was set to honour the late King of Pop with a performance at the star-studded Michael Forever concert in Wales, but he's now axed his plans after being barred from entering the U.K. due to his 2009 assault conviction for attacking his then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The show has been plagued with problems in recent weeks - the Black Eyed Peas dropped out of the tribute on Thursday (06Oct11) due to "unavoidable circumstances", and Gene Simmons was removed from the bill following complaints from fans regarding previous comments the Kiss rocker had made regarding Jackson's child abuse allegations.
Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Ne-Yo and Leona Lewis are still expected to perform as planned.

This is bull. Unless Chris Brown was going to be a surprize guest he wasn't one of the performances that was going to perform in the Michael Jackson Tribute Show. It was told in the very beginning that because of his schedule Chris would not be able to participate in the Tribute for Michael although he so badly would have wanted to be a part of it because he "couldn't" be a part of the funeral. So please stop making things up about these people. if he could not get a "visa" that is whatever his issue is with the UK.
