R&B star Chris Brown has reportedly been denied access to Japan ahead of a series of dates in Tokyo next week. The singer is being denied entry over allegations from the LAPD he pulled a gun out at a woman.

Japan is very strict on letting people visit the country with criminal records (as Paris Hilton found out in 2010) and it now seems as though Chris Brown is the latest A-lister to be denied. Brown is used to being denied access to countries; he had to cancel his Australia and New Zealand tour in December because of his domestic violence issues in the past.

It is believed that Brown has applied for a work visa and is confident he will be granted one due to the risk of loss of income and the risk of Brown being proven innocent. Brown's legal team also believe that the allegations are being drawn out because of a lack of proof, with his lawyer Mark Geragos stating no "firearms nor the crucial piece of jewellery described in the accuser's report" were found at the scene.
