This must be a strange feeling for Chris Brown - normally, whenever he turns up people can't wait for him to bugger off again. In the same way the Queen believes all public buildings smell of paint, Brown must assume that everyone in the world is just about to go to bed at every point in time.
But at last, someone is saying 'don't go, Chris Brown. Don't go."
Unfortunately for Brown, it's the Philippines authorities and they're pretty much holding him because of a legal dispute.
Ironically, the dispute that's keeping him in the country is as a result of a time when he didn't turn up before:
Brown’s visit to the Philippines had appeared to be going smoothly after he performed a concert Tuesday evening in front of a crowd in Manila, the capital.Brown is apparently confused by it all. That's not entirely surprising, though.
But that same night, authorities issued an order to stop any attempts by him to leave. It was put in place to compel him to pay money that promoters said was owed to them after he failed to appear for a previous appearance scheduled for last New Year’s Eve.
