Chris Brown postpones tour due to latest legal troubles

Chris Brown has postponed his upcoming tour after his probation was revoked by a judge earlier this month (Jan15).

The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was slated to kick off his Between The Sheets shows with Trey Songz on Wednesday (28Jan15), but Brown has now announced that fans will have to wait a little longer to see him in concert.


The embattled R&B star took to Instagram.com to write, "I would first like to apologise to all the fans and people who have been supporters of me and all the music over the years. The beginning of the BTS tour has been moved to later dates now.


"The judge would not sign off on my travel to do the tour until I finish these last 100 hours of community service. I promise that I am busting my a** doing it everyday until it's complete... This is the most disappointing news I've gotten in a while... Out of 1000 hours I only have 100 left. I will work my a** off to complete it and I will be on that stage.


"Once again I'm sorry for the delay. I love y'all! We will let y'all know the dates that are changed. It's not cancelled."


The singer's probation stemming from his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna was revoked after it was determined that he recently broke court orders by leaving Los Angeles County to play a gig in San Jose, California.


Officials also cited Brown's failure to complete his court-ordered community service before the recommended deadline for the decision.


Brown, who spent time in jail last year (14), could end up back behind bars if he is found to have wilfully violated the terms of his probation.


The Behind The Sheets tour was initially scheduled to kick off in his home state of Virginia, with the tour continuing through until March (15).
