It seems as though Chris Brown can't escape his past!
The Huffington Post reported earlier today that Brown cancelled a concert in Guyana after politicians and feminist groups protested his performing there because of his conviction for beating up then-girlfriend, super-star Rihanna. The conviction followed a brawl inside a rented Lamborghini on a Hollywood street on February 8, 2009. Photos of Rihanna's bruised and battered face were circulated throughout the media and fans all over the world were outraged and upset.
Although the concert's promoter, Hits & Jams Entertainment, confirmed Brown's withdrawal of the scheduled December 26 concert due to the protesters, Brown's rep told E! Online otherwise: "This concert was never confirmed. The promoter is being untruthful."
Whatever the case, its obvious Brown hasn't been completely forgiven for his less-than-perfect past. In Sweden last month, protestors displayed professional-looking 'Chris Brown' concert posters that showed Rihanna's bruised face along with dates of Brown's upcoming concerts. The posters were meant to deter Swedish fans from attending and supporting the Turn Up the Music singer, reports Ace Showbiz/a>.
In England last September, another unknown group added stickers to the rapper's Fortune CD that read, "WARNING: Do Not Buy This Album! This Man Beats Women."
Despite protests from all over the world, Brown is set to release his newest album, Carpe Diem, in early 2013.
