Chris Brown can finally come home.
The singer was cleared to leave the Philippines after a hold-up caused by fraud claims.
He was in Manila to perform a concert, but after a promoter filed a complaint against him for having allegedly bailed on a New Year’s Even concert, the government wouldn’t let him leave.
However, according to immigration spokeswoman Elaine Tan, Brown secured an emigration clearance certificate (ECC) stating he had no legal obligations in the country.
Brown was later seen boarding a waiting private jet at the capital’s airport, along with his 10-man entourage. “Manila, it was fun, love y’all, man,” the singer said in a video posted to his Twitter. “Party tonight!” he added.

The 26-year-old had earlier taken to social media to beg for help in getting out of the country and insist he had done nothing wrong. He even posted a video to Instagram begging President Obama for help. The video and the tweets has since been deleted.
I have nothing to do with anything going on right now. I came back to Manila to do a make up show for New Years. I did the show 3 days ago. This is a very serious situation and someone needs to be held accountable for mixing my name up in all this. I’ve done nothing wrong!!!
All is good now — Brown is even hosting a
welcome home party girl’s night out party at Club Cubic tonight (July 24, 2015).
