Chris Brown cleared to leave Philippines after bizarre appeals.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Chris Brown left the Philippines late Friday after being stranded for three days due to a fraud complaint against him for a canceled concert last New Year’s Eve. The 26-year-old singer recently uploaded a series of videos on the social networking site, out of which some were deleted, where most of the clips were captioned, “OBAMA!!!!!,” reported People Magazine.American hip-hop artist Chris Brown has been cleared to leave the Philippines, after he was temporarily barred from exiting the country over a row with a powerful religious sect.

The 26-year-old, who was stuck in Manila for two days, secured an emigration clearance certificate (ECC) stating he had no legal obligations in the country and was free to leave, immigration spokeswoman Elaine Tan said. In a brief video posted to his official Twitter feed, an exuberant Brown could be seen walking towards a plane, apparently headed to his next gig in Macau. The stranded singer took to social media this week, insisting he had done nothing wrong and begged to be allowed to leave in a colourful string of posts. “Please, please, let us leave, please,” Brown said in one video posted on his Instagram, showing him on his knees inside what appeared to be his hotel room. I did the show three days ago.” The sect that lodged the complaint is a minority in the Philippines — where 80 per cent of its 100 million people are Catholics — but wields considerable political clout. The initial performance was to be at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena, operated by a corporation owned by the politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo religious group.

In its complaint, the Maligaya Development Corp. alleged Brown and promoter John Michael Pio Roda canceled after being paid in full for a $1 million contract. Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said Friday state prosecutors will summon Brown for a preliminary investigation into the complaint, but his presence at that stage of the criminal proceedings can be waived. Charges will be filed in court if prosecutors find probable cause to charge Brown and the promoter. “What is important at this point is for him to know that there are criminal proceedings against him at the preliminary investigation level,” De Lima told reporters.
