Passport trouble? Nope, that’s not it. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why Chris Brown bailed on his New Year’s Eve concert — and what it has to do with his on-again girl, Karrueche Tran.
Chris Brown, 25, had a much different reason for ditching his fans in Manila, Philippines on Dec. 31, 2014. Find out exactly why the R&B singer bailed on his show, and how it involves his girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, 26.
Chris Brown’s Real Reason For Canceling Philippines Show
Just hours before he was set to take the stage, Chris tweeted that he would be missing his New Year’s Eve performance on Dec. 31 due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Now, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal the real reason behind Chris’ last minute decision not to perform: Karrueche.
“No disrespect to his fans out there, but once he and Karrueche got back together over Christmas, Chris knew he wasn’t going to be able to make that venue,” a source close to the singer explained to us.
Even though Karrueche wanted Chris to go and fulfill his obligation, our source says he “flat-out” didn’t want to.
He then told her, “Some things mean more to me than money and my career and that’s you. I want to bring in my New Year with you and that’s what the f–k I’m going to do.”
You might remember that after a nasty break up that involved them taking shots at each other on Instagram, the holiday spirit brought Chris and Karrueche back together on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24 in Los Angeles!
Chris Wanted To Bring In A New, Fresh Year After 2014
It’s no secret that Chris’ 2014 wasn’t all that exciting. In fact, he spent a vast majority of the year in jail and making court appearances.
Thankfully, he can finally put the year behind him and focus on a brand-new future with Karrueche by his side.
“He had more downs that he could count last year and he wanted to bring in the New Year right, with Karrueche, who had held him down for the longest,” our source said.
Well, even though his Philippines fans were bummed about Chris not making the show, at least he got to spend the time with Karrueche so they can work on their relationship.
