Chris Brown was denied entry into the United Kingdom, causing the postponement of his tour, according to The Associated Press.

The 21-year-old singer, who received five years' probation for the February 2009 felony assault of then girlfriend Rihanna, was not allowed in the country by the government's Home Office, which refused his application for a visa because of his criminal record. He was scheduled to perform in several cities, including London and Manchester.

A website for the concert promoter, SJM, said the tour had been postponed "due to unforeseen circumstances."
