In an online video, Chris Brown is begging authorities in the Philippines to allow him to leave the country.
Chris Brown, 26, has recorded a video in which he gets down on his knees to ask the government to let him go so he can continue his world tour.
The singer has been barred from leaving the Philippines after he missed a New Year’s Eve concert in 2014.
“Please, please, let us leave, please,” said Chris Brown in an Instagram video, which was later taken down.
Chris Brown went down on his knees in what appeared to be his hotel room and ended the clip with a signature back flip.
He also appeared to send a distress signal to President Barack Obama after captioning the Instagram post: “OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!”
In two Twitter posts Chris Brown said: “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!!!
“I have nothing to do with anything going on right now. I came back to Manila to do a make-up show for New Year. I did the show three years ago.”
Chris Brown performed at an arena in Manila on July 21 and posted an Instagram video of that show.
He is due to play in Macau, China, on July 24 followed by a concert in Ayia Napa on July 28.
It now looks like Chris Brown may be leaving Manila after he posted a video on Twitter of him at an airport.
A concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, on July 25 has been rescheduled “due to safety concerns”.
Chris Brown was being held in Manila after he failed to show up on December 31, 2014, for a concert sponsored by the indigenous Christian group Iglesia ni Cristo at its 55,000-seater indoor stadium on the outskirts of the city.
He reportedly said that he had lost his passport, so he couldn’t travel.
The justice department has stopped him from leaving until he can produce a document showing he has no legal obligations in the country.
The immigration bureau has said Chris Brown hasn’t applied for such a document and the justice department has appointed a state prosecutor to prepare the filing of fraud charges against him.
Both Twitter posts were retweeted around 2,000 times minutes after the star uploaded them.
Chris Brown has more than 14 million followers and 12 million on Instagram.
He posted his rant on his Instagram on July 23 as he break-danced, apparently making fun of his situation.
But his tone was more serious on July 24, as he realized it could affect his world tour.
Chris Brown is also scheduled to perform in Israel and Beirut next week before returning to the US for more concerts, starting in Kansas City on August 12.
