Chris Brown has been forced to cancel and reschedule his shows in Japan after he was denied a visa to enter the country.

Arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon last month (August 2016), Brown allegedly pulled a gun on model Baylee Curran at his home in California.

Despite the allegations, Chris and his lawyer have both denied there's any truth to them, but the legal drama continues with his arraignment date pushed back, so officials can continue to gather evidence.

Scheduled to play on September 26 and 27 at the Tokyo International Forum, those dates have had to be postponed.

A statement from promoter Creativeman Productions reads: "We are very sorry to announce that we have to postpone Chris Brown's upcoming Japan tour at Tokyo International Forum Hall A on 26 and 27 September due to a logistical visa issue.

"We will announce details of rescheduled dates (soon)."

TMZ learned from a source that the Japanese consulate have a low tolerance for approving visitors who have open cases and a criminal record.

This isn't the first time Chris has had a visa denied, with the singer also denied entry into Australia at the end of last year due to his assault conviction, which he gained after beating up former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos has told Twitter followers that he's confident police officials will be dropping the case soon.

Other law enforcement sources however have allegedly told TMZ that investigators have been given an extra two weeks to complete witness interviews and gather evidence.
