    Never underestimate the global power of an assault charge on your criminal record. R&B star Chris Brown, perhaps best known now for his assault of former girlfriend Rihanna in February 2009 while the pair were enjoying Grammy festivities, was denied a visa needed to enter Britain. In response, Brown has cancelled his short tour of the region, according to Reuters.

    Brown is currently serving five years probation and was ordered to complete180 days of community service and was required to attend domestic abuse counseling as part of his rehab. His tour was scheduled to begin in Glasgow, Scotland tomorrow, with gigs in Birmingham, Manchester and London following along the route.

    Fans encouraged to hold on to their tickets with the possibility of the dates being re-arranged. The Home Office said: "We reserve the right to refuse entry to the UK to anyone guilty of a serious criminal offense. Public safety is one of our primary concerns. Each application to enter the UK is considered on its individual merits." Brown, however, has a right to appeal if he chooses.

    Should Brown appeal and be granted entry into Britain to perform? While we do not condone what he did, his dust up with RiRi old news. Has he not he repented enough?
