Grammy award-winning singer Chris Brown is finally on his way out of the Philippines after a three-day delay due to a fraud complaint against him for a canceled concert last New Year’s Eve.

Brown was able to obtain late Friday a certificate that allows him to leave the country, said Elaine Tan, spokeswoman of the Immigration Bureau.

The 26-year-old R&B artist has been stuck in Manila for a third day after running afoul of a corporation, run by an influential religious group’s members, that filed a fraud complaint against him for a canceled New Year’s Eve gig. He performed Tuesday at a packed concert in Manila.

Journalists saw Brown and around 10 others boarding his private plane parked at an airport hangar, with one taking a selfie before going into the plane.

Tan said Brown obtained the departure clearance at the bureau’s extension office and not at the main office in downtown Manila where dozens of journalists were staking out.

She said the clearance was given after “verifying that Chris Brown has no other derogatory record apart from the (immigration lookout bulletin)” that was issued Wednesday.

No derogatory record…in the Philippines.

Earlier Friday, Brown tweeted: “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,” he added.

He said he returned to Manila to do a show to make up for the canceled concert. The initial performance was to be at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena, operated by a corporation owned by the politically influential Iglesia ni Cristo religious group.

In its complaint, the Maligaya Development Corp. alleged Brown and promoter John Michael Pio Roda canceled after being paid in full for a $1 million contract.

Chris Brown is guilty of a lot of criminal and morally reprehensible behavior, but it appears that is a really innocent of wrongdoing this time…
