|A GulfStream G-IV (N277GM) jet carrying a famous pop star was denied clearance to leave Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) yesterday after its passenger was held in Manila for Estafa charges.|
Its famous passenger, American pop singer Mr. Christopher Maurice Brown a.k.a. Chris Brown and his promoter John Michael Pio Roda were barred from leaving the country as they were placed under the immigration lookout bulletin, following the former’s solo concert at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on Tuesday night.
A lookout bulletin was issued against Brown in relation to a criminal complaint filed by Maligaya Development Corp. (MDC) over his failure to fulfill earlier commitment to perform at the Philippine Arena for the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC's) New Year countdown celebration on Dec. 31, 2014 after having fully paid for their services.
Brown’s plane was set to leave at 1 p.m. yesterday from a private hangar near Terminal 4 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for a concert in Hong Kong.
The chartered jet is owned by Whirlpool Corporation of the United States.
