"The good people of the Canadian government wouldn't allow me entry," the R&B singer tweeted to his followers on Tuesday.

Chris Brown was barred from crossing the border into Canada by immigration officials on Tuesday, leading Live Nation to cancel shows in Toronto and Montreal.

"The good people of the Canadian government wouldn't allow me entry. I'll be back this summer and will hopefully see all my Canadian fans!" the R&B star tweeted to his followers (the tweet appears to have since been deleted).

Brown gave no reason why he was denied entry into Canada. Live Nation cited "immigration issues" when it announced late Tuesday that the Between The Sheets Tour dates featuring Brown and Trey Songz at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Tuesday night and at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Wednesday night were canceled.

The promoter said ticket refunds will be made at the points of purchase.

In 2009, Brown was sentenced to five years' probation for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna. In September 2014, the Grammy-winning singer secured another plea deal for assaulting a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel and was sentenced to time served.
