Chris Brown was excited about a tribute he’s been practicing for his idol Michael Jackson. The tribute had the green light to be debuted on the award show as a tribute to the icon. As the 40th anniversary of Thriller is upon us it would’ve been an iconic performance. But we won’t get the chance now. As the tribute was removed from the show’s lineup without warning or reason. Leaving fans only to speculate the reason for the sudden omission.
Undoubtedly, viewers were quick to speculate about why the controversial rapper was cut. “They canceled Chris Brown’s performance cause Karrueche Tran has a restraining order against him & she’s presenting,” one Twitter user claimed in all-caps. Nonetheless, it’s true that in 2017, TMZ reported that a domestic violence restraining order had been filed against Brown by his ex-girlfriend, Tran. Subsequently, in her court statement, she alleged that Brown had made threats against her life.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Dick Clark Productions has told Yahoo Entertainment: “Live shows change all the time, it’s the nature of this business; unfortunately, this element of the AMAs didn’t come together as we couldn’t align on the performance, to no fault of Chris Brown.”)
Ciara Solidifies Chris Brown Regardless
Moreover, it’s recently been noted that both Ciara and Chris Brown were rehearsing to perform together and here are people’s responses on Twitter. Clearly folks are not pleased whatsoever that both Ciara and Chris Brown’s performance was cancelled. Obviously both performers are A-1. Not to mention that both their idols are brother and sister.
