American hip-hop star Chris Brown, barred from leaving the Philippines over a row with a powerful religious sect, insisted in a foul-mouthed rant on Thursday that he did nothing wrong.
The 26-year-old's private jet remains grounded at Manila airport two days after he performed at a concert in the capital, amid a fraud complaint filed against him by the indigenous Christian group Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ).
"Can somebody please tell me what the f*** is going on? I don't know. I'm reading headline after headline," the pierced and tattooed singer said in a video post on his official Instagram account that later appeared to have been taken down.
Brown, whose profanity-laden catalogue includes songs like 'Wet the Bed' and 'Body Shots', has 12 million followers on the popular photo-sharing service.
The video appeared to have been taken in a hotel room, with soda cans and snacks scattered on tables. His companions were sprawled on couches, wrapped in white blankets. In a second video post, Brown raised both hands in the air and said: "I didn't do nothing".
The Grammy award-winning singer then break-danced in front of a giant flat screen television that was showing computer games. Brown was smiling and appeared playful in both videos, posted in the early hours of Thursday.
Press reports said he was holed up in a Manila hotel two days after his Tuesday concert.
Calls and emails to the Iglesia ni Cristo and to Brown's spokeswoman and concert promoters on Thursday seeking comment were unanswered. - AFP
