Uh-oh, looks like Chris Brown is in trouble again. The 26-year-old artist, who performed at a packed concert Tuesday night in Manila, was apparently barred from leaving on a private plane due to a pending clearance by the country's Bureau of Immigration.

Apparently Chris owes a local promoter $1 million (approx. RM83,785) after he was a no-show at a supposed New Year's Eve concert in Manila back in 2014. And now the promoter has convinced the Philippine government to hold his departure until he pays them.

Chris, on the other hand, took to Instagram to ask for help, specifically from President Barack Obama. In one one his posts, which has since been deleted, Chris was photographed pleading on his knees. The photo was captioned "OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Let's hope Obama sends some help soon. Or, better yet, just pay the promoter back, Chris.
