Chris Brown concerts cancelled

Chris Brown suffered a seizure earlier this month

The promoter of four Chris Brown concerts in Canada scheduled this summer says the events have been cancelled.

Stephen Tobin, owner of Drop Entertainment Group, said that the decision was made after consulting with Brown and in light of his recent personal and health-related issues.

The R&B star had his probation reinstated on Friday after he was involved in an alleged hit-and-run accident. The hit-and-run charge was dismissed earlier.

Brown also suffered a seizure earlier this month.

Brown's publicist, Nicole Perna, said the Grammy-winning performer regrets that he will not be able to perform.

Brown has been dealing with legal problems since 2009, when he was arrested for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna and was first placed on probation.
