AMERICAN singer Chris Brown appears to be standing by his plans to head to Australia, despite reports his visa application may be denied.
There has been speculation Brown would be denied access for his tour of Australia due to his history of domestic violence.
Responding to a fan on Instagram, Brown said his entry had not been denied and his tour would go ahead.

“Don’t listen [to] the bulls**t. I’m coming,” Brown posted.
“It’s media and all bulls**t. We gone party.”
“Contrary to media reports, Chris Brown’s request to enter Australia on tour has not been denied,” his management said in a statement.
“This request is currently being considered by the office of the Immigration Minister.
“We respect their right to review this request and have faith that a decision will be made with the full consideration of his continued personal growth, ongoing philanthropic endeavours and desire to performs for his fans.”
The Australian government issued the US rapper with a formal notice of its intention to refuse his visa application because of his 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, on Friday.
However, tickets for his December show have gone on sale this morning.
Brown is booked to play four shows in Australia before heading to New Zealand for a single show in Auckland. All shows remained listed on his Facebook page on Monday morning.
