A plane carrying Chris Brown has taken off from Manila's airport after a legal complaint stranded the Grammy award-winning singer for three days, a Philippine official has said.

Civil aviation authority spokesman Eric Apolonio said the plane left around 9.30pm local time en route to Hong Kong.

The Grammy award-winner performed at a packed concert in Manila on Tuesday, but required an emigration clearance to leave the country because a fraud complaint had been filed against him.

After he obtained the certificate, he and about 10 other people walked to the private plane at a hangar.

He then had to sit through a three-hour delay at the airport and fly to Hong Kong instead of Macau.

Brown has a scheduled concert in Macau on Friday night.
