Brown finally leaves Manila

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.

Aviation authorities said the plane left yesterday around 9.30pm local time en route to Hong Kong. Brown performed at a 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 cert, he then had to sit through a three-hour delay at the airport.
