AMAs Production Company addresses Chris Brown's cancelled performance

The American Music Award Production Company has broken its silence on the drama surrounding R&B singer Chris Brown, after his performance was pulled from Sunday's Live show at last minute.

A spokesperson for the company revealed in a statement that the tribute was not in line with the creative direction of the show, insisting that Brown was not at fault.

Brown shared the news of the cancellation with his over 124 million followers on Saturday, adding that he was not given a reason for the decision.

Fans and peers including singers Ciara and Kelly Rowland, have since come to his defense, as he continues to face backlash for his 2009 assault of then girlfriend Rihanna.

Rumours had been circulation online that the AMAs pulled the plug because of the incident.

While accepting the Favourite Male R&B Award for Brown on Sunday's show, Rowland silenced the booing audience and thanked Chris for being a great performer and musician.

She doubled down on her support in a candid interview, stating that we all mess up from time to time and are deserving of grace.

Brown's performance was billed as a tribute to Michael Jackson, in celebration of the 40th anniversary of his historic album "Thriller."
