Grammy award-winning singer Chris Brown's fate remains in limbo in the Philippines, with officials saying he has yet to apply for the emigration clearance needed to leave the country.

The 26-year-old R&B artist has been stuck in Manila for a third day after running afoul of a corporation, run by an influential religious group's members, that filed a fraud complaint against him for a canceled concert last New Year's Eve.

He performed Tuesday at a packed concert in Manila but has not applied for the clearance despite repeated notices that he needed to.

The clearance from Immigration Commissioner Siegfred Mison is needed because of the fraud complaint filed against him.

Justice Secretary Leila de Lima said Friday said state prosecutors will summon Brown for a preliminary investigation into the complaint.
