Chris Brown left his bodyguard behind in Bermuda following an alleged bust-up on board a private jet, according to local reports.
The "Kiss Kiss" star was traveling back to the U.S. from Ghana on Wednesday following a gig in the African country when his plane stopped in Bermuda to refuel.
Editors of the Bermuda Sun publication report the jet was getting ready to leave when the departure was stalled and the passengers disembarked.
Brown and his entourage then re-boarded the plane, leaving a bodyguard named Pat behind to make his own way back to the U.S.
An airport worker tells the publication, "I'm not sure of the details of what happened on the plane but his plane came in, got serviced and everything was finishing and they were getting ready to leave. Then there was a stall. The security guard got off first. He was standing outside talking to the pilot. Then Chris Brown and another guy came off...
"They then went outside to have a cigarette. The security guard came inside (the airport building) and said he wasn't getting back on the plane... Chris went back through Customs and the plane left at about 2:20pm."
Pat left several hours later on a flight to New York.
Brown performed at the Accra Sports Stadium in Ghana on Tuesday night, but his appearance there was mired in controversy as audience members complained about his bad language on stage and alleged he smoked a banned substance during his set. Pictures of Brown smoking during the concert have since emerged online.
