Once again, Chris Brown's past has come back to haunt him. According to MTV, the "Loyal" singer's domestic violence history may be the deciding factor in whether he's allowed to take his "One Hell of a Nite" tour to Australia in December.

Although Chris has performed in the country twice since he was convicted of assaulting Rihanna in 2009, Australia's immigration department doesn't appear willing to budge on accepting his visa application. On Friday, Chris received a "notice of intention to consider refusal" in regards to gaining entry to Australia, but he was also granted 28 days to appeal the decision. But judging by the outcry from some Australian citizens who back the immigration's refusal, that may be easier said than done.

In the past two days, more than 14,000 people have signed a petition through the anti-domestic violence group GetUp! to have the 26-year-old banned from the country entirely. SPIN reports that the organization says their opposition to Chris visiting Australia isn't solely based on his 2009 assault case.

GetUp!'s Kelsey Cooke told SkyNews, "Chris Brown is not the point of this campaign." She continued, "It is about domestic violence and taking that seriously, rather than turning a blind eye."

This is the second time in the past couple of months that Chris has encountered trouble while performing abroad. In July, the singer was detained in the Philippines after local promoters claimed Breezy owed them money from a missed New Year's Eve performance.

Tickets for the "One Hell of a Nite" tour are set to go on sale Monday, Aug. 28, but if this case isn't resolved soon, the Australian fans who actually want to see Breezy hit the stage might be left blowing in the wind.
