In September last year (15) the controversial R&B singer signed up for a residency at Sin City’s Drai’s nightclub, a deal which saw him take-up a short term residency, reportedly with a view to a longer term arrangement.

However Chris angered bosses at the club after he wrote in a post on Instagram in May (16) that he felt some of the venue’s staff failed to respect him and were racist. The singer has subsequently deleted the post.

“DRAIS (sic) has some people working for them that always are on a power trip,” the musician wrote. “Some racist s**t. I PACK THIS CLUB OUT EVERY SINGLE TIME MY NAME IS ON THE FLYER. I KEEP THE LIGHTS ON IN THIS PLACE. I ain’t no slave or an employee of this establishment. So MAKE SURE YOU PUT SOME RESPEK (sic) ON MY NAME!”

Editors at TMZ.com obtained a letter from Drai’s management to Chris’ attorney setting down an ultimatum stating that unless he apologised for making the accusations, he would not be welcome as a performer at the venue.

The gossip site also report that the letter also indicates that Drai’s bosses are concerned that the musician has “garnered negative public attention” due to his alleged recent erratic behaviour.

The Loyal musician’s former manager Mike G has filed a lawsuit alleging Chris attacked him without provocation earlier this year (16). He also hit the headlines last month (Jun16) when abusive text messages emerged towards his publicist Nicole Perna, who he subsequently fired.

Chris was also allegedly kicked out of a vacation home on the Spanish party island of Ibiza by the landlord after causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.

At the time of WENN going to press, neither bosses at Drai’s or Chris had publicly commented on the reports, however no future appearances by Chris are listed on the nightclub’s website.
