The singer was scheduled to participate in the basketball association's All-Star festivities in Phoenix Sunday and was also planning to play in a celebrity game two days prior to the event.

Brown turned himself in to Los Angeles police Sunday night for an alleged battery on a woman, who was later learned to be his girlfriend, singer Rihanna.

Brown, 19, has also had his ads with Wrigley gum suspended after the incident.

"Wrigley is concerned by the serious allegations made against Chris Brown ," a company spokesperson tells Us. "We believe Mr. Brown should be afforded the same due process as any citizen."

The case is being presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorneys office. Additional charges, including those of domestic violence, may be filed.
