Chris Brown and Drake have reportedly cancelled plans to collaborate together onstage in Toronto tonight (August 4).

TMZ reports that the pair were going to play live together at Drake's OVO Fest event at the Molson Amphitheatre. However, Brown's recent legal woes are believed to have posed a problem with him getting into the country and his management cancelled the plan as a precautionary measure.

The duo were recently pictured in the studio together. The photo is the latest twist in the pair's friendship, which had appeared to disintegrate in 2012 as they were involved in a brawl in a New York nightclub. The fight was rumoured to be about Rihanna, Brown's ex-girlfriend and reported love interest of Drake.

Both parties were said to have filed lawsuits in the aftermath, accusing the other one of being responsible for the scuffle, in which the two artists and their entourages were reported to have started throwing punches and bottles in the W.i.P. club. The argument resulted in a gash on Chris Brown's chin.
