Singer Chris Brown is doing his best to keep in touch with his baby boy Aeko, despite travel restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Brown, who lives in the U.S., has been FaceTiming with his son and the mother of his child, Ammika Harris, who are both currently in Germany. The two traveled to Europe in January, but with President Donald Trump’s recent travel ban, Chris is not able to visit them. In addition, the EU has decided to close its own borders as well.
A source close to the R&B star says, “this is not easy on Chris because right now he doesn’t know exactly when he’s going to be able to see his son again. First there was the US travel ban and now the EU has fully closed their borders so he can’t go there and visit for at least a month. It’s rough. Chris is doing his best to stay strong. He FaceTimes with Ammika and he gets to see Aeko that way. And she sends him videos and pictures all day.”
Even before the crisis, Ammika had been in Germany for work purposes (she is a model for Fashion Nova) and to visit her mom who lives there.
Although U.S. residents are allowed to come back from Europe, it isn’t that simple. Travelers must fly to one of the 13 pre-approved U.S. airports, where they will be screened. If tested positive for the virus, they will unfortunately not be allowed back into the United States. If they get the green light, a 14-day self-quarantine will still be required.
Meanwhile, Chris has been self-isolating at his house in California after the governor issued a statewide order for residents to stay at home.
