On the morning of June 25th, 2009, Chris Brown was scheduled to meet with his idol: the legendary Michael Jackson. Only problem for Chris was that Mike already had an appointment scheduled…an appointment with the afterlife.

The “Deuces” singer recently revealed  to Nylon magazine that he and fellow crooner Jamie Foxx had planned on checking out Jackson’s rehearsal for his ill-fated This Is It tour while at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but were told to stall their travel plans when Jackson failed to show up for rehearsals.

Brown, who performed an emotional tribute to his  fallen hero at the BET Awards last year, went on to tell the magazine that the meeting would have fallen on the day Jackson died in June of 2009.

“Me and Jamie Foxx were going to see him and (someone called) and they were like, ‘Hold up. He didn’t show up yet.’ And then we got the call later (that he had died) and it was devastating.”

Devastating indeed. And not only that, but one hell of a roller coaster ride. From excitement to sadness just like that…
