However, we're not sure the A-lister is ACTUALLY going to make the Brazil stops on his Purpose World Tour, as a Brazilian judge has granted a request to reopen a criminal case out against the pop star. Eek.

A popular Brazilian actor has died after drowning in a river where he had shot scenes for his hit soap opera.
Domingos Montagner went for a swim on Thursday afternoon in the São Francisco River in a small town called Caninde in the northeastern Brazilian state of Sergipe — but during his outing, he was carried away by a strong current.
This is all according to actress Camila Pitanga, who was apparently with the 54-year-old when the incident occurred. Luckily, she was able to swim to a rock and cling to it, eventually pulling herself out of the water before getting help for Montagner.
