Snoop Dogg denied British Visa

Co headlining tour with P Diddy in doubt

Snoop Dogg has been denied a visa to enter Britain, putting his tour in doubt, it has been announced today (March 24).

The rapper accepted a police caution after being arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and affray at Heathrow Airport in April last year.

Snoop Dogg is currently co-headlining European tour with P Diddy and had been due to play five UK dates.

A spokesperson for him said: “Snoop and his team are mystified at the decision. They are hoping that the British government will reconsider this decision, especially as he has toured here before and sees the UK as being the highlight of the tour.

“He has asked how he can help rectify the situation and would happily talk to and give assurances to the officials. Many routes are being explored to the prime minister to have the decision reversed.”

The spokesperson added that a planned gig at Wembley Arena on Tuesday (March 27) would go ahead whatever the outcome and that: “Discussions are underway with production teams so that Snoop can still be involved in the show.”

Sky reports that a Foreign and Commonwealth Office representative said: “We would never comment on visa applications by an individual.”
