LOS ANGELES, May 16 (UPI) — U.S. rapper Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus has been told he is no longer welcome in Britain.
Britain’s Home Office permanently banned the Los Angeles-based, hip-hop star, who received a caution from London police Monday for his part in an April brawl at Heathrow Airport that left some police with minor injuries, AllHipHop.com reported Tuesday.
The rapper and his entourage sparked the airport brawl when some of them were denied entry to British Airways’ first-class lounge. As many as 30 people were drawn into the melee.
British Airways banned the rapper from its airline as a result of the brawl.
Sources said British security officials banned Snoop because of his U.S. criminal history. The rapper now stands to lose millions in concert and appearance fees because of the ban, AllHipHop.com said.
