Snoop Dogg Permanently Banned From UK

Rapper Snoop Dogg has been permanently banned from entering the United Kingdom, after a brawl in London's Heathrow airport in April.

Snoop Dogg and an entourage of almost 30 people were en route from Los Angeles to Johannesburg, South Africa, to perform at a major festival.

The rapper and other men became upset when they were denied entry into British Airways' first-class lounge.

A huge brawl ensued and seven officers suffered minor injuries.

Sources told that the Home Office banned Snoop from the country because of his previous criminal record in the United States.

Snoop had already been banned from flying with British Airways and police in the UK had issued him a caution over the incident.

Offenders do have the chance to be admitted under special circumstances, but sources said they do not apply to Snoop, who could lose millions in performance and appearance fees.
