UK Still Hating on Snoop Dogg

Oh come on, don't y'all know Snoop's a Mormon now?

Challenge to Snoop Dogg's UK entry


The Government is challenging a decision to allow rapper Snoop Dogg into the country.

The star, 36, was banned from entering Britain in March last year following his involvement in a brawl with police at Heathrow Airport.

More than 65,000 fans had expected to see him perform in the Heavyweights Of Hip-Hop tour, alongside hip-hop mogul P Diddy, but it had to be cancelled.

In January Snoop Dogg successfully appealed against the ruling and was given entry clearance by an asylum immigration tribunal.

But the UK Border Agency is challenging this ruling on the coming Monday.

A spokesman announcecd: "We were disappointed with the judge's decision in this case and have challenged his decision. This hearing is due to take place on the 7th of April. It would not be appropriate to comment further while these proceedings are ongoing."

A ruling on the case is not expected on Monday.In 2007, Snoop Dogg was refused entry into Australia because of his extensive criminal record.
