Doherty Refused Entry Into The U.s. For Lennon Show

Rock wildman PETE DOHERTY missed a New York performance with SEAN LENNON on Thursday night (10Jun10) after U.S. customs officers refused to let the Brit enter the country.
The Libertines and Babyshambles frontman was denied entry when he arrived at John F. Kennedy International Airport and he was told to go home.
Lennon, who went on with his planned show, told fans that Doherty was met by airport police upon landing in New York.
Doherty was scheduled to perform with Lennon at a Milk Studios magazine launch party in Manhattan.
A source tells WENN, Doherty was detained for eight hours at the airport before he was put on another plane bound for London.
The rocker has been unable to obtain U.S. work visas in recent years due to past drug arrests in Europe.
It still isn't clear why Doherty was denied entry into the United States on Thursday.
