Hip-hop star Snoop Dogg's UK appearances with pal Sean Combs have been thrown into jeopardy after the star was denied a visa to enter Britain.
The rapper - real name CALVIN BROADUS - is currently touring Europe with Combs, with the pair slated to perform five dates in the country next week (beg26MAR07)
Tour bosses have admitted they are confused by the authorities decision to prevent Snoop entering the UK - and hope the issue can be resolved as soon as possible.
A representative for the tour says, "Snoop and his team are mystified at the decision and 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."
A spokesperson from the UK's Foreign and Commonwealth Office refused to comment on the star's visa problems, saying, "We would never comment on visa applications by individuals."
Tuesday's (27MAR07) gig at Wembley Arena, London, will go ahead, irrespective of Snoop's visa issues.
