Lil Wayne Barred From Entering The United Kingdom Because Of His Criminal History

After being denied entry to the United Kingdom, Lil Wayne had to cancel an international festival appearance. The Young Money rapper was set to play at the Strawberries & Creem Event on Saturday, June 18, but his entry was denied at the “last minute” by the Home Office, according to festival organizers.

“Due to extreme circumstances beyond our control or influence, we are very sorry to inform you that Lil Wayne is now unable to perform at the festival on Saturday 18th June,” read Strawberries & Creem in a statement. “Lil Wayne has been refused entry to the U.K. directly by the Home Office in a last minute decision. We are deeply disappointed by this sudden and negative ruling.”

A spokeswoman for a Home Office told Rolling Stone, “Any individual who has been sentenced to a custodial sentence of 12 months or more must have their application refused.” Wayne’s arrest on weapons charges in 2007 appears to be the subject of the statement. He was sentenced to a year in prison, but due to good behavior, he was freed after eight months.

Wayne’s first appearance in the United Kingdom in 14 years would have been Strawberries & Creem. On Saturday, Ludacris will take his place.
