Lily Allen's visa

Lily Allen's visa

U.K. pop singer Lily Allen was detained at Los Angeles International Airport for five hours after officials found that her U.S. work visa had been canceled. She is scheduled to begin a concert tour across the United States in September, according to the BBC, and had been slated to arrive in time for the MTV Video Music Awards announcements on Tuesday.

Her visa cancellation was in connection with her June arrest for an alleged assault, preceded by another in March. Both incidents took place in London.

Allen was questioned during her detainment but not strip-searched, her spokesperson said.

"I am trying everything I can to sort this out," Allen said in a statement. "I want my fans to know that I will do everything I can to be back in America in September. I don't like letting my fans down, and this is a situation that I am sure we can sort." (The Advocate)
