The US invited British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson to reapply for a visa Thursday after she was blocked from entering at the weekend, reportedly for her admissions of cocaine use.
A spokeswoman for the US embassy in London declined to specify why Lawson had been barred from flying from Heathrow to Los Angeles on Sunday, after a newspaper report linked the incident to the chef’s past drug use.
But the spokeswoman suggested the 54-year-old “Domestic Goddess” should visit the embassy to reapply for a visa, saying any request would be dealt with “routinely and expeditiously”.
Lawson admitted last year to taking cocaine and cannabis in the past, as she appeared as a witness in the trial of two former personal assistants who were later cleared of fraud.
British police reviewed Lawson’s evidence but announced they would not be bringing any charges.
