Lauryn Hill has cancelled her upcoming gig in London after being barred from entering the UK. The 40-year-old has released a statement apologising to her fans, saying that her 'past legal situation' is preventing her from coming to England. It is believed the situation the former Fugees singer is referring to is her conviction for tax evasion in 2013. 

Lauryn, who was due to play at the O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on Wednesday, wrote on her Facebook page: 'I've been informed that I won't be able to enter the UK for a period of time due to my past legal situation. 'For this reason I have to cancel my concert on July 15th. Know that I was looking forward to performing in London this summer, and that I appreciate all of my fans and supporters both in London, and throughout the UK. 

Her fans were understandably upset to hear of the cancellation, with one writing: "Bulls***... they can't hold a queen down!' Another added: 'No to Lauryn Hill - but Kanye West can come and pollute our ear drums as and when he chooses to.'
