UK celebrity chef Nigella Lawson, whose private life hit the headlines when she testified about drug use last year, was prevented from boarding a flight from London to the United States, a U.S. official said Thursday.
Lawson was turned back from boarding British Airways Flight 283 from London Heathrow to Los Angeles on March 30, said Lynne Platt, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in London.
Platt would not say why Lawson had been stopped. A representative for Lawson declined to comment.
Lawson made headlines late last year when she admitted to drug use during the fraud trial of two former personal assistants to Lawson.
Platt said Lawson had been invited to come to the U.S. Embassy in London to apply for a visa for travel to the United States.

She may have been planning to enter the U.S. under the visa waiver program for British citizens coming for tourism. The airline may have felt that she was really coming for work reasons and would be denied entry when she reached L.A.
The US had a cokehead president a few years ago (George W) but wont let Nigella in because she did a few lines years ago?
