The struggles of having over $400,000 in jewels.
According to TMZ, rapper Lil Jon was detained at a Vietnam airport while on tour due to his jewelry.
According to a source, the rapper had performed at Envy Nightclub in Saigon without incident, but that when he and his entourage headed to the airport on Nov. 16, Lil Jon was told that he should have declared all the jewelry with him. Quick-thinking Jon had his reps call the US Embassy, and two staffers came to his aid.
We hear that local authorities initially said Jon could leave, but his jewelry would have to stay behind to be professionally appraised.
Ultimately they decided to let him go with no fine.
