Interview: Nigella Lawson Denied Entry To U.S.

AM 820 News anchor Robert Pankau spoke to ABC News correspondent Tom Rivers about celebrity chef Nigella Lawson.

Lawson, who acknowledged last year that she had occasionally used cocaine, was denied permission to board a flight to the United States over the weekend. The U.S. Embassy did not disclose the reason for refusing Lawson entry into the United States, but a spokeswoman said on Thursday that Lawson was stopped from traveling Sunday and had subsequently been invited to the embassy to apply for a visa. Lawson has been embroiled in a nasty divorce, during which her drug use came to light.
