The 46 year-old has already been blocked from entering New Zealand for a motivational speaking event.

Promoter Max Markson tells Paul Murray, he's been on the straight and narrow for some time.

Blog comments Your Say

  • @Justin, I see your point. So what harm could one more grub do? I'd rather not give him time and space if we don't like him, unless of course we know for sure he is going to say things which are against our laws.

    Why not simply ignore him? That should be enough to show our distaste if we had to.

  • Why not? Fifty Cent and other ex-crim 'rappers' have been allowed in. Yet they didnt let Prussian Blue into the country. They are two harmless White girls who sing songs about their race but they werent allowed in!
    Its pretty obvious the government of this country hates its own people.
