According to his lawyer the situation was explained: “We clarified everything from a legal point of view. The money came from concerts he had performed around Europe. There was no crime; it was just an administrative infraction,” In the European Union, the maximum amount of undeclared cash anyone can take is 10,000 euros. According to a statement given Saturday morning by Andrea Parisi, Calvin Broadus (the real name of entertainer Snoop Dogg) only got to keep half of the money he was carrying with himself.
The money he made while touring Europe after releasing the album “Bush” earlier this year was split in two. Italian authorities decided to keep half of the sum until they can determine how big will the amount of the fine be.
