The Game

Banned from Canada Over Gang Ties

4/21/2011 6:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Game was detained in Canada for several hours yesterday, TMZ has learned, before his ass got deported back to the U.S. -- and we're told, it's all because of the rapper's alleged gang affiliation.

A rep for Substance Entertainment Group -- the promotion company behind Game's tour in Canada -- tells TMZ, the tour promoter got a call from Canadian Customs while Game was on the plane on his way to Canada.

We're told customs informed the promoter that Game would be denied entry "due to new information received that Game is affiliated with organized crime and is an active member of the Bloods street gang."

The rep claims Game was blindsided by the last-minute red flag -- telling us, concert organizers had secured all permits and approval weeks ago to get Game into the country.

Bad news for everyone who bought a ticket to his upcoming Canadian shows -- tour's cancelled.

My favorite "Game" incident

Last night, The Game was doing an interview on Hot 97, where he
couldn't avoid talking about video chicks and, eventually, Vida Guerra. He clarified the rumors about him dating her, insisting that they were never true, and then went on to say that, while at Jamie Foxx's birthday party, he fingered her in 'both tunnels'.

Vida then calls him a liar:

Can anyone out there tell me why TMZ. Would print this story... which is not even news worthy... but overlook a story like this one below :

"CINCINNATI REDS PITCHER - MIKE LEAKE - ARRESTED BEFORE GAME!!"

In a stunning case of alleged retail theft that makes little sense to anybody, Cincinnati Reds pitcher Mike Leake(notes) was arrested and booked Monday afternoon for allegedly stealing $59.88 worth of merchandise from a Macy's department store in downtown Cincy.

The second-year right-hander, in case you're wondering, makes $425,000 a year and received a $2.3 million signing bonus after being drafted out of Arizona State.

Cincinnati.com is on the case:

Leake is accused of stealing six American Rag T-shirts from the store, removing the security tags and leaving the store without paying for them.

Police said incident was caught on security cameras at Macy's.

Six $9.99 T-shirts?! Hopefully it turns out to be a misunderstanding (like the case of saggy pants mall ejectee Dez Bryant), but at the moment Mr. Leake stands to spend up to 180 days in jail if convicted of this misdemeanor.

That would be about 180 more days than he's spent in the minor leagues, of course. To date, Leake had been noted for a meteoric rise to the Reds major league rotation — entirely bypassing the minors — after being a first-round pick of the club in 2009.

Maybe the reason TMZ did not published the story... is because he's the wrong color ?!? know that couldn't be...

Y'all don't start Patting Canada and our "STRICT" rules on the back just yet. We've got more LANDED immigrants here with NO proper papers that are gang affliated. The only time the CANADIAN government puts their foot down with stuff like this is when it's in the best interest to get press and with Big name celebrities. We are NO DIFFERENT than California, trust me!!

LMFAO, we don't need Mexican drug cartels, we have everyone else's here. You can't go onto any STREET in my area without finding a crack shack, a grow op or a meth lab. Hell, cocaine ain't the drug of choice here when you can buy all you need off a store shelf and make meth for five bucks a hit.

Rather have someone real like the Game than a fake rapper/gangster like Rick Ross.
He should go back into the studio and try and make another classic album like "The Do***entary"
