Lenny Kravitz has been accused of providing no cost illegal dental surgeries in the Bahamas, where the musician owns a residence. The pop-up free clinic was also reportedly raided by the police on the island of Eleuthera, with an accusation that the organization did not have correct permits in order to practice dental surgery in the country. According to Kravitz during the incident, the clinic was instated through his Let Love Rule Foundation in addition to the GLO Good Foundation.
According to NME, The New York Post's Page Six released a police report that read, "Sometime around 1:33pm on Saturday 12/12/15 the Police received a report that there was a group of persons operating an illegal clinic at the Catholic Hall in Gregory Town."
The reporter further stated, "As a result, Officers visited the location along with immigration officers. While there they spoke with Mr. Lenny Kravitz, who reported that he was hosting the free clinic through his Let Love Rule Foundation in conjunction with the GLO Good Foundation. Mr. Kravitz was not able to produce documentation authorizing the event, as a result he was informed that he was in breach of the Immigration and Public Health Acts and was instructed to cease all operations until proper authorization was obtained."
Page Six also reportedly reached out to a Kravitz representative, but received no comment on the matter.
This is one incident in a string of embarrassments this year, including "Penisgate" where his leather pants tore during a gig in Grona Lund theme park in Stockholm, Sweden. When the pants ripped during the first song, it exposed pierced genitals to the crowd.
In February, Kravitz also cancelled an upcoming tour of Asia and Australia, which included four shows in Japan, stops in the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia, as well as three gigs in Australia. Kravitz cited "unforeseen scheduling issues" behind the decision to cancel. It was suggested that the cancellations may have had a lot to do with his starring role in The Hunger Games.
