Lenny Kravitz’s charity dental clinic in the Bahamas has been shut down after officials reportedly failed to obtain the proper permits to practice in the country.
The American Woman singer, who lives on the island, sponsored a free dental programme in Eleuthera through his Let Love Rule Foundation and he recently flew four American dentists to the facility to provide their services to locals for free for four days.
However, on 14 December (15), the final day of the clinic, police and immigration officers stormed the building and ordered everyone to leave.
“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,” reads the local police report.
“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.”
Kravitz’s representative has declined to comment on the reports, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.
