Flo Rida is having a really bad trip Down Under: Tazers, weed, canceled shows and more

Traveling to Australia from the United States can be difficult. It’s a really long flight, the toilets flush in the opposite direction, there are crazy-scary spiders everywhere, and there’s always the chance that you’ll run into Paul Hogan.

It’s disorienting and strange, so it’s understandable if a touring act heads down under and experiences a little turbulence along the way.

Still, rapper Flo Rida is having an exceptionally terrible time on the opposite side of the Earth. According to Pollstar, he did not appear at two different shows on the continent in the midst of “transportation and lodging issues.” His first appearance, at a 13,000-strong festival called Fat as Butter, was called off only hours before he was supposed to appear. In a statement, the promoter of the festival noted that he had already been paid in full and that fans were deeply disappointed by the no-show.

Later that night, Flo arrived at a club in Sydney for another show, but because of his tardiness (he was three hours late) and his general demeanor (the club owner said he was not in “suitable condition to perform”), that too was called off.

He did manage to make a performance the next day in Townsville, Queensland, though that was also semi-disastrous. During the show, police raided the hotel after they smelled marijuana smoke and detained Dakari Dalawn Phillips, Flo Rida’s personal assistant. Police discovered both weed and an Uzi taser, so Phillips will face both drug and weapons charges.

Flo himself was arrested for DUI in Miami earlier this year.

    Who cares, just another second rate rapper who surrounds himself with weapons and drugs. Typical.
