UK Nightclub Owner Says Snoop Dogg Left Hundreds Of Thousand Of Pounds In His Club

A UK nightclub owner has said Snoop Dogg left a bag with around £400,000 in cash at his venue, before going off to spend the night at a Travelodge. Savvy. No wonder he's got piles of cash.

George Sloan, 61, says the rapper appeared at his club Timepiece, in Exeter back in 2014, to put on a DJ-set, which went down a treat with customers, apparently.

But George says the next day he got a call from a member of Snoop's entourage, who explained that the rapper had left his rucksack behind.

The club-owner says he took a peep inside and saw that it was filled with thousands of pounds, which must have been a bit of a bloody shock for the fella.

Despite having enough money to buy a two-bedroom house in Exeter, modest Snoop opted to spend the night in a fifty-quid-a-night Travelodge on the outskirts of the city.

George, who has run Timepiece since 1993, said: "They said 'we've left a large rucksack upstairs behind the DJ box, could we come and pick it up?

"I said I'd left for the night, but I'd see if I could arrange for someone to go and have a look.

"Snoop Dogg had played the night before at Boardmasters in Newquay as part of a mini-tour we'd organised and he usually insisted that he's paid in cash.

"So, there was this bag which we just assumed had the usual in it, but what we didn't realise was that it had all the money he had been paid from the events he had played so far.

"I reckon there must have been around £300,000-400,000 in there. I could have retired that night"

Speaking about meeting the rapper, George added: "Snoop was the most laid back person I think I have ever met.

''I spent about 20 minutes with him and all I got was 'cool'. The evening was 'cool', the club was 'cool', the crowd was 'cool'.

"He posed for photographs and signed autographs. There was nothing outrageous on his rider, just a specific type of gin. He was very charming."

As well as being 'charming', Snoop also showed he's pretty friendly and extended an invite to a private party at Cannes Film Festival, but our man George declined for some reason.
