Rising R'n'B stars Big Brovaz have sacked singer Flawless for trying to smuggle cannabis through an airport.

The band were travelling back to their native London from the Los Angeles premiere of Scooby Doo 2: MONSTERS UNLEASHED on Friday (19MAR04) when Flawless, real name TEMI ASIDA, was stopped by officials at LAX airport who found over 2.2 grams (0.07 ounces) of the illegal drug in his luggage.

The band - who hope to launch their careers in America after appearing in the new movie - have now decided to part company with Flawless, although they will make sure he is financially secure to thank him for his role in the group.

Singer RANDY says, "Big Brovaz were in a state of shock and felt Flawless let the side down. Sacking him was the hardest thing we ever had to do."

Fellow Brova J-ROCK adds, "Flawless knew how important this trip was and we felt really let down."

Flawless himself says, "I'm very sorry for this stupid behaviour. I put everyone's careers at stake. I hope they will forgive me."
