American rapper Snoop Dogg has paid a massive $5,700 (GBP3,000) for an Indian take-away to be flown to his London after-show party via private helicopter.

The DOGGYSTYLE star has ordered the food from The Four Pillars Indian restaurant in Buckinghamshire, England for his gig on Friday night (11FEB05) at London's Hammersmith Carling Apollo.

The eatery's manager JAMAL UDDIN says, "It is a big task for us.

"He is willing to pay a lot of money and he said cost was not an issue."
