Heathrow Airport, London, England (PRWEB UK) 10 April 2012
A word of warning to those of you travelling with your Bullets4Peace pendants. Kimberly Wyatt has tweeted that she was allegedly "attacked" by 10 security guards at a London airport.
"The former Pussycat Dolls singer was on her way to Los Angeles when officials at Heathrow Airport spotted the suspicious item in her luggage. The necklace features a real bullet and is sold by a charity that promotes world peace, but security personnel mistook it for live ammunition and took the star away for questioning.
"attacked by 10 security workers at the airport!! note to self- dont travel with `bullet for peace` necklace in bag!! yikes!!
Haha (sic)," Kimberly wrote on her Twitter page.
The guards eventually let Kimberly go in time to make her flight back to the US. She has been away from her native country for three months while she lived in the UK during her stint as a judge on new reality show Got To Dance, and was thrilled to be home.
"on the ground in lala land!! safe and sound!! :D thanks to everyone that danced with me! (sic)," she wrote.
Kimberly is not the only celebrity fan of "bullets for peace" jewellery to have a run-in with airport security. Rapper Snoop Dogg was questioned at Beirut International Airport last October after guards spotted the fashionable bullet hanging around his neck."
Due to airport restrictions, please make sure you carry your Bullets4Peace pendant safely in your checked baggage rather that carrying it on-board with you, to avoid confiscation of your jewellery.
