Rapper Snoop Lion is once again courting controversy after posting pictures of himself smoking marijuana while staying in a Gold Coast hotel.
Snoop Lion, formerly Snoop Dogg, posted the pictures on his Instagram account.
In one image, he is pictured sitting next to a fruit platter and a large bowl of marijuana.
The January 21 snap is captioned: "A Versace breakfast!"
The controversial performer was on the Gold Coast for the Big Day Out festival, where he stayed at the luxury hotel, Palazzo Versace.
Another photo shows the singer enjoying a "Versace morning" by smoking a rolled cigarette while draped in a fashionable scarf.
In an earlier snap he can be seen holding a joint with a marijuana emblem drawn on his fingernail.
Petition website Change.org had unsuccessfully tried to ban him from coming to Australia, citing immigration law provisions that stop people who "represent a danger" to the community from getting a visa.
But Snoop Lion's no stranger to controversy - in 2003, he infamously brought two female guests to the MTV Video Music Awards on chain leashes.
