Kim Kardashian and Kanye West skip TSA checkpoint, delay flight by nearly an hour

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Despite being one of the most talked about couple, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West still were named a security risk when a star-struck staffer helped the celebrity couple bypass the standard security checkpoint, which in turn made the airline delay for roughly an hour.

New York Daily News reports that West and Kardashian were returning from a trip in Brazil and hurrying to a connecting flight. A TSA employee allowed the expecting parents to slip by the checkpoint.

A spokesperson reveals, “In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to bypass the TSA security checkpoint.”

According to the report, the couple was stopped before boarding the plane and was checked per-protocol right there in the jetway.
“TSA officials learned of the violation and conducted a private screening of the two passengers in the area of the jetway,” the spokesperson continued. “The passengers were cleared to board their flight.”

NBC News NY reports that following the incident the unidentified employee is under investigation.
