Celebrities always seem to have problems on planes, whether it is Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong getting told to keep his pants up or director Kevin Smith being told that he was too obese to safely fly. Now, you can add troubled singer Whitney Houston to the list. She was almost booted off a Delta Airlines flight because she refused to buckle her seat belt.
Sources told TMZ that the “I Will Always Love You” singer was boarding a flight from Atlanta and “got diva” on a crew member that asked her to put on her seat belt. She refused to put it on until another told her that she could get kicked off the flight if she refused.
Fox News reports that she did not buckle the seat belt herself. Rather, the second crew member did it for her. Only then, was the plane cleared for take off.
A source close to Houston admitted to TMZ that she may have overreacted a little bit, but she is “still 100% sober.” The same source told TMZ that she was en route to Detroit where she is filming a new film.
During the summer, Houston sought help for her alcohol and drug addiction in a 30-day rehab program, according to TMZ.
