Whitney Houston may be sober now, but she’s still a diva. Her latest shenanigans happened on a Delta Airways flight, where TMZ reports that she almost got kicked off due to refusing to put a seat belt on! The incident happened yesterday afternoon, when she got on a plane in Atlanta. Sources say that when approached by a crew member and asked to buckle up, Whitney unleashed her diva. Because sometimes egos are so big that seat belts can’t contain them.
It got so out of hand that another crew member had to intervene to give the songstress a warning — either buckle up or get off the plane. The story is that Whitney finally calmed down enough to allow a crew member to fasten the seat belt for her. Shall we even ask why she couldn’t do it herself?
The plane was only allowed to take off once Whitney had been buckled in, so we can’t imagine what the mood of the rest of the passengers was like during this ordeal. Sources close to the singer say that this behavior had nothing today with any substances whatsoever, revealing that she just, “overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight, but she’s still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie.” Overreacted a little bit? Seriously? What would overreacting a whole lot be then? We don’t even want to go there!
