15 Celebrities Who Caught Behaving Badly On Planes

Celebrities are not known for their patience, and they most likely did not get famous for being pleasant. As a result, it’s not surprising that this list of celebrities who have been thrown off planes is long. This is a long series of celebrities who have gone completely rogue and then been kicked off planes (not in mid-flight, but the crew definitely considered it), caught in airports, and criticized in the media by individuals who observed their outrageous behavior personally.

Just because you’re famous doesn’t give you permission to be a jerk, and as this list demonstrates, there are consequences. Celebrity gossip mongers have forced celebs off planes, placed them in jail, and even thrown them under the bus.

#1 Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg and his team caused complete chaos at London’s Heathrow Airport in April 2006. Snoop and his pals were supposedly furious when they were denied access to British Airways’ first-class airport lounge. Seven police officers were injured in the ensuing “mini-riot.” During the melee, Snoop and his posse also threw whiskey bottles.

They were all apprehended. The UK rejected Snoop a visa for his trip the following year.

Snoop Dogg was eventually cleared, and video footage from the day of the altercation shows a cheerful Snoop entertaining many children in the airport before becoming enraged with security when he is ordered to leave the lounge area and board the plane.

#2 Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds was puked on while traveling from New York to New Orleans on October 20, 2013. While sitting in first class because the passenger in front of him puked on the window. Reynolds, who was dressed in a beige sweater and sat next to his wife, Blake Lively, was provided aircraft napkins to clean up vomit that one onlooker described as “primarily made up of red wine.”

Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), the napkins did not eliminate the puke or the odor, so the hunky celebrity removed the sweater and apparently flew in a thin t-shirt for the rest of the journey.

#3 Courtney Love

In 2003, singer Courtney Love threw an epic tantrum on a Virgin Airways flight, refusing to sit down and basically being… Courtney Love. She refused to wear her seatbelt, she refused to calm down, and she verbally attacked the flight crew from Los Angeles to London. She was imprisoned for several hours when the plane landed.

So, what exactly went wrong? In this example, she was obviously enraged because an attendant refused to allow her friend to join her in first class.

#4 David Hasselhoff

Didn’t you just know The Hoff would be on this list? Yep. David Hasselhoff was barred from flying on a British Airways flight in 2008 because he was too buzzed. Of course, he denied this, because, as we all know, Hasselhoff never drinks – except in this montage clip.

#5 Josh Duhamel

Josh Duhamel may appear to be an all-around pleasant man, but appearances may be deceiving. Duhamel was reportedly kicked from a flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport in early December 2010. Duhamel allegedly became enraged when requested to turn off his Blackberry before taking off, as normal, non-celebrity individuals do. An enraged Duhamel “taunted” the flight attendant before being removed off the plane by cops.

#6 Diana Ross

Diana Ross made news in 1999 when she was arrested for allegedly attacking a security agent at London’s Heathrow Airport. She was apparently irritated when female security attempted to conduct a full body search on her before she boarded her Concord flight. (She’d set off a metal detector, necessitating a thorough search, which is standard procedure.) Unless you are well-known.)

Ross decided to frisk the guard. The Motown legend was apprehended but eventually released following the incident.

#7 Gérard Depardieu

When you have to go, you have to go. That’s probably what actor Gérard Depardieu was thinking when he urinated on the floor of a CityJet airliner poised to take off. He’d supposedly begged to go, but the crew told him to wait. To be fair, the plane was stuck on the runway. Sure, that stinks. But that doesn’t explain Depardieu’s behavior at the time, when he was 62.

Was Depardieu indeed thrown off the airplane from Paris to Dublin? CityJet refused to reveal names, only saying that a passenger who “looked drunk” was “escorted from the plane together with his two traveling companions and their bags.”

#8 Naomi Campbell

The supermodel went completely off the rails on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles in April 2008. She was thrown from the plane before it even took off from Heathrow Airport. What triggered Ms. Campbell’s rage? Luggage was misplaced.

Campbell’s luggage was not loaded into the plane. British Airways dispatched the pilot to personally apologize to Campbell. She was having none of it, launching into a protracted rant into her cell phone.

Campbell was helped off the plane, but not without a (cat) battle. She spit on one officer, smacked another with her phone, and attempted to skewer them all with her stilettos. She was later found guilty of disorderly conduct and striking an officer.

#9 Alec Baldwin

When the flight attendant instructs you to turn off all electronic devices, she means it. Alec Baldwin reportedly refused to turn off his cell phone while waiting for takeoff at LAX. Regardless of how many times he was asked, he ignored the request. It grew so bad that the plane had to taxi back to the gate where Baldwin was removed.

#10 Christian Slater

In December 1994, actor Christian Slater landed himself in a lot of trouble when he tried to board an aircraft at New York’s JFK airport while carrying an unregistered weapon (a 9 mm) in his luggage. (Even before 9/11, this was a massive no-no.)

Slater was detained right there at the Delta airport, charged with criminal possession of a weapon, and subsequently sentenced to three days of community service (as part of a plea bargain).

#11 Kate Moss

A week in Turkey for sunbathing and yoga apparently wasn’t enough to give Kate Moss a more tranquil outlook on life. As soon as her easyJet flight touched down in London in June 2015, the supermodel was dragged off. Officials would only say that they had been summoned to assist a “non-compliant passenger.”

Others on board, however, claim Moss was drinking vodka from her suitcase and may have gotten into a dispute about the high cost of in-flight beverages.

#12 Azealia Banks

The rapper was caught on camera in September 2015 calling a flight attendant a “f*cking f*ggot.” When Banks’ flight landed in Los Angeles, she attempted to push by a French couple in her haste to get out the door. Banks fell backward before departing the plane as the flight attendant grabbed her bag and begged her to calm down.

#13 Selma Blair

Selma Blair was kicked from a Delta flight from Cancun, Mexico to Los Angeles International Airport in June 2016 for flipping out. Blair allegedly began screaming and shouting: “He burns my private[s] […] He won’t let me eat or drink” after allegedly mixing alcohol and prescription medicine throughout the flight. According to reports, she was also heard saying: “He outperforms me. He’s going to [put an end to] me.”

Following the landing, she was carried off the plane on a stretcher by nurses and paramedics.

#14 Lamar Odom

Months after nearly dying from an overdose in a Nevada cathouse, former NBA star and ex-Mr. Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom couldn’t stay sober. Odom was removed on a Delta flight in Los Angeles before it took departure for New York in July 2016.

He was observed drinking in the Delta lounge, according to witnesses. He was so inebriated by the time he boarded the plane that he vomited on himself twice (once in the galley and once in the bathroom) before being booted off.

#15 Jonathan Rhys Meyers

On July 8, 2018, actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after a verbal argument with his wife, Mara Lane. Meyers and Lane were on their way to Los Angeles from Miami when Meyers began arguing with her while puffing on an e-cigarette. Meyers stopped when a flight attendant urged him to.

According to Airport Authorities Public Information Officer Rob Pedregon, police decided “no crime was committed and parties were released.”
