Busta Rhymes pulled off plane after argument with passengers

Busta Rhymes was pulled by police from a British Airways flight when it landed at Heathrow Airport in London, it was reported.

The American rapper is said to have escorted after a heated argument with a female passenger in first class had started shortly before he left for New York on Monday evening.

The hip-hop star is believed to have boarded the flight with five bags just before closing the doors.

Witnesses told the MailOnline that the 47-year-old became “agitated, aggressive and rude” when he hurled insults at the passenger on the flight from JFK Airport.

Busta, whose real name is Trevor George Smith Jr. was met by the police at the request of a passenger when the flight landed yesterday morning at 6.52 am.

An unnamed passenger told the MailOnline: “Busta got on the plane and saw that this woman had put her luggage in his part of the storage cupboard.

“He was howling and growing, getting very angry and demanding to know why she had used his locker.

“As she cried more and more, her husband intervened and told him that he didn’t have to be so rude to his wife.

“He said he upset her when she was clearly happy to move her things.”

Other passengers and BA employees intervened when the argument escalated, according to witnesses.

The crew reportedly gave him a glass of water and talked to him to calm things down.

The captain would also have gone to the first class cabin to get the certainty that there would be no more problems.

It is claimed that Busta was given the option to leave the plane and get a new flight to London.

The rest of the flight to London saw no problems.

Busta was then escorted from the plane by waiting with police officers, but he was not arrested.

He performed yesterday on the Greek island of Mykonos and appears tomorrow night with a British grime star Stormzy at a festival in Romania.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers at Heathrow were asked by the airline of an incoming aircraft to Heathrow Airport from the US to participate after an alleged verbal dispute involving several passengers.

“They boarded the aircraft after it landed on Tuesday, July 30, around 6:52 AM and discussed with the parties involved. No reported injuries or violations had been reported. The passengers involved then continued their journeys.”

A BA spokesperson added: “Our cabin crew and captain reassured all the customers involved.

“Everyone in the cabin was given the option to leave and the flight did not depart until everyone confirmed that they were happy to continue.”

The Sun Online has contacted all Busta Rhymes representatives for comments.
