Diva Whitney Nearly Booted From Flight She apparently has a problem buckling her own seatbelt By Evann Gastaldo, Newser Staff Posted Oct 13, 2011 10:30 AM CDT 4 comments Comments In this Feb. 13, 2011 file photo, singer Whitney Houston performs at the pre-Grammy gala & salute to industry icons with Clive Davis honoring David Geffen in Beverly Hills, Calif. (AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill, file) (Newser) – Memo to Whitney Houston: You may be world-famous, but you still have to fasten your seatbelt while on a plane. The notorious diva nearly got herself booted from a Delta flight yesterday after a crew member asked her to buckle up before takeoff and she refused. Multiple sources tell TMZ that Houston wouldn’t comply even when another crew member came over and warned her she could get kicked off. Best part: She ultimately allowed a crew member to fasten her seatbelt for her. Click if you can’t get enough of celebrities behaving badly on airplanes.
