(Newser) – Barbra Streisand's beloved dog got a little rowdy Tuesday. As Streisand, 73, flew from New York to DC on Ron Perelman’s private jet, accompanied by her 12-year-old coton de tulear Samantha, a flight attendant allegedly tried to pet the pooch, Page Six reports. It did not go well: Samantha bit the flight attendant, who ultimately needed stitches. "This never happened before and Barbra apologized profusely to the flight attendant," a rep for the singer says. TMZ notes that said apology came "immediately" after the incident, and that Streisand apologized to Perelman as well. (Read more Barbra Streisand stories.)
