Steven Slater Story: Fuzzy Wuzzy

8/13/2010 1:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steven Slater may have made up the whole story about a passenger attacking him on the JetBlue flight ... this according to sources involved in the investigation.

Steven Slater Story

Sources are telling us investigators still have not identified the elusive female passenger who allegedly went off on Slater ... curious to say the least. 

We're told the airline and Port Authority investigators are not at all convinced the incident ever occurred.  As one source connected with the investigation put it, "Crazier things have happened."

One source familiar with the situation tells TMZ investigators think some of Slater's story just doesn't track.  

Slater's lawyer could not be reached for comment.

Of course this never happened. He came on the flight in a pissy mood. Probably got beat up at some bar the night before. Was rude the entire flight. Then decided he was going to make a flamboyant exit from his job.

If JB allows him to continue to work, he definitely won't be in the air. The liability would be too great. What if this mentally unstable person pops a door at 35K feet. I predict no other carriers will want him on their planes either. Not even as a passenger. Would you want to have him on your plane? He goes on the passenger no fly list.

Are you sure?    

Got to love TMZ milking the story saying he's a hero. The next moment your calling him a fraud so you can milk it some more! Never understood how this was a story you would cover anyway!

Called BS on this early on. Had anyone assaulted him on the plane they would have been in handcuffs at the end of the jetway. No witnesses speaking out. No one "telling the story" of watching him get assaulted. Just another Perez Hilton wannabe attention-whore.

I noticed on the news when a reporter asked him twice if the booboo on his noggin was caused by the passenger with the lethal luggage, he wouldn't give a direct answer". He just made a heh, heh noise. Did anyone notice if he had the mark before he made his grand departure? I haven't heard if their were any witnesses to the encounter.

**********************************************************

The passengers said they noticed the bruise when they were baording the plane before it departed from its previous destination. That's why he couldn't answer thr question directly when asked. It didn't happen on the plane.

His "illness" is the real problem -- homosexuality is just a mental illness masquerading as a lifestyle.

And all you fools cheered HIM on!

But, do you think that woman would admit to being the jerk who started all this? If I were her I'd shut my mouth and pretend it never happened, especially after all of the press and positive reaction towards this guy.

And do you think Jet Blue would want his story to be true? Doesn't look good for them if it is......

A passneger was on tv last night claiming Slater arrived on the plane with the cut on his head, and even made a remark about it. There are so many cameras in airports now, it should be easy to see if this is true

I dont belive this publicity stunt drama queen either.
Have you seen his fb? He is asking people what could he work now since he became famous and a national hero. Just look at his face and you have it all. Discusting.

When did this man every tell the story? The only thing I have heard him say is Thank you for your support. All of the story seems to have come from other people.
