Minka Kelly:

I Didn't Freak Out on Delta

9/7/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Minka Kelly claims she didn't freak out on an airplane earlier today ... and never called boyfriend Derek Jeter ... this according to her lawyer.

There's a report circulating that Minka had an epic meltdown on a flight from NY to LAX earlier today when she wasn't allowed to put her dog on her seat during takeoff.

According to the report, it took all seven flight attendants, a personal plea from the pilot ... and a phone call to boyfriend Derek Jeter to calm her down. 

But Kelly's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ ... Minka paid extra to bring her dog on board the flight.  There was never an issue on the L.A./New York trip.  But Singer says on the return trip, the flight attendant would not let Minka's dog in the first class cabin during takeoff and landing because of space issues.  Singer says Minka took her dog back to coach for takeoff and landing and spent the rest of the time with her pooch in first class.

Singer calls the freak-out story "ridiculous," adding she would have been kicked off the flight if she went nuts.  As for calling Jeter, Singer says it didn't happen -- she called her manager who booked the flight in an attempt to convince the flight attendant she had made accommodations for the dog in first class.

Flight Attendants are jerks about dogs on flights 95% of the time. Which I truly do not understand. A screaming child is way worse than a dog!!

Kelly didn’t think it would be a problem because Chewie the mutt whispered in her ear how much he loved her highness and that if the plane should self destruct while in the air he would be there to look longingly at her before whimpering to submission once the fireball would engulf them.

All pets (except service animals) must remain in their carrier the entire flight. Not just for takeoff and landing as stated on the show.

She is not baggage. Friday night star star. She is the perfect girlfriend. Very humble and they should have honored her request if she paid. you guys are stupid and not real Yankee fans.

Pissed off NO. 56, TOO bad, shes sounds like 5 year old and so going for the money if hes stupid enough to let her.
As for the one who mentioned Mariah the self obsorbed brat plus NUTS = no talented slut! ( who married the mogul) you're OFF the hook! The one who mentioned HUMBLE, LMAO.
And yeah she called Jeter or threated too, Lawyers lie. And thats ALL FOLKS!
AS for Jeter himself he dates trophys so what does that say about him. ( cover up?). The DOG is the only part of this story to care about being owned by a five year old Minka Kelly.
As for replying to this,I dont care.
