Whitney Houston

Flight Crew Threatens ...

Fasten Your Seatbelt, Or Else

Whitney Houston
isn't on drugs anymore ... she's just crazy -- and yesterday she almost got kicked off a Delta Airlines flight ... because she refused to buckle her seatbelt.

Multiple sources tell us ... Whitney boarded a flight in Atlanta Wednesday afternoon ... and when she settled into her seat, a crew member asked her to buckle up.

We're told Whitney refused and "got diva" on the crew member ... until another crew member came over and warned Houston that if she didn't buckle up, she would have to get off the plane.

Whitney eventually allowed one of the crew members to grab the buckle and fasten it for the singer -- and the plane was then cleared for takeoff.

Sources close to the singer tell us ... Whitney "overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she's still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie."

It's not right, but it's OK ...

Surreeeeee she's sober, cause ALL sober people make a spectacle over a seat belt. The bimbo is drugging again - the bizzare behavior proves it.

Dude    

Whitney, it is time to retire. You are boring us all. And when you find a nice retirement home, invite Cher to join you.

It just breaks my heart to see such a lovely, talented woman throw herself "UNDER THE BUS" every opportunity she gets. For the LOVE of GOD, I wish Whitney would "get a grip" and stop behaving like someone who doesn't "APPRECIATE" the "advantages" her celebrity status has enabled her to enjoy. Her celebrity status is probably what keep her from being thrown off the plane. Let me board a plane and throw a tantrum about not wanting to buckle my seat belts!!! The flight crew wouldn't have hesitated to have my "BLACK AZZ" escorted off the plane, PRONTO!!! I can even recall other celebrities not being allowed to board planes due to their outrageous tantrums. This time she was "lucky" but next time it may be a completely different story with another flight crew. She's not filling stadiums anymore which probably makes chartering a private jet somewhat out of her reach. There's no point in her clinging to the "diva" mentality. In the coming years, she's going to need the kindness of strangers more than she can imagine.

There's a problem here    

Take a note Beyonce. When Miss Whitney was pregnant everyone was saying that baby would be beautiful. Fact was that spawn looked just like it's daddy. Fail.

Who ever heard of buckling your seatbelt on a plane - what an imposition for Miss Houston.

These comments from you people are hilarious, you guys take everything so personal like she screamed and spanked your child after he/she was kicking her seat from behind her. I doubt this story is even true, considering she's been in Detroit the past few days filming a movie. Secondly, there's been no news of her attending a charity event, she did attend a youth summit this past weekend. Lastly, TMZ is not the most credible source seeing that the Prince story they reported a few months back was confirmed untrue. Apparently TMZ published that Prince barred Whitney from his future concert after she attended one of his concerts in the summer. Prince himself released a statement saying that she's welcomed at ANY of his future concerts.

Whitney was just a little confused. She normally flies above the clouds with no seatbelt.
