Whitney Houston

Flight Crew Threatens ...

Fasten Your Seatbelt, Or Else

10/13/2011 5:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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 ...

agreed...she is not relevant, coherent, sober, stable, or talented.....hasn't been in years. just like many other dummies who enjoyed a little success early in life, took on the typical sense of entitlement and quickly proceeded to foolishly piss it all away.

To the people who need to point out errors: Do you REALLY think TMZ or anyone else is going to hire you for being a pain in the butt?? We can all see when there is a mistake but have the courtesy NOT to mention it...does it really matter???

Ahhhhh. Whacky whacky Whitney. "Crack is Whack" Have your forgotten that? Seems so... Back on the S*** again I see.
Stay away from the crack and gack. It's done you no good. It's ruined your voice. It's ruined your shape. It's ruined your looks and it's ruined your daughter (who now has her own habit) For Shame!

It annoys me when someone who has such musical talent as Whitney throws it all away with drugs and alcohol. It annoys me even more when these have beens are celebrated for their sobriety. Let's celebrate the ones who don't "choose" this lifestyle. I think it's a joke that every few years they amp her up to perform on the Grammys or AMA's and give her some lifetime achievement award. Go have Dialectical Behavioral Therapy will give you relief from your Borderline Personslity Disorder.

If I did that on a flight, I would be escorted off the plane. What if everyone was that difficult? People who cannot control their bad temperments, i.e. someone who thinks they are better than everyone else, should stay home or fly private charter. NO EXCEPTIONS for bad behavior.

So what else is new?

Jesse Jackson and crew have been doing this daily, for years. Scream and holla and demand an upgrade or free hotel stay claiming racism.

I used to travel on business w a whitney clone who was a govt employee. She would pull the same stunt on many trips and get a free upgrade, coach to 1st class or bigger car/ room etc. It was sad to see service employees have to cave in to this trash.

Every time you see a story like this, just close your eyes and picture her in the video of "I wanna dance with somebody." That was Whitney Houston. That was the person you wanted to know about. This is just the shell left by the drugs.
