Ludacris

Leaves Without Daughter

Epic Fight with Delta

Ludacris Leaves Daughter Airport

Ludacris landed in Atlanta Monday morning and left one item at the airport ... his 13-year-old daughter ... but Luda says Delta royally screwed up.
 
Sources tell TMZ ... the two were flying together from LAX to Atlanta, where his daughter Karma was going to catch a connecting flight to NYC solo. Turns out there was a 4-hour layover. Ludacris left his daughter in the first class lounge.

The problem ... Luda's daughter is not allowed to fly without an adult, because she's under 15, so Delta would not let her on the flight.  

We're told Delta called Ludacris and informed him the airline would provide adult supervision if he paid a $100 fee, but the rapper refused. So he came back to the airport, picked up his daughter and they went home.

A rep for Ludacris tells TMZ ... Luda booked the flight himself -- a first class ticket -- and was told there would only be a 1 1/2 hour layover. Luda claims he was told when he bought the ticket the only requirement was that an adult needed to be present in NYC when the plane landed -- Karma's mom.

Luda was shocked and angry when Delta changed the rules.

Just read the story. Good for him. That's BS. I have kids and when they were young they flew alone. Even though he could easily afford it I am happy he stood on principal. I would've paid because I'm a sucker

I'm not sure if there was a rule change. I had to pay a $100 unaccompanied minor charge for my daughter. A member of the flight crew is assigned to keep an eye on your child and an agent escorts your child to the parent when they land. Perhaps he felt that he shouldn't have to pay the fee because his daughter was flying first class.

They did not "change" the rules. My nephew when he was younger flew w many airlines all fees are $100.00 to have a flight attendant escort anyone under the age of 15 cheap ass!

When rappers have daughters I always wonder if they call them their little bitches or hoes... or if they suddenly realize how wrong it is to talk like that about women.

Y'all is a bunch of haters I swear. Why y'all calling him cheap?? He paid more money to get another flight to come back to get her. Delta probably told him the wrong information. This is my last comment TMZ smh

It seems $100 means more to Luda then to me these days, I am feeling pretty good about myself after reading this.
