Kate Moss had to be escorted off a flight by police officers at London Luton Airport Sunday due to "disruptive behavior," according to British low-cost airline easyJet.

Moss, who was returning from Turkey where she was a guest at actress/designer Sadie Frost's 50th birthday party, has not been charged with a crime, nor did easyJet lodge a formal complaint against her. In a statement, easyJet said it "does not tolerate disruptive behavior and will always report any incidents to the authorities."

But what disruptive behavior, possibly, could have gotten one of the world's most famous models kicked off an airplane? Did she pull a Depardieu and pee on the floor? Or perhaps a Conrad Hilton, calling all the plane's other passengers "peasants?" Nope. She called the pilot a "basic bitch." Which, compared to Kate Moss, might be true, but it's still not very nice.

According to the Daily Mail, which spoke with another passenger on the plane, Moss also pulled a bottle of vodka from her luggage after a flight attendant refused to serve her, an economical gesture in the spirit of easyJet's cheap, no-frills attitude. She also allegedly was speaking a little too loudly to the family next to her, but no one should know better than an airliner that the pressure change can create inner ear issues. Last but not least, and certainly most ghastly, Moss reportedly was playing hairdresser with a young girl seated nearby.

"She was not aggressive to anyone and was funny really, the easyJet crew was acting out of proportion," a fellow passenger named Emily said.
