Some people don’t know how to act on a plane.
From Alex Baldwin to Naomi Campbell to Ivana Trump, there’s been a long history of celebrities misbehaving on airplanes. The latest is Blac Chyna, the model and girlfriend of Rob Kardashian. On Friday, Jan. 29, Chyna — whose real name is Angela Renee White — was arrested after being kicked off a flight at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Austin, Texas.
According to Texas authorities, Chyna was charged with public intoxication and possession of a controlled substance. She was allegedly drunk and causing a disturbance on a commercial flight that was about to take off.
An official told People Magazine: “At 6:22pm Airport Officers were informed that there was an intoxicated female on a flight that was about to depart ABIA and she was causing a disturbance and would not be allowed to remain on the plane.”
The website Enstars.com reported that Chyna was “allegedly trying to fight a flight attendant and could barely speak while slurring her words.”
When the incident took place, Chyna was en route from Los Angeles to London. According to reports, the model was booked on a misdemeanor charge for public intoxication and a felony charge for possession of less than four grams of an unspecified controlled substance.
Chyna was released on bond on Saturday. According to TMZ, Rob Kardashian drove 19 hours in his Bentley to pick her up in Texas. Chyna’s relationship with Kardashian has been subject of much gossip; the model has a son with Tgya, who is dating Kardashian’s sister Kylie Jenner.
So why do celebrities keep misbehaving on planes? Celebrity psychologist Dr. Jenn Berman told Yahoo Travel: “Celebrities are surrounded by yes people and feel like the rules don’t apply to them and hate not being in control,” she explained. “On commercial airlines there are lots of rules and regulations for safety purposes and some of these big personalities don’t know how to handle that.”
