Diva or Rightfully Distressed
The skies are really seeing some action these days. First the JetBlue/Steven Slater drama, and now, in the same (yet less hilarious) vein, Minka Kelly has reportedly had a diva licious breakdown on a Delta flight from JFK to LAX.
According to an anonymous text sent to Gawker:
delta flight 2863 from jfk to LAX right now and minka kelly caused such a (censored) scene about her dog not being able to be on seat w/ her that the pilot had to come out before we even left the gate. she called boyfriend Derek Jeter and handed phone to him to try and rationalize w/ the seven flight attendants it took to calm her down. screaming that it was inhumane to not have the dog out/with her for take off and landing. crying. tears. etc. holy jesus was it worth seeing. we mid flight right now and god knows how landing going to go. tough to be entitled. Singer calls the story stating that Kelly had paid to take her dog on into the first class cabin with her and then had not been allowed. Rather than calling Jeter, Kelly made a call to her manager to confirm the reservation, and, her dog back to coach for takeoff and landing and spent the rest of the time with her pooch in first class. she did not, in fact, freak out, then why did she consult her lawyer? Sounds fishy.
