Busta Rhymes ‘escorted off BA flight by police after air rage row over luggage’

Rapper Busta Rhymes was allegedly escorted off a British Airways flight after rowing with a couple.


Busta Rhymes was reportedly escorted off a British Airways flight when it landed in London after getting into a heated row about luggage with other first class passengers.


The rapper, 47, boarded a London-bound flight at JFK Airport on Monday evening.


According to reports, whilst embarking he became “agitated, aggressive and rude” towards a female passenger who had stored her luggage in the overhead locker above his seat.


Busta Rhymes, whose real name is Trevor George Smith Jr, started “ranting and raving, getting really angry and demanding to know why she had used his locker,” an eyewitness said.


“He told her to move her stuff immediately.”


The woman began crying forcing her husband to intervene, leading Rhymes to reportedly say “Let’s go homeboy.”


Before take-off, the British Airways captain went to the first class cabin and demanded assurances from those involved that there would be no further trouble.


Upon arrival in London the singer was escorted off the plane by waiting Metropolitan Police officers.


A BA spokesman said: “Our cabin crew and Captain reassured all the customers involved.


“All those in the cabin were given the option of moving away, and the flight did not depart until everyone confirmed that they were happy to continue.”
