R&B Singer Bobby Brown Removed From JetBlue Flight

R&B Singer Bobby Brown Removed From JetBlue Flight

A recent incident on a JetBlue flight from Los Angeles to Boston ended with celebrity Bobby Brown being removed from a flight he was boarded on, forcing other passengers to be deplaned and the police to be called; it’s unknown if the police arrested Brown at the scene or if he was free to leave the airport.

Earlier this week, singer-songwriter Bobby Brown was removed from a JetBlue flight he’d boarded to go from Los Angeles to Boston for a family member’s funeral. Sources from the flight told TMZ that Brown was in first-class when there was an incident of some kind prior to takeoff. Everyone on the plane had to get off, and the police were called to discuss with Brown, who was kept at the door to the plane.

Brown ended up getting into an argument with the police. Four of them were there and were able to calm him down.

Ultimately Brown was removed from the flight, which was delayed an hour; sources, though, tell TMZ he shouldn’t have been removed, as he wasn’t drunk, disruptive, or interfering with the flight’s crew.

A JetBlue spokesperson confirmed the incident, saying Brown was “removed from the aircraft prior to departure after crewmembers observed indications of intoxication,” TMZ reported. “The decision to remove a customer from a flight is not taken lightly. In this instance, the customer was offered a seat on a later flight. The customer declined and was issued a refund.”

So far, Brown’s representatives have not commented on the incident.

    Yes, JetBlue has “Mint” class on transcon flights. SeatGuru shows mostly negative reviews, but everywhere else I have heard mostly glowing reviews. As for Bobby Brown, he is a wife-beating low-life who always gravitates toward trouble. In 50+ years of flying, I have never been removed from plane. It seems quite probable that BB deserved to be removed.

    Bobby Brown is a train wreck. Don’t believe me? See the film “Whitney” & you will know what I mean. JB should impose a lifetime travel ban.

    I would rather be seated next to an emotional support wolverine with rabies than Bobby Brown or any rap / hip hop “artist.”

    It seems one of them is creating a disturbance that ruins everyone else’s flight about once a week.
