Whitney Houston threw a “diva” tantrum by refusing to buckle up on a Delta flight in Atlanta yesterday. According to TMZ, Whitney pretty much flipped the bird to the flight attendant, when she asked the singer to fasten her seat belt before departure. When Houston ignored the request, another flight attendant stepped in and told Whit that if she didn’t comply with FAA rules she would have to deplane the flight.
Whitney’s rep said the singer “overreacted a little bit after missing an earlier flight but she’s still 100% sober and was on the way to Detroit for her first day of shooting a new movie.”
The star received drug and alcohol treatment earlier this year in a bid to clean up her life.
Whitney has landed a role in a remake of Sparkle, which focuses on three sisters who begin singing in a Harlem choir before finding fame in a girl group in the late 50s.
