“Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” star Tommie Lee got kicked off a flight that was leaving Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the media has learned.
According to TMZ, liquor consumption was the culprit in getting the impetuous, explosive Lee booted off.
According to the entertainment publication, the incident went down Wednesday night in Atlanta, and according to witnesses, security and flight attendants approached Lee shortly before takeoff.
Lee maintained her peace during the 10-minute conversation and ultimately got off without a fight.
We’re told Lee had a wine glass in her hand when she boarded, and at least one witness says she was asked to leave it in the terminal. She didn’t and breezed onto the jet anyway until it became a thing.
The incident delayed flight 1949 to Miami for 34 minutes. A rep for Lee insists she was not drunk, and adds … “Tommie was kicked off for crying about a friend’s recent death which would be a weird move on the airline’s part.”
The airport security and the airline were contacted to find out the specifics of the altercation, but they did not return media inquiries.
At least this episode had a much more subdued ending as compared to several flights from other airlines.
Lee, a New Jersey native, instantly rose to stardom when she made her television debut on “LHHATL” last year. She has remained a memorable character because of her fiery personality, but also because of her striking looks.
With several business deals in the making, Lee plans to build an empire around her burgeoning brand with “LHHATL” as a vehicle to manifest her dreams. With her ex-lover Scrapp DeLeon behind bars, Lee, a single mother of two, is hard at work building her empire and needs no prince to complete her kingdom. Her “both-barrels-blazing” personality has cost her a few friendships but she keeps pushing on without apology.
