“Friday Night Lights” actress Minka Kelly allegedly freaked out while boarding an airplane today because she wasn’t allowed to have her dog on the seat with her. There were tears. There was screaming. There was a phone call to her maybe-fiancé Derek Jeter to talk some sense into a barbarian flight staff. Why do we all of a sudden feel solidarity with JetBlue flight attendant Steven Slater?
Read Gawker’s tipster email with all the gory details about the freak-out after the jump …
“on delta flight 2863 from jfk to LAX right now and minka kelly caused such a f**king 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’re mid-flight right now and god knows how landing’s going to go. tough to be entitled.”
I would say “crazy dog lady,” but my crazy dog lady editor may not like that.
Of course, this is all “alleged.” We await a denial from Minka Kelly’s publicist about the freak-out when her plane lands. [Gawker]
