Video footage showed Tara Reid being removed from a Delta flight for allegedly causing a 'disturbance'
Tara Reid was removed from a Delta flight after she allegedly caused a 'disturbance' while she onboard on Monday. A flight attendant can be seen requesting Tara to leave and get off the airline in a video obtained by TMZ.
42-year-old Reid could be seen in a black coat, a red beanie, and carrying her dog on her arm. As reported by People, a spokesman for Delta Ashton Kang said in a statement that the Delta flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York City "returned to the gate, prior to takeoff, due to a customer disturbance on board. Delta apologizes to the remaining customers for the inconvenience and appreciates their patience as the situation was resolved. The flight re-departed for New York following a short delay."
In the video, a flight attendant is seen talking to a passenger and shares that he can help pick up the passenger's belongings for them. Eventually, Reid is seen getting up and walking past the person who was filming the incident.
Tara was recently in the news when she was seen slurring her speech and also squinting heavily while she was live on Today's show 'Extra.' Post the interview, Reid released a statement in which she addressed the concerns over her health. "I’d like to thank my fans from the depths of my soul for their continued support, which has made this Sharknado my most successful one yet," she wrote.
"We worked harder than ever on this film and also the promotion of the film. While it’s unfortunate to see some of the recent negative press following a successful week of promoting and supporting the film, I’m happy to know that my fans continue to stand by me — this is for them!" she added.
"I’m also grateful to have been able to share this moment with my mom, who walked the red carpet with me on Sunday. She has been struggling with her health and to have her at my side, for possibly the last time, was so incredibly fulfilling. I am in great spirits and health and I look forward to my future projects and what’s in store for me next," she continued.
