Celebrity Apprentice's Aubrey O'Day Has Mental Health Issues?
A rep for Virgin America airlines tells TMZ ... the "Celebrity Apprentice" star was cleared to bring her 2 pets into the 1st class section of a flight this week ... because they are registered as "Emotional Support Animals."
So how does one get emotional support animal clearance? Ya gotta have a doctor write a letter ... stating you have mental issues.
According to the Virgin America website, the airline requires the passenger to produce a letter from a licensed mental health professional which substantiates the guest's disability-related need for the animal to accompany them in the aircraft cabin.
V.A. claims the letter must state that the passenger "has a mental health-related disability" ... and that having the animal accompany the passenger is necessary for his or her mental health.
The nature of O'Day's mental health issue is unclear. We called the starlet for comment.
