Chris Brown Responds To High Flying Rumors
An anonymous source told Us Weekly that the singer 'blew smoke at a flight attendant and said, 'I paid $60,000 for this jet, so I own it and everyone inside.'"
Brown allegedly also insulted another flight attendant, saying, "I like to have the help be people I'd actually like to f-k.'"But Brown's representatives say this story is false, releasing a statement to Us which paints a very different picture of the interaction.
"Chris was smoking on the plane prior to takeoff as was a companion of his. The pilot explained it was a non-smoking flight so Chris immediately extinguished his cigarette," the statement read. "His companion did as well but in a manner which angered the pilot who then said he would not fly the plane until this person was removed."
The statement goes on to say that Brown asked his tour manager if they could replace the pilot. "In the end, his companion was removed and the plane departed," with the same original pilot.
The statement also makes clear there was only one flight attendant on board the flight, not two and "Chris was never rude to her." His reps also wanted to clarify that Brown did not actually pay for the plane "the music label paid."
