If Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are on your flight, it may get delayed. On Tuesday morning (February 12), the couple was returning from their well documented trip to Brazil and were making a connection in NYC’s JFK Airport with a flight to LAX. However, they bypassed a security checkpoint which led to some travel drama.
After the flight from Rio landed, KimYe was given an escort to their flight back home to Los Angeles. The New York Daily News reports that after they went through customs, an American Airlines employee ushered them past a screening area.
That was a big no no.
“An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight,” a TSA spokesman told the NY Daily News. “In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to bypass the TSA security checkpoint.”
After West and Kardashian were a seated, a TSA agent entered the plane and asked them to get off. They were then properly searched but not after delaying the flight’s departure by an hour or so.
The TSA has stated that Yeezy and his baby mother to be are not to blame for the incident. Also, the latter was recently spotted wearing braids (it’s a throwback pic). You care. Check out flicks of a weary looking KimYe arriving in LA, and her braids, in the gallery.
