Whitney Houston Almost Booted From Flight

Whitney Houston may be out of the spotlight, but that doesn't mean she's any less of a diva. The R&B icon delayed a Delta Airlines flight yesterday when she refused to buckle her seat belt.

TMZ reports that Whitney boarded a plane in Atlanta Wednesday, but the flight almost didn't take off. Houston refused to comply when asked by a crew member to buckle up during the standard pre-flight procedures.

After being warned that she would be forced to leave the plane if she didn't tie her seat belt, Whitney didn't follow orders, but allowed a flight attendant to tie it for her. The plane was then cleared for takeoff.
