In the same interview, Jason Derulo also opened up about his altercation with American Airlines. Last week, the "In My Head" singer posted on Instagram an accusation against American Airlines at Miami Airport on Feb. 8. According to Entertainment Tonight, the AA crew claimed that he and his entourage smelled of marijuana and were acting aggressively.
Derulo also reportedly wanted to bring in 19 pieces of luggage free of charge. He was told that he would have to pay $4,000 for the baggage fees. The police were called to remove Jason Derulo and his group from the plane. They were then rescheduled for a later flight. The music artist said that AA eventually apologized to him, but he still refuted the claims that he tried to check in 19 bags.
He also said that the airlines should have apologized publicly and clarified what really went on that day. In 2015, Jason Derulo had another unfortunate run-in at the airport. He was actually booted off a flight after getting into a fight with TSA agents.© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
