Singer Jason Derulo is outraged at American Airlines, saying he was disrespected, cussed out by his pilot and confronted by 15 cops after a heated incident at Miami International Airport.
Jason says he and his crew of 8 arrived at the airport for a flight to L.A. yesterday when they tried checking nearly 20 bags. He says he's a preferred flying member and almost always flies American, but an employee was rude and said he couldn't check his bags.
Apparently Jason and his crew arrived too late to check the bags, so a member of his team stayed behind and tried checking the bags on a later flight.
When Jason and his crew were on the plane and it had been pulled away from the gate, his cellphone rang and the guy he left with the bags said American Airlines wanted to charge him $6,000 for excess luggage.Jason was mad and demanded that the plane go back to the gate so he could get off.
He says the pilot went nuts on him, and the cops were waiting as he got off.
He said if he wasn't Jason Derulo and instead just a random black guy, he'd be in jail.A source at American Airlines said the their most elite customers receive 3 free checked bags. However, Jason’s one crew member tried to check 19 bags and that’s why they were charging him $6,000.
