- Tara Reid was reportedly removed from a cross-country Delta flight on Monday following a seat dispute.

Actress Tara Reid made headlines on Monday after TMZ published a video of the “Sharknado” star seemingly being removed from a flight after allegedly causing a disturbance on board.
According to the report, Reid had boarded Delta Flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, and shortly before takeoff, began complaining that she was given the wrong seat assignment and didn’t receive a pillow.
Witnesses claimed that flight attendants attempted to diffuse the situation, but the plane’s pilot reportedly announced they’d be returning to the gate due to a “customer service” issue.
In the video, a flight attendant can be seen asking someone about their overhead luggage, telling the passenger, “We’ll carry all your things for you and meet you out here with the captain.” The attendant then asked about overhead luggage, and Reid can be seen making her way towards the back of the plane with her dog in tow.
The report alleges that the “American Pie” star was unhappy about her seat placement and that the passenger in front of her had reclined her seat, and the incident caused a minor delay.
Reid reportedly booked an alternate flight after her removal
Michael Thomas, a spokesperson for Delta, told INSIDER, “Delta flight 613 from Los Angeles to New York JFK-International returned to the gate, prior to takeoff, due to a customer disturbance on board. Delta apologizes to the remaining customers for the inconvenience and appreciates their patience as the situation was resolved. The flight [departed] for New York Monday following a short delay,” adding that Reid was “[accommodated] on an alternate flight.”
INSIDER reached out to a representative for Reid but did not receive an immediate response.
