Dizzee thrown off plane in a tizzy

DIVA: Dizzee Rascal allegedly flew into a rage and abused BA staff after his flight was grounded for more than an hour

UK RAPPER Dizzee Rascal could receive a lifetime ban from British Airways (BA) after allegedly abusing a stewardess.

The Dance Wiv Me singer, real name Dylan Kwabena Mills, is said to have flown into a rage after his flight was grounded on the runway for more than an hour.

A witness is quoted as saying: "Dizzee was getting very angry and it was taking so long to take off. Then he threw a tantrum with staff when assengers were told something was wrong."

The 25 year-old is said to have been escorted off the plane by cops, reports The Sun.

The Bonkers’s hitmaker, alongside his band members, had been en route Portugal to perform at the Optimus Alive Festival.

But following his alleged misdemeanour he had to miss the gig.

A spokesman on his behalf said it was the BA cabin crew who had behaved irresponsibly.

She said: "Unprofessional behaviour on behalf of one of the cabin crew led to a confrontation whereby mutual parties agreed that Dizzee leave the plane.

"Although British Airways offered to accommodate Dizzee on the next flight out he refused due to the unprofessional treatment he received from the airline."

The rapper later apologised to his fans explaining his absence.
