Whitney Houston Refuses to Buckle Her Seatbelt and Four Other In-Flight Freakouts

We all know Whitney Houston likes to keep it, um, reckless, and her latest flare-up is the direct product of the R&B siren's disregard for safety and basic public decorum.

The big to-do? Ms. Houston made a fuss on a Delta Flight from Atlanta to L.A. over the buckling of her seatbelt. Straight from the horse's mouth: Whitney "got diva" on her. The matter was only resolved when a flight attendant buckled Houston's belt for her.

But this millionaire hissy fit is only the beginning of Crossfade's list of ridiculous in-flight antics.
