Pop star Chris Brown was aboard a private jet en route to the prestigious Met Gala in NYC when the craft was forced to land. According to TMZ, the cockpit filled with smoke several minutes after takeoff.
But sources tell us … roughly 7 to 8 minutes into the flight, everyone on board began to notice smoke filling the plane. One source told us, “It was A LOT of smoke … everywhere.”The pilot immediately turned the plane around and performed an emergency landing back at Burbank airport.
Brown was evidently undaunted by the mid-air drama and hopped another plane from Cali to New Jersey in hopes of making the event. While he missed the gala he did make an appearance at the PUNK: Chaos To Couture Costume Institute Gala after party at The Standard hotel (photo above).
Chris may have been eager to mingle since he has officially broken up with on-again-off-again girlfriend Rihanna. A cryptic tweet posted yesterday made it appear he is ready to move on:
“Sometime(s) loving someone is too much! So loving from a distance will help everyone grow! Be blessed. Live ya life!”
