LOS ANGELES (UPI) – Singer Jason Derulo and his entourage were escorted off a Southwest Airlines flight Saturday after a verbal altercation.

According to reports, Derulo asked for an escort to help him and his bodyguards move through the airport faster but was refused. He was traveling from Reno, Nev., to Los Angeles to perform later that night.

The “Want To Want Me” singer was reportedly allowed on the flight alone, without his group. TMZ reports Derulo’s team boarded the plane anyway, resulting in a verbal altercation with an airline employee and their being escorted off by police.
