Blac Chyna Denied Boarding By British Airways, Arrested for Drug Possession

This all went down at my home airport of Austin on Friday. And apparently Rob Kardashian had to drive to Texas and pick her up.

She was flying Los Angeles – Austin – London. Best I can figure that must have been the only way she could find any award availability?

Apparently she was drunk and belligerent on the LA – Austin flight. According to TMZ she was ‘fighting with the flight attendant and acting like a drunken fool’ screaming “y’all got no respect for me, I gotta tie my shoes, let me tie my yeazies.”

Chyna headed to her connecting gate on arrival but things didn’t end there. She called an airline employee a “nasty ass bitch,” and was taken away by the police.

It turns out that she was searched when she was arrested on the drunk and disorderly and police found “two small white pills with gold glittered flecks” in her sunglass case. She claimed not to know what the pills were, so they were tested and identified as “Methylenedioxy Methamphetamine, commonly known as ecstasy, MDMA and MDM.”

British Airlines refused to even board her due to her alleged intoxication status, police reporting that she smelled like alcohol prior to her arrest and that a British Airlines manager stated she was “verbally aggressive” towards him. Police say that when the model eventually returned to the airport bar to continue to drink, she caused another disturbance when the bartender refused to serve her the amount of alcohol she requested.

Rob Kardashian drove his Bentley from Los Angeles to Austin to pick her up.

Let’s back up a bit. If you’re like me you have no idea who Blac Chyna is. Fortunately, Wikipedia does.

Her real name is Angela Renee White. She used to go by ‘Cream’ “but later named herself “Blac Chyna” after she met a client at the strip club she worked at who called himself Black China because he was a black guy with Chinese looking eyes.”

She was the 2011 Model of the Year at the Urban Model Awards. A former stripper, she’s posed for Dimepiece and Straight Stuntin’ magazines. Wikipedia is no help on those. She has a clothing line and a brand of adhesive eyelashes. She has a child with rapper Tyga, whom she was with for three years, and currently dates Rob Kardashian.

Apparently Kardashian sister Kylie Jenner now dates Tyga. So there’s that.

Here’s Blac Chyna’s chicken noodle soup recipe.

  1. Tried to pull the do u no who I am, unfortunately, those who knew her were from her strip days and didn’t recognize her with her clothes on. Trying to extend her 15 minutes.

  2. My question is: Why did Rob Kardashian DRIVE to pick her up? Surely he (or she) could have afforded a one-way flight on another airline.

  3. I love it. I was wondering why also til I hit your wikipedia reference. You crack me up. Amazing how self absorbed so called “celebrities” are. Only their little world exists.

    This stuff would go by the wayside except in the rarified world of airline travel where the passengers and crews are subjected to this insanity up close and personal.

    You made my Groundhog Day.

  4. Your summary of who Blac Chyna is might just be my favorite thing I’ve ever read on this blog.

  5. Bringing Molly to London is like bringing cocaine to Bolivia. What was she thinking?

  6. @nsx – I think you’re thinking of China White, which would be a terrible name indeed, although it would be really amusing to see police wandering around looking for China White. Talk about rife with possible misunderstandings…

  7. @ John- because taking a flight is not a good idea if you have drugs secreted in random places. At least Rob is smarter than his girlfriend!

  8. Wow, what a fun story. Although if it was an award ticket she surely would have been flying LAX to LGA with the connection at JFK.

    Oh and don’t people have to know who you are to be a celebrity?

    PS: real celebrities should always fly on private jets to avoid being hassled like this by normal people.

  9. Wait, her name is actually Black Chyna? So if I call her by her first name, will she call me racist? She didn’t throw around the DYKWIA card?

  10. Gary. Don’t u know that posting this invites racists comments. Please leave that to tmz. You’re above this.
