(Scroll down for video) Celebrities are used to getting royal treatment, but this time it did not work out for celebrity lovebirds Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian, as they were pulled off a plane for a TSA security check.
West, and Kardashian, caused a plane full of passengers to wait almost an hour for takeoff at JFK airport, after an airline employee apparently allowed the two to bypass the security checkpoint, according to reports.
The stars, were running late for their American Airlines flight and they were led around a security checkpoint so they can quickly board the plane from New York to Los Angeles.
The stars arrived at JFK, on a flight from Rio de Janeiro. They were cleared by customs and went through the luggage area, when the airline employee escorted them through a restricted area, according to reports.
Airport officials soon learned of the special treatment of West. with Kardashian, and ordered them to be taken off from the plane. Then, the stars went through a pat down by TSA agents. The incident delayed the flight for almost an hour.
Rules require all airline passengers to pass through the TSA security check at the airport and stars have to play by the same rules as any other passenger.
