Busta Rhymes was hauled off a British Airways flight by police as it landed at London's Heathrow Airport after getting into a row with a passenger in first class.

The US rapper was escorted off the passenger jet after the heated argument with a fellow flyer shortly before take-off in New York.

The 47-year-old hip hop star is understood to have boarded the flight just before the doors closed carrying five bags – before angrily demanding to know: 'Who's got all their stuff in my locker?'

Witnesses to the altercation said Busta - real name Trevor George Smith Jr - became 'agitated, aggressive and rude' as he hurled insults at the married woman in her late 20s, from London, on the Monday evening flight from JFK Airport in the US.

He was met by police officers at the request of a passenger when the plane landed in London at 6.52am on Tuesday. 

Upon arrival in London the singer was escorted off the plane by waiting Metropolitan Police officers, but her wasn't arrested.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: 'Officers at Heathrow were requested by the airline of an inbound plane to Heathrow Airport from the US to attend following an alleged verbal altercation involving several passengers.

They boarded the plane once it had landed at approximately 6:52am on Tuesday 30 July and spoke to the parties involved. There were no reported injuries, and no offences disclosed. The passengers concerned then proceeded with their journeys.'

A BA spokesman added: 'Our cabin crew and Captain reassured all the customers involved.

'All those in the cabin were given the option of moving away, and the flight did not depart until everyone confirmed that they were happy to continue.'
