Dave Chappelle Freak Out Forces Plane To Land Early

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True


It seems like Dave Chappelle still has a case of the crazies!

During a flight on a private jet headed to Ohio from New Jersey, the comedian "freaked out" and became unruly by refusing to put his seatbelt on and then repeatedly walked into the cockpit, asking how much longer the flight would be. At one point, he even grabbed the pilot's arms!

Sources say that the pilot decided to divert the plane to Pittsburgh after deeming Chappelle a "safety risk."

Once the plane landed, Chappelle checked into a nearby hotel, but became anxious and kept telling the hotel employees that he needed to rent a car to drive back to Ohio, but he couldn't remember where he lived.

The employees say they saw him wandering out of the hotel early Saturday morning.

A representative claims that Chappelle was having stomach problems and needed to use a proper bathroom, stating that the plane's facilities were "not the kind he needed."


We understand that airplane bathrooms are not the greatest, but to disrupt the pilot while he's FLYING??? Unreal!

Maybe Dave needs to go on a "hiatus" again.

    Wow…you are so late with all your "news." You used to beat everyone else to the punch but now, YOU scooping other sites?! Lame!

    It is painfully obvious Chapelle has an anxiety disorder; the symptoms are classic: excessive worrying, restlessness, lack of concentration, irritability, muscular tension, distressed breathing, etc. As the anxiety grows, so do the symptoms, often until strong physical reactions are experienced and a panic attack develops - although that was not specifically mentioned. He needs some meds and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Of course, enough stiff drinks will help tremendously but drinking alcohol is only a short term solution. And tell these "representatives" that no one ever believes them, so stop bothering with the lies.

    Maybe you should go on "hiatus"

    I love him, but I think he is doing cocaine or crack. Hope he chnages, but doubt it….too bad.

    He sounds bipolar…

  9. 9

    I call bull***t on a lot of the details of this story. For one thing, no one can walk into a cockpit. Unless he was on a private jet, he'd never get close to the pilots while they were flying.

    man wtf Dave?!

    I'm glad I was not on that plane. He sounds like he was out of it. Hope it was just bad food and not bad medicine. He should have been taken to the hospital. JMO!

    welcome to T M (Z) but more than 24 hours ago. Mario, your illegal immigrant writers are slow!

  19. 19

    Dave Chapelle's ass is far too special to share a toilet seat with the rest of us grunts.

  20. 20

    He could be suffering from early dementia its sad not funny!!

  21. 21

    Re: Johnsonbrewster – He does have issues, but it's not with drugs as so many assume. I agree with you - I have anxiety disorder, but not to this extent.
    He's a very religious family man, not a drug addict, people!

  22. 22

    Re: The straight one – lol i agree. Go on hiatus perez! you fat ugly fuck

  23. 23

    Something is strange with this story…If he had been that much of a danger wouldn't he have been arrested at the airport ?

  24. ass says – reply to this


    Yet again Perez, you don't know the real story so why don't you just shut the fuck up.

  25. 25

    wow, that sucks, clearly something is really wrong with him…..i hope he is okay

    on a side note……i wish Perez would go on a hiatus

  26. 26

    Re: Johnsonbrewster – I agree with you. He clearly has some type of anxiety disorder. If these other people knew anything about him, they'd know he's a very religious family man who spends his time playing computer games, not snorting coke!

  27. 27

    he needs to go on another hiatus? He hasnt come off the first one yet…

  28. 28

    They should have arrested his crackhead a-ss

  29. 29

    Re: Be-Atch – I'm not being mean but that was funny your comment! I hope he does get some help. He is pretty funny!

    An old washed up black comedian goes bonkers. Um - I wonder what Bill Cosby is up lately?

    "The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It's dismissive. "I don't understand this person. So they're crazy." That's bullshit. These people are not crazy. They strong people. Maybe their environment is a little sick."

  32. 32

    It's really sad and tragic, this guy had the world by the balls and couldn't hang on. Such a talent… I hope he gets help.

  33. 33

    Dave Chappelle is a very intelligent man. He knows whats up. But the only reason he's like that is because hollywood made him that way. So shut the hell up perez.

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – He's a Blackman so You know how people discriminate. It couldn't be mental it has to be drugs. I know not cool

  41. 41

    Hey baby!! Lol:)

  42. 42

    Re: Johnsonbrewster – Oh, thanks so much DOCTOR for your professional opinion. I don't know how you think you can diagnose him by hearing this story?? I have suffered from anxiety for years and although I know there are different ways people can experience it I highly doubt that that is the only thing causing him to act this way. So stop talking like you know exactly what is going on. You make yourself look really stupid

  43. 43

    Clearly we don't know the whole story. Maybe there were some mother fucking snakes on the mother fucking plane.

  44. 44

    Re: ShaFeelinMii – I did read the comment! I just said I'm glad I was not on the plane. You don't need to correct me OK! Why don't you just enjoy your holiday I've been here for years and I do READ!


    Happy 4th!

  45. 45

    perez i don't belive this for one bit. stop posting crap other people want you to.

  46. @v@ says – reply to this


    Is he on something? Out of control, imo.

  47. 47

    It really sounds like he has Alzheimer's! One of my mom's friends has it and acts like that as well. :(

    I miss his show….
    Re: STFUalready – Yes! I agree.

    I have anxiety … and I can say from my experience that it's a little tough to deal with but I don't have it on an extreme level like this. It's hard to say this is anxiety, but I'm not sure how severe it can be. I would think I was having heart attacks and if I had caffeine my heart would race and I would have to take a long long walk so it could match up … things like that. I've been able to cope with it though, and I have some support with it. I always thought, "This can't be all in my head … my heart really feels like it's hurting and it might stop … what if the doctor's are wrong and I die young?" But I guess those are the cards I was dealt.

    Anyways, sorry about that, lol. What I was getting at was the fact that he didn't know where he lived. I'm not sure anxiety would have anything to do with knowing your whereabouts, let alone where you lived. Unless he has multiple houses and he wasn't sure where he was landing and they fluffed up the story a little. Not sure.

  50. 50

    Yeah. Two words: Dave Chapelle. I rest my case.

  51. 51

    Drugs are bad

    Very sad. Great talent not doing well. Drugs or mental illness? Get help!

  55. 55

    Re: foggy1 – he was on a private jet!

  56. 56

    Sounds like he is becoming delusional and having a panic attack due to lack of sleep, depression, could be drug use, or a number of things. Who knows what is up with him but i wish he was on my plane ride at some point. It would have been fun to watch. All of my plane rides have been SO boring.

  57. 57

    You people saying he has mental health issues are just buying the Hollywood spin. Like fish on a line. He may have had some pressures, but he has also been hooked on drugs for a while and has tried to get off them.

  58. 58

    Paranoid schizophrenia alongside bipolar manic depression.

  59. 59

    A case of the crazies? Fuck you, rimmer!

  60. 60

    It just sounds like a severe case of Panic attack/anxiety disorder, plus a touch of "mud-butt". He's still the funniest SOB on the planet, son!!!

  61. 61

    i like dave chappelle, always thought he was a very funny and talented. this however sounds like he was having a panic attack or something. i hope he is alright.

  62. 62

    You left out that he then tried to rent a car home, but couldn't remember where he lived. He's a loser crackhead.

  63. 63

    What a freak! Drugs. Crack probably.

  64. 64

    Serena Loves Mario says –

    He does have issues, but it's not with drugs as so many assume. I agree with you - I have anxiety disorder, but not to this extent.
    He's a very religious family man, not a drug addict, people!

    ^ How the hell do you know? Get real.

  65. 65

    how the hell was he able to walk into a cockpit…several times????

  66. 66

    poor thing. he was so funny and smart and unafraid of criticism. look at what has become of him…

  67. 67

    Coz he's an egomaniacle,drug dependent freak
    no suprise

  68. 68

    Re: Johnsonbrewster – so take drugs and fly your own fuckking plane!!!\Loser

  69. 69

    Re: hobbestheprince – My thought exactly. Anxiety can cause some issues, but doesn't cause memory loss that I'm aware of. Not to mention that a flight from NJ to Ohio is all of what?, an hour at best. If he couldn't last that long, there's something going on. Not to mention that if he had an anxiety disorder, his PR people would be quick to say so, not come up with some ludicrous "stomach issues" excuse. Either way, I say clean up your act and get your Chappelle show back on the air! I looooved that show.

    Re: foggy1 – It said he was on a private jet in the second sentence. Maybe you should actually read the details in the story before calling it bullshit. Dumb fuck.
