Diana Ross spent the weekend in New Orleans because she was booked to perform at the Jazz Fest.

The iconic singer says she was treated like “royalty” in NOLA, but it was a different story when she arrived at the airport.

She made it clear that she didn’t have any direct issues with the Airlines, which many public figures have spoken out on in the past. But it was the security agency that made her uncomfortable.


TSA has released a statement regarding Diana’s uncomfortable pat-down. The agency says, “TSA is committed to ensuring all travelers are treated with respect and courtesy. TSA is aware of concerns presented by Diana Ross about her screening experience at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this morning.”

They continued … “Initial review of CCTV indicates that the officers involved with Ms. Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols, however, TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms. Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns.”
