Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were investigated by TSA at JFK.
The couple was at the center of a TSA investigation following a major security violation at JFK yesterday. TSA later stated that Kim&Kanye are not to blame.
According to TMZ, K&K had taken a flight from Brazil to JFK on Tuesday, where the plan was to catch a connecting flight to Los Angeles.
The news website told in a report :
"Once they landed in NY, the couple met up with an airline greeter ... who, according to the TSA, allowed them to bypass a key security checkpoint to get them to their next flight as quickly as possible. "
"After Kim and Kanye took their seats on the L.A.-bound plane ... a TSA agent yanked them off the flight ... and made K&K go through another layer of security."
The plane was delayed for roughly an hour while the couple was screened by TSA agents.
The TSA later explained "An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight."
"In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to by-pass the TSA security checkpoint. TSA officials learned of the violation and conducted a private screening of the two passengers in the area of the jetway."
"The passengers were cleared to board their flight, which departed after a delay of approximately 50 minutes. TSA is actively investigating the incident."
