Flying back from Brazil to LA, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian ran into a bit of trouble during their connection at JFK. After landing from Rio, the celebrity couple passed through customs and then were escorted by an American Airlines’ employee to their next flight, bypassing security checkpoints entirely.

The TSA quickly realized the security breach and had no choice but to force Kanye and Kim off the plane and onto a private area of the jetway where they were screened privately.

“An airline employee escorted the two travelers through a non-public area in order to provide expedited access to their domestic flight,” a TSA spokesman said.

“In doing so, the airline employee violated security protocols by permitting the travelers to bypass 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.”

The plane was delayed for about an hour before the couple were able to once again board and take off the runway.
