Wale may have one of the top-selling albums in the country, but that doesn’t matter when it comes to rules of the skies.

The Washington D.C. rapper was kicked off a American Airlines flight to New York because he left his cell phone on. But Wale claims his mobile phone was off at the time and said he was having a “civil  conversation” with the pilot about the incident – until the police arrived Tuesday night.

A rep for American Airlines told the Washington Post said a flight from Atlanta to LaGuardia was diverted to Raleigh-Durham that night because of two disruptive passengers. Wale indicated that two passengers other than himself also got in trouble with his flight crew.

Wale did not end up detained since subsequent texts suggest he was busy making alternate plans the same night. He tweeted, “Where the party at in Raleigh tonight?”

Wale, who album The Gifted debuted No.1, was headed overseas, due to perform in Oslo Thursday night.
