Stephen Amell removed from flight after alleged altercation with wife – Page Six
“Arrow” star Stephen Amell was removed from his flight after allegedly getting into an altercation with his wife, Page Six is told.
Amell, who was flying Delta from Austin to Los Angeles after attending the ATX Television Festival over the weekend, was removed after a flight attendant asked him multiple times to calm down as he allegedly screamed at Cassandra Jean Amell while appearing drunk.
We’re told an air marshal and three other flight attendants escorted him off the plane.
After the incident, Cassandra and her companions stayed on the flight and made their way to LA.
A spokesperson for the airline confirmed an incident occurred, telling Page Six in a statement, “Delta flight 966 on June 21 took a brief, eight minute departure delay after an unruly customer was deplaned from the aircraft prior to departure in Austin. The flight arrived ahead of schedule at Los Angeles International Airport.”
Amell issued a statement on Twitter Wednesday morning, telling fans he let his emotions “get the better” of him.
“My wife and I got into an argument Monday afternoon on a Delta flight from Austin to LA. I was asked to lower my voice and I did,” he tweeted. “Approximately 10 minutes later I was asked to leave the flight. And I did so immediately. I was not forcibly removed.
“I rebooked myself on a Southwest flight 2 hours later and traveled home without any further issue,” his statement continued. “I let my emotions get the better of me, end of story. Must be a slow news cycle.”
The “Heels” star made headlines in the fall after he claimed he had “no idea” where he contracted COVID-19, but sources told Page Six that he threw a birthday bash for his wife that same month — a fact he conveniently left out of his coronavirus tale.
“He hosted a … birthday party in Palm Springs,” said a source at the time, although the insider added that it’s not clear if that’s where Amell got it, if he had the disease during the party or if he got it after.
Amell, 40, and Cassandra tied the knot on Christmas Day 2012. They share 7-year-old daughter Maverick Alexandra Jean Amell.
