What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done on a plane? Have you smuggled on extra ounces of shampoo? Have you boarded before your assigned row was called? Have you used a carry-on that’s too large or failed to return your seat to the full upright position? Probably. What about this one? Have you repeatedly harassed a flight attendant and smoked so much marijuana on a private plane that the pilots were forced to wear gas masked so they wouldn’t fail their next drug tests? Justin Bieber has apparently done that last one.

Remember when the singer and his entourage were detained for five hours at a New Jersey airport before the Super Bowl? The unexpected delay was initially chalked up to “weed smell”, but a whole host of backstory has just come out over at NBC News. In short, it’s almost too crazy to be believed.

The official report of the incident claims Bieber and his entourage of about ten, including his father, boarded the plane in Canada, and the problems began almost immediately. Despite repeated warnings from the pilots, the Biebs and company allegedly harassed the flight attendant with such verbal persistence that the pilot was forced to order her to stay inside the cockpit. She later vowed never to work another flight with the pop star again. In addition, the pot smell from the back of the plane was reportedly so pungent that the crew could smell it while they were flying the plane. When calls to stop had no affect, they were allegedly forced to wear gas masks to make sure they didn’t fail future drug tests to keep their pilot licenses.

How does something like that happen? People are always fond of asking that question following a particularly bizarre incident involving a celebrity. Nine-times-out-of-ten, the answer is “very slowly”. Tiger Woods didn’t wake up and suddenly have a dozen or so mistresses. He slowly added them to the fold until the number was almost too comical to be believed. Jay Leno didn’t suddenly have an urge to buy more than one hundred cars. He added to his collection whenever he saw something he liked until they could no longer fit in his garage. And Justin Bieber, well, the Biebs didn’t just randomly decide to hotbox a plane against the pilot’s orders. He clearly has spent the past year pushing and pushing and pushing the envelope, inch by inch until the next inch was too shocking for the average person to believe.
