Legendary singer Diana Ross says she felt terrible after a pat-down by an airport agent. The 75-year-old singer claims she was violated by a Transportation Security Administration agent at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans airport.


The soul singer was travelling to the city to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.



According to her, she had an ‘incredible night’. However, her joy turned sour when the alleged incident happened. She admitted she wanted to cry over her treatment at the airport. She took to Twitter to share her ordeal.


“OK so, on one hand, I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport, I was treated like s**t,” the soul singer wrote.



She added:

“It’s not what was done but how. I am feeling violated – I still feel her hands between my legs, front and back (saying to me it’s her job,) WOW!! really mixed emotions I always like to see the good things but not feeling good right now.” She added that the security check “was over the top !! Makes me want to cry !!!”



Fans of the soul singer, Diana Ross also send their support to the singer. One writes: “I wish that hadn’t happened to you. Sending love…” Another adds: “So deeply sorry that it happened to you!”


Meanwhile, a TSA spokesperson has responded to Diana Ross’ claims in a statement obtained by People magazine.


They said:

“Initial review of CCTV indicates that the officers involved with Ms Ross’s screening correctly followed all protocols. However, TSA leadership will continue to investigate the matter further. We encourage Ms Ross to reach out to TSA so we can work with her directly to address her concerns.”


Hours after the allegation was posted on Twitter, Diana Ross shared a video of her performance. She also included the caption: “I’m feeling better, it took a minute.”
