David Chappelle: The Sky is the Limit
Look up in the sky. It's a bird... It's a plane... No it's David Chappelle losing his freaking mind. The former funnyman who was once rolling in the dough before he had a major mental meltdown and hightailed it out of Hollywood is apparently back to his old tricks again. According to TMZ, the comedian was on a private jet bound for Ohio last night when his plane had to be grounded because Chappelle was deemed a security risk. One source tells TMZ that Chappelle refused to put on his seatbelt and then kept going into the cockpit asking when they were going to land. The insider reveals that he even grabbed the pilot's arm. After the pilot grew concerned, he landed the plane in Pittsburgh. Chappelle then checked into the hotel and was going to drive home, only he couldn't remember where he lived. He was last spotted leaving the hotel early in the morning. Chapelle's rep maintains the rumors are a bunch of crap... literally. The rep says Chappelle was sick after eating something bad and the restroom on the plane was "not the kind he needed." That's because the kind he needed is likely in a state facility that can assist him with the issues he's got going on. Sounds like the 36-year-old had something bad... like maybe a batch of crack. When Chappelle walked away from his $50 million contract with Comedy Central in 2005, he was flanked by drug abuse rumors, which he denied. He disappeared for weeks and was later found in South Africa. Since then he's done little work. But the behavior is eerily similar to his previous antics, which are no laughing matter.
