Kim Kardashian, Kanye West held up by TSA leaving JFK

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West had a misunderstanding with Transportation Security Administration officials at JFK International Airport in New York on Tuesday, but apparently the whole thing wasn't their fault.

The reality TV starlet and her rapper boyfriend/baby daddy were on their way back from Rio de Janeiro, where they were attending Rio Carnival. They were trying to catch a connection from New York to Los Angeles when things went sideways: An airline greeter allowed them to skip a security checkpoint so they could quickly catch their flight, according to TMZ.

Once they were on the plane, a TSA agent took them right back off to go through security, ultimately delaying the flight by nearly an hour. Kardashian and West were cleared and allowed to reboard the flight. The agency said it was conducting an investigation.
