Jet carrying Friends’ stars Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox makes emergency landing

  • Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox was reportedly forced to make an emergency landing on Friday
  • The Friends co-stars were boarding a flight headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

LONDON: A private jet carrying actresses Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox was reportedly forced to make an emergency landing on Friday, according to TMZ.

The Friends co-stars were boarding a flight headed to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico when their plane circled back and landed at an airport in Ontario, California after a wheel apparently fell off during take-off.

Sky News quoted a Federal Aviation Administration spokesman as saying: “A Gulfstream G4, tail number N729TY, lost a wheel or tire while departing from LAX.

The plane spent a few hours circling above the airport to burn its fuel to avoid the dangers of landing with a full tank.

It then landed safely after 2 p.m. before Aniston and Cox boarded another flight to Mexico.

Aladdin’s Naomi Scott walks the (magic) carpet in Los Angeles

DUBAI: British-Indian “Aladdin” actress Naomi Scott strutted down the orange carpet at the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night, while Lebanese teenage singing sensation Lynn Al-Hayek was voted the “Favorite Arab Music Artist” by her fans.

This year’s kid-friendly show was hosted by US-Palestinian producer and social media star DJ Khaled and saw the stars of the upcoming live-action version of Disney’s “Aladdin” — Will Smith, Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott — hit the orange carpet before they floated down onto the stage on a platform made to look like Aladdin’s magic carpet.  

Before taking to the stage, Scott walked the carpet in a soda-orange, feathered coat with a silvery, metallic sweatshirt underneath. She finished off the fun look with black drainpipe trousers and shiny boots.

The annual award show is famous for dousing celebrity attendees with green slime, much to the delight of the children in the audience. This year, Hollywood’s Chris Pratt, Josh Peck and Adam Sandler were soaked from head to toe and the show culminated with DJ Khaled blanketing both himself and the crowd in green goo.

There was no shortage of star power at the event, with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Janelle Monáe, Bebe Rexha and YouTube sensation Lilly Singh spotted in the audience.

Two Arab stars even made it into the list of winners — teenage singer Lynn Al-Hayek, who won The Voice Kids in 2016, and internet blogger Noor Stars took home awards for Favorite Arab Music Artist and Favorite Arab Internet Star respectively.

Hip-hop trio Migos performed their hits “Walk It Talk It” and “Stir Fry,” along with rising single “Pure Water,” accompanied by DJ Durel before adrenaline-packed teenage YouTube star JoJo Siwa forced DJ Khaled to don one of her signature hair bows after he lost a dance battle.
