Tiffany Gomas has told DailyMail.com that her life has been ‘blown up,’ since her extraordinary rant last month landed her off an American Airlines flight and in the news.
Seen in these exclusive pictures for the first time since footage of the passenger accusing a ‘motherf***er’ at the back of the plane of being ‘not real,’ went viral, Gomas said: ‘My life has been blown up. It’s frightening. Things go viral and everything changes.’
The July 2 incident sparked safety concerns when Gomas, her Goyard bag under her arm, barreled to the front of the plane and told fellow passengers she was disembarking because the aircraft wasn’t safe.
The video showed a visibly shaken Gomas telling passengers: ‘I’m getting the f* off and there’s a reason…. I’m telling you right now that motherf*er back there is not real and you can sit on this plane, and you can die with them or not. I’m not going to.’
Speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com from her home in Dallas, a recalcitrant Gomas said: ‘No one knows anyone else’s story, and no one should judge. No one knows what it’s like.’
Dressed in a fitted white tank and black leggings, her long hair slicked back in a bun, the 38-year-old owner of Uppercut Marketing which promises its clients, ‘We make you look really really good,’ stood at the door of her $1.6million property and said she was consulting a lawyer.
She claimed: ‘They’re staking out my house. They’re staking out my neighbors. They’re going through my mail.’
And she stated: ‘So much of what’s out there is inaccurate,’ but when asked for specifics she declined to comment further.
Passengers on Flight 1009 from Dallas Fort Worth to Orlando that day were forced to deplane after a ‘distraught’ Gomas suggested the plane was not safe, forcing staff to rescreen the aircraft.
Gomas’s meltdown was apparently sparked by an argument with a relative with whom she was traveling and whom she accused of stealing her airpods.
‘The female then started claiming the aircraft was not safe and did not want the aircraft to leave due to her believing it would not make it to its destination,’ the police report states.
