Foxx Swears Off Flying With Celebrities After Diddy Thrillride

Actor Jamie Foxx has vowed never to board a plane with another celebrity after a near-death experience with pal Sean Combs last year (08).
The Ray star was heading to Las Vegas to celebrate his 41st birthday on board a private jet with Combs in December (08) - but, upon its descent to land, the aircraft nosedived and Foxx was convinced he would not survive a crash landing.
The pilot managed to regain control of the plane just in time - but the experience scared Foxx so much that he's determined never to fly with another famous pal.
He recalls, "I almost died. We almost crashed on the way to Vegas. And I knew something was wrong because Diddy was on his way to fly with me. That's a strike because that's two celebrities on a private jet, the only thing missing was some Buddy Holly music. And I'm thinking, this is too much, it's December 13th, it's my birthday.
"We get on the private jet, and before we flew, this girl tells me, 'Last time I flew I almost died.' (I was thinking), 'Don't you feel like we're gonna be on E! True Hollywood Stories right now?'
"So we're on the plane and Diddy's doing his thing, and then the plane went (wobbled) and then you gotta hold on a minute, like, 'Oh s**t'. But you could see the trees and then the plane careens forward and I can see the ground through the pilots' window. and I thought, 'OK...'
"It careens back and I turn to my man and say, 'We're not gonna make it'. And then finally, the pilot makes it, then we popped champagne."
