UPDATE: The plane has landed safely at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, NY.
After his big win at the MTV VMAs, rapper Post Malone is facing a frightening situation.
A private plane, carrying 16 passengers including Malone, blew out two tires after takeoff in New Jersey.
TMZ reports the plane is trying to burn fuel while circling a New York airport before attempting an emergency landing.
The plane was scheduled to travel to England, where he’ll be performing on Friday.
Hours before he boarded the private jet, Malone was seen partying it up at his own VMAs after party at Avenue in NYC, attended by G-Eazy, French Montana, and Shawn Mendes.
At the show, he took home the award for “Song of the Year.” He told the audience, “You go to bed and you dream about maybe winning and then whenever you get up here you don’t remember what the hell to say. Thank you so much. Thank you to my family, thank you to my crew — everybody that was a part of the song. Thank you everybody for listening. Honestly, in a hundred million years I would never expect to do this ever, so this is sick. So thank you so much, guys, thank you so much.”
