Tara Palmer-Tomkinson has revealed the real reason why she threw a mahoosive tantrum in Heathrow airport – and it is NOTHING to do with a first class lounge, thank you very much.
The socialite was caught on video ripping out her hair extensions in a rage as she shouted at police officers over the weekend, with it being said that it was all because she was denied first class access.
However, Tara has now come forward to explain the REAL reason why she got so upset – and apparently it’s all because mean people were laughing at her.
NOT COOL, GUYS.
Tara explained to The Sun: “I just wish I could turn back the clock. I have tried so hard this year to do well, and I have done well.
“I was on my own reading a magazine. I felt people behind me taking pictures.
“I could hear them all talking about me and laughing about me and I got upset. It’s nothing to do with the lounge, I swear on the Bible.”
And the best way to stop people laughing at you is DEFINITELY by causing a scene with three police officers and your hair extensions, obvz.
In the video, the 39-year-old can be seen arguing with coppers, getting increasingly irate before she is eventually arrested.
Asked why she reacted SO bloomin’ extremely, Tara shared: “I got upset with the man saying, ‘You are not fit to travel, you are crying’. I really lost my temper.
“I wasn’t drunk, there was no disorderly. I was cautioned, I saw a doctor, they were incredibly nice to me.
“It’s just that I suffer from anxiety. I find it hard to leave my home and airports are a big number for me. I would have been fine if I was with a friend.”
Earlier this year, Tara opened up about her anxiety on The Jeremy Kyle show, revealing that she is now a “recluse” and shuns public events.
She told Jezza: “I get terribly anxious going out, I’ve only been out three times this year. I don’t go out to public events. For the last two years I haven’t worked.
“I’ve seen a therapist every single week for the last nine, ten years of my life.”
Thankfully for Tara, despite being arrested she was only released with a caution and was able to make her flight to Switzerland the next day.
Hopefully she’ll be able to put this whole shebang behind her and get on with enjoying her birthday and Christmas.
