MANILA, Philippines – Actress Melissa Mendez was recently offloaded from a flight to Mindanao on Friday, March 20, according to a series of Instagram posts from model and Philippine rugby team member Andrew Wolff.

According to Wolff’s story, he and a friend were aboard a Cebu Pacific flight to Mindanao. However, Filipina actress Melissa Mendez, who according to Wolff “smelled like a beer brewery,” sat in the seats reserved for Wolff and his friend and refused to leave, saying that she was a famous star from before. 

He detailed the entire story on his Instagram account, along with 2 videos from the incident: 


“I’ve seen some crazy things in my life. I regularly travel on planes for work, but this has got to be probably one of the most ridiculous things that I have experienced.

“A certain Filipina actress, past her prime may I add, decided to use our reserved seats on the plane. After being asked to move by flight attendants, the captain and even ground security she agreed to go to her seat (after 30mins of cursing).

“Kept claiming she was some sikat na star dati (famous star from way back) with initials M.M. She smelled like a beer brewery, you just knew something was gonna happen….

“Anyway, half way to our destination to talk to our programmer in Mindanao, this “actress” decided to curse continually at my friend. She was given 2 warning cards by flight attendants, but didn’t stop. She punched my friend and the flight attendants and had to be restrained. The captain announced: “Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologize, but we have to go back to Manila due to one unruly passenger,” he wrote.

In the second video, he captured a scene between the captain of the flight and Mendez:


“Captain: “Hindi na, bababa ka na, hindi ka puwedeng sumakay, nasakatan mo pati flight stewardess ko,” #CebuPacific #NagwawalangActress #OffLoad #Drama”

(Captain: No, you have to get off, you’re not allowed on this flight anymore, you also hurt my flight stewardess.)
