Legendary singer Diana Ross is claiming that a TSA agent assaulted her over the weekend. The singer was in New Orleans to perform at the ‘The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.’ The former ‘Supreme’ wanted to make things clear about what she says happened to her. She said the issues she had were not with Delta or the City of New Orleans, but specifically with a TSA agent. She said, “Ok so on one hand I’m treated like royalty in New Orleans and at the airport I was treated like *hit.” The singer there was no question, “I felt violated.”

Ross said, “The TSA went over the top, and made me feel like I wanted to cry. It’s not what was done but how, I’m feeling very violated. I still feel her hands between my legs front and back. The agent told me it was her job. Wow!! Really mixed emotions, I always like to see the good things, but not seeing anything good right now.” Hours later Ross was on stage in New Orleans, and Ross said, ‘it took a minute but performing always makes her feel better.”

A TSA rep said, “TSA is committed to ensuring all travelers are treated with respect and courtesy. TSA is aware of concerns raised by Diana Ross about her experience during screening at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport this morning.” They went on to say they take all concerns and complaints very seriously no matter who is making the claims. However upon review of the video tape at the screening area, they have determined the agent in question followed all protocol.” ;The TSA rep said that the matter is going to be investigated further, because Ms. Ross said that she felt violated and is discussing legal remedies with her team.’
