Conor McGregor surprised many when he reached out to Tiffany Gomas on Instagram after her infamous ‘Crazy Plane Lady’ episode. Gomas, a 38-year-old marketing professional from Texas, gained widespread attention when she was removed from an American Airlines flight on July 2.
During the incident, she accused another passenger of stealing her AirPods and made some abnormal statements, including declaring, “that motherf–ker is not real,” all captured in a now-viral video.
In a recent appearance on the “Pardon My Take” podcast on November 3, Gomas shared her unexpected interaction with McGregor. When asked about the “weirdest and best celebrity” who had contacted her, she revealed, “I mean Conor McGregor reached out. He sent me a DM.” She was quick to clarify, “He wasn’t trying to get in my pants or anything.”
Co-host Dan “Big Cat” Katz chimed in, suggesting that McGregor simply wanted to say hello. Gomas responded, “No. He wanted to know what I saw. But regardless, Conor McGregor follows me, like what the hell… It’s kinda wild.”
It appears McGregor’s interest in Gomas stems from the viral video of her plane meltdown, which led to her being dubbed the “crazy plane lady” in the public eye. Gomas later took full accountability for her actions in a video explanation, acknowledging that her behavior was “completely unacceptable.”
This intriguing revelation comes shortly after the news that McGregor will not face criminal charges related to allegations of incident that occurred in a bathroom during the NBA Finals in Miami on June 9. Prosecutors cited “insufficient evidence” to substantiate allegations, and McGregor’s attorney expressed satisfaction with the outcome.
Despite the legal issues, McGregor’s life continues, including his expanding family, as he recently announced that he and his fiancée Dee Devlin are expecting their fourth child together. McGregor had disclosed this exciting news during an appearance on “Live With Kelly and Mark.”
