Singer/songwriter James Blunt has reportedly fallen foul of the French air police after illegally redirecting his helicopter to an A-list party.
The You're Beautiful star allegedly angered air traffic controllers by switching course mid-flight towards Nice, according to British newspaper the Daily Star.
A source says, "James was heading for Nice, where he was due to meet some friends, then changed his mind.
"He told his pilot he wanted to go in a different direction, and the guy seemed quite happy to go along with it.
"But moments later over the radio there were loud, angry French voices threatening legal action. The pilot... translated the whole conversation to James - who was very humble about the whole thing. He had no idea they were breaking the law by changing course.
"So in the end he went to Nice to meet his pals - instead of the plush party."
