Elton John appeared to have experienced a rough ride as his private jet landed at Sydney airport on Monday.
The hitmaker, 72, seemed angered as he was seen, in a video clip, hurling his Gucci designer bag out of the plane and down the stairs as he emerged from the jet and got into a people carrier vehicle to be driven off the runway.
One of Sir Elton’s staff appeared to catch the expensive weekend bag as it came hurtling through the air.
The British star, who is currently touring on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, shaded his eyes with coloured glasses and was dressed for the trip in a bright tracksuit.
It comes after he launched into an expletive rant on stage at Perth’s HBF Park Stadium on Saturday night.
The Your Song musician branded two security guards “c***s” and “turds” and told them to “f*** off” when he saw them removing a woman from the venue.
Elton can be heard shouting in footage, shared on micro-blogging site Twitter : “Hey, you two security guards with the girl, f*** off!
“Let her up here immediately… come on, you c***s. Morons, both of you, morons.
“You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone you turds.”
The audience seemed to support his sweary outburst as it was met with cheers and clapping.
