It Wasn’t Sex That Steven Slater and His Boyfriend Were Having When the Cops Showed Up


In the immediate aftermath of Steven Slater’s infamous JetBlue meltdown in August of last year, tabloid reports had him and his boyfriend, Ken Rochelle, engaging in a festive bout of sex as police arrived to their front door. But that wasn’t exactly the case. In New York’s profile of the AWOL attendant this week, Slater tells writer Michael Idov that Rochelle was actually praying when the NYPD turned up. Since he was doing it in his underwear, alone in the bedroom, a different story emerged. “Of course, they immediately put us where they always put the gays,” Slater explained. “In bed.” [NYM]
