Days after Cardi B headlined a superstar bill of artists at Chicago's United Center for WGCI's Big Jam on Saturday night, the rapper was forced to return to the Windy City early Monday (Nov. 26) when her private jet en route from Los Angeles to New York made an emergency landing in Chicago due to a sick passenger onboard.

According to TMZ, a private flight Bardi was on from LA had to make an emergency landing when one of the passengers -- reportedly not a member of Cardi B's crew -- required medical attention. "I'm stuck in Chicago," Cardi said on her Instagram stories (watch below). "We had to do an emergency landing in Chicago. Let me tell you something ... I'm not taking no more fucking jets. I don't give a fuck, bro. These type of shits don't happen on Delta."

On Saturday, however, the "Bodak Yellow" artist was happy to be in Chi-Town, making her grand entrance to the roar of the crowd wearing a glitzy Peter Pan-inspired lime-green dress. She also rocked freshly dyed green hair to complete the outfit. The 26-year-old powered through some trouble mid-performance, as she kicked off her bothersome heels during "Ring" and finished off her lively set barefoot.

Young Dolph, Tory Lanez and Kodak Black all hit the stage prior to Cardi and Lil Baby closed out the show.
