Jay-Z makes an announcement of the launch of Dream Chasers record label in joint venture with Roc Nation, at the Roc Nation headquarters on July 23, 2019, in New York.

A Jay-Z superfan was reportedly arrested when she evaded airport security in Chicago and tried to board a flight, all to try get a glimpse of her hero.

The 23-year-old, identified in the press as Yaazmina Payton, was reportedly arrested at O’Hare International Airport on Sunday (Nov. 8) after she ducked the ropes at a boarding gate for an American Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles.

When she was unable to produce a boarding pass or evidence or a ticket, she was arrested "without incident" and charged with felony criminal trespassing, according to the New York Post.

During a hearing Monday, Payton's legal reps said their client struggled with PTSD and anxiety disorder. The court ordered Payton to be released on $500 bail, and she was also banned from visiting the airport.

Hov has not commented on the incident.
