Chloe Mafia has claimed she was invited to drink champagne in the cockpit of a Kuwait Airways flight to New YorkChloe Mafia

X-Factor reject and former porn star Chloe Mafia has claimed she pushed buttons on the flight deck of a Kuwait Airlines plane after a "sleazy pilot" invited her and a Playboy model friend to party in the cockpit.

The 24-year-old, who was a contestant on Simon Cowell's talent show in 2010 before she was booted off, was flying from London to New York when the plane's captain broke protocol by inviting her to swill champagne and smoke cigarettes alongside him.

She claims he bragged about having sex with "half the stewardesses", begged to see her breasts and asked her to sit on his lap as she pressed buttons on the plane's flight deck.

The security breach happened as about 300 passengers sat unaware of what was happening.

Mafia, who is also known as Chloe Kahn, told the Daily Star Sunday: "The seatbelt signs had just gone off and a stewardess came and said the pilot wanted us to go to the cockpit.

"They locked the door and the captain introduced himself and said 'Hi, I'm the naughty pilot'. He said he lets sexy girls in the cockpit, even though he's not supposed to, because he 'made the rules'."

The pilot then smoked cigarettes and gave renditions of a bizarre series of songs including The Lion King's "Hakuna Matata" and Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart".

At one point the pilot, who according to Mafia was eager to see the results of her recent breast enhancement, asked if the girls had joined the Mile High club before proudly brandishing a tie pin with the words "Mile High" on it.

Luckily, she added, the co-pilot was not as interested in the high-altitude debauchery and kept control of the plane.

Kuwait Airways had not responded to the claims.
