Original story:

A plane carrying a popular singer is circling around the Hudson Valley as it prepares to make an emergency landing with two blown out tires.

Two tires blew off during takeoff when a plane with 16 passengers left this morning from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey heading to London.

TMZ is reporting that Post Malone is one of the 16 passengers on board. Other members of his team are also on board.

TMZ obtained air traffic audio, where the pilot says they lost a tire and asks for permission to circle above. The pilot added there are 16 people on board the plane.

The pilot was told to continue flying to Massachusetts to burn more fuel for a possible safer crash landing.
