Mayim Bialik’s diva meltdown at the airport over the weekend "isn’t surprising" to people who know the former child star, a source revealed to

The actress' renewed Big Bang fame has made her a "mini monster," said the insider, "especially when she travels. She’s super intelligent, but she’s also an entitled diva.”

As fans know, Bialik insisted she’s not a “prima donna” after she had a meltdown when a United Airlines allegedly “shut the gate in my face,” causing her to miss her connecting flight and take a later one.

The snitch went on to expose Bialik's diva-like antics in detail.

The star allegedly flipped out during the Broadcast Film Critics Association at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica a couple years back after she found someone sitting in her seat.

"Mayim was so nasty, screaming that it was her seat. Another famous rapper/actor was standing there with us and he had to tell Mayim to stop it," said the informant. "And he actually told her that she was being really rude!"

But that wasn't the only other "nightmare story" about the star, insisted the source.

"The rest of the cast is so nice and I know for a fact that some of them don’t like her and cover up for her behavior," the insider dished, referring to the rest of her BBT costars. "She can be really awful. I’m not alone, it’s out there."

Bialik complained about the airline on Sunday on Twitter.

“To the @UnitedAirlines flight attendant who shut the boarding gate in my face. I made my connecting flight in Houston,” she tweeted after the incident at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. “it was a tight squeeze but You said there were plenty of open seats. when you saw my carry on suitcase you said there was no room and shut the door in my face.”

Bialik explained that she “aggressively” ran through the airport and just barely made it to the gate for her connecting flight — before she was turned away.

When the agent told her her carry-on wouldn’t fit on board, Bialik tried to explain that she had a first-class ticket and that her bag could be stashed there.

“Random people think I’m a prima donna because as she shut the door I said ‘I have a first class seat!’ I didn’t mean I deserve it more, I meant can my suitcase sit in my first class seat and I’ll sit anywhere else?” Bialik wrote.

“And there were five other people from my flight standing there with me who she let on the plane,” Bialik continued. “Maybe she just doesn’t like The Big Bang Theory. They all had carry-on luggage too.”

“She didn’t even say she was sorry. I’m sorry I flew your airline,” Bialik wrote. “Thanks for booking me on a later flight. But right now she needs to remember we are all human.”
