Elle Macpherson lost her temper with customs officers at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport in America as she kept waiting in line.
The Australian model, 59, reportedly attacked a staff member when she was waved through customs to be called back. Perth now Sunday.
WelleCo made no effort to hide its annoyance at being made to wait as everyone passed through customs.
Elle had to wait in line longer than she expected, so she vented her frustration to security and demanded answers.
“Why did you just say I could pass and then told you I had to come back?” Elle snapped.
“I only let five people through,” she continued. I was ahead of them and now I’m behind again.
The leggy beauty was carrying a $5,300 leopard-print Christian Dior handbag and dressed in luxurious Texas-style clothing as she proceeded with her engagement.
Elle’s outburst comes after she was slammed by her followers in September when her WelleCo brand failed to deliver on paid orders.
After she shared a glamorous selfie on her company’s Instagram account, she was attacked by disgruntled customers still waiting for their products.
Some flocked to the comments and claimed they had yet to receive orders they ordered up to a month ago and were ignored by customer service.
“Why do you have time to post on IG but not refund pending orders since September 1st,” one person wrote.

Another said: “Please can someone reply to my email or DM because I have been charged for my subscription and have not received my product yet.”
‘Hey, I was trying to get my order! A third added: “No one responded to my email and customer service request.”
Another person suggested that Elle and WelleCo should “reconnect with advertising” until they have “enough exposure.”
WelleCo CEO Leighton Richards issued a statement to address the issue and ease customers’ concerns by blaming “volume upscaling” for the missing orders.
