    TETERBORO, N.J. - A plane that blew two tires during takeoff at a small New Jersey airport was forced to make an emergency landing Tuesday afternoon.

    The Gulfstream IV jet was carrying 16 passengers when it left Teterboro Airport around 10:50 a.m. Tuesday.

    According to E! News and multiple reports, Post Malone was on the plane.

    Post Malone performed at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards Monday night in New York.

    The pilot soon realized what had happened and began circling the airport for about 30 minutes before the jet was diverted.

    The jet had been headed to London Luton Airport, in Luton, England.

    The plane was diverted to Stewart International airport in Orange County, New York, a Federal Aviation Administration official told ABC News.

    The plane was previously being diverted to Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport in Massachusetts.

    The plane made a successful emergency landing just before 4 p.m.

    Several members of the music community took to social media to express concern for Post Malone.

    Post Malone is scheduled to appear at 2018 Music Midtown Sept. 15 and 16 in Atlanta.
