Los Angeles - Chris Brown's private jet was forced to make an emergency landing early on Monday.

The Fine China singer - who recently confirmed his split from on/off girlfriend Rihanna - was involved in a terrifying incident when the plane in which he was travelling filled with smoke shortly after taking off from Burbank airport in California.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the 24-year-old singer's Gulfstream 3 jet left Burbank for Teterboro, New Jersey so he could attend the Met Gala in Manhattan on Monday.

Everyone on board began to notice smoke filling the plane roughly seven to eight minutes into the flight.

Too late to attend the Met Gala

The insider said: "It was a lot of smoke... everywhere."

The pilot immediately turned the jet around and made an emergency landing back at Burbank airport.

Sources praised the pilot for staying calm despite his passengers being scared.

Chris boarded another plane just an hour later and was too late to attend the Met Gala but was spotted smiling as he arrived at the after-party.

The singer recently declared he wants to see "as many girls as possible" after confirming his split from the 25-year-old Stay singer - who he is still on probation for beating in 2009 - last week.

He said: "I'm going to do it solo, at the end of the day, she's already doing her thing, she's on the road ... there's always going to be love, but I'm just going to do me. I'm a grown man."
