Josh Duhamel and Fergie at the Billboard Women of the Year luncheon This just in: Josh Duhamel does not have an iPhone. The actor was booted off a plane at New York's La Guardia Airport on Thursday after he refused to stop texting and turn off his BlackBerry, according to reports.

A flight attendant asked the actor to turn off the device three separate times, sources told TMZ, and on the third time Duhamel allegedly laughed at his request. Back at the gate, two officers escorted the actor off the Kentucky-bound plane.

Duhamel had attended Billboard's Women of the Year luncheon event honoring his wife, Fergie, on Thursday.

A Duhamel rep confirmed to Gossip Cop that the "Transformers" star had indeed been texting, and that his actions caused the already-delayed plane to be turned around off the runway. "He's sorry," she said.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon," the third installment in that franchise, is set for a July 1 release.
