Cohen pressed her for more information, and she admitted he went to the airport in another incident. “He actually went to get on a flight to go to Los Angeles, but he never actually took the flight. He came to his senses and came home,” Sidora explained. “But yeah, this was a first for multiple days,” she clarified.
