The couple, flying with their child, were traveling to Denpasar for a holiday at the popular Indonesian island when the woman allegedly used the thumb of her sleeping husband to unlock his phone, where she found evidence of his infidelity.
Sources aboard the plane claim the woman was intoxicated, and became incredibly disruptive.
Despite efforts from the crew to calm her down the pilot requested the Qatar airways flight divert to Chennai, India.
An official at the Central Industry Security Force told the Times of India that the flight deck asked Chennai for permission to divert due to an 'unruly passenger.'
'The woman and her husband, along with their child, were offloaded and the flight departed for Bali,' the official said.
The official added: 'The family spent the day at Chennai airport and was sent to Kuala Lumpur by a Batik Air flight for further travel to Doha.'
No police action was taken.
