'The Tudors' Star Jonathan Rhys Meyers Checks into Rehab
By Christo Varghese Posted May 5th 2011 04:00AM
The Mirror is reporting that the 33-year-old actor, who has a history of battling alcohol addiction, is said to have spent 10 days at a London clinic last month.
He is believed to have left the facilities due to work commitments.
This is reportedly Meyers' fourth stint at rehab.
The actor last sought help for his alcohol addiction back in May 2010, just days after allegedly abusing airport staff after they banned him from getting on a flight while intoxicated. Meyers was seen drinking cocktails at 7 A.M. at New York's JFK airport where he was due to get on the flight.
The Daily Mail is reporting that the incident was said to be the final straw for Meyers' long-term girlfriend, Reena Hammer, who reportedly told him, "Check into rehab or I'm dumping you."
Meyers was also previously arrested in 2007 at the Dublin Airport for being drunk and disturbing the peace, though the charges were later dropped.
He was also detained by police in June 2009 at the Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris after allegedly assaulting an employee at a bar while drunk.
Meyers has been brutally honest when he spoke about his issues with alcohol in the past. "When I do drink I'm like Bambi. I'm all over the place like a 16-year-old kid," he said.
