Jonathan Rhys Meyers Sought Treatment for 'Anger Issues' Before Plane Blow-up
I guess it didn’t take. Jonathan Rhys Meyers was in South America seeking treatment for anger issues before he reportedly verbally attacked his wife Mara Lane during a flight from Miami to L.A. Sunday night. Their baby, Wolf, was also with them. Meyers was released later that night after being questioned and reprimanded for using vaping on the flight.
Lane took to Instagram to explain the situation, admitting that he’d been detained by LAX police and that the Tudors star was currently going through some "issues."
"8 months of sobriety and an unfortunate day of airline travel. We were in South America specifically working holistically through anger issues that result in these kinds of episodes. When in it… he is not in a frame of mind where he can really even comprehend the repercussions and necessary response to his own actions," Lane captioned a photo of a motivational quote.
Meyers has battled substance abuse issues for years. Lane wrote: "J IS extremely sorry for any inconveniences caused to anyone traveling yesterday. There was no argument, just me asking him to not use his e cig per stewardess’ request to me and him not being himself, speaking very very unkindly. It was out of his character."
"We are home safe and he is feeling deeply sorry for any remote disrespect afforded to me, attendants, onlookers or officers," she continued. "Thank you for your compassion on this ongoing battle with addiction we are in."
