Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London this week after a possible suicide attempt involving pills, according to a report.
He reputedly refused treatment, so the paramedics called the police, and Meyers was taken to hospital.
“He did relapse but he did not try to commit suicide,” says a source. “He was taken to the hospital and then released.” His rep has no comment.
A Scotland Yard spokesman tells PEOPLE: “We can confirm we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address in NW8 to report to a man refusing treatment. Police attended, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital. That was the end of our involvement.”
The actor was reportedly discharged from hospital early Wednesday.
