It was a shock when Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized on Tuesday due to a relapse – but the talented actor’s troubles are nothing new.
Dating back to early 2005, the Tudors star, 33, has bounced in and out of rehab and been arrested or detained for several drunken brawls.
In 2007, almost six months after his second trip to rehab, the first of Meyers’s public violent tirades got him in trouble with the law. After demonstrating erratic, abusive behavior at the Dublin, Ireland, airport, the actor was arrested and released shortly thereafter.
Meyers’s lawyer apologized on behalf of the star less than a month later for his “unacceptable and out of character” actions, which were later determined to be alcohol-related. But two and a half years later, Meyers faced a case of déjé vu.
After allegedly punching a Charles De Gaulle airport lounge employee while drunk in 2009, Meyers was detained by French police. Handcuffed and placed in custody, the actor remained in a sober lock-up area for three hours before being released.
