Selma Blair Speaks Out About THAT Plane Breakdown
Everyone was a little shaken this morning, waking up to news that Selma Blair had been removed from a plane by stretcher after experiencing a breakdown during a flight with her four-year-old son.
The ordeal involved Blair crying, before being heard yelling things like, “He burns my private parts… he won’t let me eat or drink… he beats me. He’s going to kill me!”
Witnesses on board the flight say that they saw Blair pour something into her wine before drinking it, and today Blair has spoken out to address the situation.
According to a report on SMH, Blair has apologised for her outburst on an international flight that led to her hospitalisation.
The incident occurred as she was returning from a family holiday, and the 43-year-old actress said she deeply regretted the incident.
In a statement issued to Vanity Fair, she said: "I made a big mistake [on Monday]. After a lovely trip with my son and his Dad, I mixed alcohol with medication, and that caused me to black out and led me to say and do things that I deeply regret.
"My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. "I take this very seriously, and I apologise to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath.
"I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry."
