Actress Selma Blair is sorry for her behaviour on a Los Angeles-bound plane after which she was taken off a flight on a stretcher. The Hellboy star was on vacation in Cancun with her four-year-old son and her designer ex-boyfriend Jason Bleick, and reportedly lost her cool in the Delta flight raging about an unseen foe, said The Hollywood Reporter.
“I made a big mistake yesterday. 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,” Blair said in the statement.
Two nurses aboard the plane helped subdue the 39-year-old actress who was shouting uncontrollably. Witnesses who were also on the flight told TMZ that Blair, 43, was seated in first class, enjoying a glass of wine when she started to cry and talk about fears regarding an unnamed male.
“He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” she reportedly stated. “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
