New Details! Jonathan Rhys Meyers Banned From Airline After Drunken Racist Tirade

Yikes!

Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was banned from flying United after throwing back too many drinks, which prompted him to drop the "N" word at the airline workers!

He was drinking vodka and the flight was before 7AM!

This isn't the first time he's behaved badly after boozing. He was arrested for being drunk and in breach of peace back in 2007 in Dublin only 7 months after his second stint in rehab.

And in June 2009 he allegedly attacked staff at a bar in Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport just after he got out of rehab a THIRD time!

Sounds like someone needs yet another trip to rehab!

    Asshole.



  2. 2

    Old "News"…. groan……..



  3. 3

    Wow! I didn't know people still actually use this word as a pathetic attempt to put someone down. Alas, alcohol puts one's true character on display.



  4. 4

    Seems he has issues in airports. That Dublin incident was in an airport too.



  5. 5

    wow… just wow.



  6. 6

    Lindsay can join him



  7. 7

    he's so fucking sexy. i dont even care.



  8. 8

    what a fucktard



  9. 9

    Such a good looking man. How sad. I hope he gets it together. At least he has managed to keep working even with everything he has done. Unlike some of our American drunkards.



  10. 10

    If this is true, I am shocked. Wouldn't figure him for a bigot, but then again, a lot of raging alcoholics are bigots. He sucks.



  11. 11

    Shit. I'm still gonna watch the Tudors. :)



  12. 12

    that's really unfortunate. i used to find him attractive. now, knowing he uses the N word to hurt people, i see he's incredibly ugly.
    and i don't give a shit if he was drunk. no excuses for that kind of behaviour. NONE.



  13. 13

    Sounds like he's scared shitless of flying. He only pulls this crap when he's in an airport waiting for a flight. He might want to look into a job where he doesn't need to fly.



  14. 14

    He has such an ugly praying mantis face.



  15. 15

    yet another racist white person…they're so hard to find *yawn*



  16. 16

    Maybe he's an alcoholic, Perez, and not an idiot as you labeled him. I love how Perez thinks people were born gay and can't help being gay yet this guy is an alcoholic and can't help being an alcoholic. The pot calling the kettle the n-word. Mario, how about you wish him the best on this rehab stint like the well wishes you betstow on gays that just came out?



  17. 17

    A drunk tongue speaks a sober mind. I'm sure he'll be checking into a treatment center..AGAIN, but we all know there is no treatment to cure douchebaggery

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – WHAAAAAAAT! He can't help being an alcoholic? He can't help acting a drunk fool in public and harassing service workers trying to make a buck? He can't stop acting like a drunk fool in public? He can't stop being banned from airlines? He can't stop physically attacking people? He can't stop threatening to kill other human beings? Yes he fucking can help it. Wide eyes has been to rehab a few times. Yet, he has chosen to act like a drunken idiot and not to beat his addiction and commit to sobriety. Yep, that seems like an idiot to me.

    For fucks sake Eldridge Cleaver , you are a Spencer Pratt head.



  19. 19

    gay rage



  20. 20

    that's too bad, he's SO damned talented…another Richard Burton, Richard Harris, William Holden……substance loving actor.



  21. 21

    Piece of Shit



  22. 22

    pitiful ass racist… get your shit together



  23. 23

    Such a talented and handsome guy. Irish and alcohol is a bad, bad combination. I despise the N-word but feels also sorry for Jon he's ruin his life and isn't able to keep on track.

  24. @v@ says – reply to this

    He looks perfect, for Lindsay Lohan.



  25. 25

    I wonder if he ever gets arrested would he stand on his tippy toes for the mug shot?

    JRM is HOT!!! He did a stupid thing and I'd love to spank him for that, but he can come to my house ANY day, and I won't serve him booze.



  27. 27

    Okayy I USED to like JRM, no more!



  28. 28

    Who the fuck cares? It's just a word.



  29. 29

    He is not an asshole! He works his ass off. Give him a break! Alcohol does make you do stupid things! I'm sure he did not mean it, if it's even true!? Has anyone asked HIM what happened?



  30. 30

    this creep goes to the airport, gets drunk, abuses airport personnel with his nasty beligerent racist behavior because he knows he can get away with it at the airport and no one will smack him in the mouth. Bet he would never go into a store, deli, the subway or a club in NYC and get drunk and start throwing around the n-word. He knows what he would get… so he goes to the airport and is abusive where he will get away with it. But good for United they did the next best thing and banned him from flying their airline. Basically saying we don't need the business of a frustrated, mean, nasty little, little petty want to be a man. This creep should take his racist views and his weird GF and go home we have enough problems with racists in this country we don't need him adding to it… Watch his movies or purchase the services of his GF parents companies Ruby & Millie or Urban Retreat and you are supporting this type of behavior….

    Re: LovelyCup – Spoken like a moron who's never met an alcoholic. Don't you think he wants to stop drinking n saying dumb shit like you spout? You guys just can't help it. I get it.



  32. 32

    "A drunken mind speaks a sober heart"
    No excuse for rattling of "N-words" at anybody, ever. Shows what's really in his heart deep down.



  33. 33

    Re: jollydolly – irish and alcohol is bad combination? fuck you and your sweeping generalisations. I detect a hint of racism in that comment! you ever even been to ireland? keep your trap shut on issues you don't have a clue about.



  34. 34

    It's a damn shame. He's a good actor and is amazing in The Tudors. He definitely needs help big time at this point. Hope his stint in rehab this time around does him some kind of justice for a lifetime not just for a few months like the other times or else he'll just become another wasted talent story. SMH.



  35. 35

    The 'N' word. I thought he was gay! Newsflash Meyers, it's time to come out the closet, and not R Kelly's, since you have something asgainst african-Americans! (lol)



  36. 36

    HOT!



  37. 37

    Um, hello? Rehab is where publicists send stars when an incident has happened that is in any way morally questionable, whether they have a problem or not. It is certainly not a cure-all. Could it be any more obvious that they is a strong, independent man that likes to be in control and he is simply terrified of flying? All these incidents have happened when it involves flying. I know quite a few people that need to "medicate" to take a flight, where that is strong motion sickness meds or booze (I've even been known to toss back a couple of cocktails in the lounge before going aboard!). Obviously he's an angry drunk and it should be avoided, so perhaps the answer isn't rehab, but maybe hypnotherapy or some other kind of flying intervention so this isn't repeated? Give the guy a break…



  38. 38

    Racial slurs are not acceptable. I am no longer a fan,



  39. 39

    he's been to rehab twice and he continues to drink,what makes anyone think a third time will be the charm?



  40. 40

    he's been to rehab twice and he continues to drink,what makes anyone think a third time will be the charm? sorry,I mean the forth time.



  41. 41

    he looks like eminem



  42. 42

    not hot any more. i think a lot less of him and i really didnt expect this from him



  43. 43

    i hope some brutha beats the snot outa this punk



  44. 44

    Jonathan. Let me introduce you to Dr. Drew. Dr. Drew. Jonathan.



  45. 45

    This is BEYOND disappointing. This guy is on one of my favorite shows on tv. Should I support this kind of behavior by keep watching? What a loser.



  46. 46

    hope he gets better :(
