Hopefully, this time will take.
It's been quite a year so far for
Henry VIII of England Jonathan Rhys Meyers. A few months back, he narrowly escaped facing some serious assault and battery charges and now, he's back in rehab.
This marks the Tudors actor's fourth time in rehab in an attempt to kick his alcohol addiction and from what we hear, he isn't taking it seriously enough for this to be his last time either. According to reports, Jon checked into a London facility last month after a drunken scene at an airport. Jon was spotted in the VIP lounge at New York's JFK Airport, knocking back vodka drinks while he waited to board his flight to Los Angeles. When he tried to board, the staff refused to let him on the plane, insisting he was too drunk to fly. This sent him into a "foul-mouthed tirade" and his girlfriend, heiress Reena Hammer, into a fit of anger. She reportedly offered him an ultimatum right there in the airport, saying, "Check into rehab or I'm dumping you."
So he did, but his treatment lasted all of 10 days before he left the facility due to "work commitments."
Um, its called a summer hiatus for a reason. And besides, it sounds like you really needs this!
As far as we know, Tudors won't be shooting again for awhile so why are you running from the help you so desperately need? Maybe if you gave rehab the attention it deserves, you wouldn't have to go back again and again and again.
Just a thought, Jon. We just want to see you well.
