BREAKING: Jonathan Rhys Meyers attempted suicide!

“The Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London Tuesday night after reportedly attempting to commit suicide by overdosing on pills in his mansion.

According to U.K. paper The Sun, paramedics found 33-year-old Meyers “slumped on the floor” … but he refused treatment for 30 minutes before cops arrived and convinced the actor to go to the hospital.

Officials confirm that officers were dispatched to Meyers’ home — but would NOT say if Meyers was trying to take his own life.

Meyers — who has been in and out of rehab FIVE times — was released from the hospital early Wednesday morning.

Meyers, who plays Henry VIII has battled a drinking problem for years. He has spoken before about his drinking problem. “When I do drink I’m like Bambi,” he said. “I’m all over the place like a 16-year-old kid.”

He was discharged early yesterday morning. When asked how he was, he replied “No comment.”

I like him, I hope he gets the help he needs!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers checks into rehab…..again

‘The Tudors’ star Jonathan Rhys Meyers has checked into rehab, again, for alcohol addiction.

According to The Mirror, the 33-year-old actor spent 10 days at a London clinic last month. He has struggled with alcohol addiction for years. This latest trip to rehab is his fourth!

The actor last sought help for his alcohol addiction back in May 2010, just days after allegedly abusing airport staff after they banned him from getting on a flight while intoxicated. Meyers was seen drinking cocktails at 7 A.M. at New York’s JFK airport where he was due to get on the flight.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the incident was said to be the final straw for Meyers’ long-term girlfriend, Reena Hammer, who reportedly told him, “Check into rehab or I’m dumping you.”

Meyers was also previously arrested in 2007 at the Dublin Airport for being drunk and disturbing the peace, though the charges were later dropped.

He was also detained by police in June 2009 at the Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris after allegedly assaulting an employee at a bar while drunk.

Meyers has been brutally honest when he spoke about his issues with alcohol in the past. “When I do drink I’m like Bambi. I’m all over the place like a 16-year-old kid,” he said.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is heading BACK to rehab!

Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, star of Showtime’s ‘The Tudors,’ has agreed to give rehab another try for his addiction to alcohol following the latest in a string of airport-related incidents, his publicist has confirmed.

Though the rep declined to give further details, a source close to the situation tells PEOPLE that the 32-year-old star “just really wants to get better,” adding, “this has been an ongoing battle for him.”

The ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ and ‘Match Point’ star first entered rehab in April 2007, but it had no lasting impact on the actor. Just months after seeking treatment, he was arrested in a Dublin airport for public intoxication, and in June 2009, he was detained at a Paris airport after an alleged drunken assault on a lounge employee.
His airport woes continued earlier this month when he was reportedly barred from boarding a flight out of New York’s JFK airport because he had had too much to drink at a nearby VIP lounge.

According to, the actor became “belligerent” and “disruptive” with airport staff and was subsequently banned by United Airlines for future flights.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was detained by French police on Saturday afternoon following an incident in which he allegedly assaulted an airport lounge employee while drunk, Agence France Presse reports.

The Irish actor, 31, was placed in custody for several hours for having a skirmish with bar employees and allegedly punching one at the Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris, according to reports.

The incident began when a bartender at the café area “Le Quotidien” in the departure area of the airport at terminal 2F refused to serve the actor, who appeared drunk, according to the news service. A shouting match developed between Rhys Meyers and the bar manager. Then when another bar employee tried to separate the pair, Rhys Meyers swung and punched the intervening waiter.

Police handcuffed the actor when placing him in custody, and sources tell PEOPLE that the actor remained in a sober lock-up area for three hours before being released.

The AFP reports that Rhys Meyers has been told to appear before the Correctional Tribunal in Bobigny in September to answer charges concerning, “voluntary violence, contempt, issuing death threats and assault,” according to a judicial source.

The Tudors actor was previously arrested for public intoxication in November 2007 at the Dublin airport. In April of the same year he spent time in a rehab facility for treatment.

A rep for Rhys Meyers had no comment.
