Actress Selma Blair Apologizes Following Emotional Public Outburst on Plane

Actress Selma Blair apologized after being taken off a plane on a stretcher following a mid-air outburst on a trip home from a family getaway.

A source told People Magazinethat Blair, who was heading back to Los Angeles from a vacation in Cancun, Mexico with her 4-year-old son Arthur Saint, had allegedly started screaming and crying in mid-air.

Once the plane landed at LAX, Blair was rushed to the hospital by local medical professionals.

“She was met by paramedics at LAX as soon as her plane arrived,” the source said. “It looks like she had taken a combination of prescription medication with alcohol. We don’t know what sort of prescription medications.”

According to TMZ, who broke the story, other witnesses heard Blair crying that she was afraid of an unnamed man.

“He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” Blair allegedly said. “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”

Blair has since apologized for the incident in a statement she gave to Vanity Fair.

“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,” said Blair. “My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologize 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.”

On her Twitter account, Blair replied to a comment of support from “Orange is the New Black” star Lori Petty, saying that she had a “super bad day.”

Earlier in the week, Blair posted an Instagram photo of her and her son on a plane, saying that they were “leaving on a jet plane.”

We’re leaving on a jet plane. Dad is already asleep. Not for long. Bwahahahha . #fathersdayweekend
