Selma Blair is very embarrassed.
She is also very sorry.
On Monday afternoon, the actress was flying back from Cancun with her four-year old son and ex-husband when she suffered what can only be described as a total meltdown.
A total, complete and utter meltdown, really.
According to TMZ, which broke the story, Blair was sipping a glass of wine in first class when she started to bawl and talk about fears regarding an unidentified man.
At one point, various passengers on board confirmed that Blair cried out:
“He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink. He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
Scary stuff, for sure.
We have no clarification at the moment on just who Blair was talking about.
But two nurses attended to Blair on the plane and then paramedics were called by the pilot to meet the vehicle on the ground.
Once the flight touched down, Blair was removed via stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital.
She has now spoken out about the incident.
“I made a big mistake yesterday,” she told Vanity Fair, adding:
“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.”
The woman who played Kris Jenner in a recent FX miniseries about the O.J. Simpson murder case in 1994 concluded:
“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.”
The unfortunate outburst took place after what appeared to be a very enjoyable weekend away at the Hard Rock Hotel Rivera Maya, where Blair had a massage and played with her son.
“This is truly out of character,” a source close to Blair tells People Magazine.
“She’s a devoted mom with a sharp sense of humor. She’s super outgoing, smart and funny – a put-together person. She’s also a proud mom and she loves talking about her kid.”
