Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Myers has had his fair share of run-ins at airports and a chronicled battle with alcohol. Now, a source has exclusively confirmed to RadarOnline.com that the actor has now been banned from flying United Airlines due to a recent drunken display.
According to a source at John F. Kennedy airport in New York, in early May Rhys Myers was booked on a United Airlines flight headed to Los Angeles. Despite the early morning departure time, airline workers noticed the actor “pounding drinks” in the first class lounge and becoming increasingly drunk and disorderly.
Rhys Myers then attempted to board the plane but was prohibited from flying due to “belligerent” and “disruptive” behavior that “was getting out of control.”
When contacted by RadarOnline.com, an airline employee confirmed the story but refused to elaborate, citing passenger privacy laws.
The Tudors actor has a history of traveling misbehavior. In 2007, seven months after checking into rehab for the second time, he was arrested at Dublin airport and charged with being drunk and in breach of peace (the charges were later dropped). Then, in June 2009, three months after checking out of rehab the third time, he was arrested after allegedly attacking a number of staff at a bar in Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport.
