Tudor star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is headed back to rehab on the heels of an out-of-control drunken incident during which he used the "N" word, can report.

As was first to report, Rhys Meyers, 32, was recently banned from flying United Airlines due to a drunken display.

According to a source at John F. Kennedy airport in New York, in early May, the troubled Irish actor 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. The source says Rhys Meyers used the "N" word against a United Airlines employee who stopped him from boarding the flight.

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.
