It was reported that Selma Blair was forcibly removed from a plane on Monday at Los Angeles airport after the pilot and crew became increasingly concerned about her erratic behavior.
The “Cruel Intentions” actress was on a return trip from Mexico with her four-year-old son Arthur in first class, where she was seen to be drinking wine and was reportedly overheard saying “He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink. He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”
Now, Selma has given an exclusive statement to Vanity Fair, telling her side of the story.
“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. My son was with his Dad asleep with his headphones on, so there is that saving grace. I take this very seriously, and I apologise 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.”
Isn’t it refreshing when a celebrity just holds their hands up and takes responsibility. Nice one, Selma.
