(Newser) – The wife of Jonathan Rhys Meyers is providing some insight after the Irish actor was blocked from boarding a flight and seen stumbling at Dublin Airport over the weekend, per Dublin Live. In an Instagram post on Sunday, Mara Lane revealed Meyers, a recovering alcoholic, suffered a relapse after Lane had a miscarriage. The "child was very, very much wanted … especially by J, so he took the news particularly not so well," Lane wrote, per People. The 40-year-old Tudors actor is now "safe and with his sober living companion and bodyguard" while he tries to get into a detox center, Lane adds. (Read more Jonathan Rhys Meyers stories.)
