Selma Blair tells: Why I freaked out on plane

'I made a big mistake yesterday.'

Actress Selma Blair has released a statement following an inflight incident on June 20 where she was sent to hospital following an outburst in first class.

‘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,’ the actress, 43 said in a statement to Vanity Fair.

‘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.’

Sources on the plane reported that Blair started to cry and yell, ‘He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,’ after consuming alcohol and medication. ‘He beats me. He’s going to kill me.’

Blair was travelling back from Mexican holiday destination Cancun after spending the US Father’s Day weekend with her son, Arthur, 4 and his father David Bleick.
