Selma Blair was reportedly removed from a flight on a stretcher after an alleged outburst on Monday. According to TMZ, Blair was taken off of a Delta flight that was traveling from Cancun, Mexico, to L.A. after witnesses claim she mixed a substance in her wine and began to lose control. A source told People, “It looks like she had taken a combination of prescription medication with alcohol. We don’t know what sort of prescription medications.” TMZ reports that, according to witnesses, Blair then started crying and said, “He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink … He beats me. He’s going to kill me.” The pilot was alerted, and upon the flight’s landing, Blair, who was traveling at the time with her son and his father, Jason Bleick, was taken off the plane on a stretcher and brought to a nearby hospital.

Update: Blair has issued a statement apologizing for the incident, telling Vanity Fair that it occurred as a result of her mixing alcohol with medication. She explained: “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 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. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.”
