Jonathan Rhys Meyers Is Sorry For Drinking Vodka In The Street

The last we’d heard from Jonathan Rhys Meyers, he was heading back to rehab (and this was in 2009!) for trouble with alcoholism. Since then, all has been quiet when it came to news of him… until last week, when he was pictured walking the streets of London looking fucked up (to say the least) and drinking vodka straight out of the bottle. Uh oh!

However, he broke his silence yesterday on the photos, apologizing via his fiancee Mara Lane’s Instagram page for his relapse and promising to work on getting better:

Here’s the full text of his apology:

Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time. I apologize for having a minor relapse and hope that people don’t think too badly of me. I stopped drinking immediately and it is no reflection on Damascus Cover as I was not meant to attend Cannes this year and I apologize to fans and colleagues. I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friends and had not changed I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I’m living a healthy life.
Love and blessings.

She looks miserable and really hurt. It can’t be easy to see someone you love in a state like he was in in those photos, so I hope he works some shit out, and soon.
