Selma Blair regrets mid-flight outburst
Selma Blair regrets her infamous "mid-flight" incident last summer.
The 44-year-old actress was removed from a plane in June 2016 and taken to hospital after a bizarre frenzy, which she later claimed was caused by mixing her medication with alcohol, and she now insists she has moved on from the "one-time mistake".
The brunette beauty – who has five-year-old son Arthur with her ex-partner Jason Bleick – told PEOPLE magazine: "It a regrettable thing. Mistakes happen.
"I’m recovered, and my family is fully recovered .
We’re doing great. I’m doing great, I’m taking care of myself. It was a one-time accident."
The ‘Cruel Intentions’ star was taken straight to hospital from her flight from Cancun, Mexico to Los Angeles on June 20, and previously claimed it was a "psychotic blackout" that caused her to have her outburst.
She said: "I am someone who should never drink, and I rarely do, and I don’t drink anymore, but I was going through something. I had a glass of wine and someone gave me a pill that I thought was something that I’d taken before … it was something completely different … and I had a total psychotic blackout.
"I had empathy for myself because it was so out of character for me especially now that I’m a mother. I was taken to a clinic to get an IV and get an assessment … my son was with his father and he had slept through it … I knew he was going to sleep so that’s why I took this pill … [but] bad choice all around – I totally own it."
During the incident, Selma allegedly screamed, "He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink … He’s going to kill me" in front of other passengers on the plane.
