Jonathan Rhys Meyers Drinking Problem Goes to New Heights

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is banned from flying the friendly skies after he was anything but with the crew of United Airlines.

Jonathan, who has been in and out of rehab and AA, was reportedly "belligerent" and "disruptive" at JFK airport, and was banned from boarding a United Airlines flight.

According to Radaronline, an official from the airport has confirmed he was “pounding drinks” in the first class lounge early one morning this month but became “out of control” and was refused entry.

Jonathan's no stranger to trouble at the airport. Last year, he was arrested at a bar in Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport for reportedly challenging police to a fight. He was also arrested in Ireland in November 2007 for being out of control drunk, just seven months after checking into rehab for the second time.

Jonathan always has been and always will be a drunken mess. He's confessed in the past that he has no control when he drinks, so this really shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. We just hope he gets the help he desperately needs--and sticks to it.
