Actress Selma Blair Apologizes For Mid-Air Meltdown

LOS ANGELES ( — Selma Blair issued a public apology Tuesday, after an outburst during a flight from Mexico to Los Angeles.

The actress, known for roles in "Legally Blonde" and "The People v. O.J. Simpson" was removed from an airliner, at the end of a Delta Airlines flight from Cancun to LAX Monday. She was taken away on a stretcher by paramedics.

Blair, 43, was traveling ex-boyfriend Jason Bleick and their four-year-old son Arthur.

According to Entertainment Tonight, a witness said Blair began crying and talking about an unknown man, saying "He beats me. He wants to kill me."

In a statement to Vanity Fair, Blair wrote; "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 am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry."
