Although Meyers appears to be keeping himself busy with work this year, the troubled actor has been dealing with the fallout from his November DUI arrest and previous stints in rehab for alcoholism.

The performer has been in and out of recovery programs ever since 2005, when he originally entered a treatment center for his struggles with substance abuse.

His subsequent stints in rehab over the years, with the most recent occurring in 2017, were intermingled with public incidents, including an instance where he was arrested after assaulting an airport lounge employee in Paris.

In November of last year, Meyers was arrested after he was involved in a single-car crash in Malibu and failed a sobriety test after officers arrived at the scene, although he was later released shortly after being booked.

The following January, Us Weekly reported that he had been formally charged with one count of driving under the influence of alcohol and another count of driving with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 percent or more.

The star has had a troubled history and in November 2011 was ordered by a French court to pay a restitution of €1,000 and was given a judgment of a suspended sentence for public intoxication 24 months earlier.

Meyers also publicly apologised to his fans in 2015 for a ‘minor relapse’ after pictures surfaced of him on a street drinking straight from a bottle of vodka.

In July 2018 the star vowed to stay sober after being detained following a drunken row with his wife Mara onboard a plane.

DailyMail.com exclusively reported the Bend It Like Beckham star screamed ‘f*** you, I’m going to divorce you’ at his wife when she asked him to stop smoking his e-cigarette on a plane, a passenger revealed, before the actor was detained by police at LAX.

The Irish actor was on an American Airlines flight from Miami to Los Angeles with his wife Mara and their then one-year-old son Wolf when he allegedly got into a drunken fight with her.

A fellow passenger, who was sitting in first class behind the actor, told the Sun Online that Meyers was behaving ‘erratically’ and had been intimidating other passengers throughout the flight.

He had been ordering ‘drink after drink’ and went to the toilet more than a dozen times – and refused to stop smoking his e-cigarette.

He was so inebriated, the passenger added, that he didn’t notice his jeans had fallen down to his knees at one point.

Eventually, flight attendants asked if his wife, who had separated herself from her husband by putting a privacy screen up, to see if she could intervene.

‘They told her that if he didn’t stop using the e-cigarette we’d have to land the plane early and get him off so she tried to tell him that,’ the passenger said.

‘That’s when he really lost it, he was yelling at her ”f*** you, shut the f*** up, I’m divorcing you when I get back, you’re annoying leave me the f*** alone”.’

‘Then he was ranting and screaming: ‘Who says I’m using e-cigarettes? Who? Who? Show me who said it.’

Police said he was ‘admonished’ for his behaviour and then released without charge.

In an interview on Larry King Now, the actor vowed to stay sober and admitted drinking doesn’t ‘suit’ him as he spoke about the incident.
