Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ Life After His Wife Had Miscarriage
Jonathan, who had issues of alcoholism in the past, was snapped at the Dublin Airport being escorted by security when he was to board a flight to Vancouver, Canada in early September 2017. He was too intoxicated to board the flight, so the guards had to take the step.
Two days after the inappropriate behavior of the Tudors’ actor, his wife, Mara Lane took to her Instagram account revealing the reason behind her husband’s turning back to booze. The couple had lost their second child due to miscarriage on 7th September 2017.
In a heartbreaking Instagram message, she revealed:
With much sadness, we open our hearts to share that J and I lost our second child, who was baking in the oven. Child was very very much wanted (right now especially by J, so he took the news particularly not so well) and we are still working with coping skills over here… when life throws us curve balls such as these.
As time itself heals every pain, Jonathan has moved on from the death of his unborn child. He is now enjoying his life, filming new projects and flaunting love with his wife and son.
