Last week, Jonathan Rhys Meyers sparked concern after he was pictured looking unrecognisable and drinking straight from a bottle of vodka on the streets of London.
Today, the Cork native - who has no social media presence - took to his fiancee Mara Lane's Instagram account to break his silence and apologise for his behaviour.
Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time. I apologizes for having a minor relapse and hope that people don't think too badly of me. I stopped drinking immediately and it is no reflection on Damascus Cover as I was not meant to attend Cannes this year and I apologize to fans and colleagues. I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friends and had not changed I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I'm living a healthy life. Love and blessings. #Rebel #Angel
