It seems that Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is going through a very difficult time again after his wife, Mara Lane, recently announced that the couple lost their second baby which was on the way. On Sunday morning, she wrote a lengthy Instagram post in which she explained everything that happened. She reportedly had a miscarriage and her husband is not taking the news well because he really wanted another child. The couple already has a little boy, Wolf Rhys Meyers, born in 2016.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers starts drinking again

9/7/17 Forever Young ????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. Depression is a real concern from past abuse as well as alcoholism which he was born with. He has been able to turn any ugliness and hurt in his life into art and is the strongest person I know. I do not know anyone who has been through what he has been through and reached his level of successes. It does seem though that every time we seem to be making so much progress… sometimes it’s like two steps forward, one step back. Thank you family and friends and all of you lovely kind beautiful people who send us good energy and thoughts and support. It is so appreciated. I have so much love for you. To some others, my husband is an Irishman who battles alcoholism and depression and drank between jobs to try to cope with the sadness of this news. I am trying to and still learning/adjusting to living with the public, like one would as a concerned mother-in-law. I feel that whomever took photos of my husband was slightly in the wrong and was concerned for the wrong reasons but … it’s ok. It’s ok. Maybe you have/had a family to feed and need/needed money? I don’t know. We forgive you. He is safe and with his sober living companion and bodyguard to get into a detox closer to home since he was denied hospital help twice in Ireland because of an already two month wait period. Life is life. Life is beautiful. Life is tough sometimes though so let’s try not looking down at someone unless we intend on helping them up. Sending love to those in… Texas, Florida, India and Mexico with all the natural disasters going on. We are both so sensitive and the past couple of weeks have been so ouch in our hearts for all humans and animals affected. With Love, M&J

According to Mara Lane, because of this tragic news, her husband (40) came back to his old habits of drinking. She admitted that the actor has been struggling with depression and alcoholism for entire years but that he was getting better. Then this tragedy happened and everything turned upside down. He is reportedly drowning his sadness in alcohol.

However, his wife said that she admires him for the strength he had and that not many people would have made it through what he made it through. She also took notice about the paparazzi photos which showed security escorting the actor at the Dublin Airport because he was extremely drunk. They reportedly didn’t allow him to fly to Vancouver because of the state he was in.

She also said that she understands the need of those paparazzi to take such photos and that they forgive the person who took them. Lane also confirmed that Rhys Meyers is currently on the right track, recovering from his addiction. Mara Lane and Jonathan Rhys Meyers have been a couple since the beginning of 2013. They supposedly got engaged around Christmas, in 2014. Lane ended her post by saying that nobody should ever look down at someone unless they have the intention of helping them get back up.
