Selma Blair was taken to a hospital after reportedly having an outburst on an international flight Monday. 

The actress was flying to Los Angeles from Cancun, Mexico, where she was on holiday with her 4-year-old son, Arthur Saint. During the flight, People reports Blair began crying and talking about being physically abused by a man, whom she didn't name.

“He burns my private parts. He won’t let me eat or drink,” she reportedly stated, according to TMZ. “He beats me. He’s going to kill me.”

TMZ also reports that two nurses who were on board watched Blair until the flight landed and checked her bags for pills. Sources told the celebrity news site the pilot alerted the tower that a passenger had mixed alcohol with prescription medication

A source told People, "She was met by paramedics at LAX as soon as her plane arrived. It looks like she had taken a combination of prescription medication with alcohol."

Blair was seemingly in Mexico to celebrate Father's Day with her son and his dad (her ex), Jason Bleick. The "Legally Blonde" star shared a photo of herself and her son playing with mini planes on the departing flight, writing "Dad is already asleep" in the caption.

It's unclear whether all three of them were on the same flight to L.A. or if Bleick went to the hospital with Blair. 

UPDATE: On Tuesday, Blair issued a statement about the events to Vanity Fair, explaining that she did, in fact, mix alcohol with medication, which resulted in her outburst. She also apologized for her behavior. 

Her statement reads: 

I made a big mistake yesterday. 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 take this very seriously, and I apologize to all of the passengers and crew that I disturbed and am thankful to all of the people who helped me in the aftermath. I am a flawed human being who makes mistakes and am filled with shame over this incident. I am truly very sorry.
