THE TRUTH ABOUT SELMA’S SAD SPI­RAL

In Touch (USA) - - Baby watch -

Selma Blair’s midair melt­down on a flight from Can­cun, Mex­ico, to LA on June 20 led to her hos­pi­tal­iza­tion and a pub­lic apol­ogy. But In Touch has learned the real story be­hind the shock­ing in­ci­dent: The ac­tress, 44, fell off the wagon while va­ca­tion­ing in Mex­ico with ex-boyfriend Ja­son Ble­ick and their son, Arthur, 4. “Selma had quit drink­ing al­co­hol for three years,” a source re­veals, “but when she went to Mex­ico she started again.” Selma also suf­fers from de­pres­sion, says the source, and mix­ing booze with her med­i­ca­tions turned out to be dis­as­trous. “She made the de­ci­sion to stop drink­ing to try to im­prove her life and be­cause she is so de­voted to her son,” says the source. “But the trip to Mex­ico was her un­do­ing. It was bound to end in dis­as­ter.”

“I am a flawed hu­man be­ing who makes mis­takes,” Selma said after the plane in­ci­dent (right).
