  • The troubled Tudors actor was taken to a medical facility near his home, according to reports

    Troubled Tudors actor Johnathan Rhys Myers was rushed to hospital earlier this week following a suspected ‘suicide bid,’ according to reports.

    It is believed the Hollywood star – who has long battled an alcohol addiction, and checked into a five-star South African rehabilitation centre earlier this month – swallowed pills at his London home.

    Reports allege medical workers arrived at Johnathan’s Maida Flat on Tuesday to find him slumped on the floor.

    It’s thought the ex-model ‘vigorously refused’ treatment for more than 30 minutes, forcing the ambulance crew to call for police help.

    Last night a Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed officers were called to London address, but refused to give any more details.

    ‘Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment,’ a statement read. ‘The man was taken to hospital.’

    Reps for the star have yet to comment on the latest sad turn of events, but one insider told the Sun it is believed the actor was attempting suicide.

    ‘This is very sad,’ they said. ‘It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life.’
