“The Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is been sued in an airline worker who is claiming that the Cork born actor assaulted, battered and verbally abused  her after he was barred from boarding an early morning flight.

Rhys Meyers behaved so “outrageously and shockingly” that it exceeded all “reasonable bounds of decency”, according to the formal complaint, which occurred in New York’s JFK airport last May.

Kathryn Williams, who is a United Airlines customer service director, has filed the papers against the Irish actor in the the Supreme Court in Queen's, New York.

She is claiming to have suffered permanent physical damage and severe emotional distress since the incident occurred last May.

The complaint states that the Irish actor’s actions left the airline worker unable to attend to her usual work duties.

The lawsuit alleges: “That on May 7, 2010, at approximately 6.00am...the defendant committed tortuous acts consisting of verbally and physically abusing plaintiff causing her to sustain physical injuries and severe emotional distress.”

It continues: “Defendant Jonathan Rhys Meyers willfully, maliciously, wantonly and without any just cause or provocation assaulted and battered plaintiff Kathryn Williams.”

As a result Rhys Meyers has been barred from flying with United Airlines.

In 2007 the actor was arrested in Dublin airport for being drunk and in vreach of the peace, however no charges were brought against him.
