Geraldine Meyers-O'Keefe, the mother of The Tudors' Jonathan Rhys Meyers, passed away on Tuesday after a short illness. She was 51. It was rumored that Rhys Meyers' Sunday arrest for disorderly behavior and public drunkenness (seven months after he underwent rehab) stemmed from the actor's grief over his mother's admission to the hospital.

Rhys Meyers is due to appear at Dublin District Court next month.
