Child and Miscarriage

A year later, in September 2017, Lane disclosed through her Instagram that the couple lost their yet-to-be-born second child to miscarriage. The fetus, named Willo, was buried in their front yard beneath a tree.
Lane captioned a picture of sunlight beaming through the branches of a tree on her Instagram referring to the incident, “I have been given peace and Baby Willow is now planted in the tree in front of our home that has weeping long branches and leaves so we can brush our faces in soft leaves in passing or we can see the baby dance with the wind in the branches as they sway. It is helping me process the situation as Nature does.”
Meyers had a history of struggle with alcoholism. First enrolling into a Malibu rehab facility in 2005 to seek treatment for alcohol abuse, he again returned to the facility two years later in 2007. Lastly, in 2009, he made his third visit to the rehab center.
After a series of relapse battles with alcoholism, Meyers experienced another relapse in 2017 after learning of his wife Lane’s miscarriage. Meyers turned to alcohol to cope with the devastating news at the time, according to Lane.
“Depression is a real concern from past abuse as well as alcoholism which he was born with. He has been able to turn any ugliness and hurt in his life into art and is the strongest person I know,” Lane wrote on Instagram beside a picture of a woman petting a lion in 2017.
“I do not know anyone who has been through what he has been through and reached his level of success. It does seem though that every time we seem to be making so much progress… sometimes it’s like two steps forward, one step back”, she added.
The Flight Fight

Lane later clarified on Instagram that Meyers was endeavoring to work out his anger issues and that the incident on the airplane was not serious.
“8 months of sobriety and an unfortunate day of airline travel,” she wrote. “We were in South America specifically working holistically through anger issues that result in these kinds of episodes. When in it… he is not in a frame of mind where he can really even comprehend the repercussions and necessary response to his own actions. J IS extremely sorry for any inconveniences caused to anyone traveling yesterday”, she further added to her statement on Instagram.
