According to a source, the 55-year-old caused a dramatic scene while flying home on her own last week and was subsequently led into a side-room by airport staff who comforted her, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 41-year-old, who previously dated rapper 50 Cent, hotelier Andre Balazs and TV executive Ted Harbert, doesn’t believe relationships last forever and is glad she never married when she was younger, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“If I’d got married in my 30s, I’d be divorced by now because I have a personality for divorce. And I don’t really want kids. I’m not interested in the myth of ‘The One’ either,” Handler told Red magazine.

“I believe, as you get older, you make better decisions and if I were to get married now, I would trust myself more. I’m not so stupid. I don’t ignore the flags,” she added.
