We reported in yesterday's Rumours that Alec Baldwin had been carted off to hospital after a 911 call from his 14-year-old daughter with Kim Basinger. Yes. She's only 14. In fact, these photos were taken over a year ago, when she was 13. Or possibly 12. Mental. I had the sophistication of a Just Seventeen problem page at that age.
Anyway, Us Magazine says: "Early Thursday morning, NYC's WNBC News reported that Baldwin, 51, was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital after his 14-year-old daughter, Ireland, called 911, claiming that the 30 Rock star was 'unresponsive' in their West Side apartment. A law enforcement official tells the Associated Press that Baldwin and his young daughter had argued and she told 911 he had threatened to take pills. (The official spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the person wasn't authorized to speak publicly.) Last year, he told Playboy that he contemplated suicide after the phone message (you know, the one where he called Ireland a "thoughtless little pig") was leaked to the press. 'I spoke to a lot of professionals who helped me... If I committed suicide [Basinger's side] would have considered that a victory. Destroying me was their avowed goal'."
Now there's a reason not to commit suicide; to piss off the ex-in-laws. How about sticking around to be a pillar of support for your beautiful daughter? Who is now probably in a world of trouble for "misunderstanding" her father... This comes from The Sun:
"Cops in New York say they were called as Ireland feared her dad may harm himself, while the New York Post claims Alec threatened to take pills after the pair got into a heated fight. However the star's spokesperson put it all down to a 'misunderstanding'. Alec is scheduled to co-host the 82nd annual Academy Awards show with Steve Martin on March 7. A New York City police official said that just after midnight, Ireland called the emergency services reporting a dispute. The source added: 'She reported he made statements that made her worried that he might harm himself or take pills or something like that.' Alec's spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said: 'This was a misunderstanding on one person's part. Alec was quickly released from the hospital. He's completely fine and is at work today'."
