Model IRELAND BALDWIN is mostly famous for flaunting her expensive lifestyle courtesy of having two of the world’s most famous parents – but, despite that, the 19-year-old bisexual beauty is now being treated in rehab for “emotional trauma!”
The troubled daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger – a pawn in their bitter 2002 divorce – remains “emotionally scarred” from the custody battle that began when she was only 5 years old, a family source told The National ENQUIRER.
“Ireland remains at wit’s end over her father’s behavior,” revealed a source.
In an infamous 2007 rant, the “30 Rock” star was caught on tape blasting Ireland, then aged 11, because she did not answer the phone.
During the call, Alec ranted: “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig. You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being!”
According to a source: “Kim has been at Ireland’s rehab center almost every day since she checked in, but sadly, Alec wasn’t seen there.”
Confirming she’d checked into SOBA Recovery Center, a drug and alcohol treatment facility in Malibu that specializes in psychological disorders and addiction, Ireland took to Twitter to tell fans that she needed “intensive therapy” to “recover.”
“Someday I’ll feel ready to share my story,” she wrote.
While her parents insist Ireland isn’t battling substance abuse problems, the website RadarOnline quoted a source that said “substance abuse and partying” was “partially to blame for her mental and physical breakdown.”
Said a source: “She was not a hard drug user, but she did drown her feelings in the same way so many other people do. This went on for a couple of months and during that time, she shut everyone out, including her family.”
Ireland was also struggling with issues since her split with girlfriend, rapper Angel Haze.
