Ireland on the Receiving End of Alec's Ugly Rage

Ireland on the Receiving End of Alec's Ugly Rage

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's messy (to put it lightly) relationship since their split in 2000 has been tabloid fodder for years. Until now, however, the stories of Alec's rage have been just that -- stories, and something I hoped was kept far away from their 11-year-old daughter, Ireland. Yesterday afternoon, TMZ got its hands on the tape of an enraged rant Alec left on Ireland's voicemail when she failed to pick up the phone at their scheduled time to talk. In the diatribe he lashes out calling Kim a "thoughtless pain," telling Ireland that she makes him "feel like sh*t," threatening to "straighten her out" and calling her a "thoughtless little pig." Click here to listen to the entire thing. In response, a judge ruled that Alec is temporarily banned from seeing Ireland. A further hearing will be set to proceed from here.

In response to the voicemail being leaked, Alec's publicist issued a statement to EXTRA:

"In the best interest of the child, Alec will do what the mother is pathologically incapable of doing ... keeping his mouth shut and obeying the court order. The mother and her lawyer leaked this sealed material in violation of a court order. Although Alec acknowledges that he should have used different language in parenting his child, everyone who knows him privately knows what he has been put through for the past six years."

As ridiculous as break-ups can be, it's heartbreaking that there is an 11-year-old in the middle. Hopefully all the members of this family can figure out the best way to handle this situation. And if Alec isn't already getting help for his anger issues, he should definitely look into that.

I feel so sorry for Ireland, I was in her shoes at her age. It is an awful experience, and having it in the spotlight like this, makes it 10,000 times worse.

i don't get how his pr people can even spin this. it's just rude and uncalled for. the girl is 11 yrs old. whatever it is that's going on between him and his ex-wife should stay between them. don't drag the little girl into it. that's a shame!

If anyone left a message like that on my 10 year old daughters phone, I'd contact my lawyer and the police. That poor kid had to be scared to death to hear that, "I'm going to straighten you out!" comment over and over. Poor baby! I think airing one's dirty laundry for the press is a crummy move. As a mom, I'd still contact the authorities. There are always people who work for the lawyers who will leak stuff. They aren't bound. Same with the police department. I doubt Kim herself leaked this. Poor Ireland, I hope she is getting the help she needs or is going to need someday. Little girls grow up and marry guys like their daddy's too often. Hopefully they can break the chain of abuse here. I've heard of Alec being verbally abusive (obviously) has he been physical? I can't remember. Darn, I still love him on 30 Rock though. Does that make me a bad person?

this is really hideous on so many levels :( he should not be speaking poorly about a mother to a child, name calling and his tone and overreaction are all VERY childlike behaviors

Those two need to just step back and respect that they are both good parents. If they did that they could work out the custody issues fairly. Learn to share people.SB

Wow! I got scared myself just listening to his insane voice and words! I can not even imagine what Ireland is put to, but she definitely is scared too! If I were Kim I would do the same thing, go public, to save my daughter and stop this craziness!

You're right. I have total disdain for Alec Baldwin. I used to be fan, but now I hate him and it's because I listened to that message. I heard the anger he spewed at his own daughter as he said to her: "You have insulted me, you don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being," and "you better be ready Friday, the 20th, to meet with me so I'm gonna let you know just how I feel about what a rude little pig you really are" No child deserves that treatment, no matter what they've done. It's abuse, flat-out. And abusers don't deserve access to those they abuse.And I believe you are clearly justifying his actions when you say:"Anyone who thinks that a dad losing his temper like that is grounds for denying him any child visitation altogether probably hasn't raised teenagers or been close to a hostile divorce with children involved."and:"Decent people can turn pretty ugly when someone starts messing with their access to their kids."Frankly, I don't care what has gone on before this, or why he says he "lost it" on her. That phone call speaks volumes to how he treats his child, and it's proof enough that he doesn't have what it takes to be a good parent.

You make way too many assumptions, all clouded by your obvious disdain for Alec Baldwin. Nobody is defending or condoning his behavior, but he's not the first father in a custody battle to be in that position. There are more sides to this story. One short message does not show the whole picture.

Ginger: Making those kinds of remarks and "losing your temper" with another adult (i.e., your ex) is one thing. Losing it like that with your child is another. If his temper allows him to abuse her like that in a voice message, what does he do when he's in the same room with her? And as far as Alec Baldwin being a "decent person" who just had an ugly moment: there have been countless reports over the years of his angry outbursts and physical threats, all from people who have nothing to do with his "hostile divorce" from Kim Basinger. It's incredible to me that anyone could defend him in this!

I don't think anyone is justifying Alec's choice of words. Even he agrees that they were wrong, and he can get anger management, but what's going to help Kim overcome her bitterness and become a decent parent? She has spent years provoking him. Anyone who thinks that a dad losing his temper like that is grounds for denying him any child visitation altogether probably hasn't raised teenagers or been close to a hostile divorce with children involved. It is unfortunately not that unusual. Decent people can turn pretty ugly when someone starts messing with their access to their kids.
