Ireland Baldwin ‘checks into rehab’
Ireland Baldwin was supposedly admitted into a rehabilitation centre located in Malibu, California.
The 19-year-old model, who is the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, was rushed to hospital in early April after suffering from appendicitis.
But it appears Ireland may have more health issues to deal with, as speculation is rife she admitted herself into a Malibu, California rehabilitation facility to seek treatment for alcohol and drug abuse.
“Ireland, accompanied by her mother Kim, did her intake at a centre in Malibu on Thursday and checked in the following day,” an insider told Radar Online.
Ireland supposedly did not want to go to rehab at all.
It’s claimed her loved ones were extremely concerned about her welfare, even though the teenager didn’t feel as if she had any addiction issues.
“She came in kicking and screaming,” the insider noted.
“Apparently Ireland did not think that she has a problem but she has been partying non-stop and her family is worried sick about her.
“Alcoholism runs in their family. Two of Ireland’s relatives also went to this facility, so this place is well-trusted in the family.”
Although many treatment centres deny patients access to the Internet, Ireland’s lavish rehab purportedly allows web surfing.
“Patients are allowed to use their phones, go online and are fed elaborate dinners such as filet mignon,” the source said.
Ireland took to Twitter Monday afternoon to have a joke about reports she is currently in rehab.
Although the stunning blonde had a laugh at the media’s expense, she did not outright deny the claims.
“‘Intensive partying’ haha (sic),” she wrote in her initial tweet, before writing in a second post: “Apparently I'm in rehab for intensive partying soooo I'm just going to lay pretty low for a bit and maybe get some frozen yogurt”.
