Brigitte Nielsen has spoken out about the boozy pictures which sparked concern for the actress's health.

Sylvester Stallone's ex was seen drinking from a bottle of vodka in a Los Angeles park.

But Brigitte, who has battled an addiction with alcohol, told Radar Online that there was nothing to worry about and that she had a "momentary relapse".

"Looking at the pictures I can understand the level of worrying, but I can assure everyone that there is no cause for alarm," she said.

"I have been on the road working non-stop for such a long time, fulfilling my professional commitments, shooting shows around the world with all the pressure that comes with it."

The 49-year-old added: "That, combined with major health issues in my family, drove me to the unfortunate circumstances that you can see on the pictures.

"At that moment in time, I felt like I needed a moment to myself, in a park.

"The vodka came about as a desperate move to try to release some pressure and is under no circumstances an indication of how I lead my life on a day-to-day basis."
