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."

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
