Ireland Baldwin is not in rehab for the reason you think, thank you very much.
The model daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin commented Monday on a Radar Online report that her family had forced her to check into a rehab center in Malibu, California, over the weekend. The 19-year-old took to Twitter to shoot down the story: “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.” She added, “‘Intensive partying’ haha.”
About an hour later, Ireland explained the real reason as to why she checked into the SOBA Recovery Center.
Just Jared reported that Baldwin chose SOBA, which specializes in psychological disorders and addiction, because she already has a relationship with the facility.
“The establishment that Ireland checked into is where a lot of people in her family have gone to get sober,” a source revealed. “She’s known the people there for a long time and they’re like family to her. She needed a safe place to stay and get away for awhile and now she’s receiving the intensive therapy and treatment she needs.”
The insider also cited Baldwin’s hospitalization just last week for cervical cysts and her recent breakup with longtime girlfriend Angel Haze as stressors.
So far, Ireland’s parents have stayed mum on the matter. A source told People that “Alec Baldwin remains extremely protective of his daughter and does not want to make a public comment yet.”
