Alec Baldwin's model daughter Ireland (19) checks into rehab for 'emotional trauma'

Ireland Baldwin has checked into rehab for two weeks.
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 she revealed she checked into a facility for "emotional trauma".
“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 tweeted last night that she checked into the facility to help her work through emotional issues.
"I checked myself into Soba for two weeks to just get away for a little bit. I'm not much a party cat but I am here deal with some emotional trauma and getting the intensive therapy I needed in order to recover. Someday I'll feel ready to share my story openly without feeling the way I do.
"Right now I just needed a breather. I needed a chance to work on myself and gather all the tools. I need to overcome everything that I had been through and rid myself of all the pain I locked away in unreachable places."
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”.
