Kim Basinger Charged With Contempt

by at . Comments

The Gossip has learned that crazy Kim Basinger was arraigned on contempt charges yesterday. Kim's former husband, Alec Baldwin, triggered the case by alleging that Kim is guilty of a laundry list of violations in their ongoing custody dispute.

Among Baldwin's allegations -- that Basinger blocked his visitation rights, blocked his rights to speak with his daughter on the telephone and failed to notify him when the child suffered an injury.

Possibly Engaged

Basinger pled not guilty through her lawyer, Neal Hersh. The actress did not appear for the arraignment.

The former spouses have been deadlocked in an epic custody battle over 10-year-old Ireland. Baldwin has alleged Basinger is thwarting his ability to parent. Basinger has said right back at you, Saddam Hussein. Er, Alec.

Basinger faces 12 counts of contempt, each of which carries a maximum penalty of $1,000. This is a sad, sad case. Can't we all just get along? Someone call Stephen Baldwin to mediate!
