Kim Basinger Charged With Contempt, Custody Breach

by at . Comments

Channeling her inner Pete Doherty (and apparently in need of a lawyer as good as his), actress Kim Basinger may face 60 days in jail and a $12,000 fine when she makes an appearance in court tomorrow on 12 contempt of court charges.

Basinger is accused of breaching a custody agreement she shares with ex-husband Alec Baldwin, who claims she failed to notify him when she was out of town and also failed to inform him when their daughter, Ireland, suffered an injury that required medical attention.

Baldwin, who has been liked to Saddam Hussein by his former spouse, alleges the actress has a "pathological need" to keep Ireland away from her father, and that "her resentments are more precious to her than the emotional well-being of her child."

Odds are, of course, that Kim Basinger will get a mere slap on the wrist. And as usual, Basinger will continue to be insane and prevent Alec from seeing Ireland.

Now, the Gossip isn't calling the man a saint (he's no Stephen Baldwin) but we're also not calling him a crazed criminal (he's no Daniel Baldwin).

Seriously, the courts are so weak that it makes us wonder what the point of the whole charade is. When it comes to celebrities, the judicial system is seen the way Alec Baldwin thinks of condoms - an unnecessary nuisance.

The best-known Baldwin brother may be a tyrant bastard to fellow actors, but if Kim isn't holding up her end of the parenting bargain, she should be reprimanded. Just like Nicole Richie and operating motor vehicles. You just can't have this stuff going on.


I am in a custody battle with my ex who uses Kim's "devil's gatekeeper lawyer". Have you ever seen Judy Bogen.She is the ugliest woman on the face of this earth even after stomach staple surgery. She should be disbarred. Judge Judy even said so on Larry King. Her whole game plan is to destroy families, not help put them back together.


I believe Ms. Bassinger needs some professional help as well as her husband. When you start using your child in your war games with your ex husband, you have a very serious problem problem. I doubt either "parent" is the "poor victim" - the child is. I wander if custody should be taken away from Ms. Bassinger until they find out exactly what games have been played. She can stop her acting and start being a mother. A child needs both their parents. There are a lot of divorce parents that are able to work out their children's visitation rights. If you are a good parent, you will stop using your daughter and stop installing hate into her soul. Because you "hate" your ex husband why should she? Get some help lady. A this bodyguard nonsence, come on.


If you have ever had your child kept from you because your ex considers them a tug a war rope, you would understand Alec's frustration. Parental alienation is a mean and ugly form of brainwash. Children need BOTH parents, that is the way it was intended. Kim needs to follow the law, just like the rest of us. If she is not held accountable, we will have mothers all over doing the same thing. Alec is not a criminal, just a divorced parent who wants to spend time with his daughter, just like Kim. This current justice system by condoning this behavior is what is messing up our childrens mental state. If they would just make the parents follow the parenting plan or punish them when they dont, you wouldnt see people lose there temper like Alec. I dont condone what he said, but I understand what it is like to have to fight constantly to see your child.


You go, Kim.. Keep Alec away from your daughter as much as possible. All he is doing now is using another tactic of his control issues against you for divorcing him. Now he is using the courts to get even with you. What a sad man., trying to make the mother of his child appear crazy among their peers.


Just because Alec says it's so, doesn't means it's true.
It's either a publicity stunt or a way to continue his torture of Kim. I believe it's the second choice.
