Mel Gibson may resemble Saddam Hussein. Alec Baldwin has also been likened to the former Iraqi dictator by some, though, and a recording we posted yesterday didn't exactly dispel rumors of the actor's tyrannical ways.

In case you missed it, Baldwin unleashed a tirade of threats, insults and general rage against on his 11-year-old daughter, Ireland, on her voicemail after she failed to answer his scheduled call from New York April 11.

The clip, obtained by TMZ, and which you can listen to HERE, pretty much speaks for itself. But in the past 12 hours, The Hollywood Gossip staff has learned of the following updates to the story:

UPDATE #1: On Wednesday of this week, Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner Maren Nelson heard the voicemail tirade and has temporarily suspended Baldwin's visitation rights. A hearing is set for May 4, where the judge could permanently deny Alec Baldwin visitation or contact with Ireland.

UPDATE #2: Kim Basinger's publicist, Annette Wolfe, has released a statement, stating simply: "The voicemail speaks for itself."

UPDATE #3: A friend of Alec Baldwin's has spoken out on the matter, saying that the actor called Ireland last week and apologized for his outburst. The friend added that Ireland is the most important thing in the world to Alec and that he is frustrated because over the last six years, Basinger has "tried everything" to alienate Ireland from him.

UPDATE #4: Alec Baldwin's spokesperson officially released the following statement to the TV show Extra:

"In the best interest of the child, Alec Baldwin will do what Ireland's mother is pathologically incapable of doing ... keeping his mouth shut and obeying the court order. The mother and her lawyer leaked this sealed material in violation of a court order. Although Alec acknowledges that he should have used different language in parenting his child, everyone who knows him privately knows what he has been put through for the past six years."

There are alot worse things that he could of done than just yell at her. It isn't like any other parent has flipped out at one time over something their child has done to frustrate them. Then add a ex in the mix.

ALEC BALDWIN IS A TOTAL ASS. ANY PARENT WHO WOULD TALK TO THEIR 11 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER THE WAY THAT HE DID SHOULD HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO CONTACT WITH THAT CHILD. TODAYS CHILDREN FACE ENOUGH AND HIS VERBAL ATTACK WAS TOTALLY APPALLING AND WILL REQUIRE THAT CHILD TO HAVE COUNSELING FOR ANY HOPE OF NORMALCY. THE WAY THAT HE SPOKE TO HER IS NOTHING LESS THAN CHILD ABUSE. kIM MAY HAVE HER PROBLEMS BUT AT LEAST SHE'S TRYING TO KEEP HER CHILD MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY SAFE. I AM SO ANGRY THAT THIS TYRANT OF A MAN WOULD TALK TO A CHILD IN TE MANNER THAT HE DID. EVERYONE WONDERS WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THIS WORLD, WELL THIS IS CERTAINLY ONE INSTANCE OF AN ADULT TOTALLY RIPPING A CHILDS LIFE AWAY FROM HER AT A VERY DIFFICULT AGE FOR A LITTLE GIRL AS IT IS.
