Baldwin filed court papers against former wife Basinger Monday in a custody battle, claiming Basinger "has a pathological need" to turn their daughter
It's a pity that the former couple, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger, has to end their sweet memories in the court over a custody battle. They, who used to love each other and got married on Aug. 19, 1993, now facing one another to win the custody of their only daughter Ireland Eliesse.
Monday Baldwin filed court papers against his former wife, claiming she "has a pathological need" to turn their daughter against him. Thus he asked for a psychological evaluation of Basinger. Baldwin who didn't attend the hearing was represented by his lawyer, Vicki Greene, who said "Ms. Basinger has so contaminated this child now that she doesn't even want to be with her father."
Basinger's attorney, Neal Hersh, representing the actress as she declined to comment further, said "We believe that Mr. Baldwin has severe emotional problems. Mr. Baldwin's lawyers attempted to cast terrible aspersions toward Kim rather than focusing on the main issue, which is his daughter." They scheduled to return to court on December 13.
