I've heard Bassinger described as "having more neurosis than an inbred poodle", but is Baldwin just getting unkind??Actor Alec Baldwin filed court papers against former wife Kim Basinger Monday in a custody battle, claiming Basinger "has a pathological need" to turn their daughter against him.
Baldwin is seeking a psychological evaluation of Basinger.
"Ms. Basinger has so contaminated this child now that she doesn't even want to be with her father," Baldwin lawyer Vicki Greene told Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Maren Nelson. Baldwin did not attend the hearing.
Basinger attended the hearing but declined to comment inside or outside of the courtroom.
LOS ANGLES (AP) - Actors Alec Baldwin and ex-wife Kim Basinger traded personal jabs through their attorneys Monday, with each claiming amid a custody dispute that the other has serious emotional problems.
In court papers, Baldwin claimed Basinger "has a pathological need" to turn their daughter against him, and he is asking for a psychological evaluation of the actress. Baldwin lawyer Vicki Greene argued in a court hearing Monday that Basinger had tainted 10-year-old Ireland's view of her father.
Basinger's attorney, Neal Hersh, dismissed the claim and said Baldwin was the problem.
"We believe that Mr. Baldwin has severe emotional problems," Hersh said. "Mr. Baldwin's lawyers attempted to cast terrible aspersions toward Kim rather than focusing on the main issue, which is his daughter."
Baldwin was not at the hearing, which discussed his telephone time with his daughter and whether Baldwin should get an extra weekend with her when a holiday is interrupted by a court-ordered custody hearing.
