The release of actor Alec Baldwin’s voicemail tape when he abuses his 11-year-old daughter was not made by his former wife, the actress Kim Basinger according to a spokeswoman.
Reuters report that Annett Wolf, issued a statement on Monday denying the actress released the voice mail, when Baldwin called his daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig” and said the recording was “not sealed under a court order.”
“Kim did hire security in response to the media attention on her daughter in order to allow Ireland to maintain her regular routine and activities uninterrupted,” Wolf said.
The website TMZ reported that a Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner temporarily suspended Baldwin’s visitation rights last week after hearing the tape. Baldwin has been ordered to stay away from his daughter pending a hearing on May 4.
Representatives for Basinger, 53, who won the Oscar for her supporting role in the 1997 film “L.A. Confidential,” declined to comment on that report, and Baldwin’s lawyer was not immediately available for comment.
Baldwin, who has been involved in a bitter custody dispute with Basinger since their 2002 divorce, blamed her for the leak on Friday. He also apologized on his own Web site for “losing my temper with my child.”
“I have been driven to the edge by parental alienation for many years now,” Baldwin wrote.
