Alec Baldwin Suicide Voicemail
June 2, 2014 by staff
Alec Baldwin Suicide Voicemail, Alec Baldwin admitted he considered suicide after his infamous voicemail rant to his daughter was made public.
The 30 Rock actor, 50, was humiliated when a voicemail he had left for his then-11-year-old daughter Ireland, in which he called her a ‘rude, thoughtless, little pig’, was leaked onto the internet.
Baldwin left the message when Ireland did not answer her phone during a court-appointed pre-arranged phonecall.
In an extract from his book A Promise To Ourselves, Baldwin writes: ‘Driving up the Taconic Parkway, heading to an inn in the Berkshire Mountains, I began to think about what little town I would repair to in order to commit suicide.
‘What semi-remote Massachusetts state park could I hike deep into and overdose there?
‘When I returned to New York, the thought of jumping out the window of my apartment was with me every night for weeks.’
Despite his despair, Baldwin says his love for his daughter stopped him doing anything.
He writes: ‘I love my daughter with all my heart.’
Describing his angry message, Baldwin said: ‘She was off for spring break with her mother and her phone was turned off for 10 consecutive days … This had gone on for years now and … when the beep came, I snapped.’
The actor and his ex-wife Kim Basinger had been battling for custody of their daughter since their 2002 divorce after nine years of marriage.
During their marriage the couple lived in New York, but after their split Basinger took Ireland to live in Los Angeles, while Baldwin continued to remain in the Big Apple.
Baldwin went to court claiming the L.A. Confidential actress had breached their custody arrangement, by blocking his visitation rights.
After the tape was made public, Baldwin publicly apologised to his daughter, explaining his inappropriate message was due to being ‘driven to the edge’ by his custody battle with Basinger.
He wrote on his web site: ‘I have a normal relationship with my daughter.
