I'd hate to be the
star's PR person right about now. After his and ex-wife Kim Basinger's daughter, Ireland, 11, missed his scheduled call the morning of April 11, he left her what can only be described as a disturbing voicemail message which TMZ.com obtained and printed. "I don't give a damn that you're... a child or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn't care about what you do," he reportedly railed. "You've made me feel like [doody].... You better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me." After hearing the tirade, a judge immediately revoked Baldwin's visitation rights; on May 4, his future visitation rights, if any, will be decided by the court. In response, a Baldwin rep issued this statement to
: "In the best interest of the child, Alec will do what the 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."
