Alec Baldwin was hospitalized and quickly released due a misunderstanding according to his rep. WNBC
reports that his daughter, Ireland called 911 when she couldn’t rouse her dad. They added when the medics got there, he agreed to go to the hospital where he was examined and released in about an hour. His rep told the NY affil, “This was a misunderstanding on one person’s part,” spokesman Matthew Hiltzik said on Baldwin’s behalf. “Alec was quickly released from the hospital, he’s completely fine and will be at work today.” Notice his publicist only said today, I wonder if his brief hospitalization will effect his Oscar hosting duties on March 7th?
While WNBC reported that the hospitalization was because Ireland couldn’t wake her dad, AP
is reporting this, “The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. The official said Baldwin and his young daughter had argued and she told 911 he had threatened to take pills.” Alec and his daughter are no strangers to confrontations, but for now we should consider the AP report just a rumor.
