LOS ANGELES – Alec Baldwin’s attorneys filed paperwork in Los Angeles Superior Court this morning asking a judge to hold a hearing to uncover the source of a leaked voicemail message the actor left his daughter Ireland.
On Thursday, TMZ.com posted a two minute clip on their website where Baldwin was heard berating his daughter for not accepting a scheduled telephone call. On the tape, in addition to being heard in a distressed tone over his daughter not answering, he refers to the 11-year-old as a “rude, thoughtless, little pig.”
In today’s filing, Baldwin’s attorney Vicki J. Greene claims that Kim Basinger or her “employees agents or attorneys” are the only possible sources of the leaked tape. Greene further accuses Basinger or her associates of leaking the information “to the press intentionally.”
The filing asks the court to determine whether there are grounds to hold Basinger in contempt of court.
