Alec Baldwin Questions Kim Basinger's Mental Health

Oct 31, 2005 | 6:46am EST

Alec Baldwin's custody battle with Kim Basinger over their daughter Ireland has taken another nasty turn, with the actor raising questions about his ex-wife's mental health.

In new court papers obtained by entertainment website TMZ.com, Baldwin claims Basinger needs therapy and has a "pathological need" to alienate their 10-year-old daughter from him.

Attorney Harvey Levin, managing editor of TMZ.com, says, "Alec says Kim tried to block him from flying with their daughter because Kim said she was better able to protect her from terrorists at the airport....

"Alec graduated from (New York University) but he says Kim thinks he's not capable of helping Ireland with her fourth grade homework." Today, the former couple will try to settle their ongoing custody battle and resolve other bitter claims, including Baldwin's request, calling for a "psychological evaluation of her mental state and fitness to parent."

Baldwin and Basinger divorced in 2002, after a nine-year marriage.
