Baldwin dragged Basinger back into court at the beginning on November, claiming she had tried to turn their daughter Ireland against him by violating a court-imposed custody order and denying him access.
And, as the hearing got more personal, Baldwin filed new legal papers on Nov. 14, in which he admitted considering giving up his battle because it was costing him a fortune.
In the documents, obtained by TV news show Extra, Baldwin states, "I have spent over $1 million in custody legal fees."
The actor also accuses Basinger of turning his daughter into a spy, claiming she phones her mother frequently when she's staying with her father--to "report" on his actions. The messy custody case continues. Both parties are expected to face each other in court next month.
