Angry Baldwin Loses Visitation Rights Over Phone Rant

Los Angeles County Superior Court commissioner MAREN NELSON has reportedly suspended ALEC BALDWIN's visitation rights to his 11-year-old daughter after hearing an angry answer machine message in which the actor calls the pre-teen a "rude, thoughtless little pig". Furious Baldwin unleashed a rant of threats and insults aimed at daughter Ireland and her mother Kim Basinger after calling his kid in Los Angeles from New York and finding she had switched her phone off. During the three-minute blast, which has been leaked on the internet by, the Pearl Harbor star calls his ex-wife Basinger "a thoughtless pain in the ass," and threatens to "straighten your ass out" on an upcoming one-day visit, which was, at the time, planned for later today (20Apr07). claims the call was made on 11 April (07) and when Ireland wasn't around for the scheduled phone chat, her father flew into a rage. He fumed, "Once again, I have made an ass of myself trying to get to a phone... You have insulted me for the last time." He continued, "This c**p you pull on me with this goddamn phone situation that you would never dream of doing to your mother, and you do it to me constantly over and over again." Before hanging up, Baldwin warned the child, "You better be ready Friday the 20th to meet with me." After suspending his visitation rights, Commissioner Nelson set a new court hearing for Baldwin (04May07). Baldwin's lawyer, Viki Roberts, tells, "Whatever happened yesterday was sealed and confidential. What you're telling me you've got you shouldn't have."
