The bad blood between exes Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger re-surfaced Thursday when an angry phone message from Baldwin to his daughter Ireland, 11, was made public. On the recording, Baldwin can be heard berating his 11-year-old, Ireland, “You are a rude, thoughtless little pig.” TMZ.com has the message click HERE to hear it

“You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being,” he says, apparently upset that she did not answer her phone for a planned call.
“I don’t give a damn that you’re 12 years old, or 11 years old, or that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do as far as I’m concerned. You have humiliated me for the last time with this phone.”
He goes on to say that he plans to fly from New York to Los Angeles “for the day just to straighten you out on this issue.”
The recording was published by celebrity news site TMZ.com, which said that the call was placed on April 11.
Baldwin’s spokesman said in a statement Thursday that, “in the best interest of the child,” the 49-year-old actor “will do what the mother is pathologically incapable of doing … keeping his mouth shut and obeying the court order.
“The mother and her lawyer leaked this sealed material in violation of a court order,” the statement continued. “Although Alec acknowledges that he should have used different language in parenting his child, everyone who knows him privately knows what he has been put through for the past six years.”
“The voice mail speaks for itself,” Basinger’s spokeswoman said.
