Alec Baldwin's daughter Ireland attacked by woman 'high out of mind on drugs'

Alec Baldwin’s daughter Ireland has warned people to stay vigilant after she was attacked by a woman who was ‘high out of her mind’ on drugs.

The 24-year-old shared pictures of her bruised face after being mugged and ‘decked’ by the woman in an incident in New York City on Friday.

The model wrote: ‘Yesterday in the late afternoon, I was attacked by a woman who was high out of her mind on drugs and desperate for cash. She decked me in my face in a parking lot and took my belongings and jumped in a getaway car while her husband took off. 

‘All was sorted with the police and she was arrested. Luckily I had witnesses and got assisted really quickly.’

Ireland – whose mother is Kim Basinger – continued: ‘The cops told me this is happening frequently because people are desperate for money right now due to Coronavirus and people being out of work. There is a lot of theft and muggings going down. 

‘Posting this to remind everyone to be really careful and watch your surroundings. These are really difficult times and we need to look out for one another.’

Yesterday in the late afternoon, I was attacked by a woman who was high out of her mind on drugs and desperate for cash. She decked me in my face in a parking lot and took my belongings and jumped in a getaway car while her husband took off. All was sorted with the police and she was arrested. Luckily I had witnesses and got assisted really quickly. The cops told me this is happening frequently because people are desperate for money right now due to Coronavirus and people being out of work. There is a lot of theft and muggings going down.

In the attached pictures, Ireland sported a dark bruise on her right cheekbone.

Her stepmother Hilaria Baldwin was among those who commented on the post, writing: ‘I’m so glad you are safe now. We love you.’

The scary attack came just after Ireland celebrated six years ‘free of anorexia and bulimia’.

The Grudge Match star previously battled with an eating disorder, and marked six years since her recovery programme in an Instagram video.

She said: ‘Today marks six years that I have been free of anorexia and bulimia and all of my other food compulsion and eating disorders that I struggled through for many years.

‘And today marks six years. So, you can do it.’

Ireland is the only child of Alec, 62, and Kim, 66, who were married from 1993 until 2002, and is the niece of Stephen, Daniel and William Baldwin and the cousin of Hailey Baldwin.

While she is now a model, DJ and actress, Ireland first gained worldwide attention when she was just 11 when a voicemail her dad left for her went public.

In the angry message, the 30 Rock actor called the child a ‘rude, thoughtless little pig’ – and last year, Ireland mocked the scandal as she joined in on a roast of Baldwin, in which she joked that her favourite bedtime story was ‘the three little thoughtless pigs’. 

While Ireland admits there is still distance with her father, she recently shared that the death of basketball star Kobe Bryant made her appreciate her relationship with Baldwin more.

She told Entertainment Tonight: ‘In light of recent events that have happened within the last couple of weeks, like with Kobe, it’s like, “What’s the f***ing point of arguing?” Like, there’s no point.

‘Let’s all just get over it and hug that person that you love. You never know what’s going to happen to somebody and it all comes down to love. Nothing else matters.’
