Ireland Baldwin: from model to crook?
As the Woolsey fire continues to devastate Malibu, California, A-listers continue to update fans on the status of their neighborhoods, homes and loved ones. This Sunday, Ireland Baldwin, 23, took to Twitter to reveal both a tragedy and a bizarre story.
Apart from announcing that her mother was one of the many who lost her home to the scorching flames, the star also admitted that police accused her of looting when they caught her trying to gather some of her belongings from her own home.
“Yesterday I spent all day long trying to get back to my place in Malibu to gather a couple of my things before the winds were expected to pick back up,” Alec Baldwin‘s eldest daughter tweeted.
“An officer at a back way entrance to one of the main canyons that take you over to Malibu stopped us and refused to let us in because I don’t have my Malibu address on my ID,” she continued.
Ireland is just one of the many celebrities who’ve had to evacuate from their mansions due to the devastating fire. As of now, 44 people have been reported dead and hundreds are still missing.
“Not only was he a d**k, but he had 0 compassion and he literally accused us of being looters and threatened us that we were going to be arrested if we kept giving him trouble,” added the furious bombshell on Twitter. “I understand that he was doing his job, but in times like this when people are losing loved ones and losing their homes, the least you can do is show compassion and be as kind as you can even if you can’t help them.”
Aside from her Twitter rant, Ireland shared the sad news that mom Kim Basinger’s home was one of the many burned to the ground by the overpowering flames.
“So many friends and friends and family of friends are losing everything they own in these fires,” she shared. “My mom and her partner lost their Malibu home in #Woolseyfire and thankfully, they are both safe.”
As Radar readers know, Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Camille Grammer also lost their homes to the fire. And This Sunday, Kim Kardashian — who almost had to mourn the loss of her own mansion — made a touching speech thanking all the firefighters and first responders for their enormous help during the massive natural disaster.
