ALEC BALDWIN LASHES AT BASINGER

Mean and angry Hollywood star Alec Baldwin is launching a scathing attack on his ex-wife Kim Basinger and is accusing her of alienating him from their young daughter. The former happy couple is in the middle of a very long-running custody battle over their 12-year-old daughter Ireland, and Baldwin is livid at Basinger for allegedly trying to turn the child against him. In this week's New Yorker, he asks, "Think I'm walking stiffly? Yeah, there's a 120lb actress on my back. "Parental alienation is about people who narcissistically project their whole reality on to a child: 'I don't need you, so the child doesn't need you'. The goal of the alienating parent is to kill contiguous time. People need reliability. They need regularity. And I've been the victim of a campaign to kill all of that." The star couple divorced after nine years of marriage in 2002. He adds, "You end up being more an uncle than a father."
