The pressure keeps building for Kim Richards. As the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star continues to field accusations about her own sobriety and mental health, RadarOnline.com has learned that one of her children has been admitted to a psychiatric facility!
Richards is mom to Kimberly, 21, Chad, 22, Whitney, 24, and Brooke, 29, with exes Monty Brinson and Gregg Davis. Radar has chosen not to identify the individual receiving treatment.
The adult "was admitted over the weekend to a psychiatric facility in the South Bay area of Los Angeles," an insider told Radar.
"This wasn't an involuntary psychiatric hold, but it came very close," the source said. "The individual has battled with depression for years and it's unclear at this point how long they'll have to remain in the hospital. This is obviously very, very hard for Kim."
“While everyone hates to see a child continue to struggle, Kim's friends are even more concerned for her well-being," the source said.
Though sister Kyle "has always been there to support Kim in times of need," according to the source, the pair's recent feuding, as reported by Radar, "has really taken a toll on her."
Kim and Kyle have been at odds ever since her pit bull, Kingsley, bit Kyle's daughter, Alexia, earlier this year.
As Radar exclusively reported last week, the sisters' fighting erupted during taping of the RHOBH reunion.
In addition, ongoing questions about Kim's sobriety have been lingering since she appeared on recent episodes of RHOBH, slurring her words. She admitted to taking a pain pill prescribed to her cancer-stricken ex-husband, Monty.
Said the source, "To say people are concerned about Kim is an understatement. She is extremely vulnerable right now and is just existing on autopilot."
