Just hours after RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed that Ireland Baldwin had entered rehab in Malibu, the actress took to her Twitter to confirm the news herself in an emotional post.
"I checked myself into Soba for two weeks to just get away for a little bit," she wrote. (Radar had chosen not to name the facility.)
Despite claims from insiders that her out-of-control partying in recent weeks caused her parents to intervene, Baldwin insisted, "I’m not much of a party cat but I am here to deal with some emotional trauma and getting the intensive therapy I needed in order to recover."
"Someday I’ll feel ready to share my story openly without feeling the way I do. Right now I just needed a breather. I needed a chance to work on myself and gather all the tools …"
"I need to overcome everything that I had been through and rid myself of all the pain I locked away in unreachable places."
Radar was first to report that Baldwin and her mother, Kim Basinger, were spotted checking into the luxurious facility on Friday after she completed intake work on Thursday.
She had told fans earlier in the week that she would be skipping the infamous Coachella music festival.
