Basinger in Court, Media Out

Kim Basinger went to court today for all the Alec Baldwin drama. After a speech to the courtroom Judge Nelson decided to kick the media out of the courtroom.

"I recognize there is significant media interest in this matter...the voicemail that came out of this hearing has been broadcast widely. I'm aware the public is interested in this case because both parties are well known actors. The issue, though, before the court is what is in the best interest of a very young, 11, child...the overriding mental health of the minor overcomes the right to public access in this case."

Alec Baldwin's attorney, Vicki Greene, made the following statement in court:

"[Alec] is a wonderful father, he loves Ireland. He is just a great person and a great dad. I don't know if all the issues will be resolved today but I know the communication will be improved. Alec's concerns right now are to have the best relationship with his daughter."
