‘anyone wanna give me just one song during their set? You can be Kenny and I can be Dolly and we can do Islands In The Stream? LMK.’ 

The post comes several days after Ireland opened up about her painful past, including entering rehab after an abusive relationship and struggling with substance use, during a wide-ranging interview on Red Table Talk.  

She also discussed her relationship with her father Alec Baldwin and admitted he was not the ideal person to turn to when it came to her anxiety.

‘I’ve been through so much before I really got help,’ Ireland told Willow Smith. ‘I was in a really abusive relationship and I did go to a treatment center. So I’ve been through a lot of different kinds of abuse, I have been in physical abusive relationships, and for so long I didn’t want to call, just like I didn’t want to call my anxiety anxiety, I didn’t want to call the forms of abuse I had been through in a lot of ways.’

‘I had been abusive to people. Unknowingly, because I’m not hitting them or I’m not getting physical, but there was a lot of learning I had to do and a lot of acceptance of “Okay wait, that was abusive behavior.” I was an abuser towards someone else. But, at that time, I just hit a total breaking point,’ Ireland said. 

‘And I was self-medicating with Xanax and I was drinking, and I have a lot of alcoholism and drug addiction in my family,’ Ireland explained. ‘I had a night where I went way too far with the drinking and taking pills ’cause I couldn’t even go to bed at night, I was so afraid of this relationship,’ she said.

‘When I went into this drug and alcohol treatment center, I learned that I didn’t have an addiction to a substance, but I have an addiction to wanting to fix people. That’s my addiction. I’d fixate on anything until it shatters everything around me.’

‘That relationship had brought a lot of shady people into my life. I had isolated all of my real friends, isolated my family. I had no control in anything in my life. I tortured myself with my eating disorders that I had. 

‘I didn’t talk to my parents for like a year,’ she said. ‘I saw them here and there but I was so ashamed of what I had become and how I was living. 

‘I just became this different person. I was like emaciated in every way. I was lifeless. And I don’t mean in a literal skinny way, but just my soul, everything was just shrunk.’ 

Ireland says it was her cousin Alaia who ‘saved’ her life.

‘She was the one who booked the ticket from New York and came to L.A. to see me. She was like, “Something’s up. I sense something,”‘ Baldwin said. 

‘She saved my life. I think I would have committed suicide, or I would have been dead for sure. I was so close. I could feel it getting to that point. And she saved my life. She pulled me out of it.’ 

Ireland, who was appearing on the program with her mother Kim Basinger, also discussed her relationship with her father.

The model explained her father was not the best person to talk to her about her mental health issues. 

Instead, she speaks with her mother Kim, who has struggled with agoraphobia.

‘She’s definitely my go-to person,’ she said. ‘She’s the one I call when I’m panicking… when it’s starting to build up.’

Ireland said her father was raised in a family that ‘suppressed’ their feelings or looked down on discussing them.

‘He can’t really sympathize as much with it, but it’s not his fault. But he’s gotten way better,’ she explained.

‘I think he really suppressed his anxiety up until recently,’ she added. ‘He’s really been dealing with things that kind of have been thrown at him. He’s been forced to finally deal with these things.’

Kim agreed her ex was not ‘available’ for such conversations.

‘We’re all fine, we all get along, whatever. But he’s a challenge. I mean, come on. We’ve had our challenges,’ she said. ‘I don’t think Alec was emotionally or mentally available for that kind of talk. Alec operates in a very different way in his life.’
