Alec Baldwin Blows Up At Kim Basinger - Again

ALEC BALDWIN has ruined any chances of reconciling with KIM BASINGER - after verbally abusing her in public.

According to America's STAR, the hot-headed superstar created a disturbing scene earlier this year (09JUN01) while their young daughter, IRELAND, looked on helplessly.

An onlooker says, "Alec wouldn't let up. He was in Kim's face berating her right in front of their frightened daughter. It was a shocking display of their runaway temper. "

Friends say that for months Baldwin has been trying to reconcile with the Nine 1/2 Weeks (1986) star and flew to los Angeles to try and patch things up.

A witness who overheard the couple at a restaurant in the city says, "Over lunch Alec asked Kim point blank if they could get back together. Kim said an emphatic 'No' because of Alec's uncontrollable temper. Kim thought it best they remain apart and proceed with the divorce. " The witness confides, "It was not the response he wanted to hear, he went ballistic and became his usual bullying self. " (MB/TS/PDD)
