Hailey Baldwin‘s cousin Ireland Baldwin recently checked herself into rehab for “emotional trauma”!
The 19-year-old model slammed rumors that she was in rehab for “partying” by taking to Twitter and writing, “I checked myself into Soba for two weeks to just get away for a little bit. I’m not much 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.”
We think it’s nice that Ireland explained her situation to her fans herself. And even though she’s not ready to talk about specifics, she definitely gave some incite into the pain she’s been feeling.
Luckily, Ireland has a strong family support system and they’ve been by her side through everything.

Hailey even tweeted:
My whole family and I love Ireland and support her endlessly and are here for her through this time.

We hope that Ireland continues to take the time she needs to recover and knows that her fans are incredibly proud of her decision to work on herself.
