Ireland Baldwin has checked herself into rehab in Malibu to "deal with some emotional trauma" -- but she's been spending some of her time there getting the world straight about why she made the move.
The 19-year-old model tweeted about her current situation Monday after a story surfaced alleging that Kim Basinger had checked her daughter into a treatment center last Thursday because she'd been "partying non-stop."
"'Intensive partying' haha," said Baldwin, whose dad is Alec Baldwin and whose attitude toward going to rehab had been described by a Radar Online source as "kicking and screaming."
Ireland begged to differ.
"Apparently I'm in rehab for intensive partying soooo I'm just going to lay pretty low for a bit and maybe get some frozen yogurt," she said in a series of tweets Monday afternoon. "I checked myself into Soba [Recovery Center] for two weeks to just get away for a little bit. I'm not much a party cat but I am here deal with some emotional trauma and getting the intensive therapy I needed in order to recover."
She continued: "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."
Oh yeah, she's also been reading.
A source told People magazine that Baldwin's stay was neither drug-related nor involuntary.
"She's just been in some tough situations lately," the source told the magazine, "and it's gotten a bit stressful and overwhelming, so she's just being proactive."
Baldwin had more words for her fans on Tuesday morning.
"There has never been a time where I haven't been honest with my fans & the people who have supported and loved me since day one," she tweeted.
