Kim Richards is reportedly in rehab after coming up missing after her daughter’s wedding in Mexico. Following Brooke Brinson’s May 23 nuptials, Richards was expected to return to rehab. However, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star remained MIA for nearly two weeks after her arrival to Mexico, and failed to miss the alleged deadline, which was scheduled for May 25.
Luckily, in the days since, Kim Richards appears to have finally flown back to Los Angeles and reentered treatment. On June 2, two sources close to the 50-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star confirmed to E! News that Kim Richards was back in rehab.
“She’s doing ok, a lot better than she had been.”
According to E! News‘ source, Kim Richards has been in treatment for the last few days, but the facility where she is currently is not the same one as she checked into in late April.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Kim Richards’ absence after Mexico led to quite a lot of headlines, most of which proclaimed news of her refusing to return to rehab in lieu of some wild nights in Mexico. In the latest report, shared by Radar Online earlier this week, Kim Richards’ Mexican vacation was exposed.
“Kim came back from Cabo last week but is refusing to go back to rehab. She suffered a huge relapse at the wedding, and was mixing booze and pills. However, Kim is refusing to go back to rehab.
Kim has been in contact with sister’s Kyle and Kathy, but both siblings are obviously very concerned about her. There is only so much the family can do for Kim, and refusing to get help is a big obstacle.”
Kim Richards’ family was in Mexico with her, attending Brinson’s wedding as well, but while most of the party returned to Los Angeles after a farewell brunch the following day, the reality star and mother of four continued on with her alleged drinking binge.
Kim Richards is clearly struggling with her addiction, and has been for months. As she revealed on Dr. Phil in April, her demons returned during filming on the fifth season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and were further exaggerated after the show’s reunion.
Following her relapse months ago, Kim Richards was arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel and charged with public intoxication, resisting an officer, and battery on an officer. She is due in court next week to address the pending charges against her.
