Beverly Hills housewife Kim Richards has reportedly left an Orange County rehab facility. Although the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was expected to remain in treatment for the coming weeks, a new report claims she suddenly left the facility just days after two of her children came to visit.
On August 24, a source told Radar Online that the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star had fled rehab — and has been missing in action ever since.
“[Kim Richards] decided to leave. She just bolted. The staff has no clue where she went, and it was definitely against medical advice. Her family had just visited over the weekend! Kim said she was cured, and felt good enough to go back to Los Angeles. This is the worst thing Kim could do at this point because she has a court appearance this week for being drunk in public at the Beverly Hills Hotel.”
After her Beverly Hills Hotel arrest in April of this year, Richards, who was allegedly booted from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills soon after her arrest, entered a rehab facility, but stayed for just weeks in order to fly to Mexico to attend her daughter’s wedding. In the months since, she was reportedly re-entered treatment at least twice.
Most recently, the Beverly Hills reality star was believed to have entered a rehab center in Orange County after being released from a 5150 hold earlier this month due to her second 2015 arrest for shoplifting.
“Kim is her own worst enemy. She is going to end up dead if she doesn’t get serious about this!”
Sadly, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star appears to be heading in the wrong direction, and there’s not much her family can do about it. Although they were reportedly able to have her placed on a psychiatric hold earlier this month, the hold lasted just 72 hours, and now, she’s free to do as she pleases.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Richards allegedly received a visit from her family just days ago, prior to her sudden exit from the facility. According to a Radar Online report, the Beverly Hills housewife’s son, Chad David, and one of her daughters who wasn’t named, paid Richards a visit, as Monty Brinson, her ex-husband, was forced to stay home due to his ongoing battle with cancer.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 6 is expected to premiere later this year on Bravo.
