Ireland Baldwin has checked into rehab, but JustJaredJr.com can confirm it was not for substance abuse and partying, as has been reported by several outlets.
The 19-year-old model voluntarily checked herself into rehab after experiencing a mental breakdown due to accumulated stress, which happened after she was admitted to the hospital last week for cervical cysts. She had assumed it was appendicitis at first.
“The establishment that Ireland checked into is where a lot of people in her family have gone to get sober,” a source close to Ireland exclusively told JJ. “She’s known the people there for a long time and they’re like family to her. She needed a safe place to stay and get away for awhile and now she’s receiving the intensive therapy and treatment she needs.”
Ireland also recently went through a break-up with her longtime girlfriend, rapper Angel Haze.
“The split really hurt Ireland,” our source adds. “She’s been going through depression and anxiety but now using this time to heal through all the pain.”
