This is so sad!
One of Kim Richards' adult children was previously taken to the hospital after neighbors spotted the unknown person running through the streets naked and speaking nonsense.
We don't know which one of her children was involved, but he or she was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold which means the hospital chose how long their stay was.
“[Neighbors] called the police in July after Kim’s child was naked in the street, and talking gibberish. Kim’s child was deemed to be a danger to themselves, and to others, and was taken to the hospital and placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold.”
This sudden news was absolutely shocking for the Real Housewife star and apparently she did not see this coming at all!
Thankfully the adult was released from the involuntary psychiatric hold after 72 hours and is back home with Kim and her family.
Here's what a source said:
“This has stunned Kim and rocked her family. The patient was released after 72 hours and has been at home with Kim, and continues to get outpatient treatment, including the help of a mental health professional. [Her sisters] have been a very strong source of support and comfort during this latest crisis. They may fight, but at the end of the day, are a very strong family. Kim and their relative are being looked after, and will come through this. It won’t be easy, but they have each other, and that is all that matters."
We're glad Kim is reunited with her kid, and we're sure they can overcome this with a lot of love and determination!
Best of luck to this family.
