As we previously reported, former RHOBH star Kim Richards spent 48 hours in a hospital earlier this month for mental health concerns. After allegedly fleeing the hospital, and refusing treatment, her condition only seems to be getting worse.
“Kim was advised that she needed to continue treatment, but ultimately decided not to stay, and left,” the source claimed. “Kim’s four children are absolutely heartsick about her tragic situation. She is spiraling out of control. She has said she doesn’t remember the events leading up to her shoplifting arrest!”
The insider claims that Richards’ family is pushing her to go back to rehab, but that she is refusing. “She is absolutely refusing. The family just doesn’t know what to do, and are afraid something horrible is going to happen to her.”
“The family believes that Kim has three options,” a source told RadarOnline after her most recent arrest. “1. She goes back to rehab. 2. She’s put on a 5150 hold. 3. She could end up hospitalized from alcohol poisoning or pill overdose.”
The source added, “Kim is a ticking time bomb, and her kids just hope she is in a safe place when she hits rock bottom, and will be able to recover from it.”
