Days after The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards was reportedly admitted to a UCLA hospital following a “downward spiral,” the reality star was spotted in Bel-Air. According to insiders, she left the hospital against her doctor’s advice.
Kim, 54, was spotted at the Beverly Glen Center with her business partner Michael London. She wore a lightweight leopard print blouse and white jeans.
Though the mom of four was all smiles on her shopping trip, days earlier her behavior resulted in a visit to the emergency room.
A source told Us Weekly that Kim’s daughter Brooke Wiederhorn had been ”watching her mom in a downward spiral for weeks," and urged her to check into the hospital.
However, Kim’s medical treatment didn’t last for very long. “Kim abruptly left against medical advice,” the insider told Us. “No one could find Kim for hours, so Brooke reached out to more family. All of Kim’s kids are concerned,” the source said. “Not just Brooke.” Kim is also mom to Whitney, 29, Kimberly, 24 and son Chad, 28.
While at the hospital, Kim was reportedly “ incoherent, rambling and seemed to be having a serious mental health breakdown of sorts.” Though doctors were able to perform a toxicology screening, she left before receiving further treatment.
Another source told Us Weekly that Kim’s sister Kyle has also stepped in to help her sister. “Kyle became aware that Kim was struggling in recent weeks and got extremely concerned based on what she was hearing,” the source said.
“Kyle isn’t a doctor and can’t make that determination, which is why she is trying to get Kim into treatment,” the insider added.
Kim’s entertainment lawyer and manager told Us that she is “fine” and is busy “working on a big project.”
