Kim Richards’ adult child placed on psychiatric hold after found naked, talking gibberish in the street

Fans of the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have seen Kim Richards go through some very difficult times over the last few years, including a nuclear falling out with her sister Kyle Richards, a trip to rehab, and a failed relationship with boyfriend Ken Blumenfeld. Today there are reports that Kim’s hardships have continued as one of her four children, who can be seen in the Christmas photo above from 20012 and whose ages range from 18 to early 20s, was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in July after being spotted naked in the street and speaking nonsense by neighbors.

The report comes from Radar Online, who has a “family source” that reveals 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.”

The source goes on to say that the person was released after 72 hours and is now back at home with Kim receiving outpatient treatment that includes seeing a mental health professional. As you would imagine, the event has “stunned Kim and rocked her family,” according to the source.

But Kim is not an island as her sisters Kyle Richards and Kathy Hilton ”have been a very strong source of support and comfort during this latest crisis,” says the source, before adding, “They may fight, but at the end of the day, are a very strong family.”

Radar chose not to identify which child it was. Kim Richards has three daughters named Brooke Brinson, Kimberly Jackson, and Whitney Davis as well as a son, Chad Davis. Here is a great collage of photos of Kim with each of her kids with each of their names to identify them:

Kim Richards children are daughters Brooke Brinson, Whitney Davis, and Kimberly Jackson, and her son is Chad Davis

In the Kim Richards family photo at the top of this post from December, 2012, you can see (from left to right) Whitney Davis, Brooke Brinson, Chad Davis, Kimberly Jackson and Kim Richards.

The source did not reveal if the tragic event would be featured (or even talked about) in the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

We wish Kim Richards and her family all the best, and we hope that whoever it was having troubles is doing better now and is getting the treatment he/she needs to make a permanent recovery.

    Kim does that weird side head turn and coy look to the camera thing that her niece, Paris Hilton annoyingly does.

    I never knew she had four kids by three different men.

      Wow that’s crazy no wonder they all look so different.

  • Hayzii

    She always looks like she is in pain. I thinks it’s the way her eyebrows are angled and her brow is always furled.

  • LindseyS

    Hope her child will be okay.

  • BerryBrite

    Simply cannot stand this crazy nut case. There is diffently something not right with her hard drive….I will sign a petition to get her to take a hike. Kim lives in the 70’s and I can’t believe one person can be so mean girl type. I bet part 3 Kyle brings up the naked story. Can’t wait till next week. O yeah that relationship between sisters is coming to a grinding haylt….lol

      Can I just say you are one insensitive person. Crazy Nut Case? I”m a Mother and Grandmother and you are being overly harsh. Count your blessings if your child(ren) are all fine and have no health or mental issues. For that matter, I hope your mental stability is fine as well. Here is the truth – it is people like you who go on forums and talk nasty about others who do have mental health problems. Yes, it’s apparent Kim has issues as well as one of her children. Just goes to show you money cannot buy everything. I would NEVER make fun of another human being. Yep, Kim put herself out there but does this mean we have to call her mean names?

        She shouldn’t be on TV if she didn’t want to be talked about or judged. It comes with the territory and all the $.
