(Newser) – A savage voicemail from Alec Baldwin to his 11-year-old daughter Ireland is burning up the Web, thanks to the bitter battle between the "30 Rock" star and his ex-wife Kim Basinger. The recording, in which the furious actor calls his daughter a "thoughtless little pig," was leaked to TMZ .

Enraged because she missed his appointed call, Baldwin threatens to fly to LA just to "straighten your ass out" and says her age—and her thoughtless mother—are no excuse. Basinger turned the tape over to a judge, who temporarily suspended Baldwin's visitation rights. Friends say he's since apologized to Ireland, and blames Basinger for the leak.
