Kim Richards was reportedly a “mess” at her daughter Brooke’s weekend wedding to Thayer Wiederhorn in Mexico. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Richards, who was arrested in April for being drunk in public and allegedly hitting a police officer, was allowed to leave a rehab facility in California to attend the wedding with a sober coach; however, she was apparently under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the nuptials, and now Brooke is no longer speaking to her mom.

Not only that, but Richards’ sober coach reportedly quit right after the wedding and left the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star behind in Mexico, though she was supposed to return to rehab on Monday. Right after the wedding, Richards was “belligerent” to Wiederhorn’s parents and her own daughter, reports TMZ. It’s being speculated that whatever impaired Richards must have been taken in private because no one saw her drinking at the wedding. As Gossip Cop noted, among the guests were Brooke’s cousins, Paris and Nicky Hilton, who were bridesmaids. The father of the bride, Richards’ ex-husband Monty Brinson, could not attend the destination wedding since he has terminal cancer.

When Richards returns to the U.S., she still has a court date ahead of her, stemming from her drunken arrest. She could face up to two and a half years in jail for the slew of charges, including resisting arrest and battery on a police officer.
