Kim Richards, who was arrested earlier this month for public intoxication, trespass, battery and resisting arrest, has re-entered rehab, a source confirms to Gossip Cop. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is seeking treatment at a center in Malibu.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the star was arrested on April 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel, after she was allegedly acting belligerent and barricading herself inside a bathroom. Police came and forcibly removed the reality star, who allegedly kicked one cop.

Richards recently stormed out of a Dr. Phil interview after he confronted her about her alcohol abuse. She told the TV personality that she was “beating myself up over this.” At a certain point, after Dr. Phil grilled her more about her problems with booze, Richards’ kids joined on-set her for the interview. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star suddenly got upset, and asked, “Is this an intervention?” She then emotionally stormed out of the interview in tears, saying, “I’m sorry, I can’t!”

As Gossip Cop has noted in the past, Richard has had a history of alcohol abuse, and previously checked into rehab in 2011 for help. She has also been seen in episodes of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” struggling with her problem. Gossip Cop will have more information when it becomes available.
