Times are tough for Kim Richards.
The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been fighting with her sister, Kyle, 46, and struggling to deal with sobriety. And now, it’s been revealed one of her four kids has entered a psychiatric facility near LA.

“This wasn’t an involuntary psychiatric hold, but it came very close,” a source told ‘Radar Online.' The publication did not identify which child.
“[The individual] has battled with depression for years and it’s unclear at this point how long they’ll have to remain in the hospital. This is obviously very, very hard for Kim.”

Those close to the reality star are understandably concerned, given what she has dealt with recently. She admitted to taking a pain pill from her cancer-stricken ex, Monty Brinson, on a recent 'RHOBH' episode, before having a massive blowout with Kyle during the ‘Bravo’ reunion special.

“To say people are concerned about Kim is an understatement. She is extremely vulnerable right now and is just existing on autopilot,” the source noted.
