Alec Baldwin Refused To Help Stephen Baldwin
Stephen Baldwin, the father of famous personality Hailey Bieber and brother to Alec Baldwin, has been determined to save his New York estate. However, he was caught up in a stressful situation for he was falling short of the $1.1M, required to save his house. Stephen Baldwin and his wife Kennya bought the luxury house for $812,500 in 2000. However, failing to keep up with the $7,000-a-month mortgage, the couple was dragged to court for a lawsuit, by the Deutsche Bank in 2013.
Although Hailey Bieber’s father tried to toss the lawsuit stating the incompetencies of the paperwork, the judge denied all arguments. Panicking in the time of crisis, he turned to his brother Alec Baldwin, whose network at that time was $65M. Therefore, the Bio-Dome actor claimed $1.1M “would be no big deal” for his brother. However, failing to realize how his call for help from his brother would only cause him a disappointment, the 56-year-old took the step. Insiders shared, “Alec won’t give him an answer,” despite seeking help during the crisis.
