Hilaria Baldwin had no choice but to quit social media. And this “for a long time”. For several days, the mother of five children has been at the heart of serious questions since some Internet users have unearthed a past that she preferred to hide. Faced with the controversy, Alec Baldwin’s wife was forced to come out of silence to reveal that indeed, she was not born in Mallorca as she has long led to believe. In fact, the one called Hillary was born in Boston and reportedly only spent a lot of time in Spain. “I’m really lucky that I grew up speaking two different languages and I’m trying to bring up my children, so they also speak two languages. And that’s something very important for me, especially to have my family abroad, ”she explained on social media. A few days after the start of this storm, Alec Baldwin wanted to defend his wife, accused of cultural appropriation.
“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth takes its place,” the actor wrote, using a quote from author Mark Twain. And the least we can say is that it has come out of the clutches. To an Internet user who criticized his wife, Alec Baldwin simply answered him “to fuck off”. A few hours before, it was Hilaria Baldwin’s daughter-in-law who had reacted to the controversy. The model has explained that she wants to leave the city of Los Angeles where she lives, in part because of the rumors surrounding her relatives. The young woman, who loves “a lot” her mother-in-law, a “strong, kind and caring” person, considers that these are “her business” and that she does not have to evoke “her family past”: “Yes, it is important to educate [concerning cultural appropriation, editor’s note] (…) I apologize to those who are facing all kinds of suffering these days and I wish you a happy new year “. In the wake of the revelations, Hilaria Baldwin’s website was changed to remove the claim that she was born in Mallorca.
Hilaria Baldwin explains herself
A few days ago on Instagram, the satisfied mother came out of her silence and explained that she wanted to leave social networks. “I said what I had to say. I’m so exhausted. I’m going to go back to my family, because I haven’t been a very good mom spending a lot of time focusing on this story, she first said. “I just want to be left alone. I love you and I will log out for a long time.” In the rest of her message, Hilaria Baldwin returned to her hidden past. “I was born in Boston and grew up spending time with my family between Massachusetts and Spain. My parents and siblings live in Spain and I chose to live here in the United States,” She confided, explaining that she “mixed the two languages”: “I didn’t do anything wrong and I’m not going to apologize for the time I spent in two countries. I just want to say, leave me alone”.
