Paris Hilton's aunt Kim Richards has confirmed reports she checked into a rehabilitation centre to treat a drinking problem, confessing: "I'm an alcoholic".
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star entered a facility last month (Dec11) to seek help for an undisclosed issue, rumoured to be a drink problem.
Richards, who has constantly dismissed suggestions she's an alcoholic, left the centre earlier this month (Jan12), and she's revealed the reason she sought professional assistance.
She tells Bravo's Andy Cohen, "I'm an alcoholic."
