Tatum O’Neal was allegedly suicidal last month and placed on a “psychiatric hold” after an incident in her Los Angeles home.
The 56-year-old actress was allegedly taken to a local hospital after threatening to jump off the balcony of her Los Angeles home, according to a report on Sunday.
It has been reported that O’Neal wanted to leap off the property balcony before law enforcement was contacted for concerns about a suicidal person – once they arrived, she was put into safety and taken to a local hospital where she was “placed under psychiatric hold”.
She was released once her mental health episode had stabilised and she was in a better frame of mind. In October of 2018, Tatum revealed on social media that she was repeatedly sexually assaulted as a child at the hands of her father’s friend and one of her mother’s boyfriends.

This is one of the most memorable photos of my life. The last time we were all together was at the 30-year Paper Moon Anniversary in 2003. I could cry tears of gratitude that everyone in this photo is still alive and that we were all able to come together again after so many years of hardship. The entire West Coast is burning, but if the O’Neals can reconcile, truly anything is possible 🙏🏻☺️💛#Reconciliation #Forgiveness #Wholeness #Love #FAMILY
She wrote at the time, “I am a woman and I have been sexually assaulted more than once. It was not my fault when I was 5, 6, 12, 13, 15 – all by older men who I thought were safe.”

M O O D!! I am a woman and i have been sexually assaulted more than once !! It was not my fault when i was 5, 6 12 , 13 , 15. – All by older men who i thought were safe ! I rarely have known safety and was always blamed for for the assaults and,my loudness , and curiosity. It’s taken in me almost 55 years to know how to advocate for myself But I learn fast and here I go!! To see the president of US.Mock a woman, let alone a sexual assault victim. We’ve sunk to a depth of depravity that I never thought the president of the United States could ever sink to you. With uproarious laughter for someone who was assaulted at 15 years old. Whether it was 35 years ago to a 75-year-old man at 15 I remember everything !! It’s time to band together. So this time in history is having a lot of negative impact and Activation-for alot of people like me. there are people will say, I had it coming or it was probably my fault. Or I deserved it -that’s what America has come to you now. Together we fight on for the empathy, and kindness towards one another, whatever your preferences are , whether you’re black or white or conservative or liberal we are Americans and we should always fight for people who have had trauma or who have suffered, and never hurt others for whatever reason. I’ve never seen such a dark time in our country . I was too young to remember 68 – but I feel like we’re headed to something much worse -Before gets better. Let’s,lead with love and kindness and empathy Towards one another.But we , victims the victim of sexual Assault,or violence,must NOT put down our armor.It’s time to fight for one another and each other in this dark time ! America We can do better – we will be better!!’ 🙏🏽🇺🇸
