Alec Baldwin was suffering from PTSD even before the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins.
Baldwin’s wife confirmed the actor had been diagnosed with PTSD, but didn’t give more details.
‘My husband is suffering from PTSD right now,’
‘It’s something that is not just from what happened recently but he’s been suffering from this for a very, very, very long time…’
This comes after Baldwin broke down in tears and claimed he didn’t pull the trigger of the gun that killed Hutchins.
Hutchins was killed when a prop gun held by Baldwin on the set of the movie Rust was discharged.
Speaking to ABC, Baldwin claimed he never pulled the trigger of the gun.
Asked by @GStephanopoulos how a real bullet got on the "Rust" set, Alec Baldwin says: “I have no idea. Someone put a live bullet in a gun. A bullet that wasn’t even supposed to be on the property.”

An experienced gun expert has called out Baldwin’s claims that he didn’t pull the trigger.
Steve Wolf, a movie armorer with more than 30 years in the business, was asked what the chances are of Baldwin’s claims being true are: “One a scale of one to 10? Zero.”
The investigation is ongoing.
