Lindsay Lohan's mom admits daughter is addict

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan’s mother has admitted that her wayward daughter is an addict, during an appearance on the Today Show.

In previous interviews, mother Dina had denied Lindsay’s condition and  instead blamed the judge handling the case, according to The People. When questioned by Today’s Matt Lauer why she had done so, she responded: “That was for Lindsay to admit. As a mother it wasn’t for me to come to tell the world … about her problem. That was for her to do. I wasn’t in denial.”

She also commented on Lindsay’s stormy relationship with her father, saying that  it would be good for her daughter if their relationship could be fixed, but also giving her support to “whatever the facility wishes for her. It’s all about Lindsay and her healing.”

Dina also commented that her daughter had already seen some positive improvements since she checked into the Betty Ford Center in California, recently.

“She’s just a different person,“ Dina told Lauer. “She’s been in a couple facilities, but this one to me has really changed her…Lindsay wants to stay, she’s learning the trigger points and why she turns to drugs.“

And, according to her mother, the young actress might be thinking about opening a rehab centre of her own. “She wants to start her own facilities, help other children,”

Lohan was ordered to enter rehab after she failed a drugs test.
