Dina Lohan has admitted that her daughter Lindsay is an addict on the Today show.
She had previously downplayed Lindsay’s condition, instead blaming the judge handling the case, People reports. When asked by Today’s Matt Lauer why she had done this, Dina answered:
“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.”
The star’s mom also commented on Lindsay’s infamously tumultuous relationship with her father, saying she thinks it would be good for the two to reconnect, but also giving her support to “whatever the facility wishes for her. It’s all about Lindsay and her healing.” (click here to read about Lindsay’s recent reunion with her dad)
Already, Dina has noticed a positive change in her daughter since she entered the Betty Ford Center in California.
“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.“
The young actress is even thinking about opening a center of her own one day, Dina said. “She wants to start her own facilities, help other children,” Peace FM cited the celeb mom. “She’s so public, we can only be positive and look to the future to help other families.”
And what happens when LiLo leaves rehab? “We take it one day at a time,“ said Dina. “Addiction is difficult. I don’t know. I don’t have a crystal ball. I pray hard.“
Another celebrity who has recently entered rehab is young singer and actress Demi Lovato.
