We doubt that they'll listen, but we truly hope that they do - for the sake of everyone's well-being!
Doctors at the Betty Ford Center are reportedly advising Lindsay Lohan to cut her mother, Dina, out of her professional life, so that they can have a normal parent/child relationship.
A source explains:
"Dina needs to no longer act as her manager, or work for her daughter in any capacity. Lindsay needs Dina to simply be her mother. Lindsay's treatment team at Betty Ford has emphasized this to Lindsay, very, very strongly. Lindsay feels the financial burden of taking care of her entire family. It's enormous pressure for any person in their twenties, let alone someone that is battling with addiction. Lindsay and Dina don't have a normal mother-and-daughter dynamic because of the length of time that Dina has worked for Lindsay. She isn't strong enough to tell Dina that she doesn't want her to work for her anymore. It's partly because it has been the norm for so long and Lindsay doesn't know what her career would look like without her mom's involvement. Lindsay wants to get back to work, with the view, the sooner the better. However, her treatment team is asking that she commit to at least another 45 days of treatment. Lindsay has done several 30 day rehab stints and almost every time, she has relapsed. We really believe that the longer she stays at Betty Ford, the better for her odds of success."
Agreed on all counts!
It's clear that a lot of Lindsay's problems come from the way she and her parents relate to one another, and we truly hope that doctors can not only convince her, but also Dina, that this is the only way to ensure her health and future happiness!
It's time to break the cycle, bb!
We're keeping our fingers crossed for you!
