London, Dec 23 (IANS) Michael Lohan has called ex-wife Dina an ‘enabler’ after news surfaced that she advised daughter Lindsay not to take a drug test.
‘Dina made the mistake of being overheard telling Lindsay – and the other girls she is living with – not to take a drug test,’ femalefirst.co.uk quoted Michael as saying.
‘It’s enabling even in rehab. How sad. Are you kidding me? If this was all handled the right way, with honesty, none of this would have happened,’ he added.
He also revealed that Lindsay – who tested negative for drugs and alcohol after the incident, is considering suing the clinic after staff member Dawn Holland spoke out about her clash with the actress, resulting in the worker being dismissed from her job.
Lindsay could sue the Betty Ford Center clinic for millions of dollars, he said.
‘For this woman to speak publicly and break a patient’s confidentiality is unheard of in the rehab and medical field. This is a big, big issue and it’s an open-and-shut case: one of their people spoke out and that’s that. Bottom line, you can’t do that,’ Michael said.
‘She is personally liable for this gross invasion of privacy, as is the Betty Ford Center. Lindsay doesn’t need this or deserve it when she worked so hard and has come too far for this to happen.’
Lindsay is under a court order to stay in the facility until Jan 3.
