Lindsay Lohan's mum has already cashed in on her daughter's jail and rehab ordeal, giving a shocking interview full of denial to a US network.
The celebrity mum staunchly defended her decision to let Lindsay move to Los Angeles on her own at age 19, after which she got into drugs.
Her apparent drug addiction has resulted in four rehab stays and two spells behind bars for drink driving charges.
"As a parent, you have to let her go a little bit," she said.
"When she went out to Los Angeles when she was 19, I had to let her go and let her live and fall and fail and survive. Without failure, there's no success."
When robustly questioned by the US Today show's Matt Lauer, Dina pointed the finger at tabloids and judge Marsha Revel who sent Lilo to jail and rehab.
"I think that's all propaganda and what people are reading," she said.
She claims Lindsay is doing well at rehab and will be out before her 90 day court-ordered term is over.
"She's great," Dina said.
"She's been through a lot. The judge played hardball. Lindsay was in with alleged murderers and she's become friends with a lot of them. Lindsay rolled with the punches and she's doing wonderfully."
Wow. With a mum as full of denial as Dina, it will be a miracle if Lindsay ever gets her life together.
