There are new reports coming out of Betty Ford Clinic. Dina Lohan sat down this morning with Matt Lauer on the Today Show to talk about her daughter’s progress.
Dina revealed that she recently spent two weeks at the clinic, not in one-on-one time with her daughter but learning about co-dependency and enabling behavior by interacting with other families who are in the same boat.
The really big news is that Lindsay Lohan and her father Michael Lohan were reunited on Sunday and spent several hours together at the rehab facility. They last spoke to each other seven months ago but even then, their relationship was contentious at best.
According to RadarOnline, it was an emotion reunion. The pair met at 1:00 p.m. at the Rancho Mirage facility. Dad and his oldest daughter have been estranged for years, but as part of her treatment plan–she extended the invitation to sit down with her father.
When the website contacted Michael after the intense encounter, he was uncharacteristically mute on the subject of his daughter. He said: “I have pledged not to comment about anything relating to my daughter. However, what I will say is that I am an incredibly proud father tonight. My daughter is progressing extraordinarily well.”
Lauer asked Dina if Lindsay had met with Michael. She said she did not know but did acknowledge that she would be in favor of a reconciliation between her ex-husband and her recovering offspring.
The photo above shows Michael and Lindsay during a previous reconciliation in December 2008. Hopefully this time it will stick.
