Experts at Lindsay’s rehab say that Dina Lohan needs to stop being Lindsay’s manager and act as a mom for once! It’s going to help Lilo work out her problems!

There’s only one thing Lindsay Lohan needs right now that she’s in rehab at Betty Ford: for her mother Dina Lohan to start acting like her mom instead of her manager! “Dina needs to no longer act as her manager, or work for her daughter in any capacity,” a source close to the Lohan family tells “Lindsay needs Dina to simply be her mother [and] Lindsay’s treatment team at Betty Ford has emphasized this to Lindsay, very, very strongly!”

Lindsay and Dina don’t have a normal mother-and-daughter dynamic because of the length of time that Dina has worked for Lindsay,” the source says. “She is strong enough to tell Dina that she doesn’t want her to work for her anymore.”

But it’s going to be hard to change this dynamic as “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 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.”

We think Lindsay needs to drop Dina as her manager so the two of them can figure out how this mother-daughter stuff is supposed to work. It’ll be one less situation Lindsay has to analyze while in rehab.
