Lohan’s mother, Dina, told Entertainment Tonight that her daughter is “petrified” of the 90-day jail sentence she’s scheduled to begin serving on July 20.
“She’s scared to death,” Dina said in the interview, which airs Friday. “She’s strong, but until someone faces something as devastating as that….we're going to have to see.”
Lohan said she’s trying to be positive, adding, “God willing it won’t happen at all.”
If it weren’t for Lindsay’s celebrity, she said, she wouldn’t even be in this position. “That’s what saddens me the most,” Lohan told ET. “Everything’s taken a step further because of her celebrity….If she weren’t, she wouldn’t be in this position and it wouldn’t be so hard on her. It certainly wouldn’t be televised; I think that’s disgusting that they would do that to her.”
While Lohan recognizes the poor judgment that led to Lindsay facing jail time, she said that the 24-year-old actress doesn't need rehab.
"She did a really stupid thing," Lohan said. But, she added, "I know my daughter is clean and sober today. I know that for a fact. I'm not a doctor…and I'm not an attorney. I'm a mother. And I'm sitting here, as a mother, just worried about my child."
