Celebrity Rehab’s Dr. Drew Pinsky set the record straight with RadarOnline.com about Lindsay Lohan and says he hopes she will get “proper treatment.”
Dr. Drew wants to put an end to the public feud he has had with the 23-year-old. He told RadarOnline.com exclusively, “I literally wish her the best..I wish whatever this is, she get proper treatment and she do well. I wish her nothing but the best.”
Although Lindsay has publicly bashed Pinsky (“He’s such a loser. He’s not a real doctor, he’s a celebrity doctor.”), he is still willing to reach out to her: “For me to say that I’d make myself available or try to help her in anyway almost seems ridiculous at this point. If there’s some way that even by my reaching out to her can deescalate some of these things. I would be delighted to just make it clear that I wish her no harm. I’m here to support…Here to make things right and good- not to give somebody more distress. That is not my goal.”
The online battle began when Dr. Drew suggested to RadarOnline.com that a car be packed up with drugs with Lindsay in the vehicle and that Lindsay’s father, Michael, should have her arrested. Then she should be mandated by a judge to enter a court ordered drug treatment program.
Dr. Drew, who is a board certified addiction specialist, wants to be perfectly clear that he made these remarks as a father.
“I was saying as a father, I would go to any lengths to bring consequences to bear,” Dr. Drew said.
“The idea that someone should be framed for crimes that they did not commit. Of course, that’s the furthest thing from what I’m suggesting. I’m not suggesting that Michael Lohan do anything. I’m certainly not suggesting he do something like framing anybody,” he said.
In an interview with RadarOnline.com, Michael reacted to Dr. Drew’s comments by saying, “I don’t think planting drugs in someone’s car is the right thing, I don’t think he meant it that way.”
Dr. Drew goes on to say, “I have 17-year-old triplets and I sat them down a couple of years ago. I told them if you ever get an addiction, I’m going to make sure you get arrested. I’m not going to bail you out…However, I will go fight for treatment.”
Drew says, “I have always said that Lindsay will be a wonderful sober person.” He absolutely wishes her no ill will and doesn’t want any harm to come her way.
Dr. Drew has never treated or met Lindsay or Michael, but says one of the reasons he is addressing her situation is because it is happening in the public eye.
He feels it’s a good opportunity to educate people about addiction. And, once again, he points out- he’s not passing judgment on Lindsay or her family.
