Jamie Lee Curtis is acting as a sober mentor to Lindsay Lohan and is even “like a second mother” to her, dad Michael tells RadarOnline.com.
Lohan, 24, completed her court-ordered rehab on Monday at the Betty Ford Center near Palm Springs and in our exclusive video was seen for the first time at a posh hotel in Beverly Hills hugging her Freaky Friday co-star Curtis.
“Jamie is a dear and well trusted friend of the family,” Michael said.
“I couldn’t be more pleased that Lindsay has an unbelievable person like Jamie, in her life, in any capacity.”
Michael added, “We will see that all the people that were in Lindsay’s life when things were going well, when she was in Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, are now coming back into her life.
“She is going back to her roots, going back to all the people who were in her life when she was doing good.
“I believe she is going to prove to the entire Industry she is back for good.”
Lohan will have a sober coach to help her through her ongoing quest for sobriety but Curtis won’t formally take on that role, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Instead, she will act as a confidante.
In an interview with NBC’s Today show, Curtis declared her own struggle with drug addiction and recovery “is the single greatest accomplishment of my life”.
“Without that, the rest of my life would have fallen apart,” she said.
While Curtis’ rep told RadarOnline.com the actress wouldn’t discuss her personal life, in September, the 52-year-old said of Lohan: “Everyone deserves a second chance and you can look back at your life and realize the mistakes you can make and repair them.”
