Dina Lohan has offered Amanda Bynes' parents advice on their out-of-control daughter.
Amanda's recent troubles – which included having her car impounded and being charged with driving on a suspended licence – have been compared to the fall from grace of Dina's daughter Lindsay and she says Amanda's parents need to be there to help the 26-year-old former child star through her ongoing drama.
Speaking on Entertainment Tonight, she said: "You know, I'm a mother, and I feel that that's for her mother to speak about, and not me, because people have spoken for my child and myself, so I really feel that's for her parents to discuss and Amanda herself.
"[But] just be around. It's hard when your daughter's not, you know, over 18, and you want to let them go … and they want to, you know, feel like they're in control of themselves. So it's a very strategic place for a parent to be, but she'll be OK."
Dina is no stranger to controversy and was recently accused of being drunk during an interview on TV show Dr Phil, something which she strongly disputes.
She said: "I was absolutely not under, intoxicated, or on any kind of medication. I was extremely upset."
