Mothers know best. That seems to be the statement Lindsay Lohan’s mother Dina was emphasizing as she insisted to have her daughter at home for she was “taking no chances” after the release from King Edward VII’s Hospital on Wednesday, Jan. 21, 2015. Read on for further details.
The “Parent Trap” star struggled after a rare virus from mosquitoes called Chikungunya attacked her system with symptoms of intense joint pain and high fever. According to RadarOnline.com, Dina wanted Lindsay to stay in New York after her daughter’s four-day hospital stay.
“She is extremely worried for Lindsay and has suggested that she come back to live with her until her symptoms get better,” a family friend told Radar.
The 28-year-old star from “Mean Girls” revealed on social media in December 2014 that she had acquired Chikungunya during her vacation in French Polynesia. On Dec. 28, 2014, she posted a photo on Instagram showing herself riding a motorized watercraft with a caption “Before I got chikungunya. Use…[bug] spray please. God bless.”
On the day after posting the Instagram photo, Lindsay tweeted, “Being sick is no fun. But happy new year everyone.”
An insider said that Lindsay was “convinced” that she could recover, but the disease was constantly weakening her for the past weeks. According to Radar, she was frustrated with the misfortune and felt that “the timing just sucks” because she finally got “her shit together” after years of rehab.
“Lindsay is strong, but when it comes to something like this, she is also really scared right now,” the insider told Radar.
According to Dina, Lindsay is still scheduled for a film shoot in Switzerland. She posted a photo on Instagram showing a meeting with manager Evan Hainey and director Jonathan Baker at The Beverly Hills Hotel. Her film “Inconceivable” was already announced in 2014 during the Sundance Film Festival.
The singer-actress was living in London since the first quarter of 2014. She made her debut on-stage for the West End revival of “Speed-the-Plow” by David Mamet in September.
