In a statement to TMZ, Betty Ford officials say, "Regrettably, on December 21, 2010, one of our employees violated strict confidentiality guidelines and laws by publicly identifying patients in a media interview and by disclosing a privileged document."

The statement goes on, "The employee has been terminated by the Betty Ford Center."

Holland told TMZ she spoke with us because the story was already out there, Lindsay was publicly trashing her, and Betty Ford did not have her back.

The Betty Ford Center sounds like a second-rate rehab center that hires incompetent help. I read Dawn Holland's statement and she seems damned near illiterate.

Lohan leaves a path of destruction and drama wherever she goes. Hopefully the judge will learn she was out against facility rules and refused a test when she returned.

The real fight is between TMZ and radaronline. They've been after TMZ since the whole Mel Gibson incident. Now it's payback for radaronline(against TMZ) because of the negative press they got from TMZ because TMZ has proved Mel's mistress to be a giant liar. This is gettin good!!

I didn't believe Linz was drunk for a second. With all she has on the line. Reconsile both parents to the simple fact: if they want to be at your house at Christmas they have to love you first and shut up second.
