Dawn Holland -- Betty Ford Cut Me Off!

1/23/2011 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If it seems like Dawn Holland is trying to profit off this whole Lindsay Lohan mess, that's cause she is -- because after Betty Ford put a stop to her unemployment and workman's comp, she's flat broke.

Holland tells TMZ she's no longer receiving anything from Betty Ford after she was let go last month. She says she has kids to feed and can't get another job in the aftermath of her alleged Lohan run-in.

Holland also says she's hired a new lawyer in an effort to regain her unemployment and workman's comp from BF -- which became a major priority once her deal for photos with Lindsay fell through.

Calls to Betty Ford have not been returned.

This story was reported on ROL days ago.. What she SAID, was that she wanted her lawyer to concentrate on restoring her benefits. He did not, so she fired him and got new counsel.

If that means she "wants money" or that is equivalent to something nefarious that is quite some twist, TMZ?

ML ADMITS he offered to pay her for her silence and jerked her around.

We used to have a colored woman working for us, just as sweet as pie, until one day she got involved with some crack dealers and all those pimps and hos in the rap music, and she changed overnight.
She began going through our pocketbooks, changing the cable settings, and becoming such a nuisance we had to fire her. She tried to sue us but then she got sent to jail.
I believe this story will have a similar conclusion.

TMZ is wayout of it...as unemployment is under control of state goverment not beat your ford,BF can`t stop anything only the atate unemplyment office can stop payment on anything as they are in charge of unemployment and BF doesn`t even make all the unemployment payments the FED does but BF must pay into unemployment also.ONLY THE STATE CAN STOP UNEMPLOYMENT as they are the one`s payin it.

Regardless of what you think of Lindsay, this woman KNOWS the rules when you work in a place like this, or ANY health facility. She did not lose her job because of anything Lindsay did, she lost her job for breaking the law! BFC could not keep her after that! What she did is HUGE! The Lohan camp owes her nothing. That said, Lindsay obviously needs more time in rehab. She refused a drug test, the reason for that is obvious. Drinking or using, whichever she did that night was highly stupid!

@ grandma cracker

that do***ent was not a copy of her workman's comp. that was an incident report either for the police or for Betty Ford. there was information in that form that would never have to be given to workman's comp. Yes, it was a violation of HIPAA. Beyond Lindsay's alias, none of us knows if the names of the other 2 girls were their actual names or alias. Also, she states what happen to the other 2 girls and that they were sent to the detox hall after the incident.

if it were a workman's comp form there would be no reason to state the other two girls were sent to Ottenstein Hall at the main Betty Ford center.

Shoulda thought first before breaking HIPAA confidences. Betty Ford had to let her go because of that

Jill, Gloday, Dina, Whoever,

Sorry, but still not a good argument on your part. None of the do***ents you mentioned were medical files, and nothing that DH said was backed by any do***entation. Actually, quite the contrary. You guys have stated that BF sent "glowing reports" to Judge Fox. Ladies, you are the QUEENS of the misinformation and half truths highway...you know how this game works. You say some stupid stuff, Harvey posts your stupid stuff, and people read the stupid stuff. It at least keeps Lindsay relative on some level (if you call tabloids a level), Harvey makes his money and posters get to have some fun. Ladies, this is entertainment pure and simple. No legal precedents will be set here.

Lindsay and Company is a dog and pony show run by fools, but watching your desperate attempts at resurrecting Linday's career is a real scream. Thanks for the daily laugh ladies.

Well, I thought Harvey was a real lawyer? You know, with the education and passing the state bar and all that stuff. I guess he must know how to read, just does not read what his gang of bullies write. This is such a non-story with a lot of miss-information. Makes me wonder how much of their other stories are half truths or full fabrications. Seriously tmz, all you had to do was a little research on-line and you would have found the following information. Unemployment is paid by the STATE OF CALIFORNIA as is workmen's compensation. Betty Ford does not get to make the decision on who, what, or how much to pay ex-employees. Check out the following. http://www.workercompensation.com/.../california_workers_compensation_.html and http://www.edd.ca.gov/unemployment.html The least tmz could have done was help Dawn understand where her compensation came from or help her fine new employment.

The breath test is the entry level test for alcohol and a urine test is the entry check for drug detection.

Lindsay was tested, and passed. Who decides if she was tested within the set time limits... the Betty Ford Clinic. Did the clinic report her failure or her refusal to be tested NO!

Where did the posters here get the idea that she refused to test or failed?

It's OK to not like Lindsay but it is not OK to lie or invent reasons to want her punished.

Pure entertainment, here.

Lili's reputation is trash and was trash long before this incident. Dosen't matter who else her camp trashes.

In case you haven't noticed respectable people go to work on time, pay there bills, don't stalk people,steal their coke filled pants, get into bar fights with waitresses, don't use their Uncle's funeral as an excuse for missing court, then dosen't go to the funeral and goes to Cannes, paint FU on their nails in court, mock their drug bracelets.......etc. She is persona non grata except for tabloid trash.

Spot, no one cares if she gets punished or not. She's made herself a tabloid game in exchange for $$$$$.
