Tanning Mom

Enters Rehab

For Booze

EXCLUSIVE

0621-tanning-mom-michael-lohan-tmz
45-year-old Tanning Mom has entered rehab for alcohol abuse, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Patricia Krentcil -- who famously faced child endangerment charges last year after allegedly putting her 5-year-old in a tanning booth -- tell us she entered Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Thursday night.

We're told Tanning Mom realized she had hit rock bottom after she was placed in detox for 30 hours at an airport in Minneapolis last week ... for being way too drunk to fly.

Of course, TM has had a few public drunken incidents -- last August she was a wasted, stumbling, panty-flashing mess at a gay nightclub in NYC. 'Memba that? So it's not a huge surprise.

As for why she ended up at Lukens -- a rehab center endorsed by Michael Lohan -- we're told TM reached out to Michael about treatment because the two went to high school together ... and she heard Michael mention Lukens' unique treatment and success in a recent interview.

Krentcil will remain in treatment for 30 days.

It's not rehab she needs; it's an insane asylum.

Why does TMZ keep putting this piece of garbage in the headlines? She is not a celebrity, just a gross-ass skanky broad.

Finally! Milo got someone to go to Lukens! True, it wasn't his degenerate daughter, or the queen of rehab visits Mueller, or the "couple of others in BF that wanted to go," but it's something, kind of. What a guy! And what a coincidence that a camera was there to record his helpful self and provide it to tmz. I'm shocked by that and the idea that Milo actually went to high school, If he went with her, he must have taken his sweet time to get through school! LMAO Scam artist 101. Wonder how long it will take for her to sober up enough to say he had nothing to do with it!
