Former ‘Access Hollywood’ host Pat O’Brien appeared on the ‘Today’ show to offer his thoughts on news that Lindsay Lohan will be headed for jail after Judge Marsha Revel sentenced the 24-year-old to a 90 day sentence for a probation violation.
“Well, I see a woman, a girl, a young lady, who is in serious, serious trouble,” said O’Brien, who has dealt with his own addiction issues. “And I’ve watched Lindsay throughout this whole thing. In fact, a few years ago I actually confronted her and said, ‘Are you going to be OK?’ Well, she’s not OK. And that’s a woman right there, a young lady– a very good actor, by the way — who is in serious, serious trouble. And this judge did her a huge favor because it was either this or die, in my opinion. And believe me, she was on a journey to death. And now she’s on a journey hopefully for recovery.”
