Dakota Johnson Leaves Rehab


Who knew Dakota Johnson was even in rehab? I believe it was blind item, but I am going to have to look for it. For the first time, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson have publicly admitted that Dakota Johnson had been in rehab. She recently completed a 30 day stint at Malibu, California treatment facility Visions Teen Treatment Center.

According to sources, former couple Johnson and Griffith realized their daughter needed help after chatting about how Dakota seemed to be partying every night. I'm suspecting it is because she had absolutely no rules at all. Hell, even when she was under 18, her mom was lighting cigarettes for her.

Dakota reportedly agreed to get help, and is now a reformed person, thanks to rehab and regular Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Both Johnson and Griffith have previously attended rehab - the bloated, former Miami Vice star battled drug and alcohol issues at the Betty Ford Clinic in the mid-1990s, while his ex hit rehab for addictions to booze in 1988 and painkillers in 2000. I think there are some more, but those are the only ones that have ever been acknowledged.

Like daughter, like parents.

I'm not proud of thinking this - but seriously, some people should not have kids.

Reese said...

I vaguely remember a BI about a mother who was doing drugs with her daughter and might have even been the one procuring them. As I recall Melanie Griffith was the favorite answer by a landslide.

Cute girl; I hope she straightens herself out and stays away from her parents.

Wasn't she Miss Golden Globes last year?

Rumer Willis this time next year!

I think this also fulfills the blind about the mom who told her daughter to "go back upstairs and come back down when you've smoked some pot" because of her shitty attitude.

Oh lord, Trix, I missed that one. Seriously? Thst's mega-messed up.

Trix said...

Yup Twisted :( I wish I could find it but its rather tedious to shift through all this stuff. With Melanie's cigarette-lighting ways, Im just not at all surprised.

Twisted Sister said...

Oh, don't look for it, Trix, but thanks. I'm sure that was the most important part of the item anyway. I guess Melannie raises her daughter the way she was raised...so the cycle continues.

Ooooo...blind item reveal?

I forget which one it was, but I think I remember one like this!

word ont he street is she and her mother both have raging crack addictions.

put your racist assumptions aside - when you've become tolerant to insufflating cocaine there are 3 routes you can take: crack, meth or IV coke.

it's a lot easier to hide a crack pipe than it is a track mark - just ask pamela anderson.

Tania, your're absolutely correct. I think getting "snipped" is an apprpriate punishment for those people accused of child neglect, abuse or chronic drug use.

has a photo of the Johnson girls with a comment about how Dakota could party everybody under the table. Also, there's a NYDN blind in that link about a Hollywood mom who "manages" her daughter's drug addiction by carrying her cocaine for her.
