Update: Betty Ford Center fires aide in Lindsay Lohan dust-up

By The Reliable Source

(David McNew/AP)

A staffer at the Betty Ford Center who claims she was shoved by Lindsay Lohan was fired after granting an interview to TMZ.com. A spokesman for the clinic told the Associated Press that Dawn Holland -- whose allegation has led to an investigation of the starlet by local police -- was let go for ID'ing patients and "disclosing a privileged document." Holland told TMZ that Lohan had tried to sneak out of the center, and then became belligerent when Holland tried to give her a Breathalyzer test. Holland later told RadarOnline that TMZ had paid her about $10,000 for that interview. Complicated! Meanwhile, no charges have been filed in the matter against Lohan, who has been in the rehab center since September.

Sounds like the staffer was trying to make a quick buck on the side. The Center is correct to immediately dump any employee who violates the privacy rules.

Why is the WaPo continuing to violate Lohan's privacy by repeating the details alleged by the staffer? Wouldn't it be enough to say that the staffer was fired for ID'ing a patient or, if it's public knowledge that Lohan is there, that the staffer was fired for violating Lohan's confidentiality?
