Dina Lohan says her daughter Lindsay’s life in jail is every bit as difficult and uncomfortable as her fellow inmates, without any celebrity perks.

Reports have claimed Lindsay has a cell phone but Dina told the press: 'She doesn’t have cell phone privileges, that’s absurd. She doesn’t even have a pillow to sleep on.'

'I talk to her through glass. There’s a phone and we put her on speaker but I can’t even hug my daughter.'

You can forget all about any A-list treatment. 'She’s treated like a common criminal,' says Dina angrily.

For all that, Lindsay’s mom did praise the other occupants of Lynwood Correctional Center, saying, 'I have to say that the people inside have been pretty cool to her, the guards and the inmates.'

Lindsay is also expected to be released any day before heading straight to a rehab facility for three months.
