Tatum O’Neal’s attachment to her late dog, Lena, was definitely what pushed her over the edge and on the fringe of relapsing, her dog groomer tells OK!.
Jorge Bendersky, celebrity groomer at New York Dog Spa and Hotel, and currently appearing on Animal Planet’s Groomer Has It, backs up the Oscar winner’s explanation.
She loved that dog,” Jorge tells OK!. “She would bring her here super-often. I have so many clients, I can see them going through stuff with their dog; it’s devastating. And somebody who has the inclination, or had a path with some trouble, it could push you over the edge, more when you are attached to the dog as you are.”
