Lindsay Lohan headed to a rehab clinic yesterday, conveniently owned by her new lawyer Robert Shapiro. Details on the flipside
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has reportedly entered rehab in an apparent attempt to curry favor with the California judge who wants to lock her up for 90 days.
The fallen starlet was pictured entering the Pickford Lofts facility Wednesday, according to X17online.com.
The clinic was set up by O.J. Simpson’s former attorney, Robert Shapiro, who has been hired by Lohan to handle her on-going legal woes, TMZ.com reported.
Shapiro established the facility after his son Brent died of a drug overdose in 2005.
On her first day at the center, Lohan received visits on Wednesday from her mom, Dina, sister Ali, ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, assistant Eleanor and alleged new love Eilat Anschel, according to X17.
Her assistant brought in pillows and bags from Blick art supply, a case of Sprite and toilet paper, while Ronson arrived about 10 p.m. and stayed for 45 minutes, reported the celebrity Web site.
Shapiro will reportedly attempt to convince Los Angeles Judge Marsha Revel to put Lohan in a detox clinic and either dismiss or reduce her 90-day jail sentence.
Lohan, 24, was sentenced to time behind bars followed by 90 days at an inpatient rehab center last week for violating the terms of her probation in her DUI case.
She must surrender herself in Revel’s courtroom on July 20
Hey, maybe the
third fourth time is the charm after all!
This pretty much confirms what we already knew — Blohan is so desperate to avoid jail time she’ll do anything — even give up being a substance abuser.
Whether it keeps her out of jail or not — it’s clear this chick needs some serious help, so we’re happy to see her trying to get clean. Good luck with that Lindsay!
