Fanbolt.com: While the Betty Ford Center has been considered more of a ‘celebrity get-away’ at times more than what it really is: a rehab, it seems actress Lindsay Lohan is finding it to the be the toughest rehab yet: on her wallet.
Lindsay began treatment at Betty Ford on Sept. 28. At initial check-in, fans were once again sad to hear that rehab may once again fail to help the actress, as she was still in complete denial that she had any problem with drug or alcohol abuse. But shockingly, the Betty Ford Center has turned out to be the one spot where Lohan is finally making “true progression”, and is for the first time admitting possible drug addiction [and even feelings of powerlessness].
But although the actress may have finally found a place to get herself mentally back on track, she may end up leaving the center [which would be a major set-back, says administrators], due to her inability to afford the program financially.
“She indicates she cannot afford to continue to pay for the treatment program and she needs to work,” a report from her probation officer states. “The defendant states her clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product.”
Judge Elden Fox recently granted the actress leave to catch up on well-behind projects on one condition: the actress must wear her SCRAM bracelet and must report back to rehab immediately after work [which will be an off and on thing since the judge has already granted her leave in November for filming, which is rumored to be the Linda Lovelace biopic we're all hoping she doesn't go though with]. Which means, if the actress’s allegations are true, she’ll basically be working for rehab for quite some time [expected at least until January 3rd, 2011].
But is there really a point if the actress can come and go as he pleases? Is this just another one of Lindsay’s smart ways around the system? Weigh in fans!
Radar Online: Lindsay Lohan has been ordered to appear in court October 22 in connection with her probation violation, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively.
Judge Elden Fox ordered the actress to appear. She is currently at the Betty Ford Center for her addiction to cocaine. Lindsay tested positive for cocaine during one of her random drug tests that were a condition of her probation. Judge Fox previously said that any dirty drug test would result in 30 days in jail for the Mean Girls star.
Sources close to the situation tell us that Lohan wonât dispute the test results, turning the court action into a sentencing hearing instead of a more formal probation violation hearing. (Lindsay admitted that she slipped up via Twitter after initially denying it, when the first news reports of her âdirtyâ test appeared.)
âLindsay will be sentenced next Friday for her probation violation,â a close source told RadarOnline.com exclusively. âJudge Fox could do several things. He could order her to jail immediately, sentence her to 30 days and suspend the sentence until she completes her stint at Betty Ford Center. Or he could come up with another scenario. âLindsayâs fate rests with Judge Fox.â
Lindsay will be escorted from Betty Ford by at least one staff member from the facility. âLindsay will have someone with her at all times when she leaves Betty Ford,â said a source. âThey want to make sure that Lindsay is not tempted by anything.â
Splash News Online: Lindsay Lohan allegedly attempted to escape the confines of the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif. with Coke on her mind. However, not the same substance that landed her in rehab in the first place.
Desperate for a soda fix, Lohan and a companion reportedly attempted to sneak over the rehabilitation clinic’s fence to use the vending machine at the neighboring Eisenhower Medical Center.
The shifty plan was hindered when Lohan’s counterpart hitched her clothing on a fence, forcing the trapped actress to surrender to a Betty Ford volunteer passing by in a golf cart.
After being chauffeured back to the caffeine-free treatment center, Lohan and her partner in crime interrupted a process meeting that was organized to discuss their actions.
Lohan will have to try and remain decaffeinated until her court date on Oct. 22.
Hollyscoop: Lindsay Lohan is reportedly getting treatment at a rehab facility in Orange County. The name of the center has not been disclosed, but sources tell RadarOnline.com thatâs where she currently is.
A source from the rehab said, âShe is with us for the time being. We expect her to stay for the full 90 days, however she could bounce because there is no court order ensuring that she has to stay.â
Another rehab source says they hope this time makes a difference. âHopefully we will be able to make a difference,â the source said. âIf she makes it through the first couple weeks, she should be ok.â
Michael Lohan told Hollyscoop what he wants for this daughter. âIf Lindsay stays in for a long period of time and she gets family therapy with Dina and I, then she has a shot,â said Michael. âLindsay and I went to therapy together when she was at Cirque Lodge and Dina went with Lindsay. But against the wishes of the doctors, therapist and lawyers, Dina refuses to go with Lindsay and me.â
He went on to bash his ex-wife saying, âAccording to one highly regarded therapist, Dina is a narcissistâ¦she cannot admit any of wrongs. She can not take responsibility. And she always will find a way to blame others for the things she does.â
âLindsay was a very strong young lady,â Michael says of his daughter. âBut the people around her have made her feel that she is week and dependent on them. She always had Dina and me, but since Dina put walls between us she feels alone. She always needs someone with her. Her heart is huge. She is gifted and if things are done as they should be, she will rebound better than ever.
âIt’s all on Dina to get this right, but I her that her new found friendship with Lou Taylor will only hurt Lindsay. They need to stop trying to control her and my relationship with her.â
Funny enough, Dina has been awful quiet lately! The whole âLindsay is fineâ act isnât really believable anymore!
X17 Agency got access to a set of pictures from Lindsay Lohan taken at a private party 3 years ago (2007), where she is also partying with another troubled celebrity, socialite Paris Hilton.
On the pictures Lindsay is seen with a syringe on what it looks like to be filled with drugs (probably heroin). She was on the companion of Paris Hilton, that appears kissing Lindsay on the same party.
Actress Lindsay Lohan is set to be released from jail after Judge Patricia M. Schnegg from The Los Angeles Superior Court set a $300,000 bail for jail release just hours past a Beverly Hills judge sentenced Lohan to spend 30 days in jail on Friday (September 24) after she failed a drug test, The Los Angeles Times reports.
It’s speculated that Schnegg had set the bail to release Lohan from jail due to the overcrowding of the California county’s women’s jail in Lynwood.
Judge Elden Fox had sentenced Lindsay to go back to jail without bail until October 22 when another hearing on her case would be held. Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, released an statement considering Fox’s decision as legally incorrect because it involved probation violation for a misdemeanor conviction: “The case law is clear, She is entitled to bail.”, said Chapman Holley. The case was then passed to Judge Patricia Schnegg that ruled that Lindsay deserved bail.
Lindsay Lohan was back to The Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (September 24) to face the consequences for her failed drug test last week.
The actress was told by Judge Elden Fox to report to jail immediately, she was reportedly handcuffed during the hearing. According to TMZ, Lohan could be behind bars up to October 22, when the next hearing is scheduled to be happening.
Lindsay showed up to court wearing sunglasses, a long black blazer over a high-waisted white skirt and black top and shiny stacked heels at 8 A.M. (PT), five days after Judge Fox revoked her probation and issued a bench warrant.
TMZ has learned that Lindsay failed two drug tests, one for cocaine (which she admitted) and other for amphetamines, the later related to a medicine she takes and the judge wouldn’t sentence jail time for it.
According to her post-rehab agreement, Lindsay could be sent back to jail for 30 days. Lindsay’s first jail time was 13 days long (she was sentenced 90 days).
RadarOnline.com has confirmed that her case with E-Trade has been dismissed, according to her attorney Stephanie Ovadia.
âYes, itâs true, weâve settled with E-Trade,â Ovadia told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
Ovadia wouldnât reveal specifics of the case, but weâre told her team is very happy with the results.
Lohan claimed the stock trading company violated her rights by featuring a baby character named Lindsay during their television commercial ads, who happens to be the “milkaholic” other woman in a baby love triangle.
âE-Trade has always maintained that the claims were without merit, which is why we moved to dismiss the case,â a spokesperson for the company told RadarOnline.com.
âWith the case now withdrawn, we are pleased to have the matter behind us.â
One less legal battle has come as a relief to the Mean Girls star as well.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Lindsay failed two court mandated drug tests â testing positive for cocaine in one test and amphetamines in the other.
An arrest warrant has just been issued for the actress and her probation revoked.
After initially denying the failed drug tests, Lohan eventually admitted to it on her Twitter page saying, âIâm prepared to face the consequences.â

Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.
The actress says she is ready to face the consequences in front of a judge next week, as she could face a return to jail for 30 days. On Saturday morning (September 18), Lindsay also talked about her addiction and says she is on the right path to recovery:
Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!
