More news on actress Lindsay Lohan: she is reportedly headed back into rehab on Monday. This time around, though, she is checking herself in voluntarily, at least based on information from a source close to the actress. This was shared in a feature on CNN.
Ms. Lohan spent some time in jail again after failing a random drug test. She spent 13 days in jail and 23 days in a court-mandated rehab program at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center just last month. The actress was originally ordered to spend 90 days each in jail and in rehab, but was released early. This time around, she spent 14 hours in jail.
Lohan admitted to the failed drug test last week, and sent out the following tweet: “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.”
One positive step is going into rehab voluntarily, something that her dad Michael Lohan, at least according to him, has been pushing for, He said: “Finally, they listened to me.” He expressed hope that Shawn Chapman Holley, his daughter’s lawyer, would do “the right thing and advises her to go right into rehab now, and show the judge she’s serious, because in 30 days when she goes back before the judge he can do whatever he wants.”
Lindsay Lohan was released on $300,000 bail. The bail terms called for Lindsay to be fitted with an alcohol monitoring bracelet. A probation revocation hearing had been scheduled for October 22.
