Living In Denial: Lindsay Lohan Insists She Doesn’t Need Rehab
First her dad urged the troubled star to seek help after it emerged she is allegedly sinking two bottles of vodka a day, now her friends are said to have intervened too. After the nasty bar brawl allegedly Lindsay Lohan got into last week in New York she is reportedly hitting the alcohol hard.
It means she has violated her probation again – meaning possible jail time.
To add insult to injury Lindsay’s bank accounts have been frozen by the IRS after failing to pay tax from 2009- 2011, TMZ claims.
The Liz & Dick star is apparently refusing to go to rehab…even though she has been charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly hitting a woman in a Manhattan night club.
According to TMZ, close friends of Lohan’s are urging her to check into a treatment facility before she has appear in court as it could curry favor with the judge.
However, Lohan has emphatically told them she does not have an alcohol problem and has used the fact she has recently completed three movies as proof, the website also reports.
And though Lohan is ‘worried’ about the upcoming hearing the 26-year-old still refuses to go to rehab to avoid jail time.
This comes just a few days after her father Michael apparently implored her to check into the Betty Ford clinic.
‘I just want her to go into rehab. I love her and I just want her to get the help she needs,’ he told told HollyScoop.com.
However his pleas have fallen on deaf ears as Lohan refuses to speak to him after he leaked a private phone conversation between them to the press, apparently saying he is ‘dead to her’.
Michael added: ‘I have called, but of course she has not picked up.’
He said in another report: ‘Do I believe Lindsay the new reports that Lindsay is drinking two litres of vodka a day?
‘I believe she’s drinking to drown her sorrows. When I was at the Chateau Marmont I saw bottles. People tell me what she’s doing.’
