Lindsay Lohan ‘adamant’ that she not be forced into rehab until after Coachella

I completely forgot that Coachella was coming up. It will probably be the second week of April, maybe? Sorry, hippies, Coachella is barely on my radar – I’m old and I don’t care for music festivals, Porto-potties, Gerard Butler slobber or overpriced bottles of water. Although I probably would have liked last year’s Hologram Tupac. I am genuinely sorry I didn’t see that. Anyway, Coachella is coming up very soon and wouldn’t you know, our favorite cracktastrophe wants to make sure that she doesn’t check into rehab and miss the amazing Crackella festival.

During the last minute plea talks between Lindsay Lohan‘s attorney, Mark Heller, and prosecutors handling her lying to cops case, the wayward actress told him to keep her out of rehab until AFTER the Coachella music festival so she could attend, is exclusively reporting.

“Lindsay was adamant that she not be forced to go to rehab until after the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in the Palm Springs area on successive weekends in April. Lindsay LOVES going to the musical festival, and she’s determined to go this year. She didn’t want a little thing like rehab to get in her way of attending. Linds refused to sign off on any deal that would have prevented her from going to Coachella, period. Yes, it’s that important to her, for some strange reason,” a source told exclusively.

Perhaps Lilo’s new romance with musician and club promoter, Avi Snow, has made the Mean Girls star,26, even more resolute in her determination to go to the concerts.

Lohan has attended the Coachella music festival in 2010, 2011, and 2012. This year’s festivities take place on April 12, 14, 19, 21, and the line-up includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Lumineers, Moby, and the Airborne Toxic Event.

Avi was said to be on the Mr. Pink private jet that flew Lindsay to Los Angeles early Tuesday morning for her day in court. And after Lindsay posed for her latest mug shot, she hot-footed it to City of the Sun’s show at private club 41 Ocean in Santa Monica.

As we previously reported, during a plea deal that Lohan reached last week in her lying to cops case, the actress was ordered to enroll in a rehab facility, by no later than mid-May. This will be Lohan’s SIXTH trip to rehab since 2007, and she’s spent a total of 250 days getting treatment for alcohol and prescription drug abuse.

“Lindsay will be treated for prescription drug and alcohol addiction during her stay,” a source previously told Radar. “Lindsay’s prescription drugs of choice are Adderall and Xanax, and in addition, she consumes large amounts of alcohol — specifically, vodka. The main problem when it comes to Lindsay ever getting sober is her absolute denial that she has any substance abuse issues. Once again, she is only going to rehab purely because it’s a slightly more attractive alternative than going to jail. Of course, there is hope that once Lindsay is undergoing treatment she will recognize that she does in fact have a problem — but given her history, it’s very doubtful.”

The saddest aspect of “Lindsay’s criminal history is that it’s all traced back to her addiction issues. Everyone around Lindsay has tried to get her sober — her father Michael, three judges, two prosecutors, and two criminal defense attorneys. She is in absolute denial about her addiction issues and doesn’t want to get sober. It’s just not a lifestyle she wants,” the insider told us.

[From Radar]

I wonder if the prosecution knew that Lindsay was drawing out the negotiations because she wanted to get blitzed at a music festival? Probably. It’s LA. The prosecutor was probably like, “Dude, can I get a ride?” But I’ll tell you one weird thing… I make a lot of “jokes” about Lindsay being a prostitute and how she gets “work” but the idea of a wayward hooker at the Coachella festival doesn’t really jive. Meaning… I think she’s going to Coachella for FUN, not because she’s being “paid”. Does that make it better?

Also – Lindsay was actually early to Anger Management set yesterday. She showed up before her 10 am call time! No worries, I’m sure it was just an accident.

    She won’t go to rehab/jail. Crackroaches always find a way out.

  2. logan says:

    Well it does seem that you are in charge. If this twit wasn’t on gossip sites or in gossip magazines for her mix ups with the law no one would even know who she was. Still waitin Karma.
    And please don’t compare this person to Robert Downey Jr. Folks over on TMZ are still doing that. Robert Downey has talent. Robert Downey has heart. Robert Downey has a true respect for what he does. Robert Downey paid for his mistakes, pulled himself up and has become a great actor. Lindsay Lohan spits in the face of society every chance she gets. She has no heart, respect for no one and will never be anything more than a gossip site headline. Beside all that she is starting to look like a walker on Walking Dead.

  3. Sarcasmo says:

    Great. I’ll have to warn my friends in Indio to stay off the road and keep their kids at home. Or maybe they can take a vacation or something.

    Kaiser, lmao @ “I’m old and I don’t care for Porto-potties!” :D And I’m certain she’s still being paid to attend, because otherwise how could she afford it?

  4. Hannah says:

    Well, it is a festival for losers.

    • DreamyK says:

      Really? Have you ever been to Coachella? I have, several times. It’s not some hippy fest or for losers. It IS a music festival and an eclectic mix of artists so there is something for everyone.

      I brought my kids to the last one I attended, the oldest was 17 and the youngest was 10. There were lots of kids in attendance.

      No one really drinks at these things because it’s flaming HOT there and water is what it’s all about. There was much much more smoking of the ganja at Vegoose.

      I’ll be taking both my kids to Bonnaroo next year. Can’t wait.

  5. Sisi says:

    every time I think she cannot look any worse for wear. And then after a year we see those same pics, and I think ‘Dang, compared to now she didn’t look that bad back then’. Mindboggling.

  6. marie says:

    she wants to get another arrest in before going to rehab..

  7. brin says:

    I love how Crackie gets to call all the shots. Why isn’t anyone giving her a random drug test…this chick needs one.

    • Babette says:

      I was thinking the same thing! Since when does a criminal get to dictate when she gets her punishment? If any of these losers had a brain, they’d dish out that punishment when it IS least convenient for her…it’s called consequences, and punishment is supposed to “hurt” and deter future bad actions. Eh, who am I kidding…with the Cracken’s entitlement, she will NEVER understand consequences.

  8. Celeste says:

    Nobody cares what she does anymore. She’s a human punchline.

  9. elceibeno says:

    A three-month rehab program for Lindsey is going to be a nightmare. Can you imagine being addicted to drugs and alcohol, then going into a place where she is going to have to discuss it –which will make her crave drugs and alcohol, but she won’t be able to get any. She is going to suffer withdrawals so much.

    On a positive note, Lindsey actually looks good in this picture.

  10. Sarcasmo says:

    Well, Xanax and vodka certainly explain a lot about her visage whilst in court!

  11. Tulip Garden says:

    Makes complete sense that a grown @ss adult looking at zillions of charges/rehab/court time is most concerned about attending a music festival!!!
    I cannot imagine what goes on in her head but that must be a damn delusional place to live.

  12. Mayday says:

    They probably told her to be there at 730am to get her there at 10am.

  13. Mich says:

    Kaiser – I always get a little nostalgic when you diss the Butler. I remember well when you were his biggest fan girl ;-)

  14. Susie Q says:

    OMG! What a loser. I defended her for quite some time but she has become indefensible. After this ridiculous statement it obvious rehab is a waste of time, just get it over, throw her crack ass in jail and throw away the key.

  15. Devon says:

    Isn’t she subject to random search and seizures, which include drug tests? This trick just gave the cops a date for her next “random” drug test! How thoughtful of her.

  16. Michelle says:

    *say something nice, say something nice*

    I really love the shoes. I have the same ones in dark blue.

  17. Alli says:

    Funny how the last paragraph says “everyone around her wants her to get better” but Dina’s name isn’t on the list. Typo, right?

  18. Amy says:

    I think it’s a very true statement that sobriety “isn’t a lifestyle she wants.” And unfortunately, until she wants to be clean and healthy more than she wants the freedom to get blitzed, no one–not her family, not the courts (not even the wise people who love gossip blogs)–will be able to help her. It’s the same way I’m not going to stop being a fatty until I am ready to give up the cheeseburger-and-sitting-on-my-backside lifestyle. I DO worry for Lindsay, and for the innocent people on the roads with her. At a certain point (and honestly I would have thought we’d be there by now) she may need to be locked up for the safety of others as well as herself. I just don’t understand how many chances she is going to be given when she doesn’t seem to appreciate them or want to change

    • Tulip Garden says:

      Completely off topic but…you really don’t have to give up the cheeseburger. Just give up the fries. You don’t have to do pilates, yoga or aerobics for hours either, just take a walk every night. I took my own advice a couple years ago and dropped 15 lbs. I’ve given up the walk but have maintained the new weight and healthier eating (with occasional splurge). I’ll probably start walking again this summer.

      • Amy says:

        Thanks– I was actually a little tongue in cheek there. I do weight watchers, and one of the reasons I like it is that I CAN eat whatever I want, as long as I account for it. It’s a much more livable lifestyle than the deprivation diets I’ve done in the past. I lost 60 pounds, but have kind of slacked off and put some of it back on, so I’m back in the saddle again. (I was walking daily, but an ankle sprain has taken me out of the game for a while). Good for you on maintaining the weight loss! :)

        I was just trying to relate to Lindsay’s problems a bit! I don’t do smack, but I have had a bit of a cupcake problem, and nobody could make me get healthier until I was ready to do the work myself.

    • erika says:

      amy, sounds like you got heart, and a wee bit of fight in ya! Dont be too hard on yourself : )

    • Sandy Pandy says:

      Don’t be so nice Amy, lol. We need more comments like, “aw, she got her hair and lips done and her makeup is still intact”.

  19. Nev says:

    “Dude can I get a ride?”


  20. erika says:

    sigh…im tired of typing the same thing over and over…tired of fighting her.

    go child…go w/ God. go to your coachella and get lolly jolly jack hammered outta your mind….just try and not pee on the daisies…..too much to ask?

    we have to have faith that a time will come. no matter what your spiritual beliefs (and karma is a good one) we have to believe in the scientific laws of energy… what you put out there (and who sticks it in ya you tarty wench) will eventually come back to you. that’s the law of science. ‘

    be patient my congregation, time will tell. now can i get a hallejulah AMEN!

  21. Lizzie K says:

    Lindsay knows something that the rest of us need to really come to terms with. The law does not apply to her. She’s LINDSAY LOHAN. I know we all know this, but we haven’t really considered what it means.

    If you see her driving on the freeway, cut her off and run her off the road. You won’t get in trouble, because the rules don’t apply. She’s LINDSAY LOHAN. If the cops try to hassle you anyway, deny you were driving and blame it on the black guy. Even the greenest rookie cop will recognize the LINDSAY LOHAN defense and back right off. If you see her on the street, beat the hell out of her and steal her coat. Nothing will happen to you, because she’s LINDSAY LOHAN.

    Our mistake has been trying to bring the law into it. The law has nothing to do with it. This is between us and LINDSAY LOHAN.

  22. cutelittlehappything says:

    Eh. She better stay away from Kiedis!

  23. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    Why should she get to decide when she goes to rehab? No one in this girls life wants her to only get better. They want her to start making money again and that’s priority #1. How is it she’s still in charge of her own finances at his point either? She clearly can’t be trusted with her hand to mouth lifestyle.

    She needs to be forced into a lock down rehab involuntarily for at least 60 days.

  24. lucy2 says:

    And again I say the judge told her to not go where drugs and alcohol are – so she’s spending her pre-rehab time at clubs and music festivals. If I were that judge I’d throw her in jail/rehab TODAY. Since when do criminals get to pick and choose when and where they are to go into lock up?

    If they get her into a really hard core rehab for 90 days, where she doesn’t sneak out or get drugs, she might realize she feels different and acknowledge a problem. But I doubt it.

  25. grabbyhands says:

    The sick thing is, they’ll probably let her do it. Just like she’s going to end up getting out of lockdown rehab because they don’t have one in NY or LA-she’ll probably end up in a spa rehab that she’ll sneak out of for which there will be no punishment. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    • marye42 says:

      And when LL dies watch both her parents sue the state of California for not helping her.

    • Bodhi says:

      It isn’t that there aren’t any in LA or NY, there aren’t any AT ALL. The prosecutors really dropped the ball, shocking, I know.

      • jwoolman says:

        Yes, lockdown rehab exists. Court-ordered rehab in place of jail sentences is common enough that the need is there. The facility doesn’t have to be dedicated just to the lockdown rehabbers. It just means the rehabber has to stay at the facility for the allotted time, no passes, no half-way houses – just as Lindsay’s judge said at time of sentencing. It doesn’t mean armed guards or barred windows. The facility has to notify the court if the lass goes missing and then a warrant is issued for her arrest. The easiest way to be sure in her case would be to put electronic monitoring on her. Personally, I also suggest installing a GPS microchip… One of my cats carries a pager on her collar that beeps and flashes when I press a button on the locator unit. For a little more money, I could get a model that will alert me if the feline escape artist (we have an allegedly catproof fence) goes beyond a preset distance. If I can keep track of my prisoner, surely they can keep track of Lindsay for a mere 90 days.

  26. Katy says:

    With the way she is looking, I think there is a good chance she will not be alive by the time she goes to rehab.

  27. JL says:


    Well then that should do it.

    Shut up you drugged, loaded, Barfly bitch. No One cares what you want anymore.

    As for showing up early – well yeah, Charlie had the dope, tiger blood whatever you call it on him and girl can move booty for a score.

  28. mata says:

    According to Dlisted, the prosecutors are discovering that there may not be such a thing as lock down rehab anywhere in the country, as in no rehab in the country will keep you against your will. The only one is in NY and that’s if you have a felony. She may wind up in jail, after all. (Probably for 8 minutes.)

    • Mich says:

      There are some others. I think Corpus Christi has one, for example. They are known as TAIP ‘Treatment Alternative to Incarceration Punishment’ and they are far from the luxury spa like centers Lohan is used to. I don’t think you can just enroll in one, however. They seem to work with the court systems (which makes sense). The judge and prosecutor should have known this.

      • jwoolman says:

        The judge didn’t mean anything more than what he said – residential rehab with no passes. She has to stay at the rehab (on the premises) the full 90 days or she gets arrested. Many regular rehabs can handle such lockdown conditions. They just have to agree to notify the authorities if she leaves and have reasonable checks on the whereabouts of their residents. Often they have such conditions routinely for at least the first 30 days for everybody.

  29. She showed up early to work with Charlie and you think it was an accident? No way, this trick knows he has the good drugs!!! She showed up early to get high and earn another 100,000 check on the side!

  30. Audrey says:

    This reminds me of that teen mom girl refusing to go to jail or rehab or something cause she’d miss a kesha concert


  31. Yelly says:

    Maybe I’m out of it, but what the f is Coachella? Is it like Woodstock? Ultra?

  32. janie says:

    What a sad state of affairs… No one cares enough to stop her. I thank God i don’t live in LA.

  33. Nicolette says:

    What craziness is this here? Why the f**k should she call any shots? It really pisses me off that celebs get a free pass all the time. She’s deciding when she goes in? And after Coachella it will be something else and so on. Slap some damn cuffs on her and haul her crackie ass in already. What nonsense.

  34. RF says:

    New Lindsay blind item from Naughty But Nice Rob.

    Climbed Out Of The Window When Police Arrived At Party – Guess Who? Which troubled actress that is now better know for her troubles with the law than any work she has done in years, was caught climbing out of a window of a Beverly Hills mansion after the house party got interrupted by the police.

    The private party was assumed to be a ‘safe place’ to engage in illegal activities until the cops arrived after complaints about the noise.

    The house was full of some of Los Angeles hardest party kids and even they were worried about the young star that certainly knows her way around a courtroom!

  35. dcypher1 says:

    $700 for 3 days u trippin girl. I can think of a million better ways to spend $700 and it aint on no stupid concert. Thats a lot of money to me thats almost my rent. Its not just $700 either u need more money than that to go.

  36. Jessica says:

    As far as I’m concerned, she can just OD and die already.

    she’s a lost cause so nobody should feel sorry for her (I certainly don’t).

  37. Asiyah says:

    Priorities–this b*tch has them!

  38. sashavice says:

    She showed up at 9:15 because she thought that the appointment was at 8. So she really should have been an hour and 15 minutes late.

  39. lunamiel says:

    Does anyone else remember when Coachella was just a quirky little music festival in the middle of the desert? When exactly did all of the cheesy B and C list celebrities muck it up?

  40. Holden says:

    This makes perfect sense to me, she’s not going to rehab to rehab, she’s going to avoid jail. She’s been through it enough times to play game and say what they’ll want to hear and then she’ll be right back out doing the same shit again. I can’t believe she’s only 26, wow.

  41. Bess says:

    I don’t understand why this is such a big deal. She has to do 90 days of rehab and not get any day passes. If she leaves for whatever reason, she goes directly to jail.

  42. Debbie says:

    “‘Yes, it’s that important to her, for some strange reason,’ a source told exclusively.”

    I LOL’ed.

  43. Bess says:

    Also, another site is reporting that LL showed up to the Anger Management set early and did a good job playing herself. Since when is showing up on time for work and acting professionally cause for celebrating? Millions of people do it every day. Why are we praising this woman for doing something that everyone does on a daily basis?

  44. BobbieFisher says:

    I honestly think she is being paid in cash under the table by these bands to fake these relationships so the bands get on people’s radar. I think it’s all set up by Mike Heller and the reason she wants to go to Coachella is I think they’re paying her to appear. I really wish the IRS would investigate her further and really track her outrageous shopping sprees and spending – the money is coming from somewhere.

    • crazycatlady says:

      I agree with your latter comment – I wonder how she can be in debt to so many people, yet always have the latest most expensive clothes/shoes/purses on her person. There can’t be that many designers willing to stoop so low as to give her free shit. They give shit to celebs they want to “represent” their brand.

      Which leads into the former of your comments – Why on earth would a good-looking young musician on the brink of some success want to sully his reputation by making people watch him smooching on a trainwrecked skank like LL? Unless the band’s shtick was all about skankiness (which this band clearly doesn’t appear to be about), all it does is make him look like he’s desperate or ? something.

  45. Kate says:

    I wouldn’t wish death on anyone, but it does make me sad that Amy Winehouse, who was basically a kind person as well as a hugely talented one, and who was trying very hard to come to terms with her addictions, died, while Lohan is throwing each and every chance away with both hands. I appreciate Lohan’s life was effectively destroyed by her parents before she was old enough to know better and Winehouse had a loving family… but at this stage, one gave a lot to the world in general and needy people in particular, whereas the other may well end up committing vehicular manslaughter before she’s done. Just seems mismatched. I know life isn’t fair, but still.

  46. bettyrose says:

    I have nothing against Coachella – although I’m not into music festivals in general because I’m not very outdoorsy and I prefer to see ONE band I love, not dozens I barely know – but if you happen to live in SoCal, Coachella and Burning Man are great times to enjoy your city clearing out for a few days.

  47. Kosmos says:

    She has long enjoyed being the subject of intolerance in the public eye…this is sad. She is the butt of bad jokes everywhere. Does she encourage this as much as possible to keep her name relevant? Better than no name mentioned, right? Since she doesn’t appear to have any true interest in her own rehabilitation, I don’t care what she does, but please… take that drivers’ license away!!
