Lindsay Lohan reportedly spending $2500 a day on a ‘sober companion’: LOL?

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan out and about in NYC yesterday with a “mystery man”. I suspect that this is the same mystery man that she’s been seen with in NYC for the past few weeks, although that’s not narrowing it down that much. She spends the daylight hours with this guy, who I think is her “sober companion” and then she spends the evenings partying like a crackhead with her new boyfriend.

According to Perez Hilton (yeah, I know), Lindsay was partying at a club called Raven a few nights ago. Perez says: “LiLo went out last night for New York Fashion Week and ended up PARTYING at a new club called Raven in the Meatpacking District. And she wasn’t alone! She showed up around 2:30 a.m. with a man she was calling her new boyfriend! And the relationship is so legit that she made sure to avoid talking to another man there who was an ex of hers!” Even though it’s Perez, I believe this. I’m primed to believe any story about the Cracken in a club at 2:30 am. It’s her natural habitat.

But what about the sober companion? Well, now that Lindsay has Oprah-money to blow (operative word: BLOW), it seems that LL is spending some money on the priciest sober companion money can buy.

Lindsay Lohan’s appearance on Tuesday as she wandered around Manhattan in black shorts and a slightly see through vest, suggested that she’s doing really rather well. And that might be in part thanks to her companion – a $2,500 a day ‘sober companion.’

Clearly keen to overcome her demons, Lindsay, 27, has hired the coach to help her stay on track and steer her away from temptation. But why does Lindsay need such an expensive service? Doug Caine, who runs Sober Champion, a stable of sober coaches with backgrounds in nursing, social work and psychology told PEOPLE: ‘You need to use your sober coach to bring treatment home, to the set, to the attorney’s office when you’re negotiating your next movie. Without bringing a sober coach to those places, she is highly likely to relapse.’

Linday’s decision to employ a coach to help her fight temptation is a good sign she might stay clean this time around. It’s unclear how much support Lindsay is getting from her sober companion, but some may sleep in the spare bedroom in the client’s house, join them for dinner, and accompany the client to to doctor and dentist appointments.

Lindsay is currently living in New York with her younger sister Ali, a model, and is focusing on her health following her much-reported troubles.

Where is her sober companion when she goes out gallivanting in the night? My guess is that he’s not the live-in sober companion she probably needs. He’s probably just some dude/enabler that Lindsay pays to make it look like she’s taking her sobriety seriously. I mean, seriously, $2500 A DAY? Maybe that’s the excuse Lindsay gave to Oprah for why she’s blowing (cough) through $2500 a day: “It’s for my sober companion! I swear it’s not cocaine! Promise!”

    I’d be her sober companion for $2500 a day.

      I would too ha. Am I the only one who thinks that she is making a little progress? I mean she’s not going to suddenly turn into a fresh/clean/innocent teeny bopper and I think that’s what some people are unfairly expecting. Yes she’s still awful and I can’t stand her, but considering her life style and her parents, we can’t really expect her to become an angel who never goes to clubs and never drinks. God it’s too early and I’m thinking way too hard about this lol

      • rtms says:

        Except that she has done this sort of thing each time she gets out of rehab. She just didn’t have a sober coach with her to check in with. Now she has to fool him and pay him off to look the other way.Each time she acts like she can go to clubs and parties and not take drugs etc yet ends up doing just that. It’s all a joke to her at this point.That whole Venice thing was just her slagging off her duties, nothing to do with staying sober as NY isn’t any better when it comes to parties. She fooled Oprah who I think will be seriously pissed when she finds out.

      • tyler says:

        I agree, I think this does, on the surface, seem like progress. I do hope the best for her. As a former addict, I know how easy it is to relapse, so it never surprised me, especially with all her money and enablers and sense of entitlement, that she always fell back into it. We’ll see. (Not a good sign that she’s going to clubs so soon though.)

    • Chloeee says:

      I was seriously like, “okay so I’d have to give up happy hour” but I could follow someone around for that much just to keep them on track.

      • k says:

        Actually she had a sober companion before, quite a few years ago when she was working a bit and had just come out of rehab (2008)I do think she has her moments of clarity, but being at clubs sounds sketchy. I don’t know any sober companion who would recommend that for someone so fresh out of rehab. I hope she can stay sober this time though.

  2. Macey says:

    I actually dont think thats enough to have to hang out with crackie all day, that alone would probably drive the sober companion to drink.

    Im really surprised she hasnt been arrested for anything yet. Maybe this guy also drives her everywhere too and if thats the case he deserves a lot more that $2500. a day.

  3. MonicaQ says:

    Hell yes! I’d do that. I’d even de-worm her, give her a flea and tick bath, put in a new weave and make sure she doesn’t wash her face in Meth every morning.

    And then after a month I’d run screaming into the night with more money and less sanity and a new appreciation for showers.

  4. Anoneemouse says:

    Never thought I’d say this about her but YOU GO GIRL! Best money you ever spent!

  5. dcypher1 says:

    I wouldn’t be her “sober” companion for all the money in the world. Like everyone else you’ll end up regretting it when Lindsay tries to put the blame on you like she always does. Never work with ll no matter what.

  6. HotPockets says:

    at least put a bra on! That was my only thought on this post.

  7. Zinjojo says:

    God, she needs to wear a bra!

  8. Mia 4S says:

    $2500 a day?! So in theory a sober companion working even 5 days on per week could make $600,000 a year?!

    Yeah…no. I think this is another one of these “look how hard she’s working…according to “unnamed sources”" stories.

    Wake me when she hosts the season premiere of SNL (oh wait, she’s not) or gets that pilot at HBO (riiigghhhttt).

    Seriously, I know we’ve all gotten used to throwing shade at Lilo, and for good reason. In general, I think the girl is an entitled POS with little chance of redemption. But I at least have to give her credit for *somewhat* trying. For Lilo, spending $2500 on a sober companion is actually trying, lol. I wish she would keep her @ss out of clubs, though.

  10. lovegossip says:

    That low hanging shirt does NOTHING for her low hanging boobs. Haha. Makes them look like they hang lower, if that’s possible. LOL :-D

  11. janie says:

    I wonder if the sober coach is being paid directly from Oprah? That makes more sense? God help her & good luck to her…

  12. TheCountess says:

    If it is really working, why any shade? Given her history, we all expected her to be busted for something right out of the box, yet so far, so good. So… good.

  13. Zorbitor says:

    Maybe we could put an implant in her brain that plays victim impact statements 24/7

  14. Mayda says:

    Boyfriend for newly sober person = recipe for disaster

  15. Ferris says:

    She looks happy and healthily lately. If having a sober coach is working for her than let her have one. I’m glad she is doing so well after rehab.

  16. Claudia says:

    Meh. Until I see pictures of this incident, I wont bother giving it any merit. I get that Lohan relapsing is good for gossip (and it is, blogs need constant material to keep going), hence people actively hoping she fails. But here’s the thing: she’s kept herself out of trouble so far, which is more than we can say for her when taking into account her past history. It’s not much, but it’s a lot better than what she’s done.

    She’s doing really good.

  17. lucy2 says:

    I don’t know if I would call partying at a club all night doing good, especially for someone with a lengthy history of quick relapses. She’s not changing her lifestyle at all, which is what needs to happen.

  18. KinChicago says:

    She’d be far better off putting the money in a fund for her future defense attorney when she hits someone while drunk drinking.

  19. Bess says:

    I’m thinking that Oprah hasn’t paid Lindsay in full yet. Oprah isn’t a fool. She knows Lohan’s history and is holding back the checks until LL fulfills all of her obligations.

  20. Return of the Pink Elephant says:

    $2500 a day just to tolerate/babysit that tw@t?! Holy guacamole!!!

    I…I realize now that I have wasted my life seeking college degrees, certification, and non-celebrity employment. Should’ve just gone for the jugular and became a leased out companion to the entitled. Is it too late to start? I’ll totally slap that glass of wine/straw/White Oprah’s phone call right outta her hand!

  21. Apsutter says:

    Ugh…her tits are down to her belly button

  22. smee says:

    Yeah, if the sober companion is not there 24/7, she’ll never stay clean.

    If she does stay clean, I hope she talks to someone about her criminal taste in footwear. Her legs are way too pale for black and the cut is a little too chunky for her weight and leg shape.

  23. Diane says:

    Where the heck does she get all this money? (and it’s not working on-line)

  24. Bridget says:

    I’d be more likely to believe that rehab took if she hadnt been in 3 different rehabs for her 90 day sentence, or if everything she leaked from rehab wasn’t about how she wasn’t an addict but that she was going to take this time for herself. Addicts are lairs and manipulators – it is the nature of their addiction. All this stuff: the skipping Venice, the sober companion, feels like it’s for show. To me, it’s more likely that she’s got better representation and PR vs a lasting change. And guess what? She’s an addict who’s behaved badly (including breaking many laws) for YEARS. It’s her job to prove to the world that she’s turned over a new leaf, and to know that people’s skepticism is justified. She won’t get the benefit of the doubt until she’s earned it.

  25. IceQueen says:

    In 20 years those breasts will reach her knees, they’ve already reached her belly-button.

    I hope she stays clean this time…

  26. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Personally, I think if she were taking her sobriety seriously, she’d be going to meetings where she could get a sponsor for free. But that sponsor would be a woman & would tell her to stay the hell out of clubs & that would disrupt her paparazzi cash flow.

  27. Str8Shooter says:

    Wasn’t she already wearing a ‘sober companion’ free of charge from the LAPD a few years ago?
