First: UGH, the lips are KILLING me. They look painful. Okay, moving on… Shortly after Lindsay Lohan was ordered back to rehab until January, Radar excerpted parts from the official reports the Betty Ford Clinic had to submit, in addition to Shawn Chapman Holley’s defense on Lindsay’s behalf. During the hearing, Lindsay claimed that she needed to get out of rehab because she was broke, she needed to work, and she couldn’t afford the $50,000-plus it likely costs to be at the clinic for an additional two-three months. PopEater’s sources back up Lindsay’s claims:
You would think that Lindsay Lohan would be jumping for joy since a judge decided to order her back to rehab rather than to jail, however, sources tell me neither option made the troubled actress very happy. Why? Because the strapped ‘Mean Girls’ star will now need to find a sponsor to help cover her bill at the Betty Ford Center.
“Lindsay can’t afford to pay for treatment,” a friend told me after Superior Court Judge Elden Fox ordered her to remain there until Jan. 3. “Three months at the facility will cost her almost $50,000, which she doesn’t have.”
Lohan’s probation report confirms that the star’s “clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product,” and any money she hoped to earn from filming ‘Inferno’ will have to wait until she leaves rehab.
“There is simply no money left,” an insider tells me. “Lindsay manages to live high off the generosity of others; however, asking for free clothes and dinners at fancy restaurants is one thing, asking for $50,000 cash is something totally different. Her people tried and failed to sell her first post rehab interview for big bucks, so her only option now is to find some sort of sponsor.”
So Lindsay is having to crack hustle to see if anyone can pay her rehab bills. What happened to the six-figure check she got to leave Ungaro? What happened to all of her “modeling”? What happened to all of the money the paparazzi give her for posing for candid shots? I guess she snorted all of that money. Maybe she should try selling some of the jewelry she’s grifted over the years, like the diamond necklace she’s wearing in these photos. And another complaint she had – that she needed to be out of rehab to monitor her 6126 leggings line – well, it turns out that was probably untrue as well. TMZ reports that a source close 6126 says “the company hasn’t missed a beat … because Lindsay has been sketching like crazy since checking into Betty Ford. Sources tell TMZ Lindsay doodled her designs for both the Fall 2011 collection and the Spring 2012 line. We’re told Lindsay is actually a micro-manager, approving almost every detail.” So you mean Lindsay LIED about why she wanted to get out of rehab?!? I’m SO SHOCKED.
