People: Lindsay Lohan ‘hasn’t changed whatsoever, she’s still… drinking a lot’

Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2019 - Celebrity Sightings

It was less than two months ago when Lindsay Lohan attacked #MeToo victims as “weak” and “attention seeking.” I didn’t hold back – I believed then that Lindsay has never changed, that she’s still the same cracked-out a–hole as before. Some people tried to defend her, and some even claimed that she really had changed. Then she tried to kidnap two refugee children on Friday night while she live-streamed it. Are people still defending her? Are people still claiming that she’s misunderstood, that she’s a victim? I hope not. Because it sounds like she’s still the same old Cracken.

Lindsay Lohan apparently hasn’t changed her ways. Following a disturbing video Lohan, 32, posted on Instagram Live over the weekend in which she appeared to get hit in the face by a stranger, a source close the actress tells PEOPLE, “Lindsay hasn’t changed whatsoever. She’s still partying very hard and drinking a lot. She’s a nightmare to those around her.”

A rep for Lohan did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

TMZ had a story too, but they framed it as “Lindsay’s loved ones are very worried about her and want her to come home.” Which… I mean, she’s been living overseas for several years now. She “works” in Greece, Russia and the Middle East. Why would she come home?

Lindsay Lohan’s friends are so alarmed about her mental state after accusing a homeless family of trafficking children and then getting punched in the face in Moscow … they’re practically begging her to return to the States. Sources close to Lindsay tell us her buddies are making a full-court press to get her back with people who will take care of her. We’re told a close friend of Lindsay has strong ties to Cincinnati and wants her there for 2 reasons — his circle of friends who will support her, and the fact it’s a paparazzi-free zone.

The plan was set in motion in reaction to Lindsay’s bizarre video where she tailed a family in Moscow and accused them of child trafficking in several languages before getting punched in the face. There’s no evidence the kids were being trafficked.

The wild card … Lindsay is shooting her reality show at her beach club in Mykonos … and moving to the U.S. could derail the show. Lindsay’s friends are also worried she might be in Moscow to meet up with her ex, mega-rich Russian Egor Tarabasov … after her claims to friends he was abusive. We’re told Lindsay is currently in Paris with her publicist, Hunter Frederick … we reached out to Hunter, but he wouldn’t comment. Whatever’s going on with Lindsay, her friends think she’s better off in America.

[From TMZ]

Real question: does Lindsay still have genuine friends in America? Or did she alienate all of them? Did she steal from them? Did they enable her messiness? I don’t want to say that Lindsay is a lost cause, but I do want to say that people need to stop coddling her and treating her like she’s just a “messed up kid” who can be turned around if only she gets out of the spotlight. She’s been out of the spotlight for years, and she still finds ways to be f–king terrible.

She was pap’d in Paris yesterday:

    Where were these so called friends years ago? Why didn’t they bring her to Cincinnati then? One day reality will hit her in the face and it’s going to get ugly.

    • margie says:

      I would love to know what friends she has in Cincinnati…I don’t think anyone wants her here. Stay in Greece.

  2. Sayrah says:

    I’m honestly surprised she’s not dead yet because of the life she’s lived. I hope she can turn it around but it looks like a combination of substance abuse and mental illness.

    • Murphy says:

      She’s one of those indestructible rat people, I wouldn’t be surprised if she lived to be 80.

    • LadyT says:

      I have the utmost sympathy for people suffering from mental illness. But none for Lindsay. Too much privilege, too many opportunities to get straight. Although I’m sure technically she could be diagnosed with this, that, and the other, and drugs have fried her brain—I think the most accurate “diagnosis” is still asshole.

  3. Veronica S. says:

    I mean, she’s clearly an addict, and that’s a shame, but…she’s also an asshole. Plenty of mentally ill people and addicts don’t behave the way she does. She has been given many, many chances by other celebrities to clean up her act and refuses to.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I completely agree. The way she treats people is just horrible.

      • Catfoodjunkie says:

        Her main problem continues to be her family. They endorse every move she makes and they still “need” her to be popular so they can grift and avoid, you know, actual work…so that’s unlikely to change. They tell her over and over to “go to the light” when criticism slithers in, bc she’s a victim of EVERYTHING. She’s a privileged a*hole, amongst a family of wanna-be privileged a*holes.

  4. Michael says:

    Personally, I love reading about her cracked out antics with my morning coffee. Celebitchy use to be all over her back in her prime crack days. Now all I see on here is what a certain somebody is wearing every day, big deal. More Lohan I say.

    • Bettyrose says:

      Michael,

      Agreed that those were good times when CB was all about the the crack drama. But It’s cool that the site has evolved with changing times, and I like the daily run down of Drumpf’s fashion choices. (That’s who you meant, right?)

    • Catfoodjunkie says:

      @michael Too right ! I care not in the least to read somebody’s idea of what is good fashion. I scroll right past that s*it.

  5. Kaye says:

    Why does she always look so insufferably smug?

  6. Alisha says:

    Did anyone think she was going to change? Clearly she does not want to.

  7. Jen says:

    I heard firsthand from a close friend who spent a week or so with her at a club she was “working” at that she still drinks heavily. The same friend also said she is, in fact, a delusional ahole who takes zero responsibility for anything.

    • Kathryn says:

      I’ve always thought she has undiagnosed Narcissistic Personality Disorder. It explains the manipulation, the lack of accountability, and lack of empathy toward others. It’s very clear nothing is ever her fault (just look at The Canyons NYT piece)

      • Molly says:

        That Narcissistic Personality Disorder was fully on display on that Oprah reality show. It would have been really sad had it not been so infuriating.

      • jwoolman says:

        I think at one time people were saying she was diagnosed as borderline, maybe when she was at a psychiatric facility for evaluation before getting sentenced for probation violation (before she stole the jewelry).

        Every judge she came into contact with seemed to think she had trouble understanding the proceedings, based on the way they talked with her. They also included mandatory therapy in the sentence, the last judge to sentence her I think said three times a week.

        Borderline would be a more hopeful diagnosis, if she ever develops enough self-awareness. People with borderline tend to know something is wrong and they want to change it. So more ways to cope with and treat the person with that diagnosis are available. Extreme narcissism seems hopeless because the person typically does not think anything is wrong with them.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        She understood the court proceedings enough to paint “f you” on her fingernails and then press them to her mouth in the direction of the judge.

        She has a rich person’s attitude towards the law. She knows it exists, she just doesn’t think it should apply to her.

      • Kathryn says:

        @Jwoolman I could see that too. She has massive abandonment issues, plenty of profiles/people talk about how she can’t be alone not even for a few minutes and is constantly surrounding herself with people, which is a big part of BDP. I could see that’s where all the addictions come in so she doesn’t have to be with her own thoughts..

    • lobstah says:

      @Jen – Go on…….

  8. Pandy says:

    Where does she get her $$ for all this travel? Russia, Paris, back to Greece … I can’t believe she’d be a draw as a working girl?

    • Murphy says:

      She does overseas where she can bill herself as a mysterious and experienced former Hollywood film star

    • Mia4s says:

      It’s actually not that surprising she’s able to “stay in business”. Tara Reid managed it until she was 40.

      None of it is pleasant to think about.

    • raincoaster says:

      Yes, new money is desperate for any kind of pedigree, even “dating at personal expense someone who was once A Thing in Hollywood and probably won’t live out her 30′s”.

  9. Murphy says:

    I don’t think anyone cares enough to defend her, maybe Dina but no one else.

  10. Lala11_7 says:

    Honestly…when you THINK of the things that Lohan HAS to do…to maintain that lifestyle…

    I would drink as much as any fish EVERYDAY of the week too! (Actually, I would rather work the front counter at Wendy’s before I even CONSIDERED doing…what…I KNOW…she has to do…)

    And Lindsey NEVER had a home full of people who would take care of her in the first place…which…when you think of it…is one of the BIGGEST part of the problem with her…

    It’s sad…because last year…it looked like she was in England…and she was working on a show…and she looked like she was back on the right trail….

    Sigh…

    • Bettyrose says:

      IKR? It’s hard not to have some sympathy when thinking about the horrors she’s endured since early childhood. But then her personality disorder has prevented her from benefitting from all the help that’s been offered. It’s a tragic story all around.

    • Alisha says:

      It is sad but she has had so many opportunities and second chances – more than most people get – and she flushed them away. Even Oprah got fed up with her! People have tried and tried to give her a come back and they all got burned.

    • jwoolman says:

      But that particular show did not demand much from her as an actor. She could read lines straight from what she was holding.

      People who saw her on stage said she was very wooden in her delivery and just tuned out when someone else was speaking rather than reacting to them. And she tended to forget her lines even late in the run.

      She may have thought that it would bring more acting work, but I doubt that it really did. She surprised people by actually showing up regularly, which was a vast improvement. But she just isn’t a very good actor. That was obvious in other chances she was given previously in movies and tv shows and skits. She just didn’t do well. She couldn’t even play herself well in Oprah’s reality show.

      Whatever potential she showed as a kid began evaporating by her mid to late teens. If you watch Mean Girls, you can see how weak an actor she was compared to everybody else. She was really dull by Herbie. Really, the car was more convincing.

    • raincoaster says:

      I interviewed something over 100 street prostitutes for a book I was working on, and they said that they used drugs to bear the work, which is the very definition of a vicious cycle.

  11. BaBaDook says:

    Finally caught up on the video and it is so insane. Imagine having to flee as a refugee and being met with a cracked out former child star trying to steal your children. Those people did not deserve to get Lohaned.

  12. Chaine says:

    I don’t think that she has ever had a “genuine” friend in her life. Her parents pushed her into child stardom and everyone around her exploited her from then on. She probably became accustomed to the notion that people use and exploit others, so that’s now her mode of operating, too.

    The pix of her in the black dress and hat, the DM had a ton more from that event and you could see that she had cuts and bruises and red sores all over her skin. She looked festering.

  13. Mich says:

    “she tailed a family in Moscow and accused them of child trafficking in several languages”

    Pigeon English with fake accents is a language?

  14. Leesa says:

    Didn’t Oprah try and fail to save her a few years ago with that reality show?
    She IS a lost cause.

  15. Leigh-Klein says:

    That black strap, could it be that she’s finally wearing a bra? About time.

  16. Bobafelty says:

    Legit question…why does her face look like it’s kind of melting off her skull? Is that weird puffiness/bloat a common side effect of drugs or drinking? I can’t think of anyone else I’ve ever seen with that particular look. Maybe Tori Spelling has that a bit? What is causing this??

    • Kathryn says:

      It’s puffiness from alcohol. Once I became aware of what that looked like, it’s scarily easy to spot who drinks too much, often their face is way out of proportion in regards to their frame. She is really skinny if you look at her legs/arms but her face is heavy. Hers in particular I think is so much excessive drinking for so long combined with periods of quitting it’s just been bloated and de-puffed so many times it has lost its elasticity

      • Catfoodjunkie says:

        Too, her belly is a blob … her attire has changed greatly to cover up her stomach. Lindsay is the picture of skinny fat.

  17. Lea says:

    She is an addict, she never got sober, she just hid in random countries where there is less press coverage.
    Sugar daddies are paying for her lifestyle (remember Korean Hulk ?). I don’t think they care if she is an addict or not as long as they can have fun with her.
    When you watch her videos she is always slurring and looks definitely out of it.
    I don’t think she has any friends, and I don’t think she is a nice person to hang out with.

  18. Electric Tuba says:

    She is literally dressed like a pimp from a B movie in the 80’s.

  19. Crassino Royale says:

    I do wish she’d recover. But hon’, people who manage to climb back on the wagon make drastic changes to their everyday life as in the hell away from the scene. She never left, just took the crazy elsewhere. The day we read she’s raising pigglets in Wyoming that’s the day we’ll know girlfriend made it safe to the other side.
    It ain’t happening. Poor woman. : (

  20. Cora says:

    I have always felt for her. She shows so many symptoms of borderline personality disorder. Wonder if she has been properly diagnosed.

  21. Blonde555 says:

    ‘drinking’…

  22. Bobbie says:

    She tried to abduct one child, ditch the father, which traffickers would do since they would put up a fight and would not be worth as much, she tried to separate them….when they wouldn’t come, threatened them… I’m starting to think maybe this is one big con by Lohan. This interest in Syrian refugees, Lohan is as always, desperate for money… I think LOHAN IS THE TRAFFICKER.
