Lindsay Lohan -- Failed Drug Tests Could Ruin Career

9/18/2010 12:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has a long-term career problem in the wake of her two failed drug tests -- the judge in the case could derail her comeback.

0917Lindsay_lohan_EX_TMZ_04
Lindsay is now relying on Judge Elden Fox to allow her to leave California to shoot "Inferno" in Louisiana and possibly fly to New York City for "Saturday Night Live."

Here's the problem.  Sources connected with the case have been telling TMZ ... if Lindsay were to fail a drug test the judge would probably pull the plug on out-of-state-travel -- a privilege for Lindsay, not a right.

TMZ broke the story that Lindsay failed two tests ... one for cocaine last week.

The judge has been pretty gracious, allowing Lindsay to visit NYC to see her family last weekend.  But all bets are off now that Lindsay has flunked two tests.

And sources close to Lindsay somehow already know the big wigs on "Inferno" are pissed that she may have screwed up again, so flying to Louisiana may be a moot question.

As for future projects ... good luck getting insurance for a Lindsay Lohan flick.

AimHi    

It seems like the press/media are the only ones interested in Lindsay Lohan. I don't know one person who has paid to see one of her movies, thinks she's fashionable or attractive, or anticipates her next movie or a wack appearance on SNL. Seriously. GTFOH.

First off #1 Charles Manson is no longer in San Quentin his in Corcoran State Prison. Get your facts straight.

Lindsay however, should be incarcerated longer. And remain there the entire sentence.

Dirty drug test(s)should result in a longer stay that will not be shortened. It does a criminal no favors nor society.

Seriously, the fool has been in one mildly hit movie that was actually decent (Mean Girls) and it's her co-stars that have gone on to much bigger and better careers (Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Tina Fey). Since then it's been bomb after bomb and before the conviction it was just leading to D-level porn anyway. Much like Paris Hilton, she's more famous for her dumb off-screen antics. Paris is not the person you want to be compared to if you're aiming to become a respectable actor. What a waste.

Well it didn't take long for her to screw up again. I have a question: based on what we know it seems she's failed 2 drug tests, which she's admitted to and have been confirmed, why is there going to be a hearing; why don't they throw her in jail for parole violation (that's what would happen to the us unknowns)? We know she won't be in jail that long anyway--what maybe a couple of hours at most, it will only be an inconvenience for her.

Travel for the purpose of working is something courts are slow to pull, even for DUI convictions.

Lohan probably will be able to work. No sense in increasing the time she's under court supervision. That's just a waste. No sense increasing fines because the court can never get to a number that will hurt her.

She's on a early death trajectory and the court should stay clear of it. The only thing that makes sense is to incarcerate her for short periods until her probation expires.

If Lindsay does manage to turn her personal life around she will still find it quite difficult to obtain acting jobs.

Robert Downey Jr. is often cited as an example of an actor who hit bottom but was able to resuscitate both his personal and professional life. Although it's ironic given recent events, RDJ was given his one chance to prove himself by Mel Gibson. After he was released from jail, RDJ could not get any jobs because he was not insurable. Gibson, an old friend, not only offered him a role in a film but paid for the entire production insurance bond out of his own pocket.

There are very few people around who have the financial wherewithal to make such a gesture. Thus, the odds of Lindsay catching such a break are slim. This is not a judgment about Lindsay's abilities as an actor, but I'm sure the fact that RDJ had been nominated for an Oscar and an Emmy and had proved that he could carry a film were factors in Gibson's decision to aid his friend. Lindsay has yet to prove herself.

I recommend that she graduate to either speedballs or straight-up heroin. I've read that it's the ultimate high. Ask John Belushi.... oh, wait. Ask River Phoenix.... oh, wait. Hmmm.. ask Layne Staley... oh, wait. Ask Brad Nowell... oh, wait. How 'bout DJ AM, Shannon Hoon, Brad Renfro, Glenn Quinn, Anissa Jones, Paula Yates, Gram Parsons... oh, wait. Just ask Courtney Love.... she'll not only recommend smack, she might even share.

Remember that really talented and funny comedian John Belushi?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVMsON5wOY0&feature=related

Belushi died in a room at the "Chateau Marmont" hotel in L.A. where Lindsay Lohan and some of her "friends" like hang out and party. Party animals often DIE ... very young.

I wonder if Lindsay will ever "get it" or if she'll simply go down the SAME stupid path that other famous entertainers go down with booze and drugs. You know, the "smart" ones who think ... "it won't happen to ME ... I'm special, I can handle these drugs ... leave me alone". Famous LAST words.

There goes Dina's 401K Plan!

Damn you Lindsay! Look at what you are doing to your enabling lying mother. Now she'll have to fire her butler and get rid of her driver and then tell Juanita she can only clean her house one a week.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!

I hope that she OD's soon. She thinks it's all a joke. She has gotten her ass kissed too many times. And , no, she is not hot. She is all used up and her breath smells like fish. What a waste product. Literally.

Let's get real people. She will buy her way out ala Paris Hilton. You see there is a different justice for the rich and famous.
