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.

People at SNL have already stated that she won't be doing the show. I'm not sure if it was because of this or if it was just a rumor that she was going to do it.

She isn't being thrown in jail yet because she is entitled to an official hearing to determine whether or not she violated and what the punishment will be.

She was always going to leave rehab early.
If there is no failed drug tests since 2007 and the doctors say she shouldn't be taking the prescriptions she has been since 07/08. Obviously she didn't need the 90 days and was forced to comply because it was court ordered.
30 days or 90 days wouldn't have made any difference because she was forced to be there and had no access to anything illcit.

There was no need for the extra probation in July when she still wasn't allowed to drive and got 90 days in jail.
The excessive sentence imposed by Judge Revel has and will continue to cost California a fortune.

She deserves what she gets, she has had more chances than most and screwed it up. She is not a good actress and lucky to have had the job offers which are mostly based on her attention getting problems. I believe the judge will not allow her to travel and will give her the jail time she deserves and a longer probation. No producer in their right mind would hire this woman, she has no respect for the law and does what she wants to do, period.

Why on earth was she given her drivers license back while still under a court order?

Ruin her career? What career? As a drug addict? This girl is the most over hyped person on the planet? The attention she gets measured against the work she has done is out of whack. Me no understand the fascination with her. Her life is little more than a dumpster fire.

Mr LA    

The people wanting her in jail need to realize something. It's the taxpayers of Calif who have to pay for that. Our prisons are over flowing and we are completely broke, yet people want to throw Lindsay Lohan in prison? No wonder California is broke.

Katie10, do you live in and drive the streets of LA? Aha! I thought not. We drive those streets with her and we are sick to death of her FU attitude and putting OUR lives in danger. Now do you get it? She puts herself out there telling the paps where she is going to be and when, etc. and that makes her fair game to us. She wanted to be noticed, well, she got it. Just not for the reasons she was looking for and who's fault is that? Nobody but Lindsays.

I thought you were a cute actress in Parent Trap. That was it.Now that you are an adult you should definitely not consider yourself an actress. You have a very serious problem and you should of stayed in rehab. I am disgusted with your mum and dad and how they have milked you. Please own up to your mistakes and stay in rehab.

OMG this is getting ridiculous...she needs to be put in intensive rehab for at least 6 months. Her mother should lose custody of her other children...the fact that she still says LiLo does not have a problem is sick...
