Lindsay:

Don't Even Think

About a Conservatorship

9/30/2010 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan has made it clear ... she will personally go to court and fight like hell if anyone tries to put her under a conservatorship ... sources with firsthand knowledge tell TMZ.

Lindsay is saying no matter where she is -- and she's at Betty Ford right now -- she will come to court and go after anyone who tries to create a conservatorship.

But there's one proviso.  Lindsay could end up in rehab for a long time.  There could be problems handling Lindsay's business affairs while Lindsay is otherwise engaged, so there's a real possibility a trust will be created -- at least temporarily -- to handle financial matters.

You are right, Susan. Except for the fact that Lindsay will do 5-6 days for every 30 days the judge gives her, and if he only gives her 30, realistically, she might not do any of it all. The detention center might just process her the hell on outta there. But the judge is not a stupid man. If he wants her to actually GO to jail, he'll probably have to give her another 90 days and she'll do another two weeks and that'll be that.

And cocaine and Adderall have similiar properties. When Lindsay was on Adderall, she didn't need cocaine; hence, she probably never used it (while she was on Adderall, that is) What happened here is that she took some Adderall and then probably ran out of it. She knew she wouldn't be able to get any more doctor pescribed medications, so did coke instead. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the first time she had done cocaine several in years, because as long as she had the meds, she just didn't need it.

@dumas 1000 I don't think the Judge can give Lindsay any extra jail time other than 30 days. He said before she would receive 30 days for every violation and she's had one violation. There would be no grounds for extra jail time.

@63 Next you'll say Dina is the best parent in the whole wide world ...let's face it: both of them aren't treating this whole issue very well. When Dina WAS talking she was denying - throughout and fully- her daughter even had a problem.

@67 the point you are missing- and up until recently she was missing as well - is that this isn't about what kind of JAIL time is appropriate anymore . a Good judge will also think ahead : is it wise policy to simply let her spend a few hours in jail ( I maintain jail is a complete waste in this case,period ) and that's the end of it? Chances of her having to return to court fairly rapidly then are very high.

This isn't just about justice but also what is in HER best interest ( also to avoid costing more taxpayer money within weeks of being released ). And that sure isn't jail, but rather continued rehab.

@69 No, I am not missing the point. The question was about jail time, the Judge will not give her 90 days, that was the discussion.

I also believe jail is a waste of tax payers money and will be of no benefit to her. I hope and expect Lindsay to remain/go back to rehab after Oct 22nd. Having said that, I think her father with his currents threats could have an adverse affect on her progress. Already she has been told of his intentions and its worrying, looks like she is going to come out fighting if he carries out his threat. This isn't the best frame of mind to be in whilst in rehab.

No wonder Lindsey is so effed up. With a father that RUNS to the media every chance he gets to comment on his ADULT daughter. How effin emabarressing for her. I feel sorry for her with the parents she has. Her father is one big media wh*re!!!! He makes me sick every time he opens his mouth. And the media should completely ban any & every thing he says. I think having an addiction is completely different than having mental health issues, If every one who was in rehab had a conservatorship our courts would be clogged. The courts should make her fahter STFU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lindsey would be a lot better off if he just dropped over.

@dumas1000 The thing is, what is UCLA's diagnosis? Nobody knows. TMZ has the conjecture of the misdiagnosis that Shawn Chapman Holley said she knew nothing about, and the not an addict and has a personality disorder thing, but what was it really? We aren't sure she's off of adderall or if the adderall was substituted with something else.

Why UCLA in the first place? What about Lindsay's other serious issues. What bugs me is that people are always associating Lindsay with drugs and seem to ignore her other behavior. Some of the other behavior is not consistent with drug abuse or addiction and one of those is cutting. People dismiss Lindsay having a mental condition. I think that's misguided, you don't have to have the severe displays that Britney did to have mental issues of some degree. People with depression and/or personality disorders can seem "normal" to many people.

Maybe what Lindsay needs is a psych support center that includes people who resort to drugs but psych support as the main element opposed to one where people work on substance abuse primarily and then uncover what's behind it. Maybe, that psych-first approach is the one that will ultimately get Lindsay better results. Maybe she needs to go back or continue with UCLA or similar facility.

well, i'm not gonna list it all,but she has shown behavior that is harmful to herself and others(throwing drinks(glass and all )in bars,if true),depends on how provable it has to be.

@71 Janet Just to put you in the picture honey as your sarcastic comment is clearly lacking any knowledge on the matter, Lindsay went into rehab of her own accord. If she wishes, she can leave at any time.

@72 I agree,hence me saying a gag order by the judge wouldn't be bad.
@ 75 You're right it's all speculation but we do know what was in the verdict and one of those things was her dealing with "chemical dependency issues " by visiting classes or a counselor. That sure wouldn't be in such a verdict if everything was peachy with regard to substance abuse.

I agree with you quitting using all kinds of stuff is only the start .In order to recover you HAVE to address the issues which led to your problems in the first place. That's even far more important in the long term than the initial step of going to rehab. If you don't do that you WILL 100% guaranteed relapse .

@ Post 76 susan I am also susan so this could be confusing to some. Lindsay had a row with her g/f at the time and she tossed a glass at her, I would have done th same if Samantha Ronson had treated me like that. Anyway, that was an isolated occasion and all was well.
