Lindsay Lohan:

Rehab Could Kill My Career

10/22/2010 3:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan told her probation officer that continued, inpatient treatment would be a hardship financially, and damaging to her career ... this according to Probation Department docs obtained by TMZ.

It's pretty stunning that Lindsay said this, since inpatient rehab was her only hope of staying out of jail.

The documents, prepared for today's hearing, say, "The defendant says her clothing line is falling apart because she is not available to monitor the product."  She told the probation officer she's scheduled to start working on a movie in November -- we're guessing it's "Inferno" but the director tells us he will wait for her.

Although Lindsay says she thinks rehab has been a positive experience, the person who wrote the report says she "needs to continue to work on her issues in order to save her life."

I know she is a celebrity and that everyone thinks they have a right to stick their nose in her business, but what a huge violation of her privacy it is to post her court papers here and talk about her like she's some character is a pathetic soap opera.

Rehab can kill her career but it can save her life.A career can start up again but a life will never be given back once you are dead.

Im so happy to hear that she is participating in groups geared towards self esteem! That is for sure her issue, no self esteem. What a load of crap.

Hey Lohan,

What a dummy you are.

If you had done your time in 2007, this wouldn't have happened.

Didn't want to go to jail so you went to rehab. Now that you've avoided jail you don't want to do rehab.

Typical junkie response. I know that just as soon as you can get out of rehab you'll relapse yet again and the whole thing starts all over again. Jail, probation, probation violation, lawyers trying to draw things out as long a spossible, so they can bill lots of time.

I'm afraid this will be your life. And your idiot mom can say there is no problem. You two deserve each other.

Goodbye Moron

I don't get what the big deal about her saying this is, i'm sure she's still greatful that she wasn't sentenced to jail and I think she is taking rehab seriously. But keep in mind that celebrities do have bills to pay just like the rest of us and Lindsay isn't doing very well financially, so it's no surprise she's worried about her career, she has to make a living just like the rest of us and she probably really needs the money at this point. Also TMZ got one thing wrong-that Inferno film is supposed to start filming in January, so stop blowing this one comment way out of proportion.

Hey Lindsay, stop blaming the "rain" for your problems. It's YOU that is killing your career! You have had a good run, now it's time to pay the piper. Be thankful you're not going to jail, yet!

Lindsay needs to put FIRST THINGS FIRST. One foot in front of the other. One step at a time.

She needs to work on making herself the best version of Lindsay Lohan she has ever been in her life. The 2011 version of Lindsay needs get out of rehab and be ready to take on the world and shine. Hollywood will probably give her more chances but she's still going to have to EARN them.

One of the biggest ways that Lindsay could prove herself to Hollywood again is to STAY SOBER AND GET HEALTHY. Looking good, feeling good and having that smiling, charming personality she used to have is very important.

Plus she needs to work hard on her acting skills. Everyone has to work hard on their skills in order to stay sharp. ALL THE TIME. Maybe she could try doing some acting in Broadway plays or something. Anything to get her back "in the groove" and "on top of her game" like an NFL player would say.

What exactly was she expecting to happen today? Me thinks the little dope head shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.

I say let her out of rehab, don't send her to jail. I say, let her hit rock bottom. Addicts WILL NOT RECOVER unless they can first acknowledge, not just say it to save your career, but truly acknowledge she is an addict and that she needs help. She went to rehab to avoid jail ONLY.

The problem with Lindsey is not just that she is an addict but she is a grade A narcissus. Narcissus NEVER thinks they are wrong. It is everyone else. This inhabits her ability to truly see that she is a addict. Thus, she is in rehab to avoid jail....and it worked.

I have to give her credit for being an excellent actress. She has fooled everyone including UCLA. She deserves an Oscar. You have to be REALLY good to fool someone who works with addict’s everyday. She fooled them into believing she doesn't have an addiction. That is why she got out early. 2 days later she was shoveling coke up her nose....knowing that she would be tested and it would be found.

She truly believes she is above it all and that she should be able to do whatever she wants.

I wish her good luck but I am afraid that it is useless.

I predict she will be out of rehab and will relapse before Jan 3rd.

I say let her destroy her career and become a nobody. I believe this is the only thing that will truly save her life.

I feel sorry for her; I hope she gets the help she needs.
