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."

Her only career is that of a pathetic public spectacle. Next.

But for the grace of God she needs to die. There is nothing about her life that shows any hope. But, that's why I am me and God is God.

I think her drug-seeking behavior and defiant attitude are what is killing her career.

Also, didn't I read that she just ordered about $20,000 worth of clothing online from Betty Ford? If rehab is a financial hardship, shouldn't she cut back on her shopping?

If you read the entire do***ent it's a very realistic assessment of her situation. It's not "odd "to point out the financial difficulties at all. It would be wrong if that were excluded from the do***ent ( I don't know who at TMZ read the do***ent but that's how it works : do***ent simply outlines what is going on , including her financial situation , for the judge to take into account ) .

Only solution is to appoint someone to take care of her financial matters ( anyone BUT her current inner circle ,including mum )and it's up to her lawyer to make it so. Problem is huge as well given the fact she is the sole income provider for the entire family . That's one of the reasons- if not THE reason - she ****ed up in the first place. I'm suspecting she's pretty much broke now. Add to that the fact she has signed a contract to start shooting a movie in November - if she doesn't do that she can be sued for breach of contract - and it all makes perfect sense.

I'm impressed with the explanations by therapists and see what she has done sofar. Therapists clearly point out how dysfunctional the family is and point that out as top priority to deal with for her recovery process.

It's very apparent none of them think jail would have contributed to her recovery or to her sense something needs to change ( she's quite obviously convinced of that,she's just worried about her financial position and her career and so she should be ) or her willingness to do so.

If this is the basis for the judge's decision I can see how he came to the conclusion mandatory rehab serves her better now . Like he said ,very pointedly : "I don't want another train wreck " and that's precisely what he's trying to avoid.

So the lawyer needs to facilitate someone taking care of the financial side of things .

Jeez, maybe the poor spoiled, self-indulgent little bitch should have thought of the effects during all her drunken strung-out binges. All of us must balance the temptation of being 'party happy' vs the needs and requirements of the real world and basic facts of life - work, career, home, family, etc.

This idiot simply doesn't understand.

As for her "career", that's using the term rather loosely, isn't it? Go get a job at McD's, Lohan - enough already.

i am sure there is a way her lawyer will get her out of inpatient rehab and then lindsay can go back to doing coke and other stuff.

Your career is IN THE TOILET becuase you are a drunk and a drug addict and nobody wants to hire you. SUCCESSFUL REHAB is your ONLY CHANCE of getting your life and eventually your career on the right track. Open a few books and read them- assuming you can read. You might learn something.

Ungrateful spoiled little brat STILL doesn't get it.

I just guess she needs more dope.

America forgives. America gets on with life. IF she kicks the D & A and IF she straightens up her life and IF she starts associating with prople who bring out the best in her instead of the worst and IF she dedicates her life to positive messages and altruant service to others, Lindsay can still be one of the greatest stars of any era. In fact, America loves most someone who climbs out of the pit to reach success. America is waiting and ready to love you, Miss Lohan. The choice is yours and the consequences could not be more clear. Good luck.

She should meet Robert Downey, Jr. He may have had it tough, but in the end, he came out way better.

(I love Robert Downey, Jr.)

I think they're going to keep her, she seems to have a "disconnect" from reality.

When is this entitled bitch going to realize that she is what is killing her career. Not rehab or jail. She is the reason her life is going down the tubes.
