Lindsay Lohan -- I Wasn't Fired, I Quit!

11/20/2010 5:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made the choice to leave her latest film project, not the other way around ... sources close to LiLo tell TMZ.

It's been reported today that Lindsay was fired from the planned Linda Lovelace biopic "Inferno." But sources who have spoken to Lindsay within the last hour tell us Lindsay decided to drop out from the film so that she could focus more on her recovery.

We're told Lindsay felt the project no longer felt right -- but that she and the director, Matthew Wilder, remain on good terms and hope to work together in the future.

UPDATE: A rep for Lindsay adds that Lindsay is "concentrating on her recovery" and calls the decision to leave the film "mutual."

She just used it as an excuse to party in May and then to try and get out of rehab.

She didn't even sign the contract so i guess the Judge was right when she said there was no "valid excuse" for her not to be there.

It's all good she will finish probation on February 25th and can get her life back and will be able travel for work and won't be confined to LA

Cannes was totally worth it considering the Judge had already made her mind up and determined that Lindsay violated prboation thus leading to the injustice on July 6th.

@ Nicole,

You just cannot let this go can you? You continually FAIL to realize that each party had to bring before Judge Revel the reasons/evidence as to why it was probable that Lohan had violated her probation. The Judge has to listen to BOTH sides, the DA and the Attorney representing Lohan, before she can rule or make judgment. It was not set in stone, but certainly she was reviewing the case prior, she had to. Regardless, the ruling was appropriate because in the end after Revel was recused, Lohan still used and laughed in the face of the courts and her probation! She still had not admitted she was an addict!

I have to say that after February 25th Judge Fox is going to keep her on probation, to make sure she stays clean and sober until August as it was already determined by Judge Revel. That still stands UNLESS Judge Fox decides to release her off probation and with Lohan's action after Judge Revel sent her to jail, it is highly unlikely that Judge Fox is going to just turn her loose! I Guarantee You That!

I hope it's true. She really does need to be free to continue in rehab/sober living situations/whatever she needs after the Betty Ford leash is cut in January. That movie did sound like a career killer anyway.

If she were SO focused on being clean and sober, She`d keep her pie hole shut and focus on her getting better. Mark my words "she will use again, in a heartbeat" Addicts only focus on themselves and when they can get their next fix. She was ONCE a good actress. She is a spoiled rotten brat, and she will continue to be, even when no one gives a "flying fig newton" about her. And her parents made her be that way. She was their meal ticket. She was her parents PR. How can a parent look the other way when they knew full well that their child was in trouble? Everybody that was close to her used her. Although she never saw it that way, because she was so doped up on alcohol and drugs. It will take many tears and years to de-program Lindsay. I truly wish her the best. But, she needs to step up to plate alone and take care of herself first. If we can`t love ourselves, no one else will. Poor twisted family she had to grow up in. Now Lindsay "TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE" The heck with anybody else right now. If you really want sobriety and peace of mind? No one but you, can give that to you, but YOU!

Nice to see Nicole (Dina) still spewing nonsense. Dina lies sooooo much she actually believes her own lies. Isn't she due for another TV interview to make a quick buck talking about what a great mother she is, and how her daughter is the bestest person in the world? I still get a kick out of the fact people are soooo proud of her for being in rehab! Let's not forget she's still in there because it is court ordered. Any knucklehead can stay clean in rehab. Walking that line when you get out is another story. I wonder how that treatment center she was planning on building is coming along? Now that she's all of 30 some odd days clean, she's ready to help others. Give me a break. She's clean for now, NOT SOBER. I give her til April before another court appearance.

Either way, this doesn't look good or bode well for future projects. I never thought this was a good career choice, even if she is desperate. The taint from being attached to a movie that bombs is much worse than any financial remuneration she would have received.
