Lindsay Lohan

I Admit It ...

I've Lost Control

12/16/2012 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1214_lindsay_lohan_01Lindsay Lohan has hit rock bottom yet again and she knows it ... finally admitting her life has gone off the rails and she desperately needs professional help ... TMZ has learned.

Lindsay's telling friends, she thought she had turned over a new leaf back in March when she completed the terms of her sentence in the jewelry heist case ... and Judge Stephanie Sautner maternally warned, "Stop the nightclubbing and focus on your work."



Lindsay clearly ignored that advice ...  and now we're told she's inconsolable -- repeatedly calling her lawyer Shawn Holley in tears.  In classic Lindsay form, she knows her life is out of control, but she's blaming it on others, saying she has again hooked up with a bad group of people and had run-ins with "opportunists" who have tried to provoke her.

As for drugs and alcohol ... Lindsay is still adamant ... she doesn't have a problem.  As they say, there is none so blind as those who will not see.

Lindsay believes her real problem is that she never stuck with counseling, but thinks regular appointments with a professional could be her salvation.  It's probably not coincidental that counseling is now the only possible way she can avoid jail for the new crimes and probation violation.

Finally ... Lindsay is confessing to friends she has a big problem with impulse control ... in other words, she doesn't think before she acts.   She thinks a shrink can help her in that department.

If she did, maybe there'd be no such thing as "Liz and Dick."

This is the first in a string of stories to build up her defense for the Judge to not sent her to jail....and to sent to to a mental rehab....and Conisidently Shawn Holly will have a list of several "Nice " places that are willing to take and work with her and would recommend them to the Judge...........and the Moneyman in the backroom will have made a generous donation too the facilty for them to see to the "comfort " of Lindsay while she's in there and in say 4 to 6 weeks she will have be released to outpatient because she responded SOOOOOO will to the treatment...Rest and refreshed and ready for another brand new start........
Hey Judge I know of a nice place.....Dorothea Dix...for the criminally insane....outside Raleigh.....and she won't get out of there in 6 weeks.....1 yr minimun......

If Lohan won't admit she has major substance abuse issues and is still blaming her woes on others, it's the same old song and dance. She's not even close to hitting bottom. I don't know, maybe a little outpatient treatments with a shrink is all she needs. What any of this has to do with a car wreck and lying to police, I have no idea. She will never turn her act around. She's too far along gone.

Stop claiming counseling is the only thing that can save her from jail time. She wasn't drunk/high at the time of the June car incident...she can't use needing rehab/counseling as an excuse for those crimes/parole violation.

Lets all predict her next move because we have seen this time and time again. Will she check into rehab next prior to her next courtdate to gain pity and try and get probation again? Do you see a rush to the ER in an ambulance, hospital stay then claims of "exhaustion"?? What do you guys predict is next in the LL playbook?

If Lohan was serious about facing her problems she wouldnt be blaming others. 1 of the first steps of kicking your addiction is taking responsibility and not blaming anyone.

Oh cry me a river Lindsay who probably called in this story for extra spending money. I imagine facing reality is probably more than she can handle right about now and it's only going to get worse.

A little trip down memory lane:
_______________

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Lindsay Lohan, accused of stealing a necklace, spent five hours in custody before posting a $75,000 bond Friday evening after a judge sentenced her to 120 days in jail for violating her drunk driving probation.
Her release from Los Angeles County's Lynwood Correctional Facility capped a long day that included a victory for the actress when a judge reduced the felony grand theft charge to a misdemeanor.
Lohan will remain free on bond while her lawyer appeals the jail sentence for the probation violation, but she must immediately start serving 480 hours of community service, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner said.
The community service, includes 360... hours at a downtown Los Angeles women's center, which Judge Sautner suggested might cause Lohan to behave better after seeing "how truly needy women and women who have fallen on real hard times have to live."

The judge ruled Friday that the necklace theft case against Lohan will go forward to trial, but the felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor.
"I'm going to give her an opportunity," Sautner said.
Sautner did not buy the defense argument that Lohan accidentally walked out of a Venice, California, jewelry store wearing a necklace that later appeared around her neck in photographs taken five days later.
"If in fact it was an accident, she could have called the store back," Sautner said.

Defense attorney Shawn Holley argued that Lohan was busy and scattered when she was at the store and absent-mindedly walked out with the necklace.
"It's undisputed that Ms. Lohan walked out of the store with the necklace on," Holley said. The prosecution must show she had "specific intent to permanently deprive the store of that necklace."
While Holley conceded that Lohan "did not rush to return the necklace," but it just "makes her not a very considerate or courteous person."
"The fact that she may not have been a courteous or considerate person doesn't make her a thief," Holley said.


"I see the intent here and the level of brazenness to say 'Let me see what I can get away with here,' " Sautner said.


A police detective testified that Lohan's assistant handed the necklace to a police officer after learning through a website posting that police had obtained a search warrant hours earlier to search for it in her home.
Prosecutor Danette Meyers argued that "it doesn't take a rocket scientist" to realize Lohan returned the necklace to police because she knew her home was about to be searched.

Before delivering the good news to Lohan about the reduction of the charge, the judge addressed her much-publicized misbehavior.
"She thumbs her nose at the court," Sautner said, referring to an incident with another judge last year. "She walks into court with 'F U' on her fingernails. I don't know what that means unless it has 'I am' before it."

Postscript: Blo was fired from the downtown Los Angeles women's center for non-attendance, she copped a plea to the theft charge, partied all through her house-arrest sentence.....and, in less than a year, is due back in court on both coasts for multiple criminal charges.
And Liz&Dick bombed.

There is no way in hell this is going to work. She will be doing some hard jail time. She has screwed over all the judges and made them look like fools. I bet they have had enough.

This bitch is beyond transparent, it's hilarious at this point listening to her recycle the same ole BS over and over again. I am concerned the judge she has now will buy it too, and if that's the case, then I think ppl will either riot, or someone will knock this trick off. It's BEYOND making a mockery of the justice system now.
