Lindsay Lohan

Jail Scares the Crap Out of Me ... So I Chose Rehab

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lindsay_lohan_tmz

It's not a promising sign ... but we've learned Lindsay Lohan did NOT accept the plea deal of 90 days in lockdown rehab because she wants to beat substance abuse -- she chose it because it beats jail.

We broke the story ... prosecutors have offered Lindsay the 90-day lockdown rehab deal for weeks, but she consistently rejected it. Her change of heart came at the last minute -- 30,000 feet in the air as she belatedly flew to L.A. for her trial.

Lindsay is telling friends she actually likes the rehab option, because it will allow her to focus on herself without any distractions.

Here's the problem. Lindsay is still saying -- ADAMANTLY -- she does NOT have a substance abuse problem. People in the rehab world say ... it's virtually impossible for anyone in rehab to get better if they don't admit having a problem.

Lindsay has been down this route before, but the rehab experience has never stuck.

BITCH IS RETARDED. DOESNT THE CONVICTED FELON KNOW SHE HAS TO PAY FOR THE 90 DAY REHAB?? THE COURT DOESNT PAY FOR IT. THOUGH THEY REQUIRE IT AS PART OF THE SENTENCE THE CONVICTED LESLO HAS TO FRONT THE MONEY. USUALLY IN THE TUNE OF LIKE $50-$60...K. STUPID BITCH... 90 DAY HOUSE ARREST IS 10X EASIER. BITCH WONT LAST 10 SEC. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED AT BETTY FORD, LAME ASS DYKE! #TRUTH!!

The H8turds screaming about TMZ constantly covering Lindsay Lohan and bitterly complaining about them hounding her and ruining her career is so freaking funny because without TMZ ...she wouldn't have a freaking career even as gossip fodder left.... because basically all the other sites and even TV shows feed and get their stories from TMZ !!! Its their only source of Lindsay News...
Harvey ever decides to grow some balls and ban her from this site ...Her career as it is would be deader then a door nail......This is her career.....She and her people Lohan Inc is and has been the Only sources TMZ has....

In California they have places likePassages places with massage, accupuncture and tai Chi. In New York we have places too. They will make you clean the toilets every day with a tooth's brush. Old school tough love.

IF jail truly "scares the crap out of her" then that is EXACTLY what she needed to straighten up & get her life back on track so she'll stop f**king up!

Rehab makes NO sense in a case with no drug charges. The offer should never have been made.

So I said before that Cali would try to dump her on New York. Will she be allowed to take adderall in rehab? If so, what kind or rehab is that? I think she needs to be kept away from DUIna until she finishes the rehab. That lady needs to be ostrasized by society.

I'm glad Lindsay has this icky squat little hobbit man with his chistmas cracker law degree for a lawyer. Slimey creepy grifter lawyer for a slimey creepy grifter of a career crim chick. How fitting.

She has to also get 18 months of psychotherapy so maybe that will help her. If she also had a better support system and didn't have a nutcase mother who party's with her instead of admitting her daughter has a problem and actually tried to help her that would be good too.
