Lindsay Lohan

Safe And Sound

At Betty Ford ... For Now

5/3/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0503_lilo_betty_ford_getty_2
Lindsay Lohan is safely ensconced at the Betty Ford Center rehab facility in Rancho Mirage, CA ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Lindsay checked in late Thursday night ... barely dodging a looming arrest warrant.

We broke the story ... Lindsay has re-hired Shawn Holley, who then negotiated with Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White to make the deal that Betty Ford was an acceptable rehab joint.

It's ironic Lindsay is at Betty Ford -- you'll recall back in 2010 Lindsay got into an epic fight during her rehab stay with a staffer.  The police were called and civil lawsuits were filed.  It's amazing Betty Ford took her back.

We're told prosecutors will back off their promise to seek an arrest warrant today ... although they still have to get the judge to sign off on Betty Ford, but it looks like that will just be a formality.

Can Lindsay make it for 90 days?  Let's be serious.

Pshhhh whatever!! I cannot believe that guy that claims that hes an attorney has not been arrested yet for lying to the judge about her whereabouts as he was speaking in court. He said that she was at the first rehab place and even gave details as to her schedule to meet with a psyc the same day. What a liar!!!! Not that I have just became aware of this fact but wow I guess fame no matter who you are will still get you perks so long as you have $. If I was the judge I would have had her tracked down and arrested on the spot to do her 90 days.

TMZ Harvey is right. LL is diabolical. I firmly believe she engineered this from the start. She wanted Drama and she wanted HOLLEY back, knowing that Holley was not only putting up with her BS but hooked on helping her. LL threw some tantrums to get her dad involved (possibly to get him to get Holley paid a bit), then pleasantly shopped for an Ipad, etc, then did her drama at Morningside, and went AWOL for more drama so SCH could see how much poor LL needed her help and guidance. SCH is a schlump. She may be level headed and good at lawyering, but she is a fool and a sucker. LL has her wrapped around her little finger, like she has her dad, too. This person, as we are seeing (LL) is a narcissistic manipulative bitch. Flat out. And she has made a mockery of justice and the courts in California. She hurts and takes down everyone she has contact with.

Betty Ford should have said no way to the bitch.

Oh, forgot to add. LL is a pathological psychotic person. There is no hope for her. She likes and thrives off of Drama and manipulating others. She doesn't want rehab. She wants to have opportunities for DRAMA.

It's early yet. When Lohan screws up it will be the BF staff she blames for it. They were mean to me. The staff is dead to me.


Lohans reputation is flushed down the toilet. Won't change the fact she's a no talent, drunk, druggie and thief.


Lohan never had or has any intention of cleaning up her act. She just wants to party and everything is on her terms. Doesn't mean squat she claims she means it this time. Everyone knows she doesn't. Lohan is a waste of space.

She should just get a permanent room there so she can just leave her stuff for when she comes back next time. Rehab is a joke she'll do it, get out and go back to clubbing. She's just doing it to stay out of jail. If this woman lives to see 30 I'll be very surprised.

So, all any of us would have to do, is star in a nine year old flick, slap a nasty red weave on, and we could get away with this?

Shaun Holley is a smart woman. The only thing that makes any sense is this is almost like the intervention that didn't happen months ago. You have to speculate that creepy daddy might have had a role in this too. For whatever reason this attorney really wants Lindsay to get help. I picture Shaun telling Lindsay, you will be at Betty Fords by midnight, you will stay 90 days, and you will NOT cause scenes while there. If you go against any one of these things, I'm done with you. I'm interested in Heller's reaction. Yet again Lindsay is rescued but I believe if and WHEN she blows this which I'm confident she will, her bridges will be burned and that karma we are waiting to see come to fruitition, will finally happen. Lindsay this is it. LAST chance you crazy hoe. Any bets going on how long she will make it?

LL will have day passes and she will escape and have altercations with the staff and all. Prediction. LA will not be able to do anything about this, because Betty Ford will not report any issues to the courts in LA, and will put their staff on orders to not call police for her for anything. If she is caught outside of Betty Ford, she will be taken back to Betty Ford and it will be hushed up. If for some reason the police are involved, they will not do anything because they are Riverside County and don't want to get involved in this, and the LA courts will have their hands tied unless Riverside does get involved. Catch 22 situation. LA should never sign off on Betty Ford in this situation. I believe LL knew a month ago what she would do to get Holley back, and what place she wanted so she could continue her S h i t.

1. I'm surprised that Shawn took her back.

2. I'm surprised Betty Ford took her back

3. I'm surprised that posters on here are still talking about how this rehab won't serve its purpose. Its purpose was to keep her out of jail--so mission accomplished.

4. I'm disappointed but not surprised that Terry White is ceding to Shawn's requests. As I mentioned yesterday, White can trust her word as opposed to Heller.

@Fluffy...Yeah such a blessing she pulls this crap. Stall and avoid. Too funny.


Lohan always knows what she's pulling when pulling it. She knows how to play the game the legal loopholes. Lohans had years of practice at it.


Sad that people who are at BF that are actually trying to turn around have to deal with Lohans crap that is only there to avoid jail and for no other reason.

Someone who is interested in this (Dr Cracker, perhaps) should actually write a book on this type of psychotic personality. Probably would make a good textbook. Of course you don't have to say it's LL.
