Lindsay Lohan

Safe And Sound

At Betty Ford ... For Now

EXCLUSIVE

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.

HER FIRST PHOTO OP !!! See pic on Daily News

Lindsay Lohan's rehired lawyer Shawn Holley worked 'all night' to smooth over rehab drama to keep starlet out of jail time

Former Betty Ford Center employee Dawn Holland sued Lohan after the starlet allegedly roughed her up while she tried to administer a Breathalyzer test during LiLo’s 2010 stay. Lohan was mandated to check herself into rehab this week as part of her sentencing for reckless driving.

LiLo had been checked in at the Betty Ford in 2010.


Lindsay Lohan dodged jail yet again.

The “Mean Girls” star checked into California’s Betty Ford Center shortly before midnight Friday, barely making a court deadline after she bolted from another rehab early Thursday, sources confirmed to the Daily News.

The eleventh-hour save came after a prosecutor warned that he planned to seek a warrant if she didn’t land in a rehab bed by midnight.

Betty Ford is where the troubled starlet sought help in September 2010 after violating her double DUI probation with a dirty drug test.

She wore a Brooklyn Nets hat and a smile as she walked into the luxury 20-acre center’s registration area, photos posted by E! Online revealed.

She had to surrender her cell phone but not her cigarettes and didn’t seem fazed by the fact that her last stint led to a $1 million assault lawsuit from a former staffer.

The Betty Ford Center is known as one of the best and most expensive rehab centers in the country, and has a long list of celebrity clietele that has at one time or another checked in.

The ex-staffer, Dawn Holland, accused Lohan of roughing her up to avoid a Breathalyzer test after she the actress allegedly sneaked off campus.

The lawsuit ended in a secret settlement.

Lohan, 26, high-tailed it to Betty Ford after her New York lawyer, Mark Heller, told a judge she’d already enrolled in Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach.

Lohan was actually shopping at an electronics store when Heller claimed she was safely “in the bosom” of Morningside Thursday morning. She did drive to the rehab, but balked and asked to be taken back to the airport, a source told The News.

Then it appeared Lindsay was in hiding from everyone, including Heller. But she actually was doing an end-run, begging her former legal ace, Shawn Holley, to swoop in and save the day, sources confirmed.

Shawn Holley, Lindsay Lohan's former attorney, has been re-hired and apparently brokered her stay at the Betty Ford Center.

Lohan had unceremoniously fired Holley in January in favor of Heller, leaving her with an upaid bill topping $100,000.

Holley worked “all night” to secure the Betty Ford spot and also smooth things over with the prosecutors.

“Shawn is just the most amazing lady,” dad Michael Lohan gushed.

“Ms. Lohan fulfilled her obligation to enroll in a rehab facility on May 2, so this office will not be seeking an arrest warrant from the court today,” Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White told The News Friday.

Heller did not return calls seeking comment.

Michael Lohan said thoughts of his daughter detoxing from alcohol and prescription medications Friday were hard to process.

“I can see her right now, bundled up in a blanket, shaking, feeling like she wants to rip out of her skin,” he told The News. “I literally want to cry thinking of my daughter in that position.”

People don't or won't care if Lohan chokes on her own vomit, OD's whatever as long as she doesn't hurt or kill anyone before she does that.


Lohan never had or has any intention of cleaning up her act. She's only gotten worse over the years.


The ratty hair extensions, bags under her eyes, the bloating, bad plastic surgery. All the best make-up can't hide that. Just look at her court photos. Says it all. That's before the bruises on her legs.

You don't see a photo of Lohan not looking wasted on something. Again all her own doing. No enablers or anyone elses fault.


She looks like total shyt for someone 27.

I take a little pleasure in the thought that the coachella valley area (where the BFC is) is hotter than Hades this time of year. You could not pay me to go there right now. Even at night you can melt your tennies on the hot sidewalks.

The Lohan Wars Rage On! Dina, Michael Blame Each Other For Lindsay’s Botched Rehab Plan

Posted on May 3, 2013 @ 10:00AM | By Amber Goodhand and Alexis Tereszcuk

While Lindsay Lohan is safely ensconced in the bosom of the Betty Ford Center, a war is raging on between her parents, and RadarOnline.com has all the exclusive details about their big battle.

Lindsay, 26, was ordered by the court to enter treatment for 90 days on Thursday, but she fled Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach, Calif. after just minutes, despite her lawyer, Mark Heller, telling the judge that she was checked in there and receiving treatment. While the City Attorney scrambled to find Lindsay and was threatening to issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn’t comply with the court’s orders, just before the stroke of midnight Lindsay brought back her old high-powered attorney, Shawn Holley, to broker her deal at Betty Ford.

Now both of Lindsay’s parents are taking credit for the messy rehab confusion and switch and blaming the other one for the debacle that almost landed Lindsay in jail.

“My ex Michael Lohan had absolutely NOTHING to do with helping my daughter in the end positive result,” Dina Lohan exclusively told RadarOnline.com and slammed the father of her four children.

“He was kept in the dark because he leaks everything to the media and acts as If he is a part of this family which he is not.”

Michael, who has been outspoken in his criticism of both Mark Heller and Dina, denied his ex-wife’s charges.

“Before the rumors start and Dina tries to pin her leak on me, let me say, I knew where Lindsay was going, but would not say to all the media.”

Papa Lohan adamantly insisted to RadarOnline.com and said that he was the mastermind behind Lindsay’s lawyer switch.

“I have written confirmation that Dina tried selling Lindsay’s whereabouts. I also have confirmation that I told Lindsay to fire Heller and hire Shawn. Which she did!”

Dina countered to RadarOnline.com that she believes Michael doesn’t have their troubled-daughter’s best interest at heart.

“He will do anything for press and only speaks about his celebrity child and cares nothing about his other three children.”

Looks like we are in for a continuing Diabolique roller coaster ride. MILO says she is only temporarily at BFC til she goes to Lukens. Translation: they dont want to pay. Lukens it seems will let her stay free. So technically its program is not yet begun. Heaven forbid this thing ever actually stop being dragged out.


Diabolique's machinations are unending. Her plotting just begun. LASC is under the devil's curse...stay tuned
