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.

C'mon, this is the only attention Lohan gets. If it wasn't for all of this legal bullshyt and getting away with what she has it would be Lohan who?


Not to worry Lohan will blame somebody when she screws up there. It's the paps, it's the staff, everyone was mean to her some bullshyt.

Since Lying Lindsays last stay at Betty Ford, she has became a hard core JUNKIE


Lying Lindsay does not like to be told what to do, nor does she like to follow rules.


Lying Lindsay will fuk up in no time!!!


I say this because, since the last three years that Lying Lindsay was there, all she has been doing is going to clubs and doing drugs EVERY night


Now she has a time frames she must follow.


Betty Ford does have the right to kick her out if she does not follow these guidelines.


GOOD LUCK LYING LINDSAY, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED IT

all about the money    

Good lord how many chances is this girl going to get? First she decides not to go to the rehab agreed on because they wouldn't let her smoke, or as her low life lawyer tried to claim the rehab was leaked to the press and since we all know Lilo is like the biggest Hollywood star in the whole world, her privacy was violated. So her s*** ball lawyer goes to court to claim they changed rehabs to the one yesterday morning so she has met her court responsibility. Too bad the one they picked wasn't licensed anymore and she never bothered to step foot in the place despite being "deeply entrenched in the rehab" with appointments to spend the afternoon with the shrink. Maybe her lawyer needs to be brought back in and charged with lying to the court. Now she hears a warrant is about to get her name on it, Lilo goes to another attorney who was not signed onto this case and finds yet another rehab to enter in the evening (technically she is late proving she is enrolled in a program as per court order). The DA bent over and bowed before Lilo and Holly to let her slide yet again where a normal citizen would have already been booked into county jail without all the drama on the day for not being at the very first rehab as agreed. Hollywood Justice prevails yet again.

OY!
Well, what can you say, except that the California Courts haven't got a leg to stand on.
Judge Dabney told Lindsay when he accepted her plea deal that if she violated the deal, she would be jailed - and she has.
Has he kept his promise - no.
She still has a further 2 years of probation to go, and 18 months psychotherapy.
As I've said before, she's got NPD.
And MY, is she crafty.
She's managed to tantrum her way into getting exactly what she wants.
Not only did she NOT comply with the agreed upon rehab center in NY state - where local laws had she violated her plea would have been FAR more stringent than California, she's managed to RETURN to California, rehire Shawn Holley to scoop her out of a potential arrest warrant and get herself to the Betty Ford, where no doubt she knows how to blag her way in and out when she feels like it.
Also, what is all this cr*ap about her having access to her laptop - and the internet, her phone, her publicist, 270 outfits etc.
She's supposed to be in rehab, for drug and alcohol addiction, because she caused an accident on the motorway driving recklessly and dangerously whilst off her face on booze and gear(sadly unproved) - at 11.00 AM.
It's not a working vacation.
What f*ucking planet is she on?


She doesn't really care at all does she?
She doesn't even see that her behaviour could have killed someone, including her passenger who she tried to get to take the blame for her.

And if the courts won't enforce the sentencing that they've handed down to her, isn't this a dangerous precedent?
Anyone who would otherwise be jailed for the same thing can appeal their sentence and state, truthfully, that Lohan was allowed to skate, so why not them?


The only way to get this complete and utter c*unt to
feel the consequences of her actions is to hit her where it still hurts, her wallet.

Don't click on stories about her on websites like TMZ, radar, anyone.
Kill her career as instant publicity.
Otherwise she'll always win.

I actually hope she does screw up again and this time does something that will land her proper prison for a serious stretch of time.
I hope she bashes an employee at Betty F.
I hope she hospitalises him/her.
And I hope the police charge her with Assault and Battery and the system jails her.
Or that she runs off, drunk, driving one of her friends' cars and hits someone and they end up in intensive care, and the police get her.

I'm really p*issed off that this girl behaves like a right c*unt and never, EVER, gets any consequences.

The way I see it is she played all of these people like Charlie Sheen,, rehab facilities, attorneys, judges, the whole freaking judicial system basically just to party and go to Coachella. Well, she found loopholes anyway. She definitely needs to be rehabilitated and detoxed if it's that important to her.
