Lindsay Lohan

Safe And Sound

At Betty Ford ... For Now

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.

She has gone to Betty Ford before and it didn't work the first time around what makes her or the court think it will work a 2nd time.

You know the really sad thing is that the rehab may keep her from doing anything for 3 months but when she gets out that is when the true addiction will rear it's dirty head once again. This time it will be worse. Lindsay will start out with a little because it doesn't take much to get high at first. She likes it, does a little more. This time it takes a little more to get that high and so it goes. Each time taking more and adding something else to the mix, chasing that elusive high. Not even realizing that those around you are looking at you like your a lost cause and a joke. But still the high calls.............till one day she adds that certain combo together and takes a little too much. Then we will sit here numb, feeling bad it happend but knowing that it would. Then TMZ will rake what was Lindsay's life over coals the next day or two and move on looking for it's next victim.

What a joke. Of course she can last 90 days. The last time she was there she and some friends jumped the fence and went out partying. But the joke is going to be on her because she will be cured of nothing at this clinic and her life will continue down the toilet.

So is she there yet or not? I've read a few different stories saying that she's supposed to be arriving soon and TMZ says she's there?

PREDICTION: AND THIS IS NOT A JOKE.


Lindsay Lohan will be arrested for battery and assault. Before she leaves the Betty Ford Center, Lindsay will be in an altercation with one of the staff of patients etc. and she will be prosecuted for it.


2nd PREDICTION: She WILL repeat her past, as she always does, and sneak out of BFC to the hotel near by for ****tails as she did, several times, throughout her entire stay at BFC last time around

Once again the "officials" cave to Lindsays demands of how and where she will receive her punishment. EVERYONE take notice....go ahead and commit any crime of your choosing...Just use the Lindsay Lohan defense! What a mockery of our judicial system. That skank has made aholes out of the whole system

Lindsay Lohan Checks Into Betty Ford At The VERY LAST MINUTE; Avoids Arrest

Posted on May 3, 2013 @ 6:58AM | By Jen Heger

Lindsay Lohan is back in rehab Friday. The troubled actress arrived at the Betty Ford Clinic shortly before the court-mandated midnight deadline — and therefore avoided being arrested — after her long-suffering attorney Shawn Holley convinced prosecutors to let her return to the enroll in a rehab facility in Southern California, and not Morningside Recovery, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Lindsay went back to rehab last night, and arrived before midnight. Lindsay ISN’T back at Morningside. Her former attorney, Shawn Holley, was officially brought back on the case yesterday after Lindsay was calling her all day Thursday. Shawn was able to convince prosecutors that Lindsay was taking rehab seriously, but her former attorney, Mark Heller, bungled everything,” a source close to Lohan told RadarOnline.com exclusively.

In a day of high drama, Lohan bolted from Morningside on Thursday morning, telling the facility’s staff that she didn’t need rehab as Heller, at the same time, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Dabney that Lohan was settling in at the venue.

“My client is ensconced in the bosom of that facility right now,” Heller told the judge. “She’s in rehab right now. Nothing bad is going to happen.”

It appears unlikely that prosecutors would seek an arrest warrant for Lohan since she made it in to rehab before the midnight deadline.

“Right now, Lindsay is focused on getting better. She wanted the drama to end, and that is why she fired Mark Heller. She was literally telling Shawn she would sell a body party if she would take her on as a client again. Shawn agreed, and Lindsay appreciates everything she has done for her. When Shawn says jump, Lindsay will automatically do so,” the source revealed.

Calls seeking comment to Holley weren’t immediately returned.
