Lindsay Lohan

Court Docs Reveal

Rehab Scam

5/6/2013 4:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0506_lindsay_lohan_article4
Lindsay Lohan's freshly fired lawyer tried to convince the judge and prosecutors to allow her to go to a facility that had no right to offer rehab services.

TMZ has obtained court docs that confirm the story we broke last week ... that Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach had NO license to provide substance abuse treatment ... despite attorney Mark Heller's representations to the contrary.

A State official sent a letter to Judge Jim Dabney making it crystal clear ... Morningside had its license revoked in Sept., 2012 for numerous violations, including failing to report the death of a patient, providing unlicensed medical services and improperly handling prescription meds.

In fact, the letter says Morningside has flaunted the revocation, and continues to provide rehab without a license, so a State agency is now taking the facility to court to get them to stop.

As for The Betty Ford Center -- where Lindsay is currently receiving treatment -- a rehab case manager submitted a letter saying Lindsay will get a treatment team consisting of a physician, nurse, psychologist, primary counselor, case manager, spiritual care counselor, family counselor, dietician, fitness trainer and chemical dependency technician.

TMZ does a story 'confirming' what they wrote last week was true? TMZ never even broke that story - the prosecutors were on to that while the hearing was still going on. If anything, it was the TMZ members who really broke the story about their license being revoked.

And who is going to pay for this "team" to perform this final miracle rehab on this waste of a human body? Oh, just put it on her tab. Betty Ford goes to the back of the creditor line me thinks.

I can just see Lindsay standing up in an AA meeting at BF to say "Hello. My name is Lindsay and I am not an alcoholic. I'm just here to avoid jail and while waiting for a transfer to the beach in Antigua."

Anything Lindsay touches turns to sh*t. Poor Morningside is now feeling the wrath of Lindsay. Betty Ford will be next....

I can't imagine LL participating in group therapy. She would be worried about some of the patients selling stories about her once she got out.

Do you think Daddy Lohan is still trying to get her to Florida or Hawaii?

It would have been cool if Lindsay had gotten into Morningside and overdosed, and mornigside kept quiet about it. After a few days of deliberating what to do, morningside gets someone to toss her body on the beach and claimed she ran away or something.

I don't know why people assume Mr. New York Lawyer was the one behind Lindsay's aborted dash to Morningside. He's just the scapegoat to paint scheming Lindsay as an innocent victim. She knows the rehabs in the LA area. Mr. New York had her set to go into Seafield in New York. She's the one who bolted, flying out to LA instead to look for a mellow rehab on the beach. My guess is that he had little if anything to do with it. He might even not have realized she didn't enroll at the place while he was in court, but the judge did okay it temporarily until it could be investigated. If the deal was to give her a rehab (sort of) for free for publicity, the only one benefitting is Lindsay. She just thought she could slide through the rehab sentence at Morningside, then word got out that they were unlicensed, and then she found out there would be a warrant for her arrest if she wasn't in rehab by dawn. That's when she panicked and got somebody to pay Holley to rescue her. She wasn't panicked when wandering around the electronics store earlier in the day so it took a while for it all to sink in. Holley rescued her by convincing BF to take her under the court conditions on very short notice. But all the panic was self-induced. She would have satisfied the court staying at sketchy Morningside until the prosecutor filed the proper info for the judge, then she would have been transferred to something on the approved list.
