Lindsay Lohan

The rehab facility that Lindsay Lohan has called home for weeks sent a letter to the judge in her probation case ... saying LiLo will lapse back into drug and alcohol abuse if she doesn't get more court-ordered therapy ... and guess what, the judge agreed.

TMZ obtained a copy of the letter from Cliffside Malibu, in which CEO and founder Richard Taite tells the judge, Lindsay needs 3, 50-minute sessions a week for the next 15 months (18 months from last May).  Then Taite gives an ominous warning: "If these sessions are not required by the court and attendance verified once a month to ensure accountability, it is a set up for almost certain failure."

The judge agreed in open court this morning, and ordered that Lindsay stay in therapy and prove a year from November that she's complied.

Meanwhile in court, Lindsay's lawyer Shawn Holley showed up with proof Lindsay successfully completed her 90 days of rehab.

Outside court, Shawn talked about "Lindsay 2.0." ... and made a bold prediction about her client's future.

‘The Canyons’ Director: Lindsay Lohan Is Battling The Bottle — But It’s Pills, Not Booze


Paul Schrader, Lindsay Lohan‘s director in her new movie The Canyons, says the enigmatic star’s deepest-seeded substance abuse issues lie in prescription drugs, not alcohol or street drugs.

“I honestly think it’s the Adderall,” Schrader told the L.A. Times’ Movies Now. “It’s the most abused drug for young girls in the country.

“It kills your appetite, allows you to stay up and hyper-concentrate.”

(The drug is no stranger in Hollywood circles, as famous faces including Amanda Bynes, Demi Moore and Brooke Mueller have been linked to using it.)

As for drinking, Schrader says Lindsay’s “not an alcoholic,” and actually has a very low tolerance towards booze.

“She is a cheap drunk … a couple of glasses of wine and she shows the effects.”

Schrader he anticipated that putting LiLo in the project would make for “psychodrama” — and it was!

“Lindsay does live in a world of created drama; she seems to live in a cone of crisis. A lot of it is unnecessary,” he said. “You want to say to Lindsay, ‘Why are we in this emotional upheaval?’

“More than once I said to her, ‘It really must be hard to be you.’”

Schrader earlier told IndieWire he welcomed the controversy of putting the tabloid queen, porn stud James Deen, and mercurial screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis on the same project, then watching the sparks fly.

“To be honest, it’s something we created. We stirred the pot, simply with the casting of Lindsay and James,” Schrader said. “Lindsay brings with her, her drama, and then Bret, he has a very promiscuous Twitter finger, and he can always [be] relied upon to upset somebody with some tweet.”

The Canyons will be in theaters Friday in New York and Los Angeles, and VOD and iTunes next week.

I didn't sleep night before last. Now I have been having difficulties sleeping but that night all I could do was think of that damn video after Hannah told us about it. And I had not even seen it. And I looked for that evil little LUMP everywhere. I did find her here at tmz and got the one comment from her but it was a long bad night. Yesterday, Madi, Nikki, Seamus, and ALL the great peeps on here got busy. It was wonderful to see everyone doing what they could to expose the video and mainly attempt to get rid of the video. You all are just terrific. And for the first time in a month I slept ten hours in a row last night. You guys ROCK!!!

So. What's on the menu for today, Auntie Bin Laden? More acts of expatriatism? Selling intel to the Iraqis again? Maybe something sedate like some mollygacking and niece-nibbling? OK, split the difference - another round of adolescent suicide promotion! Your campaign of #LITTLEWHORES was a colossal failure, like we all knew it would be. I'd guess none of your sheep will be thrilled about their every Tweet being dissected and decoded. I hope you plan to use them as witnesses..... They'll fold faster than you can nibble a niece when faced with Federal charges.
