Lindsay Lohan

Judge Orders Therapy

To Avoid 'Certain Failure'

7/31/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

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.

Certain Failure should be the title of Lindsay's biography. The front cover will be a mirror, so you can reflect on your own life or do lines, or both.

Man make up yer mind TMZ . . what do you guys do, keep posting different angles until you land on the truth? DO your research, find out THE facts, THEN post! As far as Lohan . . I know little about her, nor care about her as an actress, but as an addict with 22 years sober, I wish her the best. Though I doubt she is willing to make the necessary changes and get rid of old patterns / ego / behaviors / running buddies and find quiet humility by working the Steps . . but who knows?

This woman, pushing 30, Lindsay Dee Lohan is a manipulative, liar and anyone who is buying what she is saying is a sap. How many times will you let her pull the wool over your eyes? Lindsay must have the the brain the size of a pea. She honestly thinks the public is clamoring for her. The Canyons got horrible reviews and did she not see on Letterman the audiences reaction to her? They could have cared less about her, and probably were p.o'd when they found out they had to sit and listen to her. The good thing is Dave decided to blindside her with questions that were not told to her before hand. And she didn't like it. That is the only hard core interview we've seen. I guarantee you this Oprah interview will be a fluff piece with Dina involved and Lindsay insisting she look good, and like Zepher said, she will answer the same questions she always does when she exits a rehab. I bet she doesn't even know her sobriety date but I know it ended July 31st, 2013. She's a manipulative, lying, thief. Like I said, if anyone chooses to think she has her act together, you're a sap. She said she's not cutting out nightclubs and has Gavin with her, a know drug carrier for her. She is really on her way to a sober lifestyle. She won't make it past 27. I used to not think that but I think this is going to be a bad year again. Comeback number 2 (what comeback) will crash and burn too. She is NO RDJ. Also, did that troll idiot Red Cloud say she will eventually be starring along like Brad Pitt? She'll be hanging around James Deen and on porn sets more than A listers, that is if she is STD free, which I think she is not.

Everyone has such a passion to hate this girl- to the point she gets most comments on this site- why? Interesting, when we live in a society that's full of people who seem to be unable to calm down. We have people of fame shaving heads, young boys shooting schools, abuse of drugs and alchol, suicides, overdoses, Countless DUIs, domestic violence, tax evasion, daily scandals, obnoxious naked "selfies" you no its bad when we live in a world who has coined the term "selfies" ,insider trading, making porn tapes to make a couple extra bucks when career is going south, is anyone calm and happy anymore?! Lindsey can only do the best she can under such scrutiny and upset by public. Really, this is her issues, if they are mental health than it's legit- if not everyone is wasting precious time and effort in thier private lives to blast others for just trying to survive a world full of chaos.
