Lindsay Lohan
got a surprise visit while she was ensconced in rehab -- we found out Ben Affleck had a secret meeting with her as a show of support.

Affleck -- who himself was in rehab back in 2001 -- met Lindsay somewhere away from the Cliffside rehab facility in Malibu where Lindsay was getting treatment.  We're told Ben gave her guidance on how to maintain sobriety after rehab for someone in Hollywood.

We're told Ben talked to Lindsay about how to make a comeback in Hollywood -- a subject on which he's an expert.  Ben talked to Lindsay about her career -- on how talented she is and how she has the ability to turn things around.

Ben also told her how supportive the entertainment community is for people who make a real effort to get better and stay clean.  Our sources say the meeting really touched her.

The meeting was not about Lindsay appearing in Ben's new movie, "Live By Night."  Lindsay will not be in the flick.

So I don't get it - did he talk to Lohan on her own without anyone present? Or did he talk to a whole group of addicts? This is not clear.


If he was all "flirty" with Lohan (as was reported on ROL) then he is a massive douchebag and I won't be going to his films anytime in the future. A while back when he was supposedly sober - he was knocking back vodkas and flirting with Blake Lively behind his gorgeous wife's back. If he was flirting with Lohan as well behind Ms. Garner's back - that puts him in the supreme douchebag category.


He is dead to me now. Won't be seeing any of his films with or without Lohan in them ever again - and I don't give a crap about how many Oscars he's won. He's an arrogant douchebag.

Time for Jennifer to put a hobble on that bull of hers cause there's a cow in heat shaking her ass in is direction and believe me is any flirting was done it was by Lindsay in a room with 20 or more patients like her and it was she not he who singled him out for a one on one question after the speech......cause you finish your speech and open the floor for questions as you visit with the group ....>LOL I bet she made a beeline to him and cozened up real close to ask him a question and just like Woody Allen it bloomed into a tait -dee-tait just between the two of them.....LOL....Just like Woody Allen you made the monotonous mistake of talking to her last year at a party ....He instantly began a life long friend of the family and had her stalking his ass for over the next few months trying to get him to hire her for anything.....
Ben Affleck now finds himself in the same position....and Jennifer will have tabloid stories of their secret affair slapping her in the face in no time...cause Lohan Inc doesn't care how many people lifes they destroy just to keep her name in the news.....
So watch your back Jennifer or you will find a big old knife with Lindsay name on it sticking in it....

Hey Madisyn, if you're out there, we need to talk. Two words: flip flopper. If you go to rol, I think you'll know who I am talking about.

So I went to the E article about Ho-Lilo's selfie pic, and a couple of comments mentioned that they witnessed her partying in her hotel room, and when the other commenter delivered room service, he claimed she told him the bottle of vodka was for her brother. Now am I the only one wondering why they aren't tipping off the media about this?
