Lindsay Lohan

Shopping Date with

Star Of Major Drug Bust

Here's a question: if Lindsay Lohan really did cut all her toxic friends out of her life ... why was she spotted hanging out with a rehabbing hotel magnate who was busted for heroin in April?

Lindsay and pal Vikram Chatwal were photographed out in NYC Tuesday, reportedly shopping together ... you know, buddy stuff.

But here's the thing: Lindsay told friends she had permanently excised all the bad influences in her life in order to focus on sobriety and kick her substance abuse issues once and for all ... so it's a little surprising to see her hanging out with this guy.

FYI, Chatwal was busted in April after cops say he tried to get on a plane with cocaine, weed, heroin and various prescription pills. He struck a plea deal that let him avoid jail if he completed 12 months of in-patient rehab.

According to media reports, Chatwal's been to rehab AT LEAST 4 times since 2009. 

We're not telling Lindsay who to be friends with ... we're just asking the question.

Well, if he's been through rehab too and they are both committed to being sober, they probably gain support in being friends. Look at her - it is clear she is trying, and I commend her for it.

She went shopping with his wallet, and he just tagged along in hopes of getting a little something at the end of the day.

Here we go!!! It's all going to begin to go downhill from here. The strait and narrow path for Lindsay only lasts a few weeks, if that

Is this making onto the docu-series for Winfrey? I'm sure we'll get an amazing explanation about how they've been through so much as friends and now they are supporting each other. (I'm not keeping a straight face while typing this).

Everyone knows Lindsay is a huge liar, so nothing new here. She'll be falling on her face soon enough.
