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.

As they say in AA - "If you sit on the rail road tracks long enough, eventually you will get hit by the train."
This is not Lindsay's first time in recovery, she is well aware that hanging out with someone that has only a few months clean is dangerous.
Only time will tell.

You know, this is just more of Lilo's constant thumbing at the law. She has zero respect for boundaries, rules and laws! She is not allowed to be around other druggies, but there she is with one of the most well known druggies. She reeks of pure stupidity, rebellion and total self destruction. Duh, drool, duhhhhh!!!!!

You know come to think of it, it's these celebrities you know they act like they are so perfect just because they could get away with anything and plus when people see them they start running up to them, wanting to be their friend and hang out with you and all and then when it comes to just regular people. People look at them all crazy giving them the cold mean angry stare, I just don't get it what is up eith this world.
