Lindsay Lohan

Shopping Date with

Star Of Major Drug Bust

8/21/2013 11:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Wow that sober coach Crapside recommended must be commended for doing such a great job keeping Lindsay on the straight and narrow. She has hung out with The Wanted, and now with Vikram Chatwal. Hmmm...I guess this fun sober coach must not be as strict as advertised. lol.

Once you get entrenched into addiction, recovery has a very low success rate. Ask AA and NA, and if they are being truthful, they will tell you only about 5-10% of their "members" stay permanently sober. But who knows? She may surprise us. I hope so. But more than likely, there will be another squirrelly story coming down the pike any day.

Perhaps someone here can answer a question for me:
.
Exactly where in the schedule of Chatwal's 12 month long in-patient rehab program is the part about him attending Lohan's birthday party at some club in NYC.
.
Have I missed something or are both of these addicts laughing their asses off at the California and Florida legal system.

Judging by the picture I am guessing that Vikram smells like horrible cologne (3X too much), cigarette smoke, stinky Indian food and sweat.

She must think she can fool the masses. That shows how damaged her brain is.

She's broke and has an outrageous spending habit. She is known for leeching on to people with money so they support her lifestyle. He is her sponsor so to speak and I don't mean the sober kind. She will use whoever she needs to to live the lifestyle she wants.

Didn't the last judge tell her not to associate with known drug users? Of course Lindsay does whatever she wants...will the judge do anything? Nope.

is there anyone who actually believes she will ever get her shzt together? i mean besides the people who keep hiring her so they can make money off of her while she is still in the media-this way they can get their picture mentioned over and again when lilo is popped for this and that while currently working 'on the set of her new picture ______" . -dirt bags- the entertainment biz, stay away kiddies-nothing glamorous about having mental issues and s***bag opportunists seeking to exploit them .
