Lindsay Lohan has never been better, according to her mother Dina Lohan.
The 26-year-old actress left the Betty Ford clinic in Rancho Mirage, California, on Wednesday to complete her 90-days of court-ordered treatment at Cliffside Malibu, with the approval of her lawyers, prosecutors and a judge, and her mother believes she will continue to flourish now she is in a more suitable rehab program.
In a message to a fan on Twitter on Friday night, Dina explained why the Scary Movie V star decided to swap facilities, writing, "Betty Ford was amazing and it is a 30 day program .....linds is now moving forward to a place she can continue flourish (Sic)" When asked by another fan whether the actress is doing okay at the moment, her mother replied, "She has never been better thank you."
Other sources close to the Liz & Dick actress recently said she told anyone who would listen that she was miserable at Betty Ford. "It's detrimental to my safety and sobriety here," she reportedly.
Dina and Michael Lohan have called a truce. The divorced parents of Lindsay Lohan - who have been locked in a bitter war over how to deal with their troubled daughter - had dinner together at the W Hotel in Hollywood on Wednesday, where they agreed to attend family therapy sessions at Lindsay's rehab, the Betty Ford Clinic.
"Dina and Michael were talking nicely to each other and not fighting. There was no booze at the table. Lindsay's parents finally were in the same room without the cops being called and that's a good thing. Both of Lindsay's parents have agreed to put aside all their old bad feelings and to be there together to make sure Lindsay is on the right track," a source said.
Lindsay Lohan's father wants her to be transferred to a rehab facility in Florida.
Michael Lohan thinks the 26-year-old Scary Movie V actress - who is more than three weeks into her 90-days of court-ordered treatment - is wasting her time at the Betty Ford clinic in Rancho Mirage, California, because she has already completed the same 12-step program twice before and it failed.
He told gossip website TMZ.com after touching down at Los Angeles International Airport from New York on Saturday, "I want to take care of some things with the court and get her transferred. She's at Betty Ford, I think it's only going to be temporary with regard to recovery, but if she goes to the Lukens Institute, where I want her to go, it's going to be permanent and I'll stake everything on it. I know she'll get better if she goes there."
Lindsay Lohan has become a model patient in rehab.
The 26-year-old actress - who is in the midst of a 90-day court-ordered stint in rehab after pleading "no contest" to lying to police about driving during a car crash last June - has wowed staff at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, with her new positive attitude and has been attending all of her group and one-on-one counseling sessions.
A source told gossip website TMZ.com that the Liz & Dick star, who is in rehab for the sixth time, is taking her treatment seriously and has told friends that she is learning a lot about self-control and how to deal with reckless impulses. Lindsay, who is sharing a room with two roommates, has also admitted that although the program is getting more complicated and emotional, she is not shying away. She told friends that she is happy to have roommates because she doesn't want to be alone and is getting on well with both of them.
Baz Luhrmann is praying for Lindsay Lohan.
The Great Gatsby director thinks the 26-year-old actress, who is currently in the midst of a 90 day court-ordered stint in rehab after pleading no contest to lying to police about driving during a car crash in California last June, is hugely talented and he hopes she can get her life and career back on track.
"I have known Lindsay since she was very young. She's a talented girl. I pray that she can bring herself back to the place where she came from because she is a talented actress. I feel for her, I really do," the 50-year-old Australian moviemaker said.
The Moulin Rouge director also voiced his support for another tabloid favorite, Kim Kardashian, who he thinks looks "elegant" pregnant: "I met her the other night, about two weeks ago. I had dinner with her and Kanye at a friend's place. She's an extraordinarily elegant woman, pregnant. I was really struck by her grace."
Lindsay Lohan is avoiding Brooke Mueller in rehab.
While the 26-year-old actress and Charlie Sheen's former wife are both currently being treated at the Betty Ford Clinic, Lindsay is shunning Brooke, 35, because she thinks she is a "drug addict."
"It's creeping Lindsay out that Brooke seeks her out nightly at the meetings in an attempt to strike up a friendship. Brooke is extremely eager to become besties with Lindsay while in rehab, and has told Lindsay how much they have in common. Brooke's publicist was Lohan's one-time rep, Steve Honig and Brooke has even played the Charlie Sheen card, pointing out that Charlie helped Lindsay pay off debts to the IRS, so they both have a close relationship to him. But Lindsay has said that Brooke is a drug addict, and wants nothing to do with her. Lindsay has told her treatment team to keep Brooke out of her group sessions," a source said.
Lindsay Lohan will be jailed if she leaves the Betty Ford Center early.
The 26-year-old actress - who began 90 days of court-ordered treatment nine days ago after pleading "no contest" to lying to police about being behind the wheel during a car crash last June - is reportedly "freaking out" and threatening to quit the rehab facility in Rancho Mirage, California because doctors have cut off her supply of Adderall but has been warned she will be hauled before Judge James Dabney and sent to jail if she quits.
"The judge overseeing Lindsay's case has made it crystal clear that if she defies the agreement, it's jail time. Judge Dabney signed off on Betty Ford and he expects her to remain there for 90 days. If she does, that will be a violation of her probation and the judge will send her to jail," a source said.
Betty Ford's doctors rarely prescribe adults Adderall because they believe there are plenty of alternative treatments and also think that many people misuse the drug to control their weight.
Lindsay Lohan claims her latest trip to rehab is "pointless."
The 26-year-old actress - who began a 90-day court-ordered treatment program at the Betty Ford Center in California on Thursday to avoid jail after pleading ''no contest'' to charges for lying to police about driving during a car crash last June - claims she doesn't have a problem with alcohol or drugs.
"I've never been a huge drinker. I've never woken up in the morning and had a drink. I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. I don't think that's rehab. I've been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time."
The actress - who also claims she has only done cocaine "four or five times" in her life but admits to preferring ecstasy and pot - hopes that her stint in rehab will help her to change people's opinion of her.
Lindsay Lohan will not be allowed Adderall during her time in rehab.
The 26-year-old actress has reportedly said she will only enter a court ordered treatment facility if she is allowed to have the prescription drug - used to treat Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder - but a source at Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, New York, where she has chosen to check in to, insists they don't allow it.
"We are suspicious of Adderall because of its many abuses - lots of people say they take it for ADHD, when they're really using it for weight loss and getting high," an insider said.
While the facility tries to get patients off Adderall and uses other drugs to treat ADHD instead, Lindsay has told friends she has tried other medications but none have worked.
Lindsay Lohan is going to rehab for 90 days.
The 26-year-old actress - who arrived to court in Del Aire, in Los Angeles County 48 minutes late today - plead "no contest" after striking a last minute deal with prosecutors in relation to charges for lying to police about driving her Porsche when she hit a cement truck on the Pacific Coast Highway last June while still on probation for stealing a necklace.
The Liz & Dick star was also sentenced to 30 days of community service and 18 months of psychotherapy, two months of which she has already completed. The troubled starlet will be allowed to complete her community service in New York after her stint in rehab and her lawyer Mark Heller will appear in court on May 2 to give a progress report.
The judge advised the actress - who was showered with glitter by a fan before entering the court - "don't drive" and warned her that this was her last chance to escape jail. He said if she violates her probation again, "we are going to be done with it,"before adding, "This is it."
