Lindsay Lohan’s Latest Low
By all accounts the actress seems to be headed into another downward spiral. Here’s the latest on her antics and a look back at some child stars who came before her.
Remember when Lindsay Lohan was a bright-eyed, talented young actor who, based on a stellar performance in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap, was seemingly on a path to greatness? Cut to 2007 when Lindsay entered Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Sundance, Utah for her third stint at rehab. In a statement, Lindsay said, “It is clear to me that my life has become completely unmanageable because I am addicted to alcohol and drugs.”
Three years later Lindsay has apparently managed to maintain a reasonable level of sobriety – at least until lately. According to friends, this was mainly due to her steady relationship with ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson. Unfortunately, a string of recent events make it clear the 23-year-old might be spiraling down a dangerous slope once again.
After failing to appear at a deposition twice for her wild car chase on Pacific Coast Highway in 2007, a new court date has been set for May 4. The judge has made it clear if she fails to show this time he will throw the book at her. LiLo behind bars? It could happen. (Stranger things have – just ask Paris Hilton.)
LiLo and a pal party it up at Coachella
To make matters worse, daddy dearest Michael Lohan, accompanied by the L.A County Sheriff’s department, paid an unexpected visit to Lindsay’s apartment on Thursday to check on the welfare of Lindsay’s 16-year-old sister who was staying with her. Michael was reportedly concerned after Lindsay drove back from Coachella doing 100mph with Ali Lohan in the car. Authorities spoke with Ali and left, allowing her to stay with her big sis. Sources told TMZ that Lindsay’s mom, Dina, is looking to get a restraining order against her “dangerous” ex-husband. However, with the Sheriff’s Department behind him this may prove difficult.
