You knew she wouldn’t go quietly, but this is beyond ridiculous.
There seems to be some discrepancy between reports of whether Lindsay Lohan has checked into rehab or not.
TMZ earlier published photos of the troubled star at Fry’s Electronics in Fountain Valley — when she was supposed to have checked in for her mandated rehab stint at the Morningside Recovery Center.
“Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer lied in court when he said his client was already ensconced in a rehab facility,” the website reported. “She was actually roaming the aisles of an electronics store.”
Now the NY Daily News is claiming she has skipped rehab altogether and is headed to the airport to catch a flight back to NYC.
“She went shopping at an electronics store then she was on the (rehab center) property for a couple minutes but got spooked by the paparazzi,” said a source who is aware of Lohan’s movements. “She was saying, ‘I’m not going to rehab. I’m not going to rehab. Take be back to the airport.’
“She’s headed back to LAX airport,” the source told the newspaper. “The hope is that someone talks some sense into her before she gets on another plane.”
Prosecutors, who were expecting Lohan to check into a residential rehab facility on Long Island Thursday said they were completely “blindsided” by the twin events: Lohan showing up at an L.A. clinic — and then apparently bolting.
Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White said he won’t stand for it.
“If there’s credible confirmation she’s heading back to New York, then I’m going to have to go in and ask the court to issue a warrant,” White said.
White was already angered by Lohan’s apparent decision to go to Morningside — a center which may not even be licensed to provide the “residential rehab” Lohan is ordered to undergo.
“I’m very unhappy. This is not what we agreed to,” White told the News after the morning hearing. “If we don’t approve, we’ll come back to court the week of May 13 and have a hearing.”
