Everyone remembers her as the cute redhead from the 1998 version of the classic film, The Parent Trap.
Now all anyone hears about is Lindsay Lohan’s many trips to rehab, mess-ups, and jail time. 24-year-old American actress and singer, Lindsay Lohan has been a hot item in the press since she turned the legal age of 18.
Magazines and photographers everywhere have followed Lohan’s every move, from entering and leaving nightclubs to documenting her very public relationship with singer-songwriter and DJ, Samantha Ronson.
Lindsay Lohan is known for her many trips to rehabilitation centers for drug and alcohol recovery and anorexia but disaster and trouble seemed to have followed Lohan again this summer.
Lohan was scheduled to attend a DUI progress report early May 2010.
However, when Lindsay didn’t show up, the judges did not smile in her favor. Lohan and representatives claimed that Lohan’s passport was stolen while she was attending the Cannes Film Festival.
Rumors spread rapidly about Lohan’s constant partying in Cannes, therefore at her rescheduled progress report hearing, she was required to wear a bracelet that monitored her alcohol level, attend alcohol education classes, and refrain from consuming any alcohol.
On July 6, 2010, Lindsay Lohan’s world spun frantically out of control as her court session did not go as she had hoped.
Lohan was charged with violating her probation. Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail for the violation.
Rumors told of Lindsay tearing through her house, throwing items, and threatening her life.
With all the drama stirring her emotional and mental stability, a judge also ordered her to attend an inpatient clinic for three months after her jail time.
On July 20, Lohan was escorted into custody to attend her jail time, which was shortly outlived.
Fourteen days after being in jail, Lohan was released after the facility she was attending was deemed “overcrowded” and therefore void of any non-violent offenders.
However, Lohan was still required to attend an inpatient facility.
Lohan was sent to UCLA, where she was released 23 days later for having served as much time as she could have. UCLA doctors claimed that Lohan “had done everything required of her there.”
She will still attend outpatient facilities in order to get her life back together.
