With an early release from jail now looming this week, troubled star Lindsay Lohan is now worried about what comes next: her mandatory 90 days in rehab.
Unlike her 90-day jail sentence, which is likely to be cut short due to good behavior, overcrowding and the media circus she causes, rehab is non-negotiable.
And Lindsay's not happy about it.
"She’s a little upset right now," her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley said after visiting the actress Tuesday. "She'd like to spend some time with her family."
If this were anyone but Lindsay Lohan, that might be reasonable. But not only does she need rehab STAT, her family members are enablers and criminals.
We're talking to you, Michael Lohan.
Is Lindsay trying to weasel out of rehab?
Holley acknowledged "there’s at least some question as to whether or not she’ll have to go directly to rehab," but it doesn't sound like she has a choice.
Prosecutors confirmed Tuesday that Lohan must report to an L.A.-based residential rehab facility 24 hours after her release from jail - likely August 1-2.
The attorney is concerned "there's a push now for her to go directly to rehab from jail," and wants her client to spend some time with her family first.
"I think it would only be fair for her to spend some time with her family and that’s what she would like for me to emphasize to judge," says Holley.
Lindsay Lohan has been jailed (and strip-searched) in Lynwood, Calif., since July 20 for violating probation stemming from her 2007 DUI conviction.
Should she be allowed leeway with rehab? Her time behind bars is already being dramatically reduced. Should she even be let out of jail so soon?
