Lindsay Lohan‘s plans to attend the 2013 Coachella music festival has her alleged best friend very upset. Claus Hjelmbak says, in no uncertain terms:
“I fear for Lindsay's life if she goes to the festival.”
Hjelmbak, a Danish celebrity promoter, has been friends with Lohan for years, and has decided to go public with his fears "in order to get her attention."
We're sure that's all that prompted it, Claus.
“Lindsay is in a very dark place right now, and I’m absolutely scared for her life. Coachella is the last place she needs to be," says this Lohan insider.
"For someone struggling with addiction, like Lindsay, the amount of drugs and alcohol at Coachella is just a recipe for disaster waiting to happen."
"I know because I have been to the VIP tent at Coachella. Lindsay can turn it around, but she has to look deep inside herself and get the help she needs."
Somehow, attorney Mark Heller and prosecutors agreed to a plea deal in which the wayward, maligned actress did not have to enter rehab until May.
This would allow her to attend Coachella ... so important.
Lindsay Lohan "was adamant that she not be forced to go to rehab until after Coachella," says another insider. "She LOVES going to the musical festival."
"She’s determined to go this year. She didn’t want a little thing like rehab to get in her way. Linds refused to sign off on any deal that would have prevented it."
"It’s that important to her, for some strange reason."
Lohan has attended the Coachella music festival from 2010-2012, and Claus has choice words for Lohan if she attends with her posse this time.
“The people associated with Lindsay right now are a very bad influence on her. They are only using her because they love to be around a celebrity," he says.
"Lindsay needs to cut off ties with these losers because they are bringing her down. I wish Lindsay would go to rehab right now, not at the last possible moment."
Don't we all, Claus-Man. Don't we all.
