Lindsay Lohan Checked Into Betty Ford


LINDSAY LOHAN just barely avoided a probation violation by checking into the Betty Ford Clinic in Rancho Mirage, California at around 1:30 A.M. Friday.  (E! Online)



















It's interesting that Betty Ford was willing to take her.  She did a stint there back in 2010, and got into a FIGHT with a female employee who caught her sneaking back into the clinic after sneaking out for a night.  Lindsay's mom DINA says Lindsay didn't check into Morningside on Thursday because it hadn't been approved by the court.   

It's not clear why she checked into Betty Ford, since the court hadn't signed off on that either.  But Betty Ford is a well-known, respected clinic, so she probably figured they'd be cool with it.  And sources say that won't be a problem.  

As for the clinic the court originally agreed to in the New York area, Dina says Lindsay's psycho dad MICHAEL LOHAN was once a client there, and they rejected Lindsay because they didn't want HIM coming to visit her.  Meanwhile, Lindsay dropped that horrible attorney Mark Heller, and is back with Shawn Holley, the lawyer she fired for no good reason back in January.

Lindsay Lohan Says She's Only Tried Cocaine Four or Five Times in Her Life

An interview 
LINDSAY LOHAN did with PIERS MORGAN a few weeks ago was published in a British tabloid this weekend.  Here are the highlights . . .

Lindsay does NOT love cocaine the way you think she does.  She says, "I've only done it maybe four or five times in my life."  She says she hates it because it reminds her of her dad.  She's also never taken heroin or LSD, nor has she ever injected herself with anything.  She copped to some pot-smoking, but she says she's not a pothead.  And apparently, her favorite drug is ECSTASY.

To hear her tell it, Lindsay hardly ever even drinks.  She says, "I've never been a huge drinker.  I've never woken up in the morning and had a drink."  And Lindsay can quit drinking any time she wants.  She says HEATH LEDGER once advised her to quit for an entire year, and she did.

Not surprisingly, Lindsay doesn't think she needs rehab.  She says, "I don't think I need to be on lockdown for three months. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless."  She adds, "I think there are other things I could do instead.  The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."  But she does admit, "I don't think it will be a bad thing for me to be away with myself for three months."

Lindsay does cop to taking Adderall for, "severe ADD".  And she takes a tranquilizer when she can't sleep because of jet lag.

Oh, and Lindsay never stole that necklace, FYI.  She says, "They didn't show the real in-store video tape to anyone, because that shows the store attendant putting it on me and me taking out cash to pay for it, and she's saying, 'No, you can just bring it back tomorrow.'  So, there's like a slew of things that have gone on like that which have been such a strain."

One last note:  Lindsay is STRAIGHT.  And even though she had that lesbian relationship with SAMANTHA RONSON, she doesn't even consider herself bisexual.  She says, "When I was with her I didn't want to leave, because I didn't want to be alone."  She adds, "I have made out with girls before, and I had a relationship with a girl.  But I think I needed to experience that and I think I was looking for something different."
