If you follow the trail of news stories long enough, it’s not long before you reach a predictable destination. That’s what is happening for Lindsay Lohan. After making a scene in her hotel lobby and crashing her Benz last weekend, it wasn’t a surprise to see her hitting rock bottom.
In Lindsay’s case, Memorial Day weekend may be memorable for all the wrong reasons. It marks the second time she’s going to rehab. "She finally realizes it's the right thing to do," said a friend of Lohan’s. "She is going willingly."
This comes after her DUI/Cocaine posession late last week, and some new photographs taken within 48 hours of the crash. The photographs are of her passed out in the front seat of a car, while her friend (Samantha Ronson) stopped at a gas station. The pair had just left a Memorial Day pool party at Teddy's at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood when a paparazzo caught up to them at a gas station around 4 a.m..
The pictures range from Lohan passed out with her “30 Days” sobriety medallion around her neck, to her kneeling on the sidewalk throwing up. This does not paint a pretty picture for the actress/singer. Her rep isn’t talking, either. It seems that this time it’s gone too far. The actress' friends are hoping the tumultuous weekend will serve as a wakeup call.
"It's a tough time for her right now," said a close friend, who asked not to be identified. "Everyone is hoping that this is a learning lesson to all."
It is now being reported that Lindsay has checked into Promises Rehab Center in Malibu – the same place that housed Britney Spears during her little head-shaving meltdown.
