Has Lindsay Lohan already relapsed? Are we surprised it took this long? Sources say she’s been a good girl since she left rehab, but there’s rumors going around right now (and some pictures on TMZ) that say otherwise.
Apparently Lindsay is back to partying in NYC, where she’s living now. She’s been hitting up Sing Sing Karaoke bar with girlfriends this week. She was in the bar until almost 6am, according to NYDN. Does that mean she’s drinking? If she’s NOT drinking – then that’s tiptoeing the line pretty close, don’t ya think?
Hanging with a male model type with a blond bob and a handful of gal pals, including one named Rush, the group (not LiLo herself) ordered a bottle of Jameson that they quickly polished off. Lohan was overheard saying she hadn’t had a drink.
“Lindsay was chain-smoking,” our tipster says. “She walked in sober and she left looking tired.”
The night took a turn for the worse when a customer overheard LiLo get into a “disturbance” with a staffer, as she begged to keep the bar open past closing and was acting “insanely belligerent.”
When asked to leave, Lohan called the cops, claiming staffers had locked her in the private karaoke room. The NYPD showed up, but no one bothered to file a report.
When Lohan and the group finally left, staffers found their private karaoke room littered with trash and empty bottles.
Lohan, scared that news of her late-night antics would leak, had two pals return the next day to smooth things over with Sing Sing staff. One employee confirmed that Lohan, now living in SoHo, has become a regular at the joint. Noticeably absent was LiLo’s sobriety coach, Doug Caine. Caine may have moved on from the “Liz and Dick” star because his $1,800-a-day treatment usually goes for 28-day or 60-day cycles.
An acknowledged alcoholic, Lohan has a lot to lose if she falls off the wagon. Her reality show with Oprah’s OWN network has been following her post-rehab recovery. She was paid a whopping $2 million to document her sobriety and O has publicly encouraged her to stay clean and seek help.
“She’s absolutely fine,” Lohan’s father, Michael, tells Confidenti@l. “She’s always great, she’s up early every day and I’m happy that she’s sober.”
Lohan adds a message for LiLo’s friends who were drinking around her: “If they care about her, they won’t drink in front of her.”
Following her big night, Lohan was in Los Angeles for a week of project meetings. She returned to New York Tuesday to hang out with her family.
Thing is, if Lindsay’s trying to be good, then this is awfully dangerous behavior. This isn’t how sober people should behave. I worry she’s going to get right back into the thick of it, and before we know it she’s making headlines again. Be careful LiLo!
