On September 18th, Lindsay Lohan took to her Twitter to tell the world that she was finally doing the right thing and taking responsibility for her actions. She finally admitted that she failed a recent drug test, but was ready for any consequences.
Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!
Now, we’re learning that she wasn’t really (air quotes here) trying to take responsibility for anything. Actually, she was getting tanked with friends when she concocted the Twitter message.
According to a snitch at Magnolia eatery, she was laughing up a storm as she tossed back some Jack Daniels mixed with Coke. (Not that kind of coke, we think.)
Us Magazine reports:
Lohan composed her missive as her assistant and a male pal coached her on how to make it “more personal,” the witness recounts. “Her friend would say, ‘No, use ‘setback,’ don’t say ‘mistake.’ They’ll say you make mistakes all the time!” The friend went on, “It’s better to say you’re responsible. Denying it will just get everyone mad per usual.” Lohan’s response: “She giggled” and had her assistant order her another Jack and Coke, the Magnolia spy tells Us.
Once the final copy was sent off to her management team — Lou Taylor and Larry Rudolph, who famously helped Britney Spears clean up — Lohan wasn’t “emotional,” says the witness.
The actress, who has been to rehab four times, even joked about drinking whiskey that night, telling pals, “What are you gonna do?” I’m ill” — making air quotes with her fingers.
She’s “ILL”. I hope she gets jail time if any of this is “true”.
