Lindsay almost kicked out of rehab?


Lindsay Lohan was allegedly "making life hell" for staff and other patients at the Betty Ford clinic before she moved to another rehab facility.

The 26-year-old actress ? who began 90 days of court-ordered treatment on 2 May after pleading no contest to charges for lying to police about driving during a car crash ? was reportedly on the verge of being kicked out before being moved to Cliffside in Malibu to complete her treatment on Wednesday, with the approval of prosecutors, a judge and her lawyers.

A source told gossip website, "Lindsay skipped group therapy, she refused to go for several days. She thought people were giving out information on her. That was her excuse.

"She was making life hell for those around her every day. She was disruptive and wilful. Betty Ford is thrilled to see her go."

The clinic, near Palm Springs in California, was allegedly considering asking the Scary Movie V actress to leave because of her behaviour, which included repeatedly asking for attention deficit disorder (ADD) medication Adderall, before a deal was struck to let her finish her rehab elsewhere.

The insider said, "That was Plan B. Lindsay was demanding her Adderall, which she was not given. But she kept demanding it and was highly disruptive."

Lindsay's father, Michael Lohan, previously said he wanted her to move to The Lukens Institute in Florida despite admitting she was responding well to her treatment at Betty Ford.

He recently said, "She is doing phenomenal, I mean awesome.

"There is a lot of healing going on.

"This time more than other times I have a lot more faith in it and in her. I just know God is behind her this time.

"It's just enough is enough and she realises that. In everyone's life there comes that epiphany and I guess it's come upon her in some shape or form. It's time and I think she knows that."

The actress is due to be released from rehab on 31 July and must then complete 30 days of community service, as well as more than a year of psychotherapy.
