Lindsay Lohan’s father insists she hasn’t started drinking again.
The Scary Movie 5 actress, who completed 90 days of court-ordered treatment in rehab at the end of July, sparked concern after a picture was taken apparently showing her reaching for a bottle of wine amid rumours she recently fired her sober coach. But Lindsay’s dad, Michael, has branded the speculation ridiculous.
He told gossip website Radaronline.com, “Oh my God. The story is ridiculous. First of all I’ve never known Lindsay to ever, ever, ever have a glass of wine.
“I see and speak to Lindsay constantly and every time I do she’s of clear mind and by no means do I have any suspicion of her relapsing in any way.”
Michael confirmed that his daughter recently parted ways with her sober coach but that she’s hired someone new to help her stay on the wagon.
He said, “She has her life coach, AJ, with her and that’s the same thing as a sober coach. Her sober coach from Cliffside [rehab centre] lives in LA so they aren’t living with her in New York City any more.
“Maybe she goes out at night but who doesn’t? She’s up in the morning and she’s doing the right thing.”
A spokesperson for the 27-year-old also dismissed the rumours and said she “continues to succeed in her recovery.”
The actress is preparing to fly to Los Angeles from New York City for meetings with film producers about several projects in the coming days. Bang! Showbizz Share your thoughts:
