FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
‘I DID IN FACT FAIL’
It’s like deja vu all over again. Just over a month after spending 13 days in a Lynwood, Calif., jail, Lindsay Lohan may have earned herself a return ticket behind bars. In addition to admitting on Sept. 17 that she failed a recent court-ordered drug test (reportedly for cocaine), she also allegedly tested positive for amphetamines at a second screening. “This was certainly a setback for me,” Lohan tweeted. It’s a “setback” that could earn her a 30-day sentence. After her early release from UCLA rehab on Aug. 24 (her doctor decided outpatient treatment better suited her), the actress had mostly stayed out of trouble, although pals worried Lohan hadn’t learned her lesson. “She has a bad group of friends in New York,” a source said of her East Coast partying. “They are bad influences, and that’s why she gets into trouble.” Even on the West Coast, eyewitnesses say her choices aren’t ideal-the night of her confession, Lohan was spotted sipping alcoholic drinks at a Hollywood restaurant. Said an onlooker: “It was like she was thinking, ‘I just got caught [doing drugs],’ so I might as well have a drink.” The new judge in her case, Elden Fox, has issued a bench warrant ordering Lohan to appear in court Sept. 24; he may sentence her to more rehab in lieu of jail. The producers of her upcoming film Inferno are standing by her, saying they’re confident she can overcome her addictions. “I am trying hard,” she tweeted, but “I am a work in progress, just as anyone else.”

Leaving the Canalis home the next day, Clooney posed with a neighbor’s baby. When an older woman shouted in Italian, “It’s your turn now!” Elisabetta simply smiled.
