Lindsay Lohan is “on her way home” from a Miami area hospital after being treated for an asthma attack, her publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, said Thursday.
Lohan’s mother and manager, Dina, was quoted Wednesday as saying her 19-year-old daughter was improving after being hospitalized Monday night and that she planned to take her home to New York to recuperate, the Associated Press reports.
While Lohan was in the hospital this week, the new Vanity Fair magazine hit newsstands featuring a cover story in which the Mean Girls star lifts the curtain on her self-confessed bulimia, drug use and emotional wreckage over her relationships with her volatile father and her first boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama.
“I was making myself sick,” Lohan says of her eating disorder. She credits “Saturday Night Live” producer Lorne Michaels and head writer Tina Fey with staging an intervention. “(They) sat me down, literally before I was going to do (SNL), and they said, ‘You need to take care of yourself. We care about you too much, and we’ve seen too many people do this, and you’re talented,’ and I just started bawling. I knew I had a problem and I couldn’t admit it.”
Adds Lohan, “I saw that SNL after I did it. My arms were disgusting. I had no arms.”
The actress also says that she used drugs “a little,” then quickly adds: “I’ve gotten that out of my system. … I don’t want people to think that I’ve done … you know what I mean? It’s kind of a sore subject.”
Lohan celebrated New Year’s Eve in Miami, hosting a party at Prive Nightclub when the asthma attack occurred, Sloane said earlier this week. The rep added that Florida’s humidity may have contributed to the condition of the actress, who has suffered from asthma since childhood.
Lohan is set to begin shooting her new film, Chapter 27, in two weeks. The movie, about John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman, stars Lohan as a Lennon fan who befriends Chapman (played by oft-rumored beau Jared Leto) just days before he assassinates the musician outside his New York apartment building.
