What A Difference A Year Can Make
Lindsay Lohan is spending her 27th birthday in rehab, but it seems like she is taking her court-ordered stint very seriously.
What a difference a year makes! Last year, Lindsay Lohan spent her 26th birthday partying at the West Hollywood nightclub Bootsy Bellows. This year, the birthday girl is celebrating her special day in rehab.
Lohan's 27th birthday marks a big transitional year for the troubled actress. She spent much of the last year in and out of the courtroom after a series of probation violations and legal issues. However, it does seem like the Liz & Dick star is taking the 90-day court-ordered rehab stint seriously.
A source told E! News, "She is focusing on getting healthy."
She purposely transferred from the Betty Ford clinic to Cliffside Malibu in early June to change the focus of her treatment.
It was her estranged dad who revealed to the entertainment channel that the move was made because "she wasn't getting any individual therapy."
Her life at the Malibu facility is definitely a pampered one.
The source said, "She lives in a small room, has a chef that makes her sushi and a fresh garden is available. She is also getting along great with the other residents."
The only person who is expected to visit her on her birthday is lawyer Shawn Holley. The lockdown sentence prevents her from celebrating with her friends outside of the center.
The end of her rehab stay is near though. Lohan should be out of Cliffside Malibu by early August. Her big return to the red carpet is expected for the premiere of The Canyons at the Venice Film Festival. The festival begins on Aug. 28.
Happy birthday, Lindsay! Here's to a new beginning.
