Lindsay Lohan has been on her toes lately to defend herself from report that she has been neglecting her court ordered service at a Women’s Center in Los Angeles. Online celebrity gossip site TMZ.com reported Thursday that the Women’s Center had booted the 25-year-old star from their organization after she had failed to live up to her obligations.
As part of a probation deal after the troubled actress accepted a ‘no contest’ plea in her most recent scuffle with the law, Lohan was made to serve 360 hours at the LA Women’s Center. She was also ordered to complete therapy sessions. The case judge, Stephanie Sautner, made it very clear, according to DailyMail.co.uk, that a single failure to comply with the therapy sessions would be interpreted as a violation of her probation.
The reason why the starlet was kicked off the previous program is unconfirmed by her publicist but according to TMZ’s sources, Lohan had ‘blown off’ nine appointments at the Women’s Center and not fulfilled the 4 hour minimum when she had arrived, often leaving the facility after an hour.
In the past few weeks, Lohan has been tending to her celebrity life and making up for a dry spell in cinema by taking up fashion modeling. Her recent trip around Europe has left some in doubt whether she has been able to fulfill her legal obligations back in the US. At the Fashion Week in Milan, German designer Philip Plein revealed that Lohan would be the new face of his collection.
While in Paris for a photo shoot, Lindsey had told friends that she had cleared the trip with her therapist so she could attend remote sessions over the phone and that she had completed two 45 minute calls. According to TMZ, Lohan is under the impression that the probation department ‘has it in for her’ and wants to set an example of her by claiming that she is failing to comply with the court order.
On her WhoSay account, Lohan wanted to put an end to the speculations: “I am working hard and fulfilling my obligations every single day, to the court as well as myself [...] If I travel, its for work and its been approved. As is anything I do when I leave the state. I’d appreciate it if people will just let me do what is asked of me, so that I can get my life back.
Please ignore the reports which have no truth to them. Thank you.” The actress will continue her community service at the American Red Cross group in LA.
