Just two weeks ago Lindsay Lohan told Matt Lauer that she was clean and sober and heading in the right direction. She said partying wasn’t her thing anymore and she had given up on the nightlife that got her in so much trouble to begin with. Sounded good at the time, but then last night the struggling actress turned Playboy model struck someone with her car after leaving a club and is now being accused of a possible hit and run.
Just to recap, when Lauer asked Lohan two weeks ago if she still goes to parties and clubs and risks the temptation, she adamantly responded:
I could, but that’s not my thing anymore. I went out, actually, a few months ago with a friend. And I was so uncomfortable. Not because I felt tempted, just because it was just the same thing that it always was before. And it just wasn’t fun for me. I’ve become more of a homebody. And I like that.
Apparently she didn’t like it enough because she hit someone with her car last night when leaving the Sayers Club in Hollywood around midnight.
Spectators told police that Lohan’s car was surrounded by crowds and the paparazzi as she tried to make her way past the nearby Hookah Lounge. TMZ reports that the 25-year-old “made contact with the manager of the Hookah Lounge with her car and then peeled out.”
Cops were called and the manager said he was fine. But now, apparently after finding out who the driver was, the manager is claiming he was injured and had to be rushed to the emergency room. We smell a lawsuit on the horizon!
But the bigger concern, really, is Lohan’s mental health. Is she as stable as she just told the world she was two weeks ago? And what about her being a homebody?
Plenty of people have been skeptical about her ability to recover so quickly, to which she told Lauer:
I want to move forward with my life, in the right direction. And I want to keep growing in the right ways.
Hitting someone with your car and then fleeing the scene doesn’t seem like the right direction, at all. Neither does continuing to hit the nightclubs where she’s just bound to get into more trouble. We can’t help but continue to worry about Lohan and her mental health.
