Troubled LiLo wants professional helpComment on this story
London - Lindsay Lohan has allegedly admitted she needs professional help.
The troubled actress - who is facing a possible eight months in jail after her probation was revoked last week because she lied about being behind the wheel during a car crash in June - has reportedly told friends that she knows her life has spun out of control again and believes professional therapy will help her get her life back on track.
A source close to the "inconsolable" 26-year-old actress - who attempted to overhaul her life and reignite her career after completing the terms of her last court ordered sentence for jewellery theft in March - told gossip website TMZ.com that Lindsay has been repeatedly calling her lawyer Shawn Holley in tears in recent days and has admitted she has hit rock bottom again.
But the 'Liz & Dick' star is said to still believe her bad group of friends are to blame for her constant legal troubles and led to her run-ins with "opportunists" seeking to provoke her and profit from it.
Lindsay is also still adamant she doesn't have a problem with drugs and alcohol, but thinks that counselling can solve her all of her problems.
Therapy is said to be the only possible way for the actress to avoid jail time for violating her probation.
Meanwhile, Lindsay’s mother, Dina, has entered the fray in her daughter’s reportedly strained relations with Charlie Sheen.
The ‘Anger Management’ actor recently gave the troubled starlet $100,000 to help pay off her hefty $233,904 tax bill and while Lindsay didn’t thank him until Charlie publicly complained, Lindsay’s mother insists the pair are close.
She told Perezhilton.com: "Lindsay continues to feel an immeasurable respect and love for her dear friend Charlie Sheen. They have a deep bond and she has expressed privately her sincerest gratitude to Charlie for his immense generosity on her behalf. She and I are deeply appreciative for his kindest of gestures. Charlie you are a true gentleman."
Lindsay, 26, sent Charlie a bunch of flowers and a hand-written letter in which she explained to him that she didn't mean to be rude but couldn't contact him because she lost his number when her phone broke recently.
The former 'Two And A Half Men' star generously helped out his 'Scary Movie 5' co-star when he heard she was having financial difficulties after not being paid for one of her projects but Charlie admitted he was unimpressed that she accepted money from him but didn't acknowledge it.
He said: "She got shorted and I found out, so I said: 'Here'. I'm still waiting for a text to say 'Thank you'. Anything you know?" - BangShowbiz
