The actress has allegedly used Twitter to say that she did in fact fail the court ordered drug test by Judge Elden Fox.
TMZ reports that failed drug test could derail her plans on a movie come back. She is scheduled to film "Inferno" in Louisiana and make an appearance on the show "Saturday Night Live" in New York City. She has to have approval from the court to travel to those locations.
Lohan's verified Twitter account has the following message from the actress about the drug test.
"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result. Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences. I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful....Thank you all!!!"
Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail and addiction treatment in July for violating terms of her probation for a DUI. Lohan was released on August 2 after serving 2 weeks in jail. Her early release was due to prison over-crowding and was not because of preferred treatment. She left the jail for inpatient treatment where she was to serve 90 days. After only 23 days she was released from that treatment centre. Her lawyer said that the doctors at UCLA felt that she had done what had been required of her at the time. She is now undergoing out-patient treatment.
