Lindsay Lohan Leaves Rehab, Smiles in First Pictures
Tuesday was the first day of the rest of Lindsay Lohan's life. Following a court-mandated 90-day stint, the 27-year-old Canyons star departed Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center on July 30. Wearing sunglasses, a girly blue minidress, fringe leather jacket and booties, with her famous hair a strawberry-blonde hue, a healthy, happy-looking Lohan smiled in photos as she said her goodbyes.
Cliffside was actually the third facility that Lohan stayed in for her latest stint, part of her March 2013 no-contest pleas to reckless driving and lying to police. She began her stint at Morningside Recovery Center in Newport Beach, Calif. May 3, at the beginning of May, but checked out of after one day before moving on the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif.; in another court-approved move, she left Betty Ford for Cliffside June 12.
It was the seventh rehab stint overall for Lohan, who admitted her own cynicism about the effectiveness of a court-ordered lockdown in an interview with Piers Morgan before she checked in.
"I think there are other things I could do instead of going to a rehab center that would benefit me more," the former child star said. "The best thing they could do for me would be to make me go abroad to different countries and work with children."
