Earlier this week, the UK’s Daily Mail Online published a thousands-of-words-long print interview–because no one dares put her on camera for extended periods of time at this point–about Lindsay Lohan’s drink and drug habits.
In the interview, conducted shorty before the actress went into rehab, Lohan claimed to not have a serious drinking problem and to not have a drug problem at all. Moreover, she claimed that cocaine isn’t even that great and you’re somehow not an alcoholic if you drink socially; even if your drinking bleeds over into the daytime and has knock-on effects in other areas of your life.
Morgan tells In Touch Weekly Magazine in a subsequent interview, the 26-year-old was lying by underplaying her habit. Although he qualifies her lies by saying at least she gave more to him than she did to other people.
While Lindsay Lohan’s paying her dues in rehab at the Betty Ford Center, Piers Morgan is speaking out exclusively to In Touch about her drug use— and accuses the actress of lying during her recent interview with him!
“She is easily influenced. It’s a little bit of herself and a little bit of other people,” Piers, 48, told the mag of the troubled star at The Brady Campaign for Prevention of Gun Violence Gala. “I don’t think she told me the whole truth, but she told me more than she told other people.”
So what exactly did the Liz & Dick leading lady tell Piers?
“Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless,” Lindsay told the journalist. “The first few times I was court ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time.”
Lindsay also downplayed her drug usage claiming she has only taken drugs 4 or 5 times— despite her public record that includes two cocaine possession arrests, two failed cocaine drug tests, and a number of video tapes and photos of the her snorting the drug.
Piers tells In Touch, “She was more upset about her drug abuse, the pills she takes and those things before.”
While Linds my not seem mentally prepared for rehab— Piers adding that at 26 -years-old, Lindsay’s only “a little kid”— she definitely had time to prepare in other ways. The actress recently shared a photo of herself packing on Instagram which was captioned “90 days and 270 looks”. - via In Touch Weekly.
