Lindsay Lohan Admits She's Done Coke 10 Or 15 Times

Prior to entering rehab, Lindsay Lohan sat down with Piers Morgan for a little chat. During the interview, she was asked about her cocaine usage. She told the journalist she’d only done coke four times and was miraculously caught twice. Let the record show that number was at best, a poor estimate and at worst, an outright lie.
Last night on the new episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter, Lohan sat down with the talk show queen and talked pretty frankly about her life and her long and sketchy history of drug and alcohol abuse. The Mean Girls actress repeatedly said drinking was her main problem, but she also admitted the real number of times she did cocaine was “like 10 to 15.”
Here’s a portion of the quote, as per The Los Angeles Times…
“It allowed me to drink more. That’s why I did it. It was a party thing.”
That’s a pretty honest assessment of her own motivations. In fact, it’s probably an example of the type of frank appraisals she agreed to offer for last night’s interview and an upcoming documentary series following her life that will air on OWN in exchange for an estimated two million dollar payment. That’s right. Lindsay might not be able to secure lead roles in big time movies right now, but she can certainly turn heads with news stories and interviews about her bevy of personal problems.
Those personal problems have been going on for almost a decade, but her most recent troubles began last summer when she got into a car accident and told the police her assistant was driving. Both her assistant and witnesses told another story, and the DA’s office eventually charged her with lying to police. Through a plea bargain, she was sentenced to ninety days in a lockdown rehabilitation facility. By all accounts, her stay went extremely well. It officially ended at the beginning of August, and in the few weeks since, she’s done everything right. She’s said the right things, shown up to the right appointments and made the most of her opportunities on shows like Chelsea Lately and Eastbound & Down.
Regardless of whether Lohan did cocaine ten times or one hundred times, the most important number is related to the times she uses again in the future. People might be lining up to give her a second chance this time around, but I highly doubt they’ll be so courteous if she chooses snorting coke and pounding shots over arriving to work on time once again. You only get so many chances before even your biggest supporters choose to wash themselves clean.
We’ll keep you updated.
