New York: Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer has rubbished reports that the actress agreed to go to rehab only if the facility allowed her to take Adderall.
According to TMZ.com, the ‘Mean Girls’ star takes the psychostimulant for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder on a daily basis and was prepared to go ahead with a trial in her recent lying-to-cops case unless her ongoing Adderall use was attached to her plea deal, the New York Daily News reported.
The deal, approved by a California judge two weeks ago, includes 90 days of residential rehab, 18 months of psychological counseling and 30 days of community service.
Lohan’s lawyer Mark Heller said the no-jail plea agreement did not include an Adderall rider.
“That was never a part of any discussion with the prosecutors or the court. That was never an issue we addressed,” Heller said on Monday.
One of Lohan’s 2010 probation reports said the scandal magnet had been taking the amphetamine-based prescription drug “for as long as she can remember.”
The troubled star has until May 2 to enroll in rehab or risk immediate jail.
The report listed her other prescriptions as the antidepressants Zoloft and trazadone and the powerful opiate Dilaudid.
Heller said that he was “considering a number of different facilities” that meet Lohan’s court-ordered needs.
