Washington: Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan has been reportedly barred from attending the premiere of her new film ‘Machete’.

Though the actress was released from postjail rehab on Aug. 24 after 22 days, a source revealed that Robert Rodriguez—co-director of the film— didn’t want her to attend an event for the film the next night.

"He was frantically trying to track down her manager to make sure she didn’t go," quoted a source as saying.

A rep of 20th Century Fox has rejected the report saying it`s "not true."

However, the source added: "She wasn’t welcome there."
