It seems like every few months the tabloids declare that Lindsay Lohan has officially hit rock bottom. In fact, the image I included in this post blares that very statement -- and sadly, it's from 2009. She hasn't exactly cleaned up her act since then, and if the rumors about her current living situation are true, things are continuing to spiral downhill for Lohan in an alarming fashion.
The thing about rock bottoms is that they're sort of a moving target: things can almost always get worse when you're on a self-destructive path. And truly, the only person who can identify a rock bottom is the person experiencing it -- that's usually the defining moment when someone decides to try and turn their life around. So for those still hoping Lindsay Lohan will pull out of her tailspin, maybe the fact that she's had to move back in with her mom Dina Lohan will be the (one millionth) wake-up call she's needed.
Word on the street is that Lohan is in a dire financial straits since the IRS froze her bank accounts in December due to $233,904 in unpaid taxes. She's not exactly raking in the cash these days as an actress, and couldn't swing the $8,000-a-month rent for her Beverly Hills home. Multiple reports say she's now living in Long Island, NY with her mom Dina.
According to one of those oft-quoted "source":
For the past three months that has been her home base. Dina has been trying to get her to move home for years so she can keep a close eye on her. She didn’t want her in L.A. anymore. Not only is she in New York now, she’s in the next room.
If this is true, well, there's no shame in relying on family to help you through a tough financial situation. Shit happens, right? But we're not talking about a young person who suddenly lost their job and needs some support getting back on her feet -- we're talking about Lindsay Lohan, who's reportedly blown MILLIONS on ... god only knows. Worse, this isn't some loving family member ready to shower her in helpful advice, this is DINA LOHAN. This is, without a shadow of a doubt, the single worst roommate Lindsay Lohan could possibly have right now.
Except maybe Michael Lohan. Yeah, actually, that would probably be worse. (Did you know he once tweeted that Lindsay has HIV? My god, he's a class act.)
I've long given up on predicting that Lindsay Lohan's current troubles will be bad enough for her to get help. I don't know what, if anything, can possibly entice her to change her life and maybe reclaim her shot at the career she once seemed destined for, but it's got to feel pretty bad to be living with her mom. On the other hand, I'm sure Dina has some nice distracting partying and drugs in mind for her dear daughter, whose welfare she clearly cares so much about.
Do you think there's any chance that Lindsay living with Dina Lohan is a good thing?
