Dr. Drew Pinsky is questioning Lindsay Lohan’s explanation of her recent medical mishap, saying he believes it’s physically impossible for a twenty-five-year-old to be unable to be woken because of exhaustion and dehydration, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As previously reported, Lohan was treated for “exhaustion” after working all night on the set ofLiz & Dick, a week and a half ago.
The actress was found in the penthouse of the Ritz-Carlton and paramedics were called. Lindsay’s rep released a statement at the time stating: “Lindsay worked a grueling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 p.m. and worked through the night until 8 a.m. this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene. Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon.”
“It’s absolutely impossible for a normal healthy, twenty-five-year-old woman to be unable to be woken because of dehydration and exhaustion,” Dr. Drew told RadarOnline.com exclusively. “Something else was obviously going on with Lindsay, because like I said, that just doesn’t happen, even if she had been working grueling hours. For someone to be unable to be woken and basically unconscious is very serious. Eighty-five-year-old men and women can be in that state, but not someone who is Lindsay’s age. I wish Lindsay only the best, but I’m truly worried about her.”
Lohan is scheduled to complete filming on Liz & Dick in the next two weeks, and the Lifetime biopic will air this fall. Dr. Drew’s show on HLN can be seen nightly at 6 p.m.
LiLo’s rep Steve Honig tells Radar, “I think it’s irresponsible for a doctor to be making a diagnosis about a person they have not examined, or about a situation of which they do not have all the facts. Unless, of course, they are looking to get publicity for themselves.”
We all know how Dr. Drew likes his gossip just as much as the next person, don’t we? Because that’s really what this is. I don’t think he ever says anything about a celebrity in a specific attempt to offer medical advice, I think he’s just a big ol’ gossip and he has a different frame of reference that he can use. I’m not saying it’s a good thing for him to be doing, and I understand why so many people feel weird about it, but guys, let Drew dish when he needs to, ok?
