Cops just showed up at Lindsay Lohan’s Beverly Hills home after Michael Lohan and others tried to stage an intervention to get Lindsay Lohan into treatment … TMZ has learned.
Michael Lohan and several others showed up at Lindsay’s house Friday afternoon … believing she has fallen off the wagon … and they believe that’s why she has become a no-show for post-production work on her upcoming movie, “The Canyons.”
Michael tells TMZ … Lindsay’s entire team is on board with the intervention, though we cannot confirm that.
We’re told Lindsay was at the house when Michael and team arrived, but someone claiming to be her boyfriend shooed them away. The “boyfriend” told TMZ Lindsay was inside and any problems Lindsay has will not be solved by her father.
Someone called the cops to report a trespassing call. Cops are currently on scene.
Good God. I wonder what Lindsay‘s being all intervened-upon for. Is it alcohol? Cocaine? Meth? All of the above? Because gosh, just the other day she was looking almost remotely clear-eyed. It’s a shame that didn’t last for longer than, you know, a half-day or whatever.
Also, you guys remember how Emily told you just hours ago that Bret Easton Ellis Tweeted that Lindsay had missed work, because yeah. That happened. And Lindsay *still* hasn’t responded to the Tweet. Moreover? Lindsay hasn’t Tweeted anything in almost three whole days, so that’s got to be saying something right there, guys.
I don’t know about you, but I think that we’re in for an interesting weekend—to say the least!—hearing about this surprise intervention happening just for Lindsay.

Now that Lindsay Lohan is finally starting to get steady work again, it stands to reason that she will finally start f-cking up her career again, doesn’t it? We kept hearing how awful she was on the set of her Lifetime movie, we heard about how unprofessional she was on the set of Scary Movie 8,092,544 or whatever, and now we’re hearing about how she screwed up on the set of The Canyons, her softcore porn. Except this time it’s extra fun, because we’re hearing directly from the people who worked on the film.
Bret Easton Ellis, right? You know him. He wrote American Psycho, and he writes screenplays, including the one for Lindsay’s movie. And here is a thing that he tweeted a couple of days ago:
“Patrick Bateman has just headed over to Lindsay Lohan’s hotel to confront her as to why she missed her f-cking ADR on ‘The Canyons’ today…”
Patrick Bateman, of course, being the crazy-faced serial killer in American Psycho, and ADR being that thing you do in movies where you have to re-record lines in post-production. Oh, and Lindsay Lohan, of course, being our favorite f-ck-up.
Lindsay hasn’t responded to the tweet yet, but we do know that a source close to Lindsay said that “she did not miss anything.” That sounds totally legit, right? Someone claims that Lindsay Lohan screwed something up, some “source” says “nuh-uh,” and then we all just forget about it. Girl, please. Or, more accurately, Dina, please.

OK, well, “good” is maybe a little over-excited exuberance, but guys. Guys! Lindsay Lohan looks not horrible in these pictures! Right? And honestly, what I think really did it in this particular set of photos (aside from the fact that Lindsay was probably coming down from her mind-blowing meth high, thus giving the appearance of relative sobriety) is the eyes. She doesn’t have six different eyeshadows on at one time, and her eyeliner is barely there. You can actually see her coke-addled eyes for the first time in a long time, and I think it’s done wonders for her general appearance. Also? The red hair? While it’s not my favorite particular shade of red, it’s way better than the vomity, brand-new penny color she had going on a few weeks back.
What do you think, guys—is Lindsay Lohan looking not like a half-melted piece of cat shit on your front stoop a sign of the looming apocalypse?

Guys, it’s our girl! It’s Lindsay! She might have had a few bumps in the road these past few weeks – domestic violence, a possible assault, a hospital visit brought on by stress from being arrested for hitting someone with her car – but things are finally starting to work themselves out. She’s got a couple of movies in the works, and just next month we’ll get to see her portrayal of Elizabeth Taylor in the Lifetime feature, Liz & Dick.
She’s also been invited back to the Chateau Marmont after being banned for not paying her bill:
The actress reached out to hotel magnate Andre Balazs — owner of the Chateau along with a slew of other properties — in hopes to reclaim her stomping grounds.
We’re told LiLo and Andre have been friends for years and she made it clear that the whole ordeal was a giant misunderstanding. Lilo offered to pay off the debt (which we’re told she did) if Andre could have a chat with the Chateau staff.
Our sources tell us, Andre informed LiLo he had no idea she had been blacklisted and promised to remedy the situation ASAP.
And she’s also doing an interview with Barbara Walters!
Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ she has been close to Walters for years and that Barbara reached out to her about doing an interview when it was announced she’d playing Liz Taylor in the upcoming “Liz & Dick” biopic.
We’re told LiLo has been hesitant about sit-down interviews because she fears being asked questions she’s not prepared for. But our sources say Lindsay trusts Barbara not to take things too far.
According to our sources, Lindsay and Barbara will sit down sometime in the next few weeks. We’re told the interview will focus on the parallels between the lives of Lindsay and Liz Taylor — things like child stardom, a rough childhood, living life in the public, and also dealing with addiction.
Our sources say the plan is for the interview to air next month to coincide with the premiere of “Liz & Dick.”
Hooray! Lindsay’s back!
[Optimism break: are they honestly still trying to push the "Lindsay and Liz are so very similar!" thing? Because I'm getting pretty sick of hearing about it, especially because every single person who has ever heard the comparison has immediately called bullshit. I think it's more than a little insulting to Elizabeth Taylor's memory, but hey, we always love a Lindsay Lohan interview, so we'll just make some meth-sprinkled lemonade, won't we?]

Oh, that time that Lindsay said that Dina was on cocaine? And “like, touching her neck and shit”? And that “she’s like the f-cking devil right now”? Oh yeah, and that thing about how the fight was about money that Lindsay gave to Dina?
Yeah, none of that was true. Why would you even think that? Because there was a recording of her saying all those things? Psh, don’t be so naive.
Lindsay called TMZ and told them that she “told my dad a really hurtful and untruthful lie about my mom. She was not on cocaine.” And also “daughters have fights with their moms. It happens a lot. It’s normal.” See, no big deal! I know that personally I call my dad and claim that my mom is on cocaine and touching her neck all the time. It’s normal! And then me and my mom, we start breaking shit, and she scratches me, and someone calls 911 and tells them that she’s holding me against my will. Happens a lot.
Oh, but Lindsay is also still talking about that Dr. Phil interview that Dina did, calling it “vile” and “disgusting.” Father of the year Michael Lohan invited himself into the conversation by saying “Why is it that every time someone nails Dina doing something wrong, either on camera or on tape, they are always lying,” which is a fair point. It’s gross that he’s still talking to the media about his daughter, but it’s still a fair point.
This is completely unrelated, but Lindsay also said this last night about her pick for president:
“I just think employment is really important right now. So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now. It’s a long story.”
Probably because Obama totally snubbed her via Twitter. It’s a long story.

Lindsay Lohan was telling the truth when she said her mom was on the verge of losing her house …and Dina Lohan is not out of the woods yet … TMZ has learned.
According to court docs obtained by TMZ … JPMorgan Chase Bank filed documents in 2010 to foreclose on Dina’s Long Island home because she had fallen behind on payments.
Now here’s where it gets interesting …The bank and Dina cut some sort of deal in which mama Lohan agreed to a new payment agreement that would prevent her home from going on the auction block.
Sources close to Lindsay tell us … Dina didn’t ante up on her own — she got money from Lindsay to make the payments.
We’re told Lindsay made payments that helped Dina dig out of the hole, but recently she fell behind again and Lindsay had to give her MORE bailout money — $40,000. And that’s the 40 grand that Lindsay and her mom were arguing over when things erupted in the limo early Wednesday.
One final thing. We’re told Dina withdrew lots of other money from the Bank of Lindsay, including money to help pay for her kid brother’s tuition.
During that 911 call, Dina also told Lindsay that lovable line, “you’re dead to me,” and Dina had also had at least four glasses of wine (is that a big deal?) and no dinner when they had their fight. But a few hours after the police came to Dina’s house, they were photographed hugging as Lindsay left, so I guess things are back to ok in the dysfunctional house of Lohan.
So what does Dina do that she needs Lindsay to give her all this money? I realize that Michael Lohan isn’t all that great at making child support payments, and it must not be cheap to be a single mother living in New York, but wouldn’t she have made a good amount of money from all those interviews she’s given about Lindsay? Isn’t she supposed to be doing a number of reality shows? I’m all for helping out a loved one when she’s in need, but come on, Dina.
