Lindsay Lohan had vowed to stay in for New Year’s Eve, and she kept her word … um, kind of. The night before the big holiday, the “Liz & Dick” actress hit London’s Mayfair district for dinner at C London Restaurant with her mom Dina, both of them wearing matching mini dresses and fur coats. According to Radar Online, Lindsay “looked strangely out of it while talking to a female friend during the dinner.” As the two Lohans left the establishment, they appeared unsteady with their eyes glazed over. Apparently, the 50-year-old mom of four even had to be helped to the car after she stumbled.
The 26-year-od spent the following day on New Year’s Eve shopping up a storm at Harrod’s. But she didn’t arrive back to the Dorchester Hotel until nearly midnight … six hours after the high-end department store closed. It’s unclear where Lohan had been all that time, but when she got out of her chauffeured car, the actress looked out of it and bloated as a security guard guided her out of a car and into the hotel lobby.
Although she called it an “early” night on New Year’s Eve, it was hardly the case on January 1 when Lohan partied until the wee hours of the following day at Boujis nightclub, this time without her mother. At 3:30 a.m., the exhausted-looking actress emerged with a new group of friends, including a mystery man, who all followed her back to her hotel room.
As to be expected, Lohan’s estranged father Michael voiced his outrage that his ex-wife was out partying with their troubled daughter, who is due in court on January 15 to face a slew of charges stemming from her June car accident, including lying to police. "Is this a case of the blind leading the blind or what?" Michael told Radar. “Maybe instead of checking into hotels and night clubs in London, Mommy Dearest and daughter should have checked into rehab together – but then again, neither of them have alcohol or drug problems! … How disgusting is this when Lindsay has a court date coming up that can put her in jail or rehab? It might have been a better idea if she checked into rehab already, to show the judge that she is serious about getting better and avoiding jail time!"
But it doesn’t seem like Lindsay is too concerned. On New Year’s Eve, she tweeted, “i feel very blessed to be able to spend time w/ my mom, family&very wonderful friends. Very grateful.. May only good things come this year.”
Well, she’ll find out January 15 if those things will be good … or if she’ll wind up back behind bars.
