Lindsay Lohan is back on the front page this week after she got arrested for fighting at Avenue nightclub in NYC – and her alleged alcohol problem could have something to do with it.
Apparently, the victim of Lindsay’s wrath was a psychic from NYC, who had offered Lindsay a free reading while at the club.
According to TMZ, the victim believes that Lindsay called her a “f*cking gypsy,” which completely set her off to throw her own jabs and insults at the actress.
Reports say that Lindsay was jealous of a girl who was talking to a member of boy band The Wanted, whom she had brought to the club that night. But it turns out that the fight allegedly started once the psychic came at Lindsay with insults.
TMZ also reports that Lindsay has developed a drinking problem over the past few months that involves her drinking up to sometimes two liters of vodka per day! Sources told the site that she becomes violent when she drinks heavily, which she had been all day leading up to the Justin Bieber concert and the club afterwards.
While many believe the fight was triggered because she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, Lindsay’s lawyer says that she was clean that night, according to E! News.
Her lawyer told the site:
“I can tell you when I was with her this morning; she was in great condition. She was certainly not intoxicated, certainly not under the influence of drugs. She was clear [and] lucid, her eyes were clear. No alcohol involvement whatsoever on this occasion.”
Despite Lindsay’s sobriety level, the assistant who bailed her out of jail the next day believes that she “desperately” needs help. Supposedly, Lindsay started yelling at her assistant Gavin Doyle after she was released, inevitably throwing him out of her car.
Fortunately, Lindsay’s mom Dina Lohan is sticking by her daughter through everything, since there are talks of Lindsay having her probation revoked.
Dina gave a statement recently to Radar Online:
“At this time, I kindly ask that you extend to my family the time we need to address my daughter’s circumstances with the appropriate parties,” she told the site. “As a mother, you always love and pray for the best with all your children.”
We all must stay tuned to find out if Lindsay lands herself back in jail…
