PETA offers to pay for Lindsay Lohan’s rehab
London, Oct 29 (IANS) People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have offered to pay off actress Lindsay Lohan’s rehab bill if she turns vegetarian.
Lohan is reportedly struggling to fund her treatment at the Betty Ford Center, reports dailystar.co.uk.
‘We understand that you’ve fallen on tough economic times, so we’re writing to you with an offer that we sincerely hope you’ll consider,’ an official at PETA wrote in a mail to the actress.
‘PETA will help pay your $50,000 bill for substance addiction treatment if you’ll rid yourself of one more toxic substance: meat. As you know, a crucial part of any recovery is showing charity to others. One way to do this is to be kind to animals, the Earth, and your own body. You’ll never regret it.’
Lindsay, who voluntarily entered the facility last month, was told by the court that she must stay in rehab until Jan 3 and the troubled actress has been warned by Judge Elden Fox and her lawyer that this is her last chance at avoiding a long jail sentence.
Fox told the actress, who broke the terms of her probation when she failed two drugs tests for cocaine and amphetamines in September, she would face six months in prison if she provided another positive drugs test before her next court appearance.
