Now that she received court permission to leave the Betty Ford Center for a Malibu rehab, Lindsay Lohan wants to continue her 2013 Treatment Tour and head east – and RadarOnline.com has the exclusive details.
“Lindsay wants to transfer again,” a source told Radar. “She want to head east to where she wanted to go all along.”
A judge and prosecutor signed off recently on Lindsay’s transfer from Betty Ford to Cliffside Rehab Center. The actress has been court ordered to spend 90 days in rehab.
“She wants to be on the east coast because it’s easier for family to see her,” Michael Lohan told Radar after a report surfaced that claimed a judge has approved her transfer to Seafield Center in Westhampton Beach, N.Y.
And while that report has not been verified as accurate by Radar, her dad tells Radar that she has always wanted to do her rehab time on the east coast.
“From the outset Seasfield and Lukens were approved for Lindsay but (her former attorney) Mark Heller had it in his mind to keep her in Morningside for his own reasons,” Michael, who is affiliated with Florida-based Lukens, told Radar in an exclusive interview.
Lindsay walked in – and out – of Morningside within minutes after being ordered to rehab, landing in Betty Ford. Michael Lohan has made it clear that he is certainly no fan of Heller, who has been replaced by Lindsay’s former attorney, Los Angeles powerhouse Shawn Holley.
“When it was time to transfer (from Betty Ford) the first alternative was to keep Lindsay n California,” Michael told Radar.
“But now that she’s doing so well part of her transitional process would be for her to be closer to her family. So whether it’s Seafield or the Luken institute remains to be seen.
“In my opinion Seafield is a wonderful place managed by some very good people. But I don’t believe Lindsay would be as happy there or get the same treatment she would at Lukens.
“Seafield has about 10 times the amount of people as Lukens and the accommodations aren’t the same. I’m just leaving it in God’s hands and relying on the court to make the right decision.”
