Lindsay Lohan has checked herself into a rehab facility, following a day of confusion over whether she was complying with court-ordered treatment for a reckless driving charge. Lohan reportedly arrived at the Betty Ford Center, which is about 120 miles (193 km) east of Los Angeles, early Friday (May 03) morning. Lohan must complete 90 days in a locked rehab center by July 31 to comply with a March plea bargain. Lohan is also shuffling her legal team. She has rehired her former attorney, Shawn Holley. Holley, who represented Lohan for several years and managed to keep the actress out of jail for a jewelry theft, was part of the O.J. Simpson defense team and is among Southern California's top criminal defense attorneys.
Reese Witherspoon has pleaded no contest to a charge of disorderly conduct and paid a 100 dollar fine after she was arrested with her husband following an evening out in Atlanta last month. Her husband, Jim Toth entered a guilty plea to drunk driving and received a 600 dollar fine. He must also complete 40 hours of community service. Video of the arrest surfaced online showing Witherspoon accusing the state trooper who arrested her of harassment. Since the incident Witherspoon has publicly apologized for her actions.
The "Rolling Stones" are on sale. The veteran rock band announced on their official website this week that they were releasing an additional number of tickets at a modest $85 - a far cry from the whopping 600 dollar priced seats that remain unsold at multiple venues. According to the website, some of the $85 seats will be among the best seats in house in the "Tongue Pit," with others spread around the arena. Buyers will be notified of their seat location on the day of the show. The Stones kick off their tour on Friday (May 03) in Los Angeles.
