The actress, who last month appeared in the Lifetime movie, Liz & Dick, has been at odds with the IRS for several years. She owes more than $200,000 in back taxes due to a failure to disclose income and failing to file some years. Last month, actor Charlie Sheen gave Lohan $100,000 to help pay off her outstanding tax bill.
This isn’t the only trouble for Lohan, though. Last week she was arrested in New York City for allegedly assaulting a fortune teller in a nightclub. The fight began over one of the performers in the boy band, The Wanted.
Lohan’s family and friends have begun to encourage her to return to a rehab clinic, both to win favor with the courts and to control her reportedly two-liters-of-vodka-per-day habit. She has refused so far, claiming she doesn’t need a course of rehab.
The latest arrest could provide even more trouble for the actress. If convicted, she could be found in violation of her parole in California and returned there to begin a jail term.
