Lindsay Lohan Is a 'Nervous, Fidgety Mess'

Posted: 05:32 PM ET



Lindsay Lohan has less than 24 hours until she's scheduled to turn herself in and start serving her jail sentence, but the actress is a wreck about spending time behind bars.

"It's been a rough weekend," says a source. "She has not been able to sleep and has barely been eating. All weekend, Lindsay kept crying, chain smoking and chewing her nails."

Lohan, 24, has been staying at the Pickford Lofts sober living facility in L.A. for almost a week and has had frequent visits from ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson, mom Dina, sister Ali and other pals, but even all the company hasn't been able to ease Lohan's anxiety.

"She is a nervous, fidgety mess, and her legal team, family and friends are very concerned about her fragile state," the source adds.

While the troubled actress seemed to be coming to terms with her situation last week, according to sources, friends now say the scary reality of spending time confined to a cell has set in.

"She's been picturing herself in jail and she can't handle the idea of it," says another pal, who just last week said Lohan was feeling better. "She doesn't want to go. She doesn't think it's safe. She doesn't know how she'll make it."

She should face her responsibilities. She should think about when she was driving under the influence how much danger she put on peoples lives. It is time for her to grow up and face reality, there are some things money can't buy (like peoples lives).

Lawyer Goldberg Remarks after Interviewing Lohan- – – – Re her 3-year probation was completed, flexible class schedule agreement, was working. He Advised her to leave LA, a toxic environment and susceptible to a probation system setup for her to fail. This lawyer makes sense – the Probation system will harass her for years for publicity. She must go to NY, Chicago, Canada, UK, anywhere else. Her Probation report said Doctors started her on Mood Meds years ago (Incredibly, they were also allowed in her previous Rehab because of prescription)! Split the blame Three-ways: Doctors, Lawyers, 20-year-old.

Sorry, I know I should probably give her the benefit of the doubt but this young woman has been manipulating everyone around her including the press and has never had to pay a price for her actions. It's time for a little reality to sink in and I don't buy the story of how fragile she is. She is no more fragile than the next person who breaks the law.

Lindsay thinks just because she's a Hollywood BRAT that she can get away with this. ANY regular John Doe would get the slammer- a long time ago. She needs to suck it up and quit being a CRY BABY! Don't do the crime if you can't do the time! And the whole thing about her being suicidal-PSYCH WATCH!!!

Larry, Let's face it that the Tea party is simply a magnet for those who are anti-President Obama, a black President...nothing but racism. There publicized purpose for existence is noble, but I question why they did not come into existence before this Presidency. What they espouse now was rampant during the Bush administration and well before, but there was no pain. Now the the consequences of those that came before president Obama have come home to roost the pain is being felt. When people are threatened they look for someone to blame and based on this countries racial past it is easy to revert to old habits...the attitude that White's are entitled to God given supremacy . It is incongruent to feel superior at the same time that you have a black leader of America. The natural thing to do for them is to criticize and undermind his agenda...whether it be good for America or not. You see it in the House and Senate at every turn. Need I remind you that the President's administration is no more effective then these branches of our Democracy. I pray that across America that cooler heads will prevail. I offer this historical qoute to all American's, the President, the House and the Senate included, delivered during FDR's first inaugural speech: “Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”. Let's pull together to solve our issues without resorting to mean spiritness caused by fear. Whst happened to our nations mantra; "In God We Trust" .

Mr. Gingrich I challenge your rhetoric concerning President Obama's presidency. How were you rated after 1-1/2 in Congress. I predict that he will go down as one of the greats, in spite of you and the rest of his detractors. He and his fellow Americans will prevail by the God's grace and mercy because he is well intended and has a pure heart; unlike yours. A change is coming to America...get on board and do your part promote unity rather than being divisive for you political gain. Your agenda failed in the past and i guarantee that you won't get another chance to fail.

Wini, keep her behind bars until she sobers up, gets rehab skills to learn how to cope, ensure that she has attended each and every sobriety class that is allowed. Same with all the addicted personalities in this country. They are in denial, have no clue what they are doing to themselves or innocent others. It should be mandatory (3 strike law for addicted personalities) to be locked up until they sober up, attend rehab, and learn what it's like to respect why the should live life sober.

There are so many judgemental, narrow minded people making comments. Ordinary people that haven't a clue about how destroyed her life has been. Jealous people that just hate her and others like her because they have more than them! Putting her in prison for this is nothing more than silly....(as most of the inmature comments) You don't know whats in her mind! You don't know how much her up bringing was destroyed. A person who takes drugs and becomes an addict is "sick"! People are so quick to judge someone on subjects they know nothing of....Thats sad....thats pitiful!! More stupid and small minded people who aren't even aware they are the ones in trouble....being the way they are....

If she would have conducted herself according to her probation, she wouldn't be in this mess. Feel bad for her NOT!! Wonder why I even read the article.

What kind of society are we? We worry about if Lohan has to do her well earned jail sentence, did Mel Gibson slap her ugly girlfriend, how much did MJ earn after his death? Brainless, brainless.......

Meanwhile we are getting ready for another war that will cost us another few billions as two wars are not enough for a superpower as we are. Our economy is going nowhere, our southern beaches will be ruined for a long time, our schools are falling apart and are louzy. So are public roads, bridges and buildings, but we call ourself the richest nation on Earth.

Meanwhile french president Sarkozy travels to the arabs with a large entourage and gets orders for french products worth billions.
German chancellor Merkel visits Russia and comes home with orders for billions of euros of german goods. A week later she goes to China, gets huge orders for german products and VW opens its eight factory in that land. Their economy booms!!!

What does our president do?? Travels to foreign countries with a lot of businessmen to get orders for american products? No, he has visitors here, like Netanyaho, that doesn´t bring us a penny of business, but costs us billions in grants and military equipment.

Our country is going down the drain and we either turn the rudder 180°s or better start learning chinese!!!
All other nations live in peace, know their place on this globe and do the best with peacefull means. Only we try to serve our interests with wars and destruction, not only other countries, but our finances, american families and our once good name.
We should ponder those items, not Lohan and the other ones.

I think she is a real spoiled brat and should handle all that comes to her because she did this herself. If you want to dance, you need to pay the fiddler

I hope and pray that this works for her. I think more than anything she should be in rehab. I think that she did think that she could slide under the radar and be able to escape this sentence due to her celebrity status. Having their way is something that some stars become accustomed to and therefore they come to expect it. I think that although she and the media are vilifying Michael Lohan, he has had the same problems that she is having and he see's his child dealing with the same demons and it breaks his heart. I think that people should give him credit for trying to do what he can to help and also realize that in ways she is just like he is. Grant it, he was probably not there for her growing up because he was always too busy doing his thing or partying like she has in the past. Maybe by God's will she can recover from her addictions, I have faith that she can do that if she wants it bad enough. I pray that she can and she will. I pray that sometime in the future that she can see and understand that her dad is coming from the same place where she is now.

Unlike Mel Gibson case, this one is very simple,and i will only have to comment once.I HAVE TWO SON,,,S one is the same age as LINDSAY and the other is 22,my younger one, is the one that i worry about,he,s smart,goe,s to collage, and work,s full time.but, he doe,s like to so many young people do.i have told him,in the worst possible way,if he does'nt slow down and limit his drinking, i will, have him commited ., in to a program.i would lose his love, for a while, and he would hate me,but ,he seem,s to be turning around, and he is trying very hard.the problem has,nt beeen going on for very long,and i pray all the time that it does,nt ;last. and it,s just a phase he,s going through, with that said, lindsay ,s problem has been going on for it seem,s i see her picture in the magazine,s when i go too the store, that,s where i usually flip through them.In stead of her parent,s being in the lime light, specially her mother , does'nt she hang around club,s with her daughter ??if it was'nt for lindsay's problem,no one would even know who her parent,s were or even looked here we are with her dad on a talk showThey should of intervened along long time ago.they, and i mea,n her mom and dad should of made her go to an intensive program,true love is tuff sometime's.if they had done that we would;nt be seeing picture's of her falling all over the place.the picture's that have being shown of her, that really is, a person that is heading for an early morgue visit.TO NIGHT I WON,T BE WATCHING YOU'R SHOW,but who care's you have million's more that will.jail is'nt going, to help her , she need's to go away to a place for six monthes that is tranquil,with nice surrounding's,and be with people that have medical ex periance, and really care about her well being.By the way what do both parent's do for a living?? and why is the dad so well it because of his daughter's miss fortune.

Lindsey's had enough pampering and the people in her life are of no help. Her mother is a prime enabler and her father is estranged by Lindsey's own admission. She needs INTROSPECTION, something she will not accomplish without the isolation the jail term will offer.
As her father Mike I would hope you can remind her about the celebrity
clinical addicts before her and their fates.

Examples: Michael Jackson, Elvis, Corey Hain

Rockford, Illinois

Lindsey is a hot mess! Maybe jail will teach this entitled little heifer that the world does not revolve around her! Enjoy your salsbury steak for dinner this evening Lindsey. U earned it!

John   July 20th, 2010 9:43 pm ET

There are Jails in West Virgina that have room!!!

Bubba   July 21st, 2010 5:37 am ET

GIVE ME A BREAK.... Lindsey Lohan is an endangerment to society and herself. Sentenced to what ....3 months and will only do 2 weeks. ...she needs to stop the whinning and GROW-UP. All these idiots making excuses and feeling sorry for Miss Lohan are only enablers and need to show tough love, NOT sympathy. If I or any other of us "little people" had gone down the path SHE CHOOSE ....we'd be in jail for a minimue of a year.

Cindy   July 21st, 2010 12:21 pm ET

Can she bounce back? The experts, last night, stated that she might but it depended on her effort.They said that she would sink to a lower low than she is currently at and then would begin to bounce back based on her effort. The dad, however, implied, that the criminal charge or sentence, would be too much on the daughter and asked for the medical charge to occur before the criminal so that she could be stronger to do the criminal charge. Thus, the experts and dad don't agree. The dad thinks she is weak and will fall. The experts state that only she can determine her outcome.

Do her parents have her best interest in mind? not sure. Dad, last night, stated that the mom didn't return his phone calls after the conviction of drugs. The dad, however, has hired lawyer upon lawyer and Mrs. Bloom, last night, one lawyer, stated that the dad was resilent in his effort to protect his child. Thus, the mom and dad take a different perspective. Thus, perhaps, without combined support from both parents, the outcome could be not as strong in support for the child than were both parents to be united in the effort.

This is an actor, not a doctor or scientist, just an actor. She is nothing important so why is all this media coverage necessary.Let's hope it is not wasted and the young people can see what drugs and alcohol does to a person. I am so tired of hearing how talented she is and what a great family she had.They stink and she is a victim of bad parenting, privilege, and feeling she can do anything she wants. Stop covering these stupid actors who do nothing for this world and are so narcisistic and self absorbed. She is not worth the words.
