Lindsay Lohan needs someone to pay $50,000 rehab bill




Our obligatory Lindsay Lohan follow-up finds that even though she miraculously dodged the jailtime bullet once again, she needs some help to fulfill her sentence to even more rehab, 'cause girl is stone broke. At least, she is after spending all that money on booze and drugs.

PopEater's Rob Shuter says Lindsay is so strapped, she needs a sponsor to foot the bill at the Betty Ford Clinic, where she's been ordered to stay until Jan. 3: "Lindsay can't afford to pay for treatment," a friend told Shuter. "Three months at the facility will cost her almost $50,000, which she doesn't have." What, doesn't mama/manager Dina have anything lying around? But don't think getting 50 Gs is gonna be easy.

"There is simply no money left," another source adds. "Lindsay manages to live high off the generosity of others; however, asking for free clothes and dinners at fancy restaurants is one thing, asking for $50,000 cash is something totally different. Her people tried and failed to sell her first post rehab interview for big bucks, so her only option now is to find some sort of sponsor."

Maybe Bill Gates can help out; his charity digs giving cash to lost causes. We would say Warren Buffett, but he doesn't like shelling out for losing investments.
