Lindsay's Future Step-Mom Was Her Assistant; Survivor Producer Arrested After Wife Found Dead

  • Michael Lohan won’t have to introduce Lindsay Lohan to his fiancée Kate Major — Back in 2007 she was Lindsay’s assistant/close friend. Kate even picked Lindsay up from rehab, but Linds dropped her when she started getting close to Michael.
  • A source explains, “Kate was really close with Lindsay when she was in rehab at Cirque Lodge in 2007. Kate drove her back to Los Angeles from Utah and was the one that brought in the first-person post-rehab interview for In Touch. They hung out and partied a lot together after that. But Lindsay stopped returning her calls when Kate started getting closer to Michael Lohan.” Kate Major responded, “I have been good friends with Lindsay and I did do things like drive her around and make hair appointments for her, but I was never paid to be her assistant. Lindsay and I did not stop talking because I got close with Michael, what happened was I moved to New York and we grew apart.” [Popeater]
  • Another source says Lindsay Lohan has been partying non-stop and her friends and family are trying to convince her to go back to rehab. “Everyone that is close to her is urging her to get help.

Essentially, there is nothing anyone can do as Lindsay can’t be forced to go to rehab, even though it’s exactly what she needs,” says the friend. [Radar]
