Lindsay Lohan Hawking Rehab Photo-Shoot?

Celebuzz / October 4, 2010

Who says that crime doesn’t pay? Certainly not Lindsay Lohan, who’s reportedly planning to turn her most recent rehab stay into a lucrative opportunity via a staged photo-shoot. 

According to PopEater, Lohan—who’s currently doing a stint at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, after violating her probation by testing positive on at least one court-mandated drug test—is looking to document her recovery via photographs that she will then hawk to media outlets in an effort to replenish her depleted coffers.

A friend of LiLo’s spills,

“Lindsay hasn’t worked in so long that the only way she makes money now is from selling photographs. She can make an easy $30,000 to $40,000 a pop for a few hours work. However pictures of her in rehab getting better could sell for as much as $100,000.”

This wouldn’t be the first time that Lohan has turned the healing process into a cash-generating endeavor: Back in 2007, the occasional actress posed for photos while doing yoga and reading self-help books at Utah’s Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah, with the photos eventually ending up in OK! Magazine. Perhaps Lohan should have spent less time posing and more time concentrating on her recovery that time around—she might not have found herself with the need to replicate the experience now.
