Tabloid reports that Lindsay Lohan would be taken from a Lynwood jail to a rehabilitation facility in Costa Mesa owned by Newport Beach-based Morningside Recovery proved untrue this morning when the troubled actress was instead taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
It was unclear whether the troubled actress would later be transferred to a rehab in Orange County.
Lohan, 24, was freed from the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood at 1:35 a.m. after serving 14 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case, a sheriff's spokesman said.
She was then required to directly enter rehab for three months. The actress was ordered to receive treatment at UCLA Medical Center in Westwood.
Judge Marsha Revel apparently had a change of heart after first picking Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach against the wishes of two court-appointed psychiatrists and medical professionals.
Lohan's attorney Shawn Chapman Holley visited her at the Lynwood jail Friday. She said Lohan was doing fine and was looking forward to her release.
