Lindsay Lohan hasn't had any real work, besides Machete, in quite some time now.
But now we hear Lilo is being urged against getting back to work, and is being advised to "put her career on the backburner for the next 9-12 months, at least, so she can focus on getting control over her disease," according to a source.
"Lindsay has been told that she needs intensive inpatient rehab for at least nine months. The last thing Lindsay should be doing right now is working", the source said. "What is abundantly clear to everyone is that the last thing Lindsay should be doing right now is work. Lindsay wants to work, and is resisting the idea of not working. She knows she needs help, but she has contractual obligations, and she needs the money," the source told RadarOnline.
But apparently Lindsay isn't even taking this latest setback seriously, and is already focusing on her next project, Inferno.
"Lindsay wants and plans on beginning filming as planned, even though she has been advised to seek intensive treatment, which would consist of inpatient rehab treatment for at least nine months. Lindsay needs to get help, period.
"She has to focus on her disease and begin the recovery process. She needs to get out of Hollywood, and away from the people that enable her," the insider says.
We couldn't agree more! But this is where her new manager Larry Rudolph needs to take control. We wouldn't mind seeing her really go away for a little while.
