Per that Pitbull lyric, Lindsay Lohan is locked up like, uh, Lindsay Lohan, serving her 90-day rehab sentence at the Betty Ford Center.
News has been pretty quiet from the inside—we can only hope this is because she’s actually recovering, not causing drama—but that hasn’t stopped some shady figures from emerging on the periphery.
Take this character for instance: a figured that calls himself David Joseph, “DJ” for short, who claims to be Lindsay’s former drug dealer.
Hopefully you haven’t gotten tired of hearing about every substance Lindsay’s tried yet, because that’s what we’re about to tell you here. DJ speaks out to Star magazine and reveals the troubled star’s past love for cocaine and Molly, saying she always “ordered blow and pills” before hitting up the Hollywood club scene with friends.
It all started in 2009. Lindsay would text DJ to meet her at a Beverly Hills address or the Chateau Marmont, Hollywood Roosevelt, or W hotel. He since quit dealing last year, but in that period of time he says he made roughly $10,000 to $15,000 off of Lindsay’s habit.
His conscience eventually began to weigh on him and he distanced himself from dealing to her. He’d respond “wrong number” to her text messages because he “feared she would do a line of coke after some pills and then be dead.”
It’s a very real fear for DJ who allegedly claims that he had dealt cocaine to Whitney Houston just hours before her death in February 2012. “I had dealt to her, but it was actually the prescription meds that caused Whitney’s death, and I worried Lindsay would go down the same path.”
Lindsay’s current path can be found navigating the halls of Betty Ford and DJ believes that if she takes advantage of this sixth opportunity in rehab, she can change.
“Lindsay has to want to stop,” he said. “She needs to change her friends and lifestyle and be responsible.”
