Rumors fly as Lindsay Lohan supposedly found unconscious in L.A. hotel

Lindsay Lohan’s back in the news, and trending again on Twitter. As usual it’s for all the wrong reasons.

The troubled starlet, who has been working on filming an Elizabeth Taylor biopic called “Liz & Dick,” was found unresponsive in a Los Angeles hotel room, KABC news reported. The station initially reported she had been rushed to the hospital, then rescinded that detail.

Her representatives then issued a statement to media outlets including Entertainment Weekly, explaining that Lohan was merely overtaxed due to a demanding work schedule and suffering from the twin ailments that frequently seem to vex certain entertainers: dehydration and exhaustion.

Here it is:

“Lindsay worked a grueling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 p.m. and worked through the night until 8 a.m. this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene. Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration. Lindsay was never taken to a hospital; reports to the contrary are false. She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon.”

So, as you were.

Indeed Lawrence…… That’s going to keep money in her pocket more than the crappy films she’s hired/fired for….

I will be found uncoscious after a week long of hard work at the office. I hope to make it on Entertainment Weekly but I won’t hold my breath. Big f*ing deal!!! Let’s focus on getting this country back to being the #1 country in the world before China, Russia, India takes over. The “dummy”nization of America.

Exhaustion? Let her come work a 12 hour night shift in ICU with me. Dehydrated? I am sure they provide water for her. Again, exhaustion? Give me a break.

I bet she’s training for the Ironman Competition and pushed herself too hard. Maybe she needs to call Lance Armstrong and he can hook her up. Livestrong…

Hey, TOO BAD She DIDN’T: it still might happen yet, and I am not trying to make light of this. She is indeed a young women crying out for help. At this rate, she will be dead by the time she is 30.

I am just so sick of hearing about her and her antics. This is a woman that is a drug addict, drinker, and has many more issues. She thinks that she is above everybody. It is a shame that she cannot wake up, look in the mirror and realize that she looks like walking death. She is old looking, worn out, and is complete denial…just like her parents. Its a horrible thing to look back at her movies when she was a little girl and see what she has turned out to be. Wonder how long before we hear that she is dead. Somebody better get this girl help…and quick.

you people are all mean if everyone would just leave her alone or at least be a good influance on her she is trying to get it together do you really think that she gnjoys the fact that the only way she can get hired is with special arangements in her contracts or being watched constantly or being chased just to see if something bad will happen so that some stalkers can take her pics. or say she did something bad that doent sound like a very fun life no matter how much you make. sad,sad,sad

Most people in recovery relapse multiple times before finally getting clean for good.
For all her troubles gleefully reported by the entertainment media and tabloid press, this girl has yet to really hit rock bottom.
It might take her getting broke, unable to find work and sleeping on the street before she sees the light and shakes the monkey of addiction off her back. If she lives that long…

“what a waste of looks and talent!!!” I don’t wish ill on anyone unless they’ve truly earned it. However in this case she needs a Robert Downey Jr. level crash and burn. If she doesn’t come back from it, there’s lots of hardworking actors to ably take her place. If you live your life responsibly, I have empathy for your hardships. If you throw it away in the pursuit of “fame” and fun, too bad…

I think she jes’ be a needin’ a good meal at the Fulton Ind. Blvd. Waffle House (any of ‘em). The truckers down that a way would set her up with a big ol’ plate o fried pork products. And maybe give ‘er a lift to Meridian, Mississipi…YEE-HAW!!!!!

WOW…..Dehydration and exhaustion is really the best they could come up with. That is the most lame excuse in Hollywood. I know parents working 2 jobs and going to school who have never been in the hospital for exhaustion. Where I come from if u tired, u take a dam nap

Denise, that’s the best run on sentence I’ve read since 7th grade. Great comments everyone. Funny stuff. I’ll leave it be. As Waylon Jennings said, “She’s road hard and put away wet.” Actually just read some moron comments which is to be expected on the ajc. If you made a good comment you know who you are. So What… best comment of the night.

Lilo was likely still coked up and hung over from some hard partying the night before—pretty standard for her.

9pm- 8 am… perhaps they should take some endurance classes from medical staff. i mean, whens the last time you heard of one of them passing out from dehydration and exhaustion…. and somehow, i bet their jobs are more harsh.

Not to be mean but there are literally hundreds of people in worse shape and suffering crueler circumstances right under our noses than this trainwreck of the week. I don’t feel sorry for this hollywhore at all other than she has crummy friends. “Oh No! Lilo may have OD’d! Someone call 911! How’s my makeup?”

If she’s still alive in 2 years, I’ll eat my hat. Like so many other Hollywood and musician types, she just seems to have a death wish. She may be young, but she’s been circling the drain now since she was 18 and legally an adult. It’s only a matter of time, and which drug she will have ingested along with her vodka breakfast.

Ok, she’s 25, so I understand Frito giving her 2 years max. But yes, there is obviously something to it with certain “stars”. It’s like they hit 27 and they push themselves to the edge harder and more frequently just to see if their “greatness” and legend will be validated. Unfortunately, they are never above ground and amongst the living to be present once fate shows up and it is.

Unresponsive after a 12 hour day? Wow, they think she’s gonna get any sympathy from working America that pull those days hundreds of times a year? She just needs a hot dose or to go away forever. I hate wishing bad on anyone, but these Hollywood personalities being mainstays in the news create an awful persona for America, provide the worst kind of examples for kids, and get paid millions for drinking, drugs, cussing, sex, and just being stupid idiots. They’re all ised up an not desirable to anyone except trash anyways. I’m a 28 year old guy, so not a 65 year old woman’s opinion here.

Unresponsive because she is shooting up heroin.

Leave Lindsey alone. You don’t know her. Sure she smokes meth but she’s also an angel and a gentle soul who will be next to Jesus in heaven someday up in the clouds. Why are you so judgmental? You look down on someone who smokes meth. Do you hate Negroes because they smoke crack? I didn’t think so. You just hate them for who they are and their heavy melanin concentrations.

Jennifer, call me babe.

Hey AJC, why are comments always allowed on insignificant, trashy items like this, but never on political or crime stories that might actually affect Atlantans’ lives?
