On Twitter, Lindsay Lohan admits failing drug test
Lindsay Lohan apparently took to her Twitter account late Friday night, in the wake of reports she'd failed a court-ordered drug test, to deliver a mea culpa spread over several posts:
Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.
Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps
forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future.
This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences.
I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard,
but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful....Thank you all!!!
Though sources told The Times on Friday that no official results had come from an investigation into whether Lohan had used illicit drugs, TMZ had sources saying the actress had tested positive for cocaine. She is currently on probation after serving time in jail and rehab for violating terms of an earlier probation sentence related to two 2007 DUI incidents.
