Lindsay Lohan may be unable to afford court's psychologist

July 21, 2011 |  1:04 pm

Lindsay Lohan has not worked enough on the silver screen recently to be eligible for actor's health insurance and may not be able to pay for court-order psychological counseling, her attorney told a judge Thursday.

Shawn Holley provided that explanation Thursday for the actress' failure so far to comply with Judge Stephanie Sautner.

Melanie Chavira, the prosecutor at the Los Angeles city attorney's office who is overseeing Lohan's necklace theft case, questioned whether the actress really couldn't afford to pay.

Sautner, who is overseeing Lohan's probation for shoplifting a necklace, said that was no excuse. She gave Lohan 21 days to find a counselor or her probation would be revoked.

"Maybe she knows somebody who can help out," Sautner said.

Lohan in recent months has appeared in numerous photo shoots but has been absent from TV and movies.

Lohan, who came to court in a designer clothes and $1,195 Christian Louboutin platform heels, is living in a house in Venice Beach.
