Lindsay Lohan is desperate to spend time with her family before she enters rehab.
The troubled actress – who is expected to be released from jail on either August 1 or 2 – is upset at the idea of going to the court-ordered rehabilitation centre immediately after her release from prison, and her lawyer is asking the judge to alter her ruling.
Judge Marsha Revel sentenced Lindsay to 90 days in prison, followed by 90 days in rehab, for violating the terms of her probation for her 2007 driving under the influence (DUI) charge. She also ordered the 24-year-old actress to enter the rehabilitation centre within 24 hours of leaving prison.
Her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley explained: "She’s a little upset right now. She'd like to spend some time with her family, and there’s at least some question as to whether or not she’ll have to go directly to rehab.
"I think it would only be fair for her to spend some time with her family and that’s what she’d like for me to emphasise to the judge.”
Lindsay entered prison on July 20 and has had a difficult time inside since her sentence began.
Earlier this week, it was reported the actress has been moved into isolation after breaking down in her cell at the Century Regional Correctional Facility in Lynwood, California.
Former inmate Cheryl Presser, who was released from the prison on Friday, said: "Lindsay would lie there shivering all night, crying and covering her face with her hands. Her wailing was keeping everyone awake... She had a hysterical fit, crying and yelling, so she got put in isolation."
Lindsay has been visited by her mother Dina and sister Ali twice, but has barred her estranged father Michael from seeing her wile she is incarcerated.
