The Mean Girls star has been on her best behaviour in recent months as she fulfils her community service hours and attends therapy sessions relating to her 2011 conviction for a probation violation.
Her final progress hearing is set for next Thursday (29Mar12) and Lohan is determined to reach the date without further controversy following allegations she was involved in a hit-and-run incident outside a Hollywood nightclub last week (14Mar12).
The actress has dismissed the accusations as “false” and “absurd”, and her mum admits she’s since told Lindsay to stay indoors to ensure her last few days on probation remain drama free – because Dina’s convinced the paparazzi are out to cause trouble.
In a phone interview with U.S. talk show host Wendy Williams on Thursday morning (22Mar12), Dina Lohan says, “I said (to Lindsay) do not leave the house!
“She’s coming down the home stretch and the paparazzi is just stalking her right now and trying to do anything, crash her car, just trying to hurt her before her court date on the 29th and we just wanna put this behind us. So I said, ‘Live in a bubble for the next two weeks and everything’s over…’ and she’ll be free and clear to live her life.”
Lindsay Lohan has already lined up work to get her career back on track and is due to portray a young Dame Elizabeth Taylor in upcoming TV biopic Liz and Dick, about the late Hollywood legend’s love affair with Richard Burton.
And Dina is delighted her daughter has landed such a major comeback project.
She adds, “It’s an incredible, incredible role for her.”
Los Angeles police are reportedly interested in talking to Lohan about the alleged hit-and-run, in which she’s accused of bumping into a pedestrian, to determine whether a criminal investigation should be pursued.
