PETA offers to help cash-strapped Lindsay pay for her rehab treatmentBy ANI

LONDON - Officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have offered to sponsor cash-strapped Lindsay Lohan’s rehab treatment.
The help, however, comes with a condition - if the actress eats a vegan diet for the remainder of her stay.
The ‘Mean Girls’ star has been in and out of jail and rehab this year and is currently serving a three-month stint at California’s Betty Ford Clinic after failing two court-ordered drug tests.
Lohan’s recent probation report stated the actress fears she will be unable to pay the 35,333 pounds fees for her rehab stay because she ‘can not afford’ it.
PETA executives have promised to give her 6,667 pounds if she remains a vegetarian for a year afterwards.
“Lindsay Lohan is the most visible example of a real addict, and if she can conquer her addiction to meat and cheese, absolutely anyone can. If she does, she’ll not only save animals but save her own health, and she’ll be an example to the millions of people who watch her every step,” the Daily Star quoted PETA president, Ingrid Newkirk, as telling Los Angeles Times.
