If only Liza Minnelli HAD intervened…
Lindsay Lohan might have actually listened and saved herself a sh*tload of trouble!
The incomparable Mz. Minnelli was apparently asked by supposed close friend of Lindsay's, celeb promoter Claus Hjelmbak, to take part in an intervention for the troubled starlet last December, but Liza could not attend because she was out of the country.
A source explains:
"Claus was desperate to do anything to try and save Lindsay’s life. He was so concerned for her well-being because of her continued use of prescription pills and booze. He reached out to Liza Minnelli’s camp, in the hope that she could help. Liza has battled her own demons with alcohol and has been very supportive publicly of Lindsay."
Lindsay allegedly looks up to the screen and stage icon, so perhaps hearing it from the lips of someone she respects — unlike her FATHER Michael Lohan — and who has dealt with addiction issues for much of her life, Lilo might have conceded to seek help.
Unfortunately, Liza was NOT around for the intervention which never ended up happening anyway.
Ah well, here's to hoping that Lindz's upcoming stint in rehab will be the nail in her substance abuse coffin, and that she'll embrace sobriety once and for all.
Otherwise we can't help but fear the worst!
