That's right, LiLo is besties with Tom Arnold! Rehab buddies!
Sources close to the situation reveal that both stars are currently resting up at the Betty Ford Center (Tom's in for abusing prescription pills) and have been building a beneficial and comforting friendship. The source explains:
"She is feeling a bit lonely and wants to hear from her friends. She can only have a few select visitors. [Mother] Dina is going to visit her on Sunday…Tom Arnold has been really nice to Lindsay. He's been trying to make friends with her."
Calls us skeptical, but we're just a tad concerned that Tom is just adding his name to list of people who are going to use their association of Lindsay for their own personal gain. Would anybody be surprised if Tom gave an in-depth interview to Access Hollywood once he is released about his time spent with LiLo? Anyone?
But we don't want to think that way. Perhaps they really are getting chummy, or as chummy as two people can get in group sessions. (We hear men and women are pretty "segregated" at the joint.)
Still, we're glad to hear Lindsay is opening up to someone!
