INMATES at the U.S. jail where Lindsay Lohan is serving a 90-day sentence reportedly chanted threats and hammered on their cells in protest at “preferential treatment” the Hollywood star receives from guards.
British newspaper the Daily Mirror reported today that Lohan, 24, was crying in her cell and making bizarre demands of prison guards, including requests for ice cream.
Inmates had reportedly refused to leave their cells for recreation or meals in protest at the special treatment offered to Lohan by guards at Lynwood Prison in Los Angeles.
“Wardens are being easy on Lindsay. She has her own cell and doesn’t have to mix with other inmates,” a prison source said. “She is crying and talking to wardens and keeping others awake. Her preferential treatment is causing a lot of resentment.”
Lohan is serving a 90-day sentence for breaking probation terms imposed by a U.S. court for two drink-driving offences.
Lohan is expected to serve as little as 14 days due to overcrowding at the prison.
Entertainment website TMZ reported today that friends of the disgraced “Mean Girls” star were planning a rally outside the jail in an effort to get her released early.
The protesters are also demanding Lohan be allowed time to rest between her jail term and a 90-day stint in a rehabilitation center.
Lohan is due to check into rehab no later than 24 hours after she is released from jail.
