Three newly released jailbirds tell HollywoodLife.com that Lindsay Lohan IS getting preferential treatment at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. – including cell phone use and clean underpants!
Apparently Lindsay Lohan’s celebrity status IS good for something in the slammer – or so say three recently released inmates who are FURIOUS that the starlet has received VIP treatment in jail!
“The whole jail was on lockdown every time Lindsay moved or talked to anyone, including her lawyer and family, forcing [the rest of us] to eat in our cells,” one former inmate (who declined to be named) told HollywoodLife.com exclusively outside of the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood, Calif. July 28.
“She received clean underwear when no [other inmate] did. She was given fresh pairs while [other inmates] have them for at least a week before [we got] a fresh pair.”
As for other preferential treatment, the girl said, “The one hour Lindsay was allowed out, she was given a cell phone to use – which [no other inmate] was allowed; our phones were confiscated. While she was on the phone she was crying the whole time, even thought she also says she’s getting out [of jail] next week. She’s a crybaby.” Her two pals agreed, nodding.
The 24-year-old “crybaby” also received a special visitor in jail this Wednesday – her Inferno co-star Jason Dottley, who brought her the classic book “The Old Man and the Sea” as a present.
Although it definitely looks like Lindsay’s celebrity status has paid off, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Steve Whitmore still maintains she isn’t receiving VIP treatment. “My statement remains the same,” he told us. “She’s NOT receiving preferential treatment. It’s business as usual.”
Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley, agrees, telling HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “That is not true!” She added, “She is not getting special treatment. She was tearful on her first day, but since then she is handling.” She tells us a rehab facility has not been selected at this time.
