Lindsay Lohan In NY To See Grandma — Before She May Have To Go To Jail! Exclusive!

LiLo is on a break from her LA legal case, flying off to hit the Big Apple. And an insider tells exclusively that the troubled actress headed back home for very personal reasons!

Lindsay Lohan hit NYC this week as she tries to figure out whether to take a plea deal in her jewelry-theft case or fight the charges at trial. And now we know why she left California. She wants to visit her grandma!
Lindsay, 24, doesn’t know when she will have the next chance to see Nana Sullivan, 87, so she is making sure she stops in on her before her next court date, March 25 –which could be the day she heads off to jail.

“She has a grandma that’s very old — and she doesn’t know what’s going to happen with court — so she wants to see her,” the source tells

Whether Lindsay goes straight to jail or decides to battle it out at trial and fight the necklace-theft accusation, “either way it’s unclear when the next trip home will be.”

In LA, her circle of friends has dwindled as her troubles have grown — and her career has been sidetracked.

“Who was she out with for the Oscars?” the insider says. “She went with her brother!”

So back in NY, she’s making time to see family and friends — stepping out in her skinny jeans and black cowboy boots and hanging with high-school pals.
