Lohan Locked Rehab: Enters Morningside Recovery Center in California

Lindsay Lohan has checked into Morningside Recovery Center in Newport, California on Thursday morning.

The Mean Girls actress was originally slated to enter Seafield Center rehab facility in Westhampton Beach, New York. It was the treatment center that prosecutors had agreed upon. However, as of last night, the star had a change of heart.

"It is indeed going to be a very tight arrival," a source told E! "She's really left it to the last minute and it's just nuts."

Lohan's alteration to her treatment plan could have violated the terms of her plea agreement. Reportedly, prosecutors had not agreed to the change. Furthermore, no one from Lohan's camp contacted prosecutors prior to her decision. She risked 90 days in jail.

Santa Monica City Attorney Terry White said that he learned about Lohan's plans through the media.  He also raised questions about the effectiveness of the treatment center. In 2012, Morningside's license was suspended. There were allegations of negligence and nine families sued the facility.  An official for the state even called the rehab center a threat to the health and safety of the public.

However, Judge Jim Dabney said the rehab center was acceptable. He gave prosecutors a week to prove otherwise and Lohan can remain at the treatment center.

Lohan's father said that rehab would be a difficult time for her.

Michael Lohan told RadarOnline that his daughter called him crying. She was upset over entering the rehab facility.

"Lindsay is heading to California but she doesn't want to go to the place she's going and she's upset that she's being forced to do so," he said.

The elder Lohan shared that his daughter had another facility in mind. He said she wanted to enter Lukens Institute which is located in Florida. Michael recommended it to her.

"She's going to go to Morningside in Newport Beach until she can transfer to the one in Florida," he said.

Michael said that he would make the transfer happen.

"She asked me if she could transfer to Lukens once she starts and I told her of course she can," Michael said. "I will get it all settled for her."
