Lindsay leaves rehab

Despite denials earlier in the week, Lindsay Lohan has checked out of the exclusive Cirque Lodge Treatment Center in Utah, where she has been since August. Multiple sources, including her parents, have confirmed the news. "She's finished the program," one source says. "Lindsay is done, but she may come back for outpatient treatment. She overextended her stay because she wanted to. She could have been out a while ago, but she chose to stay." Lohan's mother said yesterday, "I'm proud of her. She's moving ahead with her life. Things were getting out of control. She took action. She took responsibility. She really needed to heal." Lohan was photographed on Friday afternoon with her father Michael, who carried her suitcases, leaving Cirque Lodge. "I will be there in her life as best I can but from here on she's going to have a lot of decisions to make on her own," Michael said yesterday. "Now that she is going out into the world, I can only hope for the best." Lohan is already gearing up for her return to work - a source says she has plans to start filming her tango-themed flick Dare to Love Me in LA beginning October 15. Despite reports suggesting she is an insurance liability for film studios, Lohan has been insured for this film. "Lindsay will start her life over," says a source. "She's gotten rid of the people around her who were bad influences."
