Lindsay Lohan may be extending her stay in rehab. She was due to come out of the facility on Wednesday but wants to stay in a transitional house for a few extra days. Lohan was spotted by Daily Mail photographers leaving the Cliffside Malibu Rehab Center in California on Tuesday (30th July).

Sources close to the actress have said she has requested to spend another three-four days in another facility. The reason for this is because she feels she needs a transition period before leaving. After numerous attempts by the 27-year-old actress to clean up her act after each rehab stint, maybe these extra few days will ensure she sticks to her intended lifestyle in future. 

The source, speaking to TMZ, said she liked to stay at a "lower level, sober living house". Another source, speaking to the same website, also commented on the severity of her addiction prior to entering rehab. They said "it's like invasion of the body snatchers" and that "she's a different person" when under the influence.

Lohan's latest rehab stay was due to a 90 day court order. This resulted from a guilty plea bargain made after Lohan lied in court about a car crash. Her behaviour has been erratic since 2007, since then she has been arrested countless times; served jail time and faced dozens of charges. 

Lohan has decided to return to New York now she is out of rehab. A source close to her has said the actress is concerned about the possible situations she may find herself in.
