Lindsay Lohan either made a last-minute April Fool's Day joke or introduced an interesting new plot twist to her tenuous legal troubles by announcing that she is pregnant.
At 2:35 a.m. this morning, Lohan tweeted: “Its official. Pregnant…”
The Huffington Post pointed out that there is a four-hour difference in time zones between Brazil, where Lohan is currently visiting with her boyfriend, Avi Snow, and California, where the actress lives.
Technically, Lohan made the announcement to her west coast fans around 10:30 p.m., well within the boundaries of April Fool’s Day.
But her practical joke has raised concerns because recent reports suggest the troubled actress is destined for jail instead of rehab.
Lohan recently made a plea deal to serve 90 days in rehab in lieu of going to jail for lying to the police while they investigated a car accident in July 2012.
However, Dr. Drew Pinsky of VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew informed TMZ that there aren’t any facilities in the United States that can legally hold a person against her will for more than 72 hours.
Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller assured the courts that he could locate a lockdown facility by the deadline on May 2 but he hasn't made any progress since the bargain was made two weeks ago.
Though Lohan has yet to confirm whether the pregnancy is real or a hoax, one thing is for certain - she has exactly one month to untangle this latest legal snag or else she could be spending time behind bars with a bun in the oven.
