Two weeks after Lindsay Lohan tried to get out of her “Scary Movie 5” cameo by claiming she had walking pneumonia, she was rushed to a New York City emergency room last night after an asthma attack. The “Liz & Dick” actress received medical attention at Mt. Sinai and was discharged a short time later after getting prescribed some antibiotics, according to TMZ. Now resting at her hotel, Lohan is “doing fine,” says her rep.
If Lohan really was truly suffering from walking pneumonia as she claimed, she certainly felt well enough to party. Around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, she was arrested after striking a man with the Porsche she was driving as she arrived at the Dream Hotel. Three days later, Lohan was back on the late-night social scene, but thankfully this time, she was riding in the passenger seat.
Another thing that probably doesn’t help asthma? Smoking. Still, Lohan was photographed doing a lot of it in the two weeks since she said she had walking pneumonia. On September 13, she posted a photo on Twitter with a cigarette in her mouth and another behind her ear. Shortly after, the “Mean Girls” star was seen on the set of “Scary Movie 5” puffing away while walking from her trailer.
Walking pneumonia, hit-and-run … how do you think Lindsay will grab headlines next?
