Lindsay Lohan Admits to Drug Use, Bulimia
January 4, 2006

Lindsay Lohan was rushed to a Miami hospital late Monday with what her people are calling an asthma attack that caused a broken blood vessel in the star's neck. Now, some are questioning whether it was too much partying that landed the teen queen in the emergency room.

"Extra" spotted Lohan New Year's weekend, strutting her stuff outside her Delano Hotel bungalow shortly before spending a wild New Year's Eve weekend with her mom in tow at Prive.

Lohan's latest drama comes on the heels of one of her most intimate interviews ever, in which she attempts to shed her party girl alter-ego. Lindsay is raw and uncensored as she goes on the record with Vanity Fair about everything from her battle with an eating disorder to admitting she's done drugs.

"She was completely skin and bones," said Vanity Fair's Evgenia Peretz. "She does admit to having done drugs."

In the February issue of Vanity Fair, which hits newsstands Tuesday, the young actress also reveals a wild story about being abducted by her own father. "Lindsay's father has always been a problematic person in her life," Peretz said. "When she was 3 years old, he kidnapped her."

The 19-year-old actress told Vanity Fair that the emotional lyrics and graphic scenes in her new video, "Confessions of a Broken Heart," were inspired by her tumultuous relationship with her dad, who is currently serving time behind bars for a well-publicized DUI.

"The message of the song is, ‘Why weren't you there for me, did you ever love me?'" Peretz told us.

But Lindsay did feel the love from an unexpected place when her secret struggle with bulimia became frighteningly apparent to her friends at "Saturday Night Live." "Lorne Michaels and Tina Fey said, ‘You need to take care of yourself or you're going to die,'" Peretz related. "That's when she decided, ‘I have got to do something about this.'"

And she did, seeking help from her mother and sister, which quickly got her back on track. "Right now she is filming a movie called ‘Bobby,'" Peretz said. "It's star studded with Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone and Demi Moore."
