LOS ANGELES (AP) – Lindsay Lohan’s attorney said Thursday the actress checked into a Southern California rehab facility that a state official said is unlicensed to perform the type of treatment a judge required her to receive.
Mark Jay Heller told a judge that Lohan was settling in at Morningside Recovery, a treatment facility in Newport Beach.
But hours later, Millicent Tidwell, acting deputy director of licensing and certification for the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, said Morningside did not have the appropriate licenses to provide residential treatment or recovery programs.

Talib Kweli, “Prisoner of Conscious” (Javotti Media/Caroline Distribution)
Throughout his career, whether in his early collaborative work with fellow Brooklynite Mos Def in Black Star or with the Cincinnati producer-rapper Hi-Tek, Talib Kweli consistently combined his conscious approach to writing with a verbal dexterity marked by a dazzling rapid-fire delivery.
His fifth solo album, “Prisoner of Conscious,” is being billed as a departure of sorts because of the inclusion of tracks like “High Life,” a collaboration with the Sierra Leone artist Bajah and rapper Rubix Cube that celebrates the music style of one of Kweli’s heroes, the late Nigerian singer-activist Fela Kuti.
George Jones, fittingly, is going out in style. When funeral services for the legendary country singer are held on Thursday, May 2, at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, a former first lady, a current governor and a host of music luminaries will all be in attendance.
