Lindsay Lohan Cutting? I Have My Doubts


I am always doubtful of cutting stories. One of the things about this site and reading your comments is that you learn things about subjects you don't really know a lot about. Cutting is something I really didn't know much about except for what I saw on television or something. It was only when I wrote a couple of posts about it and celebrities that I learned more.

So, when I see Radar with this post up about how one of Lindsay's friends says Lindsay is still cutting and using the above picture as proof, I have my doubts. Did Lindsay cut in the past? Apparently so, but as much as she is photographed with and without clothes I think all of us would notice if she were cutting herself again. The mark to me looks like she had something digging into it for awhile like a purse strap or Dina's nails when the cocaine was poured out on the table. It doesn't really look like a cut or a scar.

Of course the "friend" could just be Michael trying to make a buck or two. Why? Because for a Lindsay Lohan story there seems to be a lot of taking shots at Dina. Who else cares about her or the lousy job she does as a parent.

that looks like 2 things to me---one a scar, and the other something fresher. i have no idea what they're from.

maybe she nodded off and burned herself with a hot crack pipe.

(j/k....sorta)

It pretty well-documented that Lindsay has the stage-parents from hell.With her mother too busy shelling shoes & her dad selling audiotapes of Lindsay; its no wonder that she is a mess. Look at her role models.

Cutting is supposed to be a way to eliminate anxiety or emotional problems. I don't get it, but this girl has plenty of both. She looks awful. Her lips are almost blue.

... not that I EVEN "care" about *L. WH0REhan*... but Ent L. must be BLIND... there are CLEARLY two "scars" on *WH0REhan's* arms - one on the right arm over the "fresh one" and one above *her* tatt on the "left". Get an "Em"age viewing program like Irfanviewer (on Windoze) or the Gimp ('Nix or Mac)... zoom 200% or more and you will "see" *them*...

once i burned myself taking some delicious pizza out of the oven. the scar looked just like that but it was closer to my hand.

now, let's talk about that double chin...

jax said...

i got a same scar working at Mcdicks as a teen from the mcnugget fryer. longest 3 months of my life.

I have sometimes scratched myself in my sleep and gotten marks like that. I don't, however, at three times Lindsay's age, have her frown lines, dissipation or fish lips. What is wrong with this girl?

lutefisk said...

someone please buy her a good bra.

Sporky said...

Wow...just...wow.

I'm by no means an expert, but I thought that serious cutters aimed for places nobody could see -- like the backs of thighs and stuff.

As always, everything she does is for attention.

Syko - how much time you got? *L*

The mark looks like a burn mark to me. I don't know where she would have gotten it. Maybe she finally realised that her acting career is over and took a job at McDicks?

selenakyle said...

That looks more like a burn or a scrape, not a cut.

I cut before and it wasn't with something blunt or dull, like this appears to have been caused by.

Unknown said...

It's hard to tell, but it looks like a burn rather than a cut to me. Maybe a curling iron mishap? Doubtful. Frankly, the weirdly pink fish lips have me way more concerned. Someone needs to tell that girl that white/pink lipstick was never in style and definitely won't be ever on her.

You got it. What a waste of space. Ugh.

cut or no cut on her arm, i am 99% sure that jeff conaway landed on her face

@ballyhoo, yes, let's talk about the double chin--it's what I was most interested in.

On a serious note, with her history of drug abuse and inability to be a functionally independent person, I wouldn’t be surprised to find out she cuts. She’s hasn’t seemed to be mentally stable since maybe Mean Girls (and that's a nice estimate).

tallulah b said...

It doesn't look like a cut to me either. The old scar looks just a burn you get from an oven. Still, LiLo could indeed be a cutter.

I cut myself a couple of times to alliviate the pain when I was in an abusive relationship a lot of years ago. I still have a scar on the inside of my left wrist. When I made it I just wanted som of the emotional pain to go away, so I didn't think about the scarring.

Now I have a young daughter, andI worry about what to say when she notices the scar.

JeninRVA said...

As a former cutter (still got several deep scars that people ask about. ugh.), I can say that there is definitely a degree of, "Someone please notice and help me! I want you to be concerned and care, even though I'm going to deny it and lie. Even better if I can make you feel guilty for making me feel bad enough to do this!" Most of my cuts (via razor blade) were fairly visible, I think the idea that the cuts are "hidden" is actually a misconception about cutting. BTW (since I'm sharing and all) my cutting came with a side of alcoholism and eating disorders, so it's been a grand old time over the years.

That being said, this looks like a very superficial cut/scrape and not really a "sincere" self mutilation cut. *true* self mutiltators tend to go a bit deeper and be more .... umm ... aggressive with it. The girl is obviously tring to get attention and I think WANTS people to care/be concerned/get in her business about it.

I'm sick of people being like "oh but her parents!!" Boo fucking hoo. We all have problems, we all have bad experiences, and there are MILLIONS of people who have FAR worse lives than her. Many of whom have become, oh I don't know ... productive, well adjusted adults. *gasp!* For me personally, she has run out of chances and excuses.

JeninRVA said...

Apparently I'm feeling punchy today ...

I remember seeing a picture of Lindsey on the beach in a bikini during a photo shoot last month. She had what looked like a grotesque scar on her thigh. The scar was photo shopped off of the end picture. Idk if that was from cutting herself but it didn't look like it got there naturally. Anyhoo...whether she is cutting herself up or not the girl needs some help asap. It is hard to feel bad for her with all of her attention seeking shananigans & what not but still she is human.

JeninRVA, I agree about the parents. Granted, she's got some doozies, but a lot of us do and we still manage to survive and become self-sufficient, contributing adults. By the time you are 23, it becomes more about your own choices and less about what a douche your dad is or what a fame-ho your mom is.

selenakyle said...

I always (used to) cut the tops of my hands--very visible places. And always with a razor blade that was *ahem* around for other *ahem* reasons. But that was years ago and thank Jah I have a high resistance to tetanus ;)

What I noticed about Lilo in the bikini shots last month were lots of bruises. Like from maybe falling, stumbling, etc. while effed-up, or more likely from rough or kinda-rough sex.

I mean, I myself occasionally get bruises from my usually-gentle hubby (and not complaining one bit, either!).

RocketQueen said...

I agree about the bra - Lohan - just steal one if you have to.

I've definitely read articles before about her cutting - in fact I think one of her "parents" confirmed it's been a problem recently.

Bwahahaha!

I'd read before that she was a cutter, but who knows....I'd probably cut myself too if I had her awful parents.

mg said...

She was photographed a few years ago at the World Music awards with self-mutilation like injuries on her wrist.

There are degrees of self-injury. And some "cutters" are more into burning, picking, or just about anything. So I don't think it's fair to say she is or she isn't just because she isn't walking around with giant wounds.

jax said...

LOL@DJ

MLissa14 said...

I am pretty sure that cutting is pretty far down on the list of destructive behavior that this mess does to herself.

JeninRVA said...

@ MG - that is a good point that there are degrees and differences. Hell, not only between different people who do this but within the same person's realm of activity as well.

Anonymous said...

there were pictures of her a few weeks ago with scars in other places. http://tinyurl.com/y8g4mya

people have been talking about her cutting for a while now. who knows though.

audrey said...

As a mom of a daughter who is a cutter, I did some research on the internet of web sites she used to frequent. Boy did I get an education. Lots of teens cut, and they hide it by wearing long sleeves usually pulled over their hands, tons and tons of bracelets and wrist bands. Some don't give a flying eff about it and wear their scars openly. Lindsay ususally has a ton of wrist decorations--so it wouldn't come as a shock to discover that she is a cutter.

Moonmaid said...

My dad was an abusive alcoholic and my mom was an enabler who stayed with him 6 years too long. They split when I was 9. At 22 I was not a drug addict or a cutter or a sex addict or a thief. This girl needs to grow up.

Miss X said...

I've been told that there are 2 reasons people cut: because they don't feel anything or because they are in so much emotional pain.

I was #2 for a while...if I could hurt myself physically it took my mind off my emotional pain.

Either way, I hope Lindsay isn't struggling that much. But she probably is.

Radar Online is Michael Lohan's sole source of income, so it's highly likely the story is from him. I no longer will click over there because they are associated with ML, and enabling him to live parasitically off his daughter's life.
