Lindsay Lohan was photographed guzzling Raw Organic Kombucha Botanic No 3 Tea during her 10-hour hair appointment in Beverly Hills yesterday, and everybody’s all concerned because the tea might not be court-sanctioned. TMZ says
Lindsay was pounding Kombucha — a fermented tea that claims several health benefits [including] “restoring healthy balance to the body.”
Due to the fermentation, the tea contains a trace amount of alcohol (0.5%).
BFD, except it might be part of Lindsay’s master plan to drink on the sly by providing a legitimate beverage scapegoat when the SCRAM device goes off. Us Magazine says
Being shackled with an alcohol-monitoring anklet doesn’t mean Lindsay Lohan won’t try to tipple.
A source says the actress, 23, claimed she [used] a paperclip to jam the signal [and] “put tea tree oil on to fool it.”
Says a Pasadena Recovery Center [counselor], “Addicts will use anything with alcohol to set it off, so they can say, ‘Oh, I wasn’t drinking. It’s my perfume!’”
Or, “Oh, I wasn’t drinking — it’s just my organic Chinese cleansing tea! Of which my consumption has been widely documented! By numerous paparazzi agencies not affiliated with my legal defense!” And if that doesn’t work, she can always claim it was her Bartles & Jaymes bath beads and Bacardi Black body splash.
