Lindsay Lohan has once again made it into the news. The party girl was arrested after allegedly hitting a woman in a New York nightclub. Lindsay was arrested at 4:am and charged with third degree assault. She apparently got into a verbal fight with another woman at a Manhattan Club and ended the spat by hitting the woman in the face. At least the woman was not physically hurt.
This incident is only one of several scraps with the law. Two months ago she claimed she was allegedly assaulted her in a New York Hotel but the charges were dropped. That same month Lindsay was charged with clipping a man with her car outside yet another New York hotel. This time the police decided not to pursue the case.
Back in the month of May she allegedly struck a manager of a hotel with her car. An investigation is still under way for the time she allegedly sent one of her assistants to the hospital during one of her out of control moments.
By October the police were again called to the Mother’s home because of a fight she was having with her mother. There were no criminal charges.
Lindsay Lohan is still on probation because of the stolen jewelry incident. If she is arrested she can face a jail term.
What will happen to her acting career is she is arrested? Despite her out of control behavior she is doing quite well with her career.
“Her latest film, “Liz & Dick,” in which she portrays screen icon Elizabeth Taylor, premiered on Lifetime on Sunday. Lohan also recently filmed “The Canyons,” an indie film written by “Less Than Zero” and “American Psycho” author Bret Easton Ellis.”
Yet she continues to display out of control behavior. Out of control behavior is not new to the celebrity scene; Britney Spears, Charlie Sheen and many other followed that path.
What causes this out of control behavior?
No doubt the celebrity life appears to be glamorous on the outside but on the inside the pressure is sometimes too hard to control. Many of the celebrities may possibly have a mood disorder such as bipolar disorder, formerly known as a manic depression mood disorder. When it is good it is very good for these celebrities. They are on top of the world getting all their commitments met. They are stars and they shine above everyone else. But when the manic phase of the disorder is over and the depression sets in everything goes downhill.
“Under stress, they can lose control, say awful things, and even become dangerous –to themselves or others.” “Those with bipolar disorder often describe their experience as being on an emotional roller coaster. Cycling up and down between strong emotions can keep a person from having anything approaching a “normal” life. The emotions, thoughts and behavior of a person with bipolar disorder are often experienced as beyond one’s control.”
