Lohan’s mother says actress will move East

New York — Lindsay Lohan’s mom says the actress will be moving away from California and back to New York after she gets out of drug rehabilitation.

Dina Lohan, during an often tense interview with NBC “Today” show co-host Matt Lauer on Friday, said her daughter was doing “wonderfully” after 14 days in jail and lashed out at California Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel, who put the actress there.

“She’s great,” Lohan said. “She’s been through a lot. The judge played hardball. Lindsay was in with alleged murderers and she’s become friends with a lot of them. Lindsay rolled with the punches and she’s doing wonderfully.”

Lindsay Lohan served 14 days of a 90-day jail sentence for violating her probation in a 2007 drug case. She was sent to a UCLA drug rehab facility for a court-mandated three-month treatment, and her mother said she’d be out soon.

Rapper Juvenile pleads guilty in drug case

Chalmette, La. — New Orleans rapper Juvenile has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge in Louisiana.

The St. Bernard Parish sheriff’s office says the 34-year-old, whose real name is Terius Gray, entered the plea Thursday. The rapper and an acquaintance were arrested Feb. 25.

He received a suspended sentence of three months in jail and must serve six months probation and pay a $250 fine and court costs.

Juvenile, best known for the song “Back That Thing Up,” has been arrested at least four times on charges ranging from failure to pay child support to resisting an officer at a Florida mall in 1999. Most of the charges have been dismissed. In 2003, he was sentenced to 75 hours of community service for hitting a man on the head with a champagne bottle.

Foxy Brown indicted for court violation

New York — Rapper Foxy Brown has been indicted on charges of violating an order of protection stemming from a 2007 confrontation with her neighbor in New York City.

Prosecutors say Brown violated the order in July by screaming at neighbor Arlene Raymond before bending over, baring her buttocks at Raymond and showing her underwear while shouting an obscenity.

The 31-year-old Brown was issued the order of protection after pleading guilty in 2008 to menacing Raymond with her cell phone.

The two had been in a dispute over Brown blasting her car stereo outside their Brooklyn building.

The indictment announced Friday charges Brown, whose real name is Inga Marchand, with criminal contempt in the second degree. She could face up to one year in jail.

Publicist says Gabor returns to hospital

Los Angeles — Zsa Zsa Gabor’s publicist says actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has returned to a hospital because of complications in her recuperation from hip-replacement surgery.

Publicist John Blanchette says an ambulance was summoned to Gabor’s home to take her to an emergency room Friday.

Blanchette, who was in touch with Gabor’s husband, Frederic von Anhalt, by telephone, says Gabor was in great pain and was bleeding from the hip.

The 93-year-old Gabor broke her hip in a fall at home on July 17. She underwent hip-replacement surgery at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center and was discharged on Wednesday.
