Scoop: Lindsay Lohan checks into rehab by choice 

Lindsay Lohan has landed in rehab — but it’s by her own choice. Her new attorney, Robert Shapiro, has her in his sober-living facility while he appeals her sentence to serve 90 days in prison followed by rehab. Call it the “I’m doing it because I want to, not because you told me to” defense.

On Wednesday, LiLo entered the Pickford Lofts facility, which Shapiro founded after his own son died from an overdose. She was visited by mom Dina, sister Ali and even ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson.

Lindsay’s new attorney — who famously defended O.J. Simpson — is reportedly seeking to have her jail sentence revoked or reduced, and Shapiro is attempting to show the judge that treatment is a better option.

The troubled starlet is terrified of going to prison, TMZ reported, because she’ll be placed in a solitary cell for her safety.

Mean Mel

The nightmarish Mel Gibson news just keeps on coming. The latest horrific revelation: His outbursts of rage toward Oksana Grigorieva may have gotten their infant daughter caught in the crossfire.

Radar Online reported that Oksana’s attorneys have photos of then-2-month-old Lucia with a bruise on her chin inflicted by her out-of-control father. The Russian musician is seeking to have Mel’s parental rights taken away. 

The report came as the website released yet another audio clip of the “Braveheart” star ranting and spewing vicious expletives at his then-girlfriend. Among the few printable utterances: She calls him mean, and he explodes: “Yeah, you know what mean is now, don’t you? So don’t call me mean when I’m nice to you. Because I’d like to show you what mean really is.”

Meanwhile, as the public recoiled from news of his temper, the embattled Mel was summoned to New York to do reshoots on his upcoming movie, “The Beaver,” in which he talks through a beaver hand puppet. Oddly enough, the flick didn’t test well and needed retooling.

Well, if the revelations about Mel being a monster don’t kill his career, the talking-beaver puppet movie should do the trick.  

Reggie: Sidelined

Is Reggie Bush desperate to win Kim Kardashian back? The New Orleans Saints player and the ubiquitous reality TV star split up for the second and evidently final time in March, and she has moved on with another NFL player: Miles Austin of the Dallas Cowboys.

Now, Life&Style magazine claimed Reggie is trying to, um, intercept the ... oh, we’re not good at football metaphors. Let’s just say he’s trying to get back in her life.

“Reggie realized Kim was the one and said he was finally ready to get married,” a source told the tabloid. “But after months of being single, Kim’s realized Reggie wasn’t the one and now she’s moved on.” 

“Ever since Reggie found out about Miles, he’s been going crazy sending Kim lots of nasty e-mails. She just ignores them,” the source said.

“Kim always intended on staying friends with Reggie,” the insider said, “but now he doesn’t want to let her move on.”
Really? Because he seemed to be having a pretty good time hanging out with model Amber Rose (Kanye West’s ex) at a recent party. We call foul on this story. Hey, was that a football metaphor? No? Rats!
