Scoop: Why did LiLo relapse after stint in rehab?

After claiming that jail and rehab were a life-changing wake-up call, why did Lindsay Lohan return to her old ways? Though she may have thrown away her last chance to salvage her career by failing two drug tests, which violated her probation, a friend said she’s only using drugs because she’s “bored.”

“When she first got out of rehab, she took it seriously. She didn’t want to do drugs or get back into that lifestyle,” a friend told Fox411.com. “But then, she had all these people around her who were doing drugs in front of her, and that’s when she slipped.”

“A few weeks ago, I saw Lindsay out, and she was in a weird state of mind,” the pal said. “It was terrible. She wasn’t her fresh self like when she first got out of rehab. It was like she didn’t care anymore.”

TMZ reported that the “Machete” star failed two tests — one for cocaine and one for amphetamines. She’ll appear in court Friday, when a judge will decide whether she goes back to jail. If she does, her upcoming “Inferno” shoot could very well be jeopardized — and with it her chances of ever being insured for a movie again.

After admitting that she failed a test, LiLo tweeted, “Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away overnight. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day.”

But, her friend said, “Lindsay does drugs because she’s bored. The only reason she’s fessing up about her drug use on Twitter now is because she knows that she has ‘friends’ that will sell her out. People have seen her doing the drugs.”

Clearly, Lindsay needs to take responsibility for her own actions. Yet, these so-called “friends” sure aren’t doing her any favors.

Forgiving for Gettys

Balthazar Getty is opening up about his affair with Sienna Miller — and, surprisingly, so is his wife. After the “Brothers and Sisters” star had a dalliance with the blond starlet, he returned to Rosetta, the mother of his four children, and she forgave him.

“Here’s the bottom line: It was a very challenging time for everybody involved, but I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work,” the actor told Harper’s Bazaar magazine. “Rosetta is understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try. In a way … I feel like we’re better than we’ve ever been.”

“I’m open to talking about it because I believe we go through things in a public way to help other people get through it. I’d love to talk about it more with people when I’m clearer about it,” said Rosetta, who’s been married to Balthazar for 10 years. “I’m going to have to explain this to my daughters one day. I chose not to act from ego because I just felt like it would be too crushing for my children.”

Well, that’s big of her. We’re not sure we could get past seeing those pics of Balthazar groping a topless Sienna, but that’s just us.

Paris the Prisoner?

Paris Hilton may have avoided jail with her recent plea deal to a cocaine-possession charge, but she did just find herself in a form of confinement after flying to Japan.

After the judge handed down a sentence of probation, the heiress hopped a plane overseas to fulfill a long-standing promotional obligation — but was detained at her hotel by immigration authorities, who bar people with recent drug convictions from entering the country.

Oh, the humanity! Imagine — trapped in her hotel! Hasn’t Paris suffered enough?
