On Sunday we snapped the first photos of Lindsay Lohan after her release from jail, and the actress went to the Dream Center near downtown LA, which is a church dedicated to serving the needs of inner city folks.
Lindsay was accompanied by mom Dina, manager Lou Taylor, sister Ali and BFF Eilat Anschel, and a source tells X17online exclusively that Linds went into the bathroom and broke down during her tour. The source added, "Lindsay heard stories from people who have had the same problems as her, and she was in tears. It certainly seemed like this was having a positive impact on her."
Lindsay (who was also rocking a brand new SCRAM under her boots) tweeted after her visit, "What a great place. The Dream Center is here in LA... had a nice time there today, it's so important to give back. I feel blessed." Lindsay met with children and families, and she even signed autographs and gave out handbags to some of the young girls.
According to our source, Lindsay's business manager/life coach Lou Taylor is a supporter of the facility and she was the one who helped organize the visit. Lindsay said she wanted to come back and visit the Dream Center, but she made it very clear that she wouldn't be staying there for her own rehabilitation. Though we'd like to believe that this was just Lindsay trying to be a better person, a source close to the visit tells X17online, "She's checking into rehab tomorrow and her manager felt that she needed good press." This is definitely a baby step in the right direction -- hopefully there will be many more to come!
