PROVO, Utah, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Actress Lindsay Lohan is "very focused" on her recovery at a Utah rehabilitation facility, a former patient and pal says.
Former Cirque Lodge Treatment Center patient Tony Allen, who Lohan was rumored to have been romantically linked to during her stay, said the "Mean Girls" actress is determined not to disappoint her many supporters again, People magazine reported Friday. This is her third stab at rehab this year following multiple run-ins with the law that allegedly involved alcohol or drugs.
"There's no cycle of guilt or shame anymore," Allen said. "She wants to give back to her fans and the people that care about her, and she wants to be able to share her many talents. She's very focused on recovery right now."
Speaking about his rumored dalliance with the 21-year-old, Allen denied having any romantic contact with Lohan while they were both patients at Cirque Lodge.
"That is against the rules," Allen said. "She is my friend."
People said those rumors began after Lohan and Allen were repeatedly seen whitewater rafting and canoeing together while staying at the Utah facility.
