LINDSAY Lohan has confirmed that she is not pregnant following an April Fool’s joke that sparked an internet frenzy.
A tweet from her official account containing the fake news was sent at 7.35am UK time, just days after she was seen slumped under a table at a Brazilian nightclub.
It simply read: “It’s official. Pregnant.”
The message was posted to Li-Lo’s 5.7million followers on 1 April at around 10.30pm PST (Pacific Standard Time), suggesting the actress could be playing a late April Fool’s Day joke or that her account had been hacked.
The posting was re-tweeted by more than 10,000 users and became a worldwide trending topic
However Lindsay has now confirmed that the message was in fact an April Fool’s joke.
She wrote on Twitter: “April Fools. Where’s everyone’s sense of humor?”
Lindsay, 26, has been dating City Of The Sun guitarist Avi Snow for the past few weeks.
Last Wednesday the troubled star was whisked to Brazil and paid ?60,000 to open a new fashion store in Sao Paolo.
The trip came shortly after dodging yet another jail stint during a court appearance.
The actress will instead spend 90 days in a lock-down rehab clinic where she will reportedly be treated for alcohol and prescription drug addiction.
But she has reportedly refused any rehab that will not supply her with her favoured prescription drug Adderall.
The proceedings are over claims she lied to police about a car crash on the Pacific Coast Highway in June last year.
She told cops at the time that her assistant was driving the car, but later admitted to being behind the wheel herself.
She is already on probation over a jewellery theft case in 2011, making a lenient sentence highly unlikely.
Lindsay has been linked with a few men over the past year but her last serious relationship was with Mark Ronson’s DJ sister Samantha.
