Apparently Charlie Sheen's $100,000 was not enough: The IRS has seized Lindsay Lohan's bank accounts so that it can collect all the back taxes she owes it, TMZ reports. She owes at least $233,904 for 2009 and 2010, plus more for 2011, according to the gossip site. Couple that with her recent assault arrest and other legal problems, and LiLo has not been having a very happy holiday season: Radar reports that she is seriously "freaked out" about the fact that she may be in jail over Christmas and New Year's. She could spend as many as 63 days in the slammer if her lawyer can't get her off on her latest California charges, a source says.

"If Lindsay could sell a body part to keep her out of jail, she would. She is that desperate about the thought of going back to jail," the source adds. As for that assault arrest, Lohan continues to insist the whole thing was a setup and has hired a private investigator to look into the background of Tiffany Mitchell, the psychic accusing LiLo of punching her, TMZ reports. She also continues to insist she doesn't need rehab, despite the fact that she's reportedly drinking two liters of vodka per day, sources tell the gossip site. As for Mitchell, she has hired Gloria Allred to represent her. (More Lindsay Lohan stories.)
