It's official: Lindsay Lohan is back in rehab. Her lawyer says she's checked in, but, because apparently nothing can be simple in Lohan's life, it's not clear the judge will actually accept the placement. Prosecutors need to sign off on the facility and didn't have time to investigate it and do so, so the judge gave them until next Friday to make a decision. Until then, the judge said, Lohan should stay at the facility, the AP reports. Oh, and this could be a problem: The facility's license has been revoked, TMZ reports.

Lohan was supposed to check in to a New York facility, but got upset when she learned it has a no-smoking policy, TMZ reports. That's apparently what prompted her to switch to the as-yet-unapproved California facility, although making things even more complicated, there was also a Florida facility in the mix at one point. And—what else would you expect—she missed her first flight to California and was very late for her second, last-minute flight, according to E!. But she ended up there, though father of the century Michael Lohan tells Radar she was "crying hysterically" as she was boarding her plane because she wanted to go to the aforementioned Florida facility instead.
