PETA Would Pay Lindsay Lohan if She Turns Vegan

'She'll be an example to the millions of people who watch her every step,' the organization president said about the actress who is battling her alcohol addiction in rehab.

Officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have offered to help cash-strapped pay for her rehab treatment if she eats a vegan diet for the remainder of her stay. The "" star has been in and out of jail and rehab this year and is currently serving a three-month stint at California's Betty Ford Clinic after failing two court-ordered drug tests.

Lohan's recent probation report stated the actress fears she will be unable to pay the $53,000 fees for her rehab stay because she "can not afford" it. PETA executives have now reached out to Lohan and offered a solution to her financial problem - they will give her $10,000 if she cuts animal products from her diet until she is released from rehab in January.

They have also promised her another $10,000 if she remains a vegan for a year afterwards. PETA President Ingrid Newkirk tells the Los Angeles Times, "Lindsay Lohan is the most visible example of a real addict, and if she can conquer her addiction to meat and cheese, absolutely anyone can. If she does, she'll not only save animals but save her own health, and she'll be an example to the millions of people who watch her every step."
