Despite promises to friends that she’s “getting her life together,” 24-year-old actress Lindsay Lohan failed a court-mandated drug test last week. Sources close to the actress told TMZ that she tested positive for cocaine. “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result,” Lohan tweeted late Friday night. “Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future. ”
