Has it been three months already?
Though we heard that her official, yay-freedom release time was supposed to be at the crack of midnight, the actress was photographed leaving Cliffside Malibu at around 6 p.m. She was spotted smoking a cigarette outside the facility before she hopped into an SUV and was driven away.
She spent about a month and a half at Cliffside after starting her treatment process at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage in the wee hours of May 3.
She transferred because, as a source put it to E! News at the time, "she wanted a change."
There is a court hearing pertaining to her case scheduled for Wednesday at 8:30 a.m., but Lohan was not required to be there unless there was an issue with her probation.
A source tells us that she had a goodbye dinner earlier and she may be staying the night at a private residence.
Lindsay's rep has not yet returned a request for comment.
