Lindsay Lohan appeared to announce that she is expecting her first child on Monday but many are questioning whether the tweet is part of an April Fool's Day hoax.
The troubled actress took to social networking site Twitter on April 1st where she posted a cryptic tweet to her five million followers. Most did not believe her.
"Its official. Pregnant...," Lohan tweeted April 1st which is widely celebrated as a day when people play practical jokes on each other.
Weary fans voiced their skepticism in a series of tweets responding to the unexpected announcement.
"Delayed #AprilFools?? RT @lindsaylohan: Its official. Pregnant... ," Nick Parker tweeted.
"@lindsaylohan terrible joke. Get your ---- together girl," Nicole Byer tweeted.
""@lindsaylohan: Its official. Pregnant..." Please tell me it's still April 1st wherever you are," Heather Clouse.
The tweet comes days after the 26-year-old "Mean Girls" star was ordered to return to rehab for 90 days as part of a plea deal relating to charges stemming from a car accident in June. Lohan has been photographed partying non-stop in Brazil in recent days making her tweet even more bizarre.
Lohan is currently in Brazil for a $100,000 gig requiring her to promote a clothing line and one particular troubling photograph has caused concern among family members.
In the photo the former child star can be seen attending a launch party for the clothing line and she is seated on a filthy nightclub floor looking seemingly out of it with her dress pulled up above her waist. The "Liz and Dick" star has a history of drug and alcohol abuse.
"Lindsay's life is out of control. She's living at friends' places, not working and has no-one good standing by her," her father Michael told NOW magazine.
"I won't stop shouting for my daughter to get help. If you want to save her life, put her in rehab now. If she doesn't go, the consequences are unthinkable," he added.
