Lindsay Lohan is staying the course. Not the behavioral one advised by the law, according to some, but most definitely the geographical one mapped out by The Wanted's tour manager. 

Lohan will not be showing up for a court date Wednesday in Los Angeles pertaining to her summer car accident, instead opting to jet overseas with the five new men in her life, sources confirm to E! News.

To be clear, Lohan is not going to get in trouble for not attending the 8:30 a.m. hearing. She is not required to appear because the charges pending against her are misdemeanors and attorney Shawn Holley will be there to represent her.

Lohan is facing counts of willingly resisting, obstructing, or delaying an officer in the course of their duties; providing false information to an officer; and reckless driving stemming from the aftermath of her June 8 smashup on Malibu's Pacific Coast Highway.

But, for now, it's off to London and then Dubai with rumored love interest Max George and his boy-band mates within the next 24 hours, a source says.

Lohan saw them open for Justin Bieber at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 28 -- most notably because she was arrested late that night for allegedly smacking a woman in the face in a dispute having to do with George -- and then resurfaced for the first time after the bust backstage at Jingle Ball in Philadelphia, where The Wanted performed.

She then hung out with the group during Jingle Ball shows in Boston and again in New York on Friday. No word on whether Lohan's favorite tune to sing along to is "All Time Low."
