Lindsay Lohan is “appalled” by the Vanity Fair article released last week in which she confessed to dabbling in drugs and battling bulimia.
The Vanity Fair story, which hit newsstands nationally Tuesday and was widely reported last week, made headlines for the 19-year-old actress’ acknowledgment that she dabbled in drugs “a little.”
The magazine also quoted Lohan on her drastic weight loss last year: “I was making myself sick,” she said. The article, written by Evgenia Peretz, noted Lohan was “referring to bulimic episodes.”
Lohan also said, “I knew I had a problem and I couldn’t admit it.”
However, in a statement released Tuesday to Teen People magazine, Lohan denied having bulimia and said, “The words that I gave to the writer for Vanity Fair were misused and misconstrued, and I’m appalled with the way it was done.”
An editor for Teen People said Lohan’s denial was regarding Vanity Fair’s reporting of her alleged bulimia, not drug use.
“Aside from [the writer’s] lies and changing of my words, I am blessed to have this job and wonderful family that I do,” Lohan’s statement read.
Vanity Fair, in a statement of its own, stood by its story.
“Evgenia Peretz is one of our most reliable reporters,” the magazine said. “Every word Lindsay Lohan told her is on tape. Vanity Fair stands by the story.”
A call to Lohan’s publicist, Leslie Sloane Zelnick, was not immediately returned Tuesday.
