LOS ANGELES: Troubled US starlet Lindsay Lohan admitted Friday she failed a drugs test, meaning she may be ordered back to jail a month after she was freed on bail.
The 24-year-old stressed that drug addition was a disease which she hopes to overcome, but acknowledged that she was a "work in progress."
"Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test," she said on her Twitter feed, apparently confirming reports on the TMZ celebrity news website and People Magazine online which said she failed the test last week.
The failure would be a breach of her bail conditions, which could require her to return to jail for 30 days, the news outlets said.
Lohan said she was prepared to appear in court if required next week.
"This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I'm prepared to face the consequences" she wrote on the microblogging site.
"Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn't go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it."
And she added: “I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard, and taking positive steps .. but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else.
"I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful....Thank you all!!!" she wrote.
