Sir Elton John offered some sage advice to troubled star Lindsay Lohan on Monday night. While on the red carpet for his AIDS Foundation fundraiser in Manhattan he told reporters that Lohan needs to ask for help and "get rid of the people who are around you, by that I mean her family too," the star added.

He said that Lindsay needs to go to a boot camp rehab setting to get well not somewhere where she will be pampered. Good work Elton John, someone needs to talk some sense into her!

Lindsay is currently out on parole and doing a stint in the Betty Ford rehab clinic for substance abuse. After failing two drug tests in September the actress is due in court later this week  for her probation violation hearing.
