Lindsay Lohan experienced a “miracle” transformation in prison and has vowed to leave her wildchild past behind for good, according to the movie star’s father Michael.

The Mean Girls actress was released from jail in California on Monday after serving just 13 days of a 90-day sentence for violating her probation relating to a 2007 DUI arrest.

She was immediately spirited away to a rehab center as part of the conditions of her release – and Michael Lohan is adamant his troubled daughter has changed during her time behind bars.

He tells an Australian radio station, “I thought prison would be a horrible thing but I have to say an absolute miracle took place with regard to Lindsay turning her life around. It was a spiritual awakening for her and I hope it continues in rehab.”

He adds, “She’s 80 per cent of the way to where she has to be. She’s got to go to rehab, take a step back from everything, and say, ‘I’ve got to find myself again’.”
