LOS ANGELES – It's no secret that stars get a lot of freebies, but it seems a complimentary cruise into rehab isn't one of them.
According to Star Magazine,Tara Reid's recent romp into Malibu's Promises Treatment Center (which also housed other troubled Tinseltowners Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears) was given to her for free and that unlike all other patients, the "American Pie" starlet's bags were not searched.
But as it turns out, Miss Reid really does have to pay for her Malibu stay which is a rumored $1600 per night.
"Promises is committed to keeping the identity of clients private to the best of our ability and Promises does not comments on its fees," a rep from the rehabilitation facility told Tarts. "All client belongings are searched, as are all incoming packages. Rooms are subject to search at random and all clients are treated the same and expected to follow the same set of rules with no exceptions."
The treatment facility's rep also said that the suggestion that Promises would search Hollywood for a celebrity who needs rehab in an effort to garner publicity is libelous, offensive and without any basis in reality and are demanding the magazine print a retraction before further action is taken.
Reid checked into Promises on December 9 but declined to announce publicly what she was being treated for.
A rep for Reid also confirmed that the actress is certainly not receiving free or special treatment on her road to recovery.
