Lindsay Lohan. What now?

Less than two weeks out of rehab, Lindsay Lohan relapsed shortly before her arrest and is now "receiving medical care," her lawyer said Tuesday.

"Addiction is a terrible and vicious disease," attorney Blair Berk said in a statement.

Since leaving Promises rehab facility on July 13, Lohan has been wearing an electronic alcohol-monitoring bracelet on her ankle. She had it on even as she hit parties and nightclubs in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. However, police say the device did not play any role in notifying police that she was allegedly driving under the influence on Tuesday.

"Throughout this period, I have received timely and accurate reports from the testing companies," says Berk. "Unfortunately, late [Monday] I was informed that Lindsay had relapsed. The bracelet has now been removed. She is safe, out of custody and presently receiving medical care."

The actress, 21, was booked early Tuesday morning for DUI, possession of cocaine, transporting a narcotic into a custody facility and driving on a suspended license, according to Santa Monica police spokesman Lt. Alex Padilla.

Officers smelled alcohol on Lohan's breath when they first arrived on the scene Tuesday. She refused to submit to a preliminary blood alcohol test, so she was arrested and taken to the local police station, added Padilla.

Lohan's attorney posted the $25,000 bail required to have the actress released from jail at approximately 6:30 a.m. Her arraignment was set for Aug. 24.

Reached by PEOPLE, the star's father, Michael Lohan, said he's "heartbroken" by his daughter's arrest.

NEW YORK - Gisele Bundchen tops's list of the world's richest models, earning $33 million in the last 12 months

The Brazilian supermodel strutted past the likes of Kate Moss, who came in at No.2, and Heidi Klum, who placed third on the list.

Bundchen, 26, parted ways with Victoria's Secret in May and will see her lucrative contract with the lingerie brand expire at the end of the year.

Still, she boasts "more contracts than any other model on the planet," said, and has appeared in campaigns for high-end brands including Apple, Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli.

Moss, who recently launched a clothing line at British fashion retailer Topshop, ranks second with $9 million. The 33-year-old fashion icon is the new face of fashion label Stella McCartney and Italian sportswear company Belstaff.

Klum, 34, placed third with $8 million. She is a Victoria's Secret spokesmodel and host of Bravo's "Project Runway."

Two more Victoria's Secret beauties — Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio — rounded out the top five with $6 million each.

They were followed by Carolyn Murphy ($5 million); Natalia Vodianova ($4.5 million); Karolina Kurkova and Daria Werbowy (both $3.5 million); Gemma Ward ($3 million); Liya Kebede ($2.5 million); Hilary Rhoda and Shalom Harlow (both $2 million); and Doutzen Kroes and Jessica Stam (both $1.5 million).

In ranking these catwalkers, said editors also factored in a model's "relevancy" — determined by recent campaigns, fashion magazine covers and opinions of those in the fashion industry — where necessary. The list was posted Monday on the Web site.
