Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan has laughed off reports suggesting she has been harming herself to deal with depression.
The 23-year-old star sparked health concerns after being spotted with a red scratch on her inner arm earlier this month.
But the singer has slammed the claims, insisting she is in a "wonderful place mentally, physically and spiritually."
"I've had that scar on my arm for a very long time now - it's funny it's just being noticed," the Daily Star quoted her as telling gossip website PerezHilton.com.
"I had surgery a while ago for an injury I had when I was younger, nothing having to do with depression or anything of the sort. Now back off, people! There are more important world issues to focus on!" she added.
