Lindsay Lohan’s face looks super bloated. This is just not good. The puffed up lips, the chins, the ratty weave. She doesn’t look as bad in the pic below, but maybe I’m just distracted by the beadwork.
Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina took the last JFK t0 LAX flight last night after being warned Lindsay would be a “wanted woman” if she she didn’t show up in court this morning. Her broke ass flew first class on American Airlines.
TMZ said Lindsay had no intention of showing up to her case about lying-to-cops about that car accident she got in and she had a doctor’s note which was filed with the court, saying she couldn’t fly because she had an upper respiratory infection. But TMZ posted pictures of Lindsay shopping and smoking in SoHo the same day she got the doctor’s note. TMZ says:
We’re told Lindsay went into a panic after we posted our story Tuesday and started calling everyone to find out if we were right … that the judge would probably issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn’t show. Our Lindsay sources say she was pleading with Shawn Holley – the lawyer she fired — to come back on the case, saying she didn’t like her replacement — New York lawyer Mark Heller.
Holley made it clear days ago … she’s off the case, so it’s now up to Heller, who clearly started off on the wrong foot by submitting the doctor’s note, along with a New York Post article saying a lot of people in NYC had the flu.
The lawyer Heller got to sponsor him has never met him and the judge could deny him the right to represent Lindsay.
So Lindsay could be lawyerless … and you know what they say about a client who reps herself …
TMZ will be livestreaming the action in court beginning at 8:30 AM.
Shawn Holley pleaded “not guilty” on Lindsay Lohan‘s behalf today in court even though Lindsay technically fired her yesterday (and didn’t seem to realize it until it was too late). The lawyer she hired in NY sent off a letter firing Shawn, but the NY lawyer can’t even practice in California so Lindsay would have been up shit’s creek if Shawn hadn’t agreed to step in today. TMZ says:
When the judge asked if she was still representing Lindsay — Shawn replied, “At this point, yes” … but it’s unclear what that means since she got a letter saying she was fired yesterday. Lindsay has since hired another lawyer in New York, Mark Heller.
Shawn promised Lindsay’s representation would be cleared up. Lindsay could have had a bench warrant issued against her if Shawn hadn’t agreed to represent her today. A pretrial date has been scheduled for January 30th and Lindsay has been ordered to appear.
I just don’t understand what Lindsay Lohan is doing (although who does)! According to TMZ, Lindsay was about to avoid jail time if she accepted a deal to check into “lockdown rehab” for 6 months, but Lindsay fired her lawyer, Shawn Holley, the lady who has kept her out of jail thus far, literally as Shawn was on the way to the courthouse to seal the deal.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the Santa Monica City Attorney — who is prosecuting Lindsay for allegedly lying to cops after her June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway — was willing keep Lindsay out of jail, PROVIDED she agree to check into “lockdown rehab” for 6 months.
Sources say … Shawn Holley – the lawyer who has kept Lindsay out of jail — was on her way to court Monday to meet with the prosecutor and the judge to hash out the deal. What’s more, Lindsay also faces jail time for a probation violation in the jewelry heist case because she allegedly lied to cops after the crash. We’re told the judge could have agreed to end both cases if Lindsay checked into rehab.
But Shawn never made it to court, because Lindsay signed her walking papers and hired a New York lawyer who was suspended in the ’90s from practicing law for 5 years.
Oh dear. Self-sabotage at its best. There’s a hearing at 8:30 AM PT today and Shawn will probably appear because she’s still counsel of record so a deal may still be hammered out, but if I were Shawn, I would be like :
I love how I barely know Max’s last name. As far as I’m concerned, it’s “from The Wanted.” TMZ says Max George took Lindsay Lohan home to meet his parents in the U.K. and it wasn’t a hot mess. I guess she forgave him for that whole groupie comment.
Lindsay and Max have been (unofficially) seeing each other since that fateful night in November — when she allegedly punched a fortune teller at an NYC nightclub — but this week, they took their relationship to the next level.
Lindsay’s been partying it up recently in London – as we reported – and sources close to the actress tell us, Max invited her out to his parents’ house in Manchester while she was in the area.
We’re told Lindsay and Max have been in constant contact since the last Wanted concert Lindsay attended last month (in the U.S.) — and Max was adamant about her meeting his family.
As of now, we’re told Lindsay and Max are NOT officially GF and BF — just friends who enjoy each other’s company … and probably bang each other a lot.
I guess this is what UK boybander types do. Take girls to the UK to meet their parents. It seems like just yesterday when we were getting the shots of Taylor strolling through quaint English villages. At least Max and Lindsay seem “real” – or as real as “friends with benefits” can be!
We actually say this at work all the time so I can’t be too harsh on Lindsay Lohan for telling her co-star to “Do your fucking job!” However, Lindsay was supposedly difficult on the set, showing up late and fighting with her co-workers. For a movie I’ve never seen, nor plan to see, I’ve certainly heard plenty about what went into the making of it! From TMZ:
TMZ has obtained an audio recording from the set of “The Canyons” … in which a pissed off Lindsay Lohan tears into her co-star during a rehearsal … saying, “Do your f**king job!!!”
Sources tell us … the audio was recorded on the 3rd day of production, while Lohan was working on a scene with the male lead in the movie, porn star-turned-actor James Deen.
During the rehearsal, the director can be heard instructing Lohan and Deen to walk through a scene and “take it all the way to the kiss … ’cause that’s certainly going to be important.”
But then something happens that causes Lindsay to lose her cool:
Lindsay: “No, can you do it … Please James, say your line as you’re walking over … cause we’re doing rehearsal … do your f*cking job.”[James tries to respond]
Lindsay (cutting James off): “I didn’t say anything, I said just walk over … and do your f**king job.”
Director: “Alright, I’ve had it … I’m tired.”Lindsay: “So have I.”
Dina Lohan gave a shocking account to the New York Daily News about ex-husband, Michael Lohan’s abuse when Lindsay was a baby and ET has published the photos that show Dina sporting a black eye. Dina also claims Michael raped her on several occasions. It’s just a horrible story and while it doesn’t excuse Lindsay’s behavior, it doesn’t sound like a great environment to grow up in either. The account is full of he said, she said but the photo above says a lot:
“Michael beat the hell out of me,” Dina said, of the 1986 incident memorialized in a family snapshot of the young mother holding her baby girl — Lindsay — while sporting a huge purple bruise under her right eye.
“When Lindsay saw the photo, she was furious,” said Dina. “She said, ‘Tell the world! Talk about it!’ ”
According to Dina, Lindsay was affected by all that she saw as a child — and she’s not to blame for her faltering career or oddball antics.
“She saw a lot of crazy stuff. I want the world to know the root of her problems,” said the mother of four.
Dina said she got the bruise during a night out with Michael while baby Lindsay stayed home.
They dined at an upscale restaurant in Cold Spring Harbor, and as the night progressed, so did Michael’s drinking and coke-snorting, Dina said.
“When we left he was drunk-driving and suddenly he started screaming, ‘Get the f— out of the car!’ ” she recalled.
That’s when her ex-husband punched her in the face with his clenched fist, bruising her cheek below the right eye, she claimed.
Dina called her parents, who brought her to a Long Island hospital. Medical records show that Dina was treated for “blunt trauma” to the face on Dec. 4, 1986.
Michael recalled the 1986 incident very differently.
“I came in at 2 o’clock in the morning after being out with some friends. I walked in and she hit me with an ice tray. With the back of my hand I slapped her in the face. Yes, it did happen in 1986. Were there any charges? No, not at all. I had a big black and blue on my neck from her,” he told The News.
Dina claims that was the first of several assaults that occurred until her husband, a Wall Street broker, was jailed in 1987 for 90 days on a securities fraud charge.
Dina said she didn’t press charges after the assault because he was already headed for the slammer.
But almost as soon as they married, Michael’s darker side emerged, she claimed.
“Michael was addicted to cocaine, like most stockbrokers back then. He had a lot of bad stuff going on,” Dina said.
By 1990, Michael Lohan was out of jail but facing more charges related to insider trading, and Dina was living with her children in her parents’ home. The two were estranged, with Michael allegedly partying with models almost every night. Dina said her strong Catholic beliefs prevented her from getting a divorce.
Those beliefs helped her survive what she said was a rape by her husband on Feb. 14, 1990.
She said she was at her parents’ home with her kids on that day. Michael Lohan showed up in a limo.
“He was out of jail and on another coke-fueled night,” said Dina.
According to her, Michael tried to convince her to take him back.
“He said, ‘I love you and I want to be with you,’ but then it went dark. It went dark really quick,” said Dina.
She said Michael Lohan raped her as her children slept.
“[They] were sleeping, and I just knew I had to stay quiet — I don’t want to wake them,” she said.
When her parents came home later, they insisted Dina go to the hospital.
According to Nassau County Hospital medical records, Dina did go to the ER to report a rape. She was examined by doctors and her clothes and other evidence was gathered in a rape kit.
Notes on the report indicate doctors called the police and also a coalition for abused women.
Dina never pressed charges, she said, because once again, her husband was already on his way to jail.
This time it was a more serious charge — tied to insider trading — and he did three years before getting released.
Michael called Dina’s version of events revisionist history, insisting that their sex was consensual.
He said Dina invited him to her parents’ house personally and took the lead with their intercourse in a first-floor bedroom.
“How can you rape a person when they’re on top of you?” he asked.
They were separated at the time, Michael explained, and he was dating another woman.
He said Dina claimed rape in a jealous fit after she called him later that night and heard he was with the girlfriend.
“I went over to her parents’ house and made love to her,” he said Sunday. “When I left and she called me, she found out I was with (the girlfriend) and called police. Then she called me the next day, crying. I said, ‘Let’s work this out.’ And I got back with Dina. There were no charges.”
“Lindsay saw all the beatings and all the abuse. She said, ‘Stay, mommy, don’t leave,’ ” said Dina.
Recently, Dina said, her adult daughter expressed regret for those words.
“She said, ‘I’m so sorry for making you stay.’ But I didn’t stay for Lindsay — I wanted all my kids to be happy,” said Dina.
According to Dina, the abuse is why she got an order of protection against him in 1987, one of several she would get over the next 12 years.
“Like many victims of domestic violence and rape, I was embarrassed and afraid. I was very young . . . I thought I could keep fixing him,” Dina said.
She said she came forward now to “set the record straight. I need to make the world aware that Lindsay is messed up because her father is messed up.”
Michael said he believes Dina is seeking cover from criticism of her own parenting decisions.
“She’s bringing this up now because she’s drinking and partying with Lindsay. And she keeps robbing Lindsay,” he said, claiming that his actress daughter is his ex-wife’s main source of income. “She is the devil.”
Lindsay Lohan said she was staying in for New Years, but then some prince from Brunei waved some cash in her face and she put on her party dress and off she went to London with her mom. When she was spotted in London, a few sites were making jokes about her stalking the guy from The Wanted, but I knew that couldn’t be right because he was in NYC. But now it all makes sense. From the NY Post:
Now we know why Lindsay Lohan broke her promise to stay in for a quiet New Year’s Eve and instead — with her mom in tow — went partying in London. Cold hard cash.
She collected at least $100,000 to celebrate with Brunei’s Haji Abdul Azim. Known worldwide as Prince Azim, he throws some of the wildest, most lavish bashes ever, topped off with gift bags stuffed with expensive party favors like iPads and jewelry dripping with diamonds.
Lohan, who claimed to be planning a dinner at home on Monday night, had the party on her schedule for a while, says an insider.
“Prince Azim not only flew her out; he put her up in a beautiful suite in the Dorchester for the weekend and following the party. Her mom, Dina, is also in London with her at the hotel and attended the party,” says the source.
Azim, son of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, is third in line to throne of the small, Southeast Asian nation.
The insider tells us the 30-year-old, celebrity-obsessed prince also paid Lionel Ritchie a whopping $250,000 to come sing for him and Pamela Anderson, a favorite, to come show herself off for $75,000 at the crazy bash, which he holds annually in the 10,300-square-foot ballroom at the five-star Dorchester in Mayfair. Azim’s sister, the gorgeous Princess Fadzilah, also buddied up to Lohan at the party.
“He rents the ballroom and does this for his amusement,” says our source. “He rents the ballroom and pays stars to show up. Lindsay went because she’s that desperate for a paycheck.”
In June, Azim threw himself a massive 30th birthday bash at the Dorchester. That time, he flew in his celeb flavors of the month, including Mariah Carey, Chace Crawford, Raquel Welch, Marisa Tomei and Dionne Warwick, who performed a few songs. In 2009, the billionaire prince’s holiday gathering was proclaimed party of the year by the British press.
Lohan’s father, Michael, told Confidenti@l that he didn’t think his daughter’s appearance for money was a good idea: “Now she’s getting paid for dates?”
