The man responsible for beating up Paris Hilton's little brother Barron claims Lindsay Lohan had nothing to do with the altercation and it was all the 24 year-old heir's fault.
Paris Hilton' little brother Barron was attending a party on Friday night (Dec 6th) at a Miami mansion.
Towards the end of the night the 24 year-old heir suffered a brutal attack which resulted in him going to hospital to seek medical treatment.
Initially Barron claimed to the police Lindsay Lohan ordered the beat down due to him talking behind her back.
Lindsay denies having ordered the attack, but it seems there's a new celebrity feud brewing anyway.
Few people are aware that Paris Hilton even has a little brother, let alone that Baron (which is what Paris’ bro is called) has a feud going on with Lindsay Lohan. Well, at least he has an unresolved incident involving Lohan’s bodyguard. TMZ first reported that the younger Hilton sibling was jumped and beaten on Friday. According to sources for the gossip website, on the night of the attack Barron attended a party at a Miami mansion, where Lohan was staying during a local art festival. The conflict reportedly began when several people overheard the Hilton “talking smack” about Lindsay.
Barron claims it was LiLo who ordered the attack.
The reports get muddled from that point onwards, but Barron was attacked and had his nose smashed later that night. A photo obtained by TMZ confirms this version of events. Meanwhile, Lohan is denying not only being behind the attack, but even being present in the house at the time. The video obtained by TMZ does show Lohan talking to Hilton on the night, but she does appear to be getting in a car to drive away.

Lindsay Lohan could sue the makers of Grand Theft Auto V.
Lindsay Lohan is back in the news, although this time it appears it may be her choice. The actress is reportedly planning to sue the makers of Grand Theft Auto V. TMZ is reporting that Lohan is not happy with the game for using her likeness.

Although they don't use her name directly, the gossip site guesses at three different places she may have been seen in GTA V, including "a mission where a Lindsay Lohan look-alike asks the player to take her home and escape the paparazzi" and "at a hotel resembling the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood - a place Lindsay not only frequents but once lived."

Lindsay Lohan is reportedly attempting to begin a legal battle with Rockstar Games as she claims they used her image and likeness for characters on 'Grand Theft Auto V' without permission.
Lindsay Lohan is clutching at straws in her recent claim against the Rockstar game ‘Grand Theft Auto V’.
The 27 year-old is certain the video game stole her likeness for characters featured on the game and claims it was used on three occasions.
TMZ reports, Lohan and her lawyers are currently creating a lawsuit to file which demands Rockstar Games pay the ‘Mean Girls’ actress money for using her image without permission.
One lesson we can all take from these celebrities: once you put it on the internet, it's out there forever.
Despite her Twitter apology, Peaches Geldof is still in hot water for tweeting the names of two mothers, whose babies were involved in abuse by disgraced rock star Ian Watkins. The daughter of Bob Geldof apologized and explained that she had assumed the names were already public knowledge, however she is still under investigation, according to the Daily Mail. The concern was that her tweets could expose the two children, who were granted lifelong anonymity by a court order, after their mothers had allowed Watkins to abuse them.
Peaches apologised profusely for the comment, but these are some tweets that may come back to haunt her.
While information on the case mostly ends here (save for the few tweets by the socialite herself), this isn’t the first time that social media has gotten the better out of a celebrity. Luckily, most of the time some Twitter TMI is only likely to provide some fodder for the gossip websites, rather than have real-world consequences. So with that in mind, let’s lighten the mood a little at take a look at some of the most embarrassing celebrity tweets.
Lohan is being sued for a 2012 car crash she caused and was recently photographed reaching for a bottle of wine. Could the two be connected?
It looks as though Lindsay Lohan may have fallen off the wagon already, after a photo of her reaching for a bottle of wine in a home in the Hollywood Hills emerged online. The photo only shows her with her arm stretched out, looking as though she is going to grab it, with no other incriminating pictures of the night finding their way online. Could this mean her sobriety is over?
The photograph, which was released by TMZ, comes at the same time that news that Lindsay has fired her sobriety coach for good, another ominous sign that Lindsay may have already broken her vow of sobriety. Lohan has since come forward to shoot down these rumours, insisting that her vow of sobriety is more determined than ever before, however the photos do carry an inauspicious feeling. Perhaps Lindsay just needed a sly pick-me-up in the face of her latest legal battle.
The former child star is being taken to court by James Johnson, a civilian who filed a lawsuit against Lohan on Wednesday (23 Oct.) at Los Angeles Superior Court for an incident that occurred in 2012. Johnson is suing Lohan for crashing her Porsche 911 in to the back of his car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica. Johnson also claims that the incident, which took place on 8 June, 2012, happened whilst Lohan was under the influence of either alcohol and drug (or both) and that a bag of pill and a distinct smell of alcohol were both found in her car following the crash.
Whilst Lindsay is busy trying to remain sober, her mother is busy getting wrecked and driving around New York whilst still drunk
Dina Lohan was taken in by cops late on Thursday (12 Sept.) night after they pulled her over for speeding on the Northern State Parkway going through Long Island, NY. According to TMZ, Momma Lohan was going at 77 in a 55 mph zone and was pulled over by a New York State Police cruiser at around 11 pm on Thursday night.
Dina was more than twice over the legal limit
Upon closer inspection, the arresting officer noticed a distinct smell of booze coming from the white BMW and requested that Dina get out of the vehicle almost immediately as she clearly looked intoxicated. The officer then tested her blood-alcohol levels and found that it was at a staggering .20, more than twice the legal limit of .08.
After being on the receiving end of an earful of abuse from 'The Canyons' director Paul Schrader, Lindsay Lohan has explained that she didn't show up at the Venice Film Festival because of health concerns
Lindsay Lohan claims her absence from the Venice Film Festival had nothing to do with being a diva or just being a general pest towards her co-workers, but actually was because of concerns over her health.

The actress admitted in a statement posted to her official website that her "focus is on [her] health and well-being" only at the moment, and she decided to hold on to a promise she made to TV guru Oprah Winfrey not to leave the USA whilst she recovers from her wild past, which included missing out on the Venice Film Festival to promote her new film, The Canyons.
The troubled actress was speaking with the Queen of chat in a recent interview aired Sunday (18 August) night
Lindsay Lohan says that she has finished with her partying days for good, telling Oprah Winfrey that her latest stay in prison and then rehab have knocked the remaining urges to take drugs and drink herself into a stupor out of her. She was speaking with Oprah during an exclusive interview on the OWN network on Sunday (18 August) night, during which time she admitted that she's fed up with her past life and thinks it is now time to grow up and act more responsible.
Lindsay claims that her partying days are well and truly behind her
"I think it was just to find some peace and just have no choice but to just sit and be,” the former child actress told Oprah, in reference to her 2007 stay in jail. She also admitted that as well as wanting to go to prison to remove herself from any toxic environments in her life, the singer was also keen to commit herself to rehab and reckons that her recent 90-day stay in rehab has knocked the last few remaining drops out of her party lifestyle. She claimed that her court-ordered stay in the California rehabilitation centre worked as intended and now she feel ready to begin the next, drug-free chapter of her life.

The rapper couldn't have foreseen the storm he would cause by calling out every other hip-hop artist under the sun. But is he being hated or congratulated?
Big Sean's new track 'Control' was only released on Tuesday but already the rap world is up in arms over guest rapper Kendrick Lamar's 3 minute verse in which he boasts, disses and namechecks other artists in order to make it sound like he's the undisputed big dog.
The Rap World Replies To Lamar.
Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Pusha T, Drake, A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, NaS, Eminem, Andre 3000 and Meek Millz are not even all the names spat out by Lamar as the rapper compares himself to a King, the Pope and Italian writer/politician Machiavelli. He also adds in Lindsay Lohan, Sir Paul McCartney and Sean Connery for good measure, just in case Hollywood or The Beatles' guitarist ever considers encroaching on his self-anointed rap lordship.

'The Canyons,' starring Lindsay Lohan is out now. It might look visually spectacular but does the plot hold up?
The trailer for The Canyons was released at least eight months before the movie release, giving us a tantalising glimpse of the swirling cinematography, melancholic Hollywood glamour and synthy Drive-esque soundtrack of the erotic thriller. Plus, it looked like a solid return to filmmaking for Lindsay Lohan whose public battle to stay sober has consumed the press surrounding her lately.
Have Lindsay Lohan's Personal Struggles Affected Her Ability To Act?
Lohan plays Tara, an actress trying to keep her affair with an actor from her past quiet whilst her privileged and scheming boyfriend Christian (James Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact. The plot goes awry when Christian finds out about Tara's affair and the narrative takes a darker turn, descending into bloody violence and cruel sexual mind games.
Movies that allow us to wallow in a trashy story for a couple of hours can often become a guilty pleasure, and this lurid concoction blends the skills of Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) and Paul Schrader (American Gigolo) for an entertaining story of sexual depravity with Hitchcockian overtones. It's a bit clumsy and corny, but the characters and situations hold our interest simply because we have no idea where it's heading.
In the canyons around Malibu, independently wealthy Christian (Deen) has decided to produce a low-budget slasher movie starring the sexy actor Ryan (Funk), boyfriend of Christian's assistant Gina (Brooks). Christian's girlfriend Tara (Lohan) is trying to stay out of all of this, but Christian keeps telling everyone about their wild sex life with random third and fourth partners. Their one rule is that they won't lie to each other, but both are keeping secrets: Tara has started seeing Ryan, who's actually her ex, while Christian is sleeping with his yoga teacher (Houston). And when these secrets emerge, trouble follows.
Christian is the usual Ellis protagonist, a guy with no real moral centre: his whole life seems lifted from the movies, and Deen plays him as a preening peacock, arrogantly sure he is in control of everything. He's a charismatic villain, and Deen commands the screen. But Lohan gives just as good as the more emotional Tara, who is a bundle of naivete and duplicity, driven by insecurity and just as power-mad as Christian, really. Opposite them, Funk and Brooks are playing the innocents caught in their depraved web, so they're the ones we can identify with.

After leaving her court-ordered stint in rehab, the troubled star has claimed that she is now sober for good...
Lindsay Lohan has made a vow of sobriety following her court-order stay in a rehabilitation facility, claiming that she never wants to see a drop of alcohol ever again. As reported by TMZ, Lindsay is so determined to make sure her attempts at full-time sobriety go as planned, that she plans on having all traces of alcohol removed from anywhere she intends on visiting, be it a hotel, film set or even a friend or family member's home.
Lindsay has taken a vow of sobriety, but how long will it last?
Lindsay has had a long and well-documented relationship with booze, and you can forgive us for thinking 'we'll believe this when we see it,' but so far it looks as though the 27-year-old is sticking to her alcohol-free plan. The actress reportedly checked into the Beverly Hills Hotel last week and had the staff remove all traced of alcohol from her room before she arrived. Similarly, her recent co-hosting job on Chelsea Lately... was a booze-free occasion, with the actress asking that her dressing room only be filled with non-alcoholic beverages. So far so good then.

Maybe Lindsay Lohan's movie isn't the disaster predicted by the New York magazine.
No, it's not the fact that The Canyons received one good review this week.
In January, the New York Magazine's Stephen Rodrick wrote a long, detailed article on The Canyons with a hugely cynical tone.
Continue reading: Why Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons' Is A Complete Success
With a screenplay by Brett Easton Ellis, expectations are high for this one.
Lindsay Lohan’s upcoming movie (it’s been a long time since those words were last put together) is fast approaching its August 2nd release date and the movie gods have finally graced us with a trailer to mark the occasion. The trailer for 'The Canyons' opens with a gloomy voiceover of Lohan’s character, Tara, waxing on about the movie going experience, over footage of abandoned theatres, only to transition into a dreamlike sequence of Tara’s party girl lifestyle.
Does this signify the return of Lindsay Lohan?
If the neon montage of Lohan and co-star James Deen is anything to go by, the film looks set to follow in the footsteps of previous hits "Spring Breakers" and "The Bling Ring" – in that it uses fast editing and shock inducing music to put a pretty package over its attempts at scathing social commentary. How much of that will work for "The Canyons" remains to be seen.
The former child star discussed the pitfalls of performing so young and why it is so easy for a child star to see their life spiral out of control
You may recognise Mara Wilson from somewhere if you saw a picture of her today, not from anywhere recent but from your childhood, as though she is a long-lost friend you lost touch with in high school. That's because Mara Wilson was one of the most famous faces of the 90's and the star of numerous blockbusters such as Mrs Doubtfire, Matilda and the Miracle on 34th Street remake that made her a household name.
Mara isn't like most other child stars though, the Macaulay Culkins, Lindsay Lohans and the Amanda Bynes that have seen their lives spiral out of control just as their careers have dwindled to nothing, however the former child star has given some insight into why such well-known and loved celebrities spiral out of control after a childhood in front of the cameras. Mara, who quit acting in 2000, wrote a humorous yet informative article for Cracked.com entitled '7 Reasons Child Stars Go Crazy,' giving an insiders perspective on why so many child stars descend into madness.
Her first point was that 'Their Parents Won't Help Them ...' a point that included numerous nods to the help her own parents gave her in her young career. Mara herself had to 'force' her parents into letting her act and were fully supportive of her when she decided to give it up. Many child stars however do not have this close-knit relationship with their parents, and in turn they grow to resent their parents for taking away their childhood, their earnings and for pushing them until the acting bug has warn off. Sound familiar?
The "Mean Girls" star's rehab adventures continue.
Betty Ford has been a tough time for many celebrities in the past, so Lindsay Lohan’s 5 pounds weight gain probably isn’t all that important, comparatively. Nevertheless, the Mean Girls star seems to really be struggling with her rehab regimen, especially since her doctors took away her Adderall. According to RadarOnline.com, who broke the story while LiLo claims to have only taken the drug to relieve her ADHD, Addies are notorious in Hollywood circles for their metabolism-boosting, appetite-lowering side effects.
“She has been exercising, but she just doesn’t have a lot of energy because she is no longer taking Adderall, which is a psychostimulant medication that contains amphetamine,” a source at Betty Ford said, via The Inquisitr. Meanwhile, Lohan herself claims that she never used the drug for its more shady properties: “I have severe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I can’t stand still,” Lohan said. “So I take Adderall (a prescription drug) for that, it calms me. I know people who take it to stay up, or girls who take it to supposedly stay slim because it kills your appetite. But I eat all the time. I just take it to stay calm. It works well for me.”
The Betty Ford team obviously doesn’t seem to believe her account though. In fact, it is the rehab center’s policy to not allow patients over 18 to take the drug. Aside from that minor struggle though, Lohan’s time in rehab seems to be paying off. After a week at the center, things are definitely looking up. Of course, she still has 80 days of court-mandated rehab left, so anything can happen.
Lindsay Lohan apparently wants out of the Betty Ford Center.
Lindsay Lohan is apparently "determined" to leave The Betty Ford Center though prosecutors are having absolutely none of it. According to TMZ.com, doctors at the famous rehabilitation center have cut Lindsay off her precious Adderall, which she always considered a deal breaker.
Sources connected to the situation say Lindsay is going "crazy" and is desperate to move to another facility that will cater for her needs. The Hollywood star has taken matters into her own hands and have researched other facilities, finding one on the west coast which she believes is the perfect venue to spend her 90 days. It is believed that Lohan believes the Betty Ford Center - home to previous patients including Robert Downey Jr and Johnny Cash - is "old school" and not sensitive to the contemporary problems of young people.
Law enforcement sources say prosecutors are "unbending" and will not approve any move. One source said, "She had 45 days to find a suitable place. She didn't listen to her people and just did what she wanted so it's her problem now. Not gonna happen."

Lindsay reckons she's had enough
It doesn’t take long for Lindsay Lohan to get bored of a place. Ironically, she wants out of her rehab facility, The Betty Ford Centre, early doors because they’ve taken away her ADHD medicine, Adderall.
This was supposed to be a three month sting in rehab, but according to The Mean Girls star, this isn’t going to last. “I don’t think I need to be on lockdown for three months,” she told Piers Morgan in an interview published in London’s Mail on Sunday newspaper. “I’ve been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time.” Lindsay’s done a lot of things in her time; things that have landed her in a fair amount of trouble, but she maintains she has no regrets. “I live without regrets,” she insisted. “There are certain things I have done, mistakes that I made, that I would change, but I don’t regret them at all, because I’ve learned from them.”
Lohan also opened up on her sexuality following a lengthy lesbian relationship with Samantha Ronson. “I like being in a relationship with a guy,” she said. “But there’s something just different about it with a woman."

Lohan wants out of her sentence
Lindsay Lohan hasn’t been in rehab for long (this time anyway), but she’s already plotting her way out because the drug treatment center have taken away her supply of Adderall. Doctors decided she doesn’t need the pills, which she takes to battle her ADHD.
Thing is, it’s pretty addictive, and they don’t tend to give it to people over the age of 15. Lindsay may not act like it, but she’s nearly double that age. “I don’t think I need to be on lockdown for three months,” she told Piers Morgan in an interview published in London’s Mail on Sunday newspaper. “I’ve been court-ordered to do it six times. I could write the book on rehab. Constantly sending me to rehab is pointless. The first few times I was court-ordered to rehab it was like a joke, like killing time.” Doctors believe Hollowood stars use Adderall as a weight control drug, too; so there’s even more reason to keep it away from a world-famous actress with addiction problems. “I live without regrets,” Lindsay insisted. “There are certain things I have done, mistakes that I made, that I would change, but I don’t regret them at all, because I’ve learned from them.”
It doesn’t seem likely that Lohan will be allowed to move though; it would require the judges and prosecutors to ignore completely what their doctors say and let the Mean Girls star have her way with the justice system. Hang on a minute…

Doctors at Betty Ford won't let her take Adderall.
Plot twist in Lindsay Lohan’s much discussed stay in rehab – she wants out. After her first week at the Betty Ford center, reports had been coming in that Lindsay was doing great and keeping on the straight and narrow… until the doctors tried to take away her Adderall that is. According to TMZ, the star now wants to transfer to another rehab center – one, which would allow her to take the ADHD medication.
Doctors at Betty Ford have evaluated Lohan and concluded that she does not need the pills, despite her claims that she suffers from attention deficit disorder. And in any case, the rehab center for the stars does not normally allow patients over 15 to take Adderall, claiming that there are alternatives to the drug with fewer side effects. Those side effects being weight loss, which is exactly why some Hollywood natives turn to the drug in the first place. And let’s not forget that Addy pills are also highly addictive – it’s not difficult to see why they’re not welcome at the rehab facility and in fact, it’s questionable whether any clinic would turn a blind eye to Lindsay taking them. None the less, the actress has been telling friends that she cannot stay at Betty Ford and wants to be moved to another facility that is not hard-nosed about Adderall. T
hat definitely wouldn’t sit too well with Judge Jim Dabney and prosecutors, considering that Betty Ford is the second rehab center Lohan is trying after she fled the first without even checking in. Well, no one ever said rehab was easy.

After a long history with substance abuse and reckless behavior, Lindsay Lohan’s latest stint in rehab might be a turnaround for her. The troubled starlet entered the infamous Betty Ford center five days ago and treatment seems to be going well, according to sources at the clinic. At this point, her parents, who have been divorced since 2007, might be summoned for a family therapy session, RadarOnline.com reports. A source revealed for the website that: “Lindsay’s counselors want to get Dina and Michael to Betty Ford for a series of sessions in the next few weeks. They feel like having her work through her family issues could help Lindsay’s recovery.”
“Families are encouraged to participate in group therapy,” the insider added.
Meanwhile, Dina Lohan hasn’t reacted well to the idea, saying, "Where did you hear that from? News to me!”

After some convincing, Lindsay Lohan checked into the Betty Ford Center.
After refusing to check into a Newport rehabilitation facility as part of her conviction for reckless driving, Lindsay Lohan has entered a 90-day court mandated stay at the Betty Ford Center. The star has had multiple stints in rehab thus far as well as multiple relapses, so her skipping out on rehab didn’t come as much of a surprise. This time, LiLo entered Morningside Recovery in Newport Beach, but then left within the hour, the LA Times reports.
This, of course, presented a bit of a challenge for her legal team, who had to arrange some other terms for Lohan to serve out her probation. She recently rehired her former attorney Shawn Holley, who represented her for several years, and the lawyer arranged for the "Mean Girls" star to enter the Rancho Mirage facility. The Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Atty. Terry White said Friday that he had given "tentative approval" to the actress to serve her court-mandated rehab at a different facility from the one in Newport Beach. LiLo chose the infamous Betty Ford rehab center for her 90-day stay.
This is quite a good development for her, but the Scary Movie 5 actress is still on really thin ice. The judge she appeared before on Thursday mandated that any slipup on Lohan’s part at this point would result in six months behind bars for the actress. Instead, her 90 days in rehab will be followed up with a month of community service and three months in phsychotherapy. Maybe that might finally move the troubled actress out of her rut.

Is it folly to suggest The Bling Ring could be a contender for the major awards this year?
The alarm bells started ringing when Sofia Coppola, the director of Lost in Translation and Somewhere, announced she would be adapting the story of a group of internet savvy Los Angeles burglars for the big-screen. Just as David Fincher's Facebook tale The Social Network vied for the top awards at the Oscars and Golden Globes, the idea of Coppola's The Bling Ring seemed likely to chime with the social media generation, and a new wave of younger Academy voters.
Unsurprisingly, the Cannes Film Festival welcomed Coppola and her new movie with open arms for this year's event, where it will make its worldwide premiere. That said, should The Bling Ring pull in nominations for this year's awards season, it would represent a very different type of awards' success story. Firstly, its lead actress Emma Watson is hardly an awards' magnet, having really only starred in the Harry Potter franchise and a couple of lightweight dramas. Secondly, it features appearances from the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan in its examination of America's obsession with celebrity culture and the A-list mecca that is Los Angeles. Though we could imagine it scoring nods for the Globes, it would be a massive feat should The Bling Ring compete at the Oscars. However, it does have one thing in its favour: the director.

Stevie Nicks says Reese Witherspoon is "too old" to play her in a biopic.
Stevie Nicks appears to have shot down any chance Reese Witherspoon had of playing her in a movie biopic, branding the Oscar winner "too old" to play her. Witherspoon has mentioned as a possible casting choice for a planned movie about Nicks and Fleetwood Mac, but the legendary singer says her days after numbered. "I've already told her she's almost too old," the singer told ET Canada at the Toronto premiere of her new documentary In Your Dreams.
It appears Witherspoon might be of the same opinion, "I love her, but she's like, 'I could play your mother," Nicks recalls. Though the Hollywood actress is just 37, a movie about the Fleetwood Mac singer is likely to focus on her younger years and rise to stardom, which probably would make it a little difficult for Witherspoon to tale the role. Anyway, she's got other things on her plate.
She was snapped on the set of her new movie 'The Good Lie' in Atlanta this week, wearing cowboy boots, a jean skirt and a teal top. The movie is based on the real life story of a young refugee of the Sudanese Civil War who wins a lottery for relocation to the U.S with three other boys. He develops an unlikely friendship with a brash American woman assigned to help him, though struggles to adjust to the modern world and feels guilty about the brother he left behind in war-torn Sudan.

Baseball biopic '42' stormed the box-office this weekend, following strong reviews.
In the end, it wasn't even close was it? Baseball biopic '42' surged to the top of the box-office this weekend, earning $27.3 million to comfortably see off the star-studded 'Scary Movie 5.' The movie, starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, tells the story of the first black major league baseball player, Jackie Robinson.
Many industry analysts had '42' and 'Scary Movie 5' neck-and-neck going into the weekend's box-office, though the latter had to settle for $15.2 million despite its cast including Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen. Elsewhere, animated movie The Croods took third place for a second week, while horror remake Evil Dead faded to fifth place despite topping the pile last week. Tom Cruise's new big-budget movie Oblivion earned $61.1 million internationally following its launch in 52 countries and should perform strongly once it opens in the U.S on Friday (April 12, 2013).
However, the success of '42' may continue this weekend as Major League players mark the 66th anniversary of Robinson's professional debut by wearing his famous shirt number on Monday. "Think of what a tribute that is for what he accomplished. Every player wearing 42 on his back," said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros. "It's a story that has so much emotion to it. Jackie Robinson's life had such an influence on our country," he added.

Lindsay Lohan is once again on the path to recovery, but it looks like the real deal this time.
Lindsay Lohan is on her way to a comeback, if her most recent appearance on Letterman is anything to go by.
In her chat with the talk show host, Lohan’s personality and wit shone through for the first time in a while and everyone took notice. Even celebrity gossip site Gawker had a few positive things to say for once: "Humanity shines through … Lindsay was witty and borderline charming for much of her chat with Dave. There may be hope for her yet," the article states.
Lindsay has also been working more than usual recently, having appeared along her friend, Charlie Sheen in both a cameo in Scary Movie 5 (where she poked fun at her own ridiculous situation) and Sheen’s TV series, Anger Management. However, with reports of Lohan’s questionable behavior during shooting and with her previous history of substance abuse, everyone is weary of calling it a comeback just yet. Noah Levi, senior editor at In Touch Weekly magazine, made this cautious comment on Lindsay’s pending recovery: "She seemed to be slightly apologetic, slightly aware. But I don't think she is fully there yet.”

With the release of Scary Movie 5 this weekend, we take a look at Lindsay Lohan's Top 5 worst films, ever.
In the wake of Scary Movie 5's release, we've trawled through the troubled actress's movie credits to establish whether the latest instalment in the comedy franchise makes it into her Top 5 worst films of all time. The movie is the first not to feature Cindy Campbell, aka Anna Faris, who basically carried the previous films so we're not expecting great things for the fifth instalment. Though the heavyweight critics are yet to weigh in, Australia's The Age said, "This is the first Scary Movie in seven years, but the formula remains unchanged, with a thin storyline linking spoofs of Hollywood hits." For now, we're willing to give Scary Movie 5 the benefit of the doubt, but here's five other stinkers from the Lohan back catalogue.
Remember Labor Pains, from 2009? Well, you shouldn't, because nobody saw it. It focuses on Lindsay's character, an office assistant who fakes a pregnancy to get on the good side of her stringent boss. Billed as a romantic comedy and starring Cheryl Hines and Chris Parnell in the supporting cast, this throwaway movie was instantly forgettable and garnered some shocking reviews. After it failed t if Lindsay thought this movie was ever going to hit theater screens, Jason McKiernan of Filmcritic.com said "If Lindsay thought this movie was ever going to hit theater screens, the joke was on her."

Lindsay Lohan arrived at the Scary Movie 5 premiere 30 minutes after the red-carpet was supposed to close.
Lindsay Lohan arrived fashionably late to the premiere of Scary Movie 5 in Hollywood last night. We say fashionably late, what we actually mean is she arrived 30 minutes AFTER the red carpet was due to close and moments before the movie was about to start. Lohan - who is rehab bound - posed for a couple of solo photos before being joined by co-star Charlie Sheen. The actress wore a sleek knee-length dress, which worked well with tousled auburn hair. It's safe to say she was very much the star of the show and photographers jostled for position to get the perfect snap.
Lohan and Sheen exchanged greetings and took pictures together before Sheen left her to her press duties. However, there was little for the waiting journalists as Lohan was rushed into the screening with her publicist in tow, having no time to stop and greet her fans who had congregated outside the theatre holding up 'Team Lohan' signs. Who in their right mind would... forget it. Though Lohan was the main event, the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Mike Tyson, Heather Locklear, Kate Walsh and Jerry O'Connell attended the premiere too.
The actress flew into Los Angeles from New York very early on Thursday morning (April 11, 2013) and is scheduled to attend the Coachella music festival in Indio, California, this weekend. However, according to TMZ.com, the actress is telling friends she "doesn't care about all the snipers who are scoffing" at her rehabilitation and insists she will stay clean at the festival, which she, err, enjoyed last year. A judge in her criminal case has warned her to stay away from people who do drugs or alcohol, which could be problematic at Coachella, headlined this year by The Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Scary Movie 5 won't have it all its own way at the box-office this weekend.
Pre-release tracking figures suggest this weekend's race for the box-office top-spot, contested by a biopic of baseball legend Jackie Robinson and the big-budget Scary Movie 5 starring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, could be closer than first assumed. In fact, surveys suggest both movies are on track to pull in somewhere in the region of $17.5 million each - though which will prevail?
Scary Movie is the latest instalment in the long-running franchise, that dates back to 2000. Though critical reception is almost always relatively poor, the films do generally good business and the heavyweight cast this time around - which also features Ashley Tisdale - will help it to solid takings. The previous movie, Scary Movie 4, opened to $40 million in April 2006, though The Weinstein Company's Dimension films isn't expecting those numbers this time.
Meanwhile, baseball picture '42', starring Harrison Ford as the Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey, was made for around $40 million and has the benefit of word of mouth marketing. Warner Bros showed the movie to various baseball teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers during spring training and there's already quite a buzz. The reviews are pretty good too, with Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times saying, "Robinson's story had so much drama in real life, and his sacrifice and pain made such a lasting influence, that "42" ends up being effective in its gee-whiz way almost in spite of itself." It opens in 3,002 locations throughout North America this weekend and the studio is anticipating takings of around $15 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Whether that's enough to steal away the No.1 spot from Scary Movie 5 remains to be seen.

Lindsay Lohan will not be allowed to leave the facility in New York.
Lindsay Lohan has made arrangements to enter a rehabilitation facility in New York state in May, according to the Los Angeles Times. Lohan's legal team is understandably keen not to disclose the details of the facility, though it's likely that media outlets will be furiously scurrying around Gotham to find out where Lindsay will be holed up for the next three months.
The actress, 26, made an appearance on the David Letterman show on Tuesday (April 9, 2013) and although saying she hadn't spoken about rehab in the pre-interview, was peppered with questions about her three-month stint by the TV host. In fairness, she remained upbeat and made a few jokes. "I'm the happiest when I'm working, and the healthiest. And I think [rehab] is an opportunity for me to, you know, focus on what I love in life. And I don't think it's a bad thing," she said. "I think it's a blessing ... and not a curse," she explained. When asked if she had "addiction" problems, Lohan told Letterman he sounded like Dr Phil, much to the delight of the live studio audience.
During her sentencing for lying to police, Lohan was ordered to enter a facility in which she could leave for any reason. Though the facility will not be locked as such, Lohan would violate her probation if she left at any time. Officials will be monitoring her progress at all times, though her attorney Mark Heller said, "I'm very confident that you won't be seeing Lindsay Lohan in any criminal courts any time in the future."

Hotel tycoon Vikram Chatwal was arrested and charged with drug posession this Tuesday.
New York hotelier Vikram Chatwal, who is incidentally a close friend of one Lindsay Lohan, has been charged with drug possession after trying to board a plane with a number of illegal substances.
Chatwal allegedly had cocaine, marijuana, heroin and pills on him, when he tried to go through security at the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport last Tuesday. Airport security found the drugs stashed in his bag. Almost makes you wonder whether he wasn’t actually trying to get caught.
He was booked on one count of trafficking six grams of heroin and seven counts of drug possession, including: cocaine, pot, ketamine, muscle relaxants, Xanax, sedatives and the opioid buprenorphine. Does anyone even know what that last one means? The 41-year-old entrepreneur confessed to the authorities that he illegally bought the drugs.

Lindsay Lohan had a near miss after falling out of her dress in Brazil over the weekend, however the potential nip slip is really the least of her problems at the moment.
Lindsay Lohan has a history of mishappenings occurring to her when getting out of vehicles in the past, and upon her arrival in the Brazilian island of Florianopolis the actress managed to escape with a near miss after nearly falling out of her dress. The troubled star has been in Brazil since Thursday (March 28), for the opening of John John Denim's flagship store in Sao Paulo and since then it is believed that the actress has been partying almost nonstop since then.
Lindsay Lohan, seen here in court, has more than potential wardrobe malfunctions to worry about at the moment
Lindsay was getting out of the helicopter that flew her and some friends over to the island, but her hair managed to artfully cover up her would-be exposed breast. Really, almost having her breast exposed is the least of Lindsay's problems at the moment, after all, it's nothing we haven't seen before. The real problem for the Scary Movie 5 actress is the seemingly endless exploitation of Brazil's notorious nightlife, which given her history may result in her landing in trouble a little worse that a nip slip.

Lindsay Lohan has made a plea bargain with the courts in her latest trial, offering to go to rehab as they have asked, but only if she gets to take her Adderall prescription with her.
Say what you like about Lindsay Lohan and her continually disintegrating personal life, the girl sure knows how to full column inches week after week. In her most recent court case, in which she is accused of lying to police over a automobile incident, the former child actress has made a plea with the courts that says she will adhere to her sentenced stint in rehab, but only if she gets to carry on taking Adderall.
Lindsay Lohan, seen here in court, seems to think her plea bargain will work
According to TMZ, who broke the story, LiLo claims that she has taken the drug on a daily basis for years and she insists that she needs to use it regularly to function properly. Adderall is often prescribed to people suffering from attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, although it is often misused by people for a recreational purpose. When Lindsay was jailed back in 2010, she managed to have her doctor prescribe her the drug whilst she was behind bars, even though her ADHD diagnosis was called into serious question by some. Despite Lindsay's claims that she is reliant on Adderall to manage her supposed disorder, a number of people close to the star have claimed that the drug is mostly responsible for her massive downfall.
Anger Management appearance finds Lindsay Lohan back in bed with Charlie Sheen
They might seem like an unlikely couple but the Lohan and Sheen scene in Scary Movie 5, which saw the two Hollywood stars in bed together has been reprised. Lindsay and Charlie clearly thought that filming one bed scene together just wasn’t enough for them and decided to do it again; this time for Charlie’s popular FX comedy Anger Management.
Lindsay is currently awaiting news on where she is supposed to serve her 3 month ‘rehab lockdown’ sentence, for lying to cops about a car crash. In the meantime, whilst her lawyer wrangles with court officials over whether or not the concept of a locked rehab facility is something that actually exists, in real life, Lohan had some free time on her hands and made an appearance in the comedy series. After Sheen suffered a series of very public dramas and embarrassments, it was Anger Management that managed to get his public image back on track. Perhaps he’s hoping an appearance on the show will do the same for young Lindsay?
According to E News, Lindsay Lohan plays herself, but in the show, she’s a patient of Sheen’s therapist, who falls in love with him. The storyline apparently draws on her troubles with the police and pokes fun at her fondness for partying. The episode is scheduled to air in April.
Lindsay Lohan cannot complete her 90 days in a rehabilitation facility, because such a place doesn't exist!
Lindsay Lohan may not be able to complete her 90-days at a lockdown rehabilitation facility...because such a place doesn't even exist! Lohan's lawyer Mark Heller told prosecutors he could get his client into a 90-day lockdown rehab center in New York City, though according to TMZ.com, there are zero non-jail rehab facilities that will keep patients locked down anywhere in America.
There is one facility in New York connected with the prison system, though you have to have a felony record to get in, which Lindsay doesn't have. The entertainment website also checked to see if Lohan could complete her 90-day lockdown rehab in California, but there isn't a facility in that state either. Rehabilitation guru and television personality Dr Drew said, "There is no rehab that will hold you against your will, unless they feel the person is a suicide risk, and in that case they can hold the individual for 72 hours."
Obviously, this presents a big problem for Lindsay, given her actual sentence of 90 days in jail was waivered in favour of the lockdown rehab. Sources say the prosecutors genuinely believed such a facility existed when they offered the plea deal. Regular rehabilitation centers apparently don't cut it for Lohan, who snuck out of the Cirque Lodge in Utah and allegedly pulled the same stunt at the Betty Ford clinic in California.

Nine whole hours in a California jail - that ought to teach him.
Get busted for a DUI, get sentenced to 55 days in jail, serve nine hours – sounds like a good deal right?
Bobby Brown probably thinks so. After the performer got sentenced for his second DUI in seven months, he was supposed to serve just 55 days in the slammer – a definite downgrade from the 120 the state of California usually requires for a repeated offence. But that still wasn’t brief enough – the 80s R&B artist got released a mere 9 hours after entering the LA County Jail, to the minute. But officials claim that it wasn’t due to any preferential treatment for Bobby Brown, simply overcrowded jails and lack of space. That sounds believable enough, considering the state of the American justice system.
Rather disappointlingly, Brown’s one day of jail time wasn’t even brief enough to win him the record, which still stays with Lindsay Lohan. In 2011 the troubled star managed to serve her 30-day sentence in just five hours. Talk about time management. Bobby Brown probably makes the top five though.

Will the troubled star land up in jail after all?
Earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to spending a 90-day stretch in a rehab clinic in New York, for lying to cops about a car accident that happened last year. The judges stated that Lohan had to spend the 90-day term in a locked facility, i.e. she would be in custody for those three months. However, TMZ have done a lot of rooting around at rehab facilities in New York and haven’t been able to find a single one that actually has lockable facilities for its patients. Given Lindsay’s propensity for escaping from rehab facilities, it’s no wonder she didn’t look too bothered by the sentence.
In the past, Lohan has gotten herself into trouble for sneaking out of her rehab facilities. She “frequently” snuck out of Cirque Lodge in Utah, according to TMZ and she allegedly got into a fight with a staff member at the Betty Ford clinic after learning they were about to grass her up for sneaking out. The question remains, of course of what exactly will happen to Lindsay if there are no lockdown rehab centres in New York that will fulfil the requirements of her sentence.
Law enforcement sources have informed TMZ that prosecutors offered the plea on the basis of Mark Heller’s representation – that’s Lindsay’s lawyer. They’re now investigating his claims and one source said “The sentence was actually 90 days in custody, and lockdown rehab would satisfy that. If there's no such thing, then she'll go to jail for 90 days."

An unexpectedly glitzy entrance to an LA court hearing, for Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan may have been late for court but she certainly arrived in style, even if it wasn’t entirely her own doing. As the actress arrived at a Los Angeles court house today (March 18, 2013), she was doused in what appeared to be gold glitter, by an un-named individual. A picture published by the Los Angeles Times website shows Lohan, dressed in white, wearing shades and grinning as she marches through the cloud of glitter.
Lindsay is currently appearing in court because she has been accused of lying to police about a car crash that occurred on June 18, 2012, involving her Porsche. She told police that she had not been driving the car, though this is disputed. She faces a misdemeanour charge of reckless driving, providing false information and wilfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer. The 26 year-old actress has frequently been in trouble with the police and has been on probation since 2007 for a variety of drunk-driving and shoplifting charges. She is currently being represented by Mark Heller, whose professional adequacy has been called into question by the Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Dabney. Dabney has questioned whether or not Heller is competent enough to represent Lohan in Los Angeles, as he appears to have limited knowledge of the Californian criminal procedure and attempted to file a ‘bill of particulars;’ a motion not used in Californian law.
Lindsay’s father, Michael Lohan, has prepared for another legal team to be on standby for his daughter. Though they have a fractured relationship, Michael was present in court and he told the press “I'm Lindsay's father, and I'm not at all comfortable with the poor representation she is getting right now. My daughter's freedom and future are at stake, and I'm doing what any father would do in this dire situation."

Justin Bieber has been heavily criticised for his recent 'rant' on Instagram and for including Lindsay Lohan in his list of complaints. His sentiments, however, and his meaning all came from the right place. His 'rant' was justified.
For some reason contemporary Western culture has a problem with anger. No one is allowed to show their negative feelings verbally. No one is allowed to express that they feel dissatisfied by their life or by the behaviour of others. Of course, violence, hate speech and murder are all steps beyond anger and are a part of something that runs in a deeper and more insipid framework of thought, but anger and expressing it verbally is not only healthy, but necessary.
Justin Bieber's recent 'rant' on Instagram has been portrayed in an enormously exaggerated way by the media and neither he nor it deserves quite such bad press. However, as he tried to remind us all in that post, he is human, he is entitled to his opinion and he is entitled to mistakes.
And he did make a mistake in the post - including Lindsay Lohan and criticising her was below the belt. But he retracted it and has apologised since. He told TMZ: "My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
Lindsay Lohan believes she's done nothing wrong and is playing hard ball during negotiations with the prosecution.
Good ol’ Lindsay – she just isn’t slowing down!
Or maybe it’s just her past catching up with her, as it appears that she will be on trial for misdemeanors from way back when – June 2012 to be exact.
Lindsay has reportedly been offered multiple plea bargains, but she and her legal team are not willing to accept anything less than a “not guilty” verdict, according to The Los Angeles Times. The case currently under discussion is her lying to cops incident. Her attorney Mark Heller has been in talks and has reportedly been offered multiple deals, featuring rehab and/or house arrest for the troubled actress, in place of actual jail time. However, the prosecution is firm in demanding at least 90 days of rehab for Lohan, and Heller is trying to secure her less than that.

The Anger Management star has recently lend Lohan $100k towards her tax troubles
Well how about this for gratitude? Lindsay Lohan is reportedly angry at Charlie Sheen – that’s right, the Charlie Sheen who recently gave her $100k to help her pay off her back taxes, who supported her for Scary Movie 5 and who has been publicly defending the wayward star. We’ll bet he wish he hadn’t bothered.
Apparently Lohan is angry at Sheen’s suggestion that he could act as a mentor figure to the actress, who is currently in legal, financial, career and social turmoil. That’s a lot of turmoil. Sheen of course had his own well-documented break down a couple of years back, but has made a pretty excellent fist of getting his life back on track, and is currently starring in the sitcom Anger Management. You’d think he’d be exactly the man to give Lohan an instruction manual on how to get things going again after quite a big screw up (or several.) However, according to TMZ the star isn’t happy with Sheen’s suggestion, with insiders saying that she doesn’t believe the adage ‘it takes one to know one’ would be the way to go – in fact she just wishes he’d stop talking about her in public at all. Time to call that $100k back in we reckon, Charlie.

More problems follow Lindsay Lohan as she rejects a plea deal and is given advice to change her lawyer.
They've tried to make her go to rehab but she said no, no, no. Lindsay Lohan was offered rehab over jail recently in court, but Lohan turned the offer down, as the Sun Times reports. It seems she's taken Amy Winehouse's lyrics to heart. We truly hope she changes her mind though because continuing in Winehouse's footsteps can only lead to a tragic end, and no one wants to see Lohan join the 27 club.
Her litigious history is getting messier and messier, not least because of the change of lawyer. Here's a very quick breakdown: a few years ago she was arrested and convicted of having stolen some jewellery. She went to prison briefly but was released quickly due to overcrowding. She has been on probation ever since. However, after a car crash last summer which the prosecution are claiming she lied to the police about, she's had her probation called into question and revoked. She's now set to be in court on March 18th for a trial. However, back in January she was also forced to change her lawyer and now has Mark Heller, a New York attorney, representing her... in California, despite not knowing or understanding the different court procedures. See, messy!
To make matters worse the judge in the courtroom last week told Lindsay and Heller that they would need another legal representative to help Heller because, as TMZ say he's "incompetent to practice law in California and said Lindsay either has to get another lawyer who knows what he's doing or she has to come into court and waive her right to a competent California lawyer."
Lindsay Lohan just can't catch a break
Lindsay Lohan’s attempt to get reckless driving and obstruction case dismissed has failed. The presiding judge has dismissed that, and maintained that she still has to stand trial later this month in connection with a 2012 car crash.
Now Lohan will go to court on March 18th, and will be defending herself against charges of reckless driving, lying to authorities and obstructing the police in the aftermath of the accident. Lohan has pleaded not guilty to the charges, with her lawyer Mark Heller claiming Lindsay, “suffered a concussion, and never should have been questioned by the police. She was basically held against her will and forced to answer questions,” according to Radar Online. “For Mark Heller to claim that Lindsay had a concussion is an absolute and blatant lie. When she was questioned by cops at the emergency room, she wasn’t denied any medical attention because of them,” a law enforcement source told the website. “The doctors who treated Lindsay on the day of her car accident last summer didn’t diagnose her with a concussion. She suffered no injury to her head whatsoever” The validity of those quotes aren’t concrete, but the judges decision is certainly in line with them.

Star back in court on wreckless driving charge
As night follows day, so Lindsay Lohan is back in court. The long-running saga over a traffic incident in New York last summer has returned in front of the judges, with the main aim for the actress’s lawyers just to keep her out of jail at this point. It’s not looking good for Lohan; as you probably know by now, Lohan is up for one misdemeanor of reckless driving, providing false information to an officer and willfully resisting, obstructing or delaying an officer. The incident it surrounds saw Lohan allegedly hit a truck with a Porsche, but then claim that she wasn’t the person driving. With it happening while the star was on probation for another charge, it spelt the end of her probation and subsequently the end of her last warning – so you’d think.
The Los Angeles Times though is reporting that Lohan will avoid trial on those charges if she agrees to undertake 90 days of rehabilitation in a lockdown facility. Though her lawyers have offered pleas all week – with one suggesting she go into schools and places of work to provide motivational speaking talks, um… - it’s believed that the Los Angeles City attorneys won’t accept anything less than then rehab deal on the table.

Actress Lindsay Lohan still bargaining with cops over allegedly lying about car crash
Lindsay Lohan’s lawyer, Mark Heller – who must have the patience of a saint – is still embroiled in the process of cutting a plea bargain to ensure that Lohan doesn’t have to go to trial for allegedly lying to cops about a car crash. Yesterday (February 27, 2013), Heller had a conference call meeting with Santa Monica and LA City prosecutors, who were insisting that Lindsay spend a significant spell in a rehabilitation institution. They were willing to reduce the length of time from 60 days to 30 days, but Heller and Lohan said ‘no deal’ to that offer.
According to a source close to Lohan, the trouble-magnet actress doesn’t see why she should have to serve time in a rehab facility because it feels as though she is being punished for something she hasn’t done, TMZ report. Of course, the flipside of her not accepting the plea bargain is that she will most likely be summoned to trial on March 18, 2013, if she doesn’t want to play ball with what the prosecutors are offering. Heller hasn’t given up though and negotiations are on-going. Just don’t be surprised if this one plays out in court.
This latest news comes amidst revelations that Lohan is facing further tax problems. On top of her existing tax problems. On top of her ailing career problems. And her ‘having to move back in with mom’ problems. Will this become yet another court case for Lindsay Lohan?
Star's attorney suggests talks in schools and hospitals to keep her out of prison
If you could pick one actor to have as a motivational speaker, who would it be? Obviously Morgan Freeman speaks with the wise tones of a man who’s seen and done it all before, he commands respect. Then there are other dignified luminaries like Helen Mirren, or someone who possesses unbridled passion like Samuel L Jackson. In fact, we’d have Lindsay Lohan really quite far down the list of actors we’d want as a motivational speaker, probably behind the guy who played Jack in Dawson’s Creek and since faded into obscurity.
However, according to her lawyer, motivational speaking could be just what Lohan needs; well he would say that, as he’s using it as a bargaining tool to keep the troubled star out of jail. Sky News reports that Lohan’s lawyer Mark Heller has written to the courts offering a series of alternatives to Lohan going to jail, over an incident that saw her allegedly crash a car in New York and then lie that she wasn’t behind the wheel. This also violated her probation for a previous misdemeanor.
The letter suggested that she would make "periodic visits to schools, hospitals and other venues where she may provide inspirational talks, encouraging children to pursue positive goals and avoid bad habits". This was to be done as community service. The case returns to court on Friday (March 1, 2013), we’re not sure if they’re going to go for it to be honest.
Lindsay Lohan is set to appear in an upcoming episode of the sitcom Anger Management with her Scary Movie 5 co-star Charlie Sheen.
Charlie Sheen must really really want to help out his new friend Lindsay Lohan as much as he can, with the often controversial actor throwing the equally controversial Lohan yet another bone by getting her a guest spot on his current sitcom Anger Management.
Cash-strapped star ruins loaned outfit
Lindsay Lohan ruined a borrowed designer dress worth over $1700 by chopping the bottom off. What was she thinking?!
Some of the first lessons parents teach their children are about politeness and respect for others. That means treating people and their things nicely. Lindsay Lohan did not get this memo.
Continue reading: Lindsay Lohan Ruins A Loaned Dress... By Chopping It Up With Scissors
Lindsay Lohan reportedly returned a borrowed dress, slashed in half, claiming she damaged it in a nightclub and asked a bouncer to cut it.
What EXACTLY happened to that glittering ball-gown that Lindsay Lohan borrowed to wear to an amFAR event earlier this month? According to US Weekly, it was cut in half by the time she returned it and sources say that she claims it had to be cut in half after it ripped during her evening out and says that she asked a bouncer to help her to cut the dress. In the pictures, it has been cut so that the formerly full-length dress is now longer at the back than it is at the front.
The source told Us Weekly “She said that the dress had ripped [at a club after the fundraiser] - she couldn't possibly wear it like that - so her stylist friend went to the club bouncer and requested some scissors to repair the torn part of the dress” and added “But what bouncer has scissors?” It certainly seems strange that Lohan would think that the best alternative to returning a damaged, borrowed dress would be a halved, borrowed dress. Reportedly, her pal Charlie Sheen helped her source the posh frock, hooking her up with celebrity stylist Philip Bloch. That’s the same Charlie Sheen who apparently loaned her a heap of money to help pay off her taxes. We bet he’s decided not to offer to help LiLo anymore, after all the hoo-ha it’s brought with it.
Lohan’s money worries stretch beyond not having a posh frock to wear. The Liz & Dick actress has been forced to move back in with her mom Dina after struggling to pay the rent on her previous home.
Fresh from her recent court appearances, it was a disheveled looking Lindsay Lohan that took to the amFAR Awards red carpet in New York last night (February 6, 2013). The star has been in court again after allegations that she broke the terms of her probation by getting into another car-relates scrape. Various reports have been knocking around that she's struggling with the ongoing troubles in her life - albeit many of them self-inflicted - and she looked less than 100% last night.
Lindsay Lohan's problems with the law have been rife over the past few weeks, but her finances are pretty serious as well. Owing hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax, as well as more in rent, she's probably pretty desperate for a better cash-flow.
There are a few ways to save money, and according to RadarOnline she's opting for the rent-free place at her mum's. All this seems a little dubious given that according to Yahoo she posted a photo of a big ol' diamond necklace and earrings on Twitter. However, it appears she's since deleted it.
Apparently, a source told RadarOnline that she's "flat out broke" and that she has a truly awful credit rating. Apparently, a "two-bedroom apartment in North Hollywood" would be too pricey for the star, adding that "she wouldn't be able to muster up a security deposit, let alone meet the rent every month." Yikes! While she's been able to find help in the past by friends co-signing for her, "she couldn't find anyone willing to do that now as she has burned so many of her friends and associates."
'Mean Girls' actress Lindsay Lohan is snapped arriving outside a Los Angeles court to attend her pre-trial hearing for her reckless driving case. She is with her mother Dina Lohan and her lawyer Mark Heller and they are being escorted into the building by officers.
We used to do it in school; try and get out of certain classes, saying we were ill with some expertly forged doctor's note. But Linsday has taken it a step too far, claiming she's too sick to go to court today, Wednesday, Jan. 30.
Reports suggest that Lohan had come down with the flu and had a note from a physician who determined that she was not healthy enough to fly. However, photos of her shopping in New York surfaced on the same day, making her story somewhat flawed. Lohan is being charged with violating her probation following a June car crash in which she is accused of obstruction, providing false information to an officer, and reckless driving. Wednesday's hearing was supposed to address issues in advance of her upcoming February trial. Lohan has set a precedent for this, too: she also missed a hearing in 2010, claiming at the time that she was stuck in France because her passport had been stolen.
Oh how we'll suffer if it turns out she's suffering from some life-threatening illness, and physically can't make it to the airport. Then again, it's 2013, video-call trials anyone? It would certainly cut out pulling a sicky.
It’s not looking good for Linsday Lohan’s new film, The Canyons; after being rejected by the Sundance Film Festival, the film has now been snubbed by the South by Southwest festival circuit, too.
Despite Lohan’s ability to give almost anything she’s in a bad name, Canyon’s rejection does come as a surprise, given the calibre behind the camera. Paul Schrader is the writer of Martin Scorsese classics Taxi Driver and Raging Bull as well as being a celebrated director, and Bret Easton Ellis is the literary mind behind American Psycho and Less Than Zero. The Hollywood Reporter quotes an insider at the Austin, Texas festival as saying there is "an ugliness and a deadness to it", though, and such is Lohan’s reputation, she – and the fact that she’s difficult to work with – are being blamed for the film’s embarrassing progress.
Ellis, Schrader and the film’s producer Braxton Pope reportedly had a falling out over the final cut, and at one point the Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh offered to cut the entire movie over three days after seeing a rough cut. "The idea of 72 hours is a joke," Schrader told the Times. "It would take him 72 hours to look at all the footage. And you know what Soderbergh would do if another director offered to cut his film? [Puts up two middle fingers.]" Meanwhile, Ellis is quoted as saying: "The film is so languorous. It's an hour 30, and it seems like it's three hours long. I saw this as a pranky noirish thriller, but Schrader turned it into, well, a Schrader film." (via The Guardian).
