Lindsay Lohan clearly isn't the kind of gal to just sit around and wait for stuff to happen, as she has reportedly hired a private investigator to look into the ongoing assault charge against her, TMZ has reported.

For those unaware of the story so far, LiLo was confronted by a psychic, named Tiffany Mitchell, at a glitzy New York nightclub but Lindsay wasn't interested and told her to get lost. Now, Mitchell is saying that LiLo hit her and verbally abused her, calling her a "gypsy", whilst Lindsay says that whilst she did call her the 'g-word', she never laid a finger on Mitchell and whats more Mitchell's entourage even stole Lindsay's purse!

Now the two are at court, Mitchell has famed (and feared) attorney Gloria Allred to represent her, so in a bid to combat this Lindsay has hired a private investigator to dig up some dirt on the woman accusing her of assault.

According to TMZ, sources close to Lindsay have said that the star is certain that Mitchell is only getting involved in the case so that she can make a quick buck, which is why Lindsay in determined to delve into the depths of Mitchell's life to see if she has attempted anything like this in the past. Lindsay's pals think that Lindsay's reasoning behind the hiring of Allred to go with the 'outlandish' accusations only point to one thing - a rouse to win money from the troubled star. We are genuinely excited to find out.
