Actress Lindsay Lohan has slammed reports she encouraged a young man to risk his life by jumping from her hotel suite balcony into a swimming pool below.

Guests at Los Angeles' Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel's Tropicana bar claimed an unnamed boy recently leaped from the MEAN GIRLS star's second-storey balcony and almost missed the pool.

But Lohan insists the accusations are completely false.

A witness tells The New York Daily News newspaper, "Lindsay spent last weekend in the $1,500-a-night Marilyn Monroe suite.

"She had a guy friend partying with her in her suite who jumped from the balcony into the pool and almost missed. Hotel staff were horrified."

However, Lohan's publicist counters, "If this happened, Lindsay was unaware of it. She emailed me and said, 'I've stayed at that hotel - that never happened.'"
