Lindsay Lohan was due to sit down with Barbara Walters this week for an interview to appear on ’20/20′, but the troubled actress has pulled out at the last minute.
TMZ is reporting that Lindsay’s PR team didn’t want Barbara asking her any questions about her car accident this past June.
Lindsay was scheduled to sit down with Walters this week … and we’re told when she originally agreed to the interview, it was supposed to focus on her new movie, “Liz & Dick.”
But sources close to the actress tell us … in the past week, producers made it clear to Lohan that Barbara wanted to talk about her personal life as well … including allegations that she lied to police about the June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway.
We’re told Lindsay’s new PR team, Rogers & Cowan, felt it would be a mistake to put Lindsay in the hot seat … where she could possibly say something that could screw up her case … so they pulled the plug.
Sources tell us Lindsay feels terrible for canceling on Barbara, especially since she considers Walters a family friend, and wants to reschedule as soon as her team feels the time is right.
We reached out to “20/20″ — so far, no response.
I’ve been reporting on Lindsay’s legal troubles for years now, and one thing has always been the same. Lindsay Lohan NEVER learns, and she ALWAYS skips out on any real trouble. Sure, she’s seen the inside of a courtroom a dozen times, but that’s about as far as it goes. Lindsay’s never actually learned her lesson.
Will this time be any different? Doubt it. It’s sad, really.
