Lindsay Lohan panicked last night, and took the last flight out of NYC to be in Los Angeles this morning
Lindsay Lohan DOES have some smarts!! Lindsay and her mom, Dina, took the very last flight out of JFK last night after being told she’s a wanted woman if she didn’t appear to her hearing in Los Angeles this morning.
Lindsay and her mom flew first class on American Airlines and landed in Los Angeles at 12:30 AM.
TMZ broke the story … Lindsay had no intention of showing up in her lying-to-cops case and got a doctor’s note which was filed with the court, saying she couldn’t fly because she had an upper respiratory infection. But then we posted pictures of Lindsay shopping and smoking in SoHo the very day she got the doctor’s note.
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.
Heller has another problem — the lawyer he got to sponsor him to appear in a California court has never met him, and it’s possible 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 …
When Lindsay landed last night, she and her mom went straight to the Shutters hotel in Los Angeles. When Dina tried to check them in, they were turned away from the hotel. Turns out Lindsay has been blacklisted from the hotel after trashing one of their rooms back in 2007. Lindsay & co. then went Loews Hotel, where they were also turned away. No word on where Lindsay ended up staying the night, but I’m thinking she will be on time to her court hearing this morning!
