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!
Yesterday was the fifth anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death in NYC. I didn’t cover it yesterday, because – I didn’t really know what to say. I remember his death really vividly. I was in the first couple years of working on this site, and when I heard, I just broke down. No actual tears, but it was such a sad, tragic feeling. He was so incredibly talented. I was mourning over all the work we’d never get to see from him. His career would have taken off and been huge – of course.
Anyway, Lindsay Lohan tweeted in memory of Heath.
I find it very odd that she put herself in the same category of the child Heath left behind, Matilda. What, Lindsay is so close with Matilda that she calls her “Matty”? Huh? I feel like it’s disrespectful to his daughter, his family, and Michelle Williams, the mother of his child.
Lindsay once said that Heath was the “love of her life” and Michael Lohan apparently has a taped conversation where he discussed with Dina how messed up Lindsay is, and it’s all because of Heath’s death.
Lindsay Lohan’s new movie, ‘The Canyons’ just cannot catch a break! First the movie was rejected by the Sundance Film Festival, and now South By Southwest is passing as well.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘The Canyons’ was rejected for “quality issues”. Hahaha!
Also starring porn star James Deen, “The Canyons” has been called “a monstrosity.” While director Paul Schrader (“Taxi Driver”) defended the film, saying that it “is very good,” he also said last week, “in a way it’s good we’re not at Sundance. We weren’t prepared, we weren’t organized.”
A recent New York Times feature entitled “Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie” did little to help the film. The piece describes the chaos surrounding Lohan, from $46,000 hotel bills to erratic behavior and days-long disappearances.
Shrader recognized the controversy surrounding Lohan, citing her role as the reason for the movie’s delayed release. “The intense reactions to ‘Liz and Dick’ and the Times Mag article have made us realize that there will be an immediate blowback once ‘The Canyons’ is publically screened -– for good and ill,” he said. “That’s the nature of anything involving Lindsay.”
The official plot synopsis for “The Canyons” describes the film as “a contemporary L.A. noir … about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally, among a group of young people in their 20′s and how one chance meeting connected to the past unravels all of their lives, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and ultimately violence.”
“The Canyons” is currently without a release date.
I wonder if Lindsay will ever be hired again to do a “serious” movie. How long until she’s doing porn? That wasn’t nice… I take it back.
