We’re really wondering when Lindsay Lohan will realize that her nights out clubbing almost ALWAYS end in disaster. This time, according to TMZ, she was out at the Electric Room in Dream Hotel with mama Dina Lohan, and somewhere during their drive home to Dina’s house early this morning, the two fought viciously. According to TMZ’s source, by the time they arrived at their destination, the scuffle escalated to the point where Lindsay suffered a cut on her leg and a broken bracelet. Someone called 911 about the domestic dispute, apparently saying that Lindsay was being held against her will by Dina and the driver, and cops arrived on the scene. Officials told the site that a domestic incident report was made, but no arrests were made. Read more…
How did directors, writers and producers trade heated insults before Twitter? Well, in a way much less entertaining for the rest of us, that’s for sure. We have been particularly entertained by the feud that bubbled up yesterday, when Bret Easton Ellisexpressed frustration that Kelly Marcel landed the gig he’d been vying for, writing the screenplay of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Unfortunately — or maybe fortunately — he lobbed this insult just an hour after releasing the teaser trailer for his upcoming movie, The Canyons, starring Lindsay Lohan and James Deen. The sneak peek plays up the campy nature of the movie with the look of a melodrama made in the 1960s. And it was basically placed in the direct line of fire of Fifty Shades producer Dana Brunetti. “@BretEastonEllis Really, Bret? The day you release that ‘trailer’. School film? You’re losing it,” he said in a tweet he then deleted, according to E!. Then Brunetti proceeded to retweet a slew of posts critiquing The Canyons. Read more…
Say what you want about Lindsay Lohan‘s tumultuous life, at least it’s filled with surprises. Every news story about Lilo is sort of like an episode of Law & Order: SVU. Just when you think Stabler and Benson have it all wrapped up, you find out in the last five minutes that the accused stalker was actually the judge’s long-lost kidnapped son the entire time. While we’re assuming Christian LaBella, Lindsay’s alleged attacker from an incident at the W Hotel Union Square early Sunday morning, is not her secret lost child, the fact he and Lindsay have both filed harassment charges against one another seems almost as bizarre. While assault charges against LaBella were dropped due to an apparently lack of evidence, according to NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne, “Cross complaints for harassment were filed and LaBella’s assault arrest was voided after detectives investigated further.” Cross complaints for harassment? Over a fight that broke out because LaBella allegedly took secret photos and video of Lindsay? What does that even mean? And does anyone else suspect we just narrowly avoided a Prince Harry moment starring one Miss Lindsay Lohan?
As if that wasn’t odd enough, LaBella’s uncle Peter Jessop randomly decided to weight in on the incident, telling the New York Daily News, “It’s shameful that a celebrity with a personal publicist can persecute a nice guy like Christian. He’s a decent kid who met her at a nightclub and she invited him back to her hotel room with other people. And now she’s using her celebrity to launch a full-scale witch hunt against him just to be relevant again.” Man, uncles really do not understand what makes people relevant, do they? Amanda Bynes’ uncle, you know what we’re talking about! Haha, we’re kidding of course. No one knows what we’re talking about, least of all us.
This has been one crazy weekend for Lindsay Lohan. She called the police early Saturday morning claiming a man she had just met and brought to her hotel room — Christian LaBella — had attacked her. The chain of events happened after the two got to know each other at the Chelsea club, 1Oak, but things got ugly when LiLo saw him taking photographs of her when they were in her hotel room later, with some other friends. According to TMZ, she told the cops that when she confronted him about the photos, he got violent and pushed her on her bed. She said she sustained scratches because of his assault. Apparently, she found approximately 50 pictures and videos of her on his phone that he had been emailing to his friends. It gets worse: she ran out of the room, supposedly, but upon her return, reports suggest that he assaulted her again, choked her and then threw her on the ground and then got on top of her. As mentioned earlier, her friends were present through this episode, and one of them succeeded pulling him off. Lindsay then claims she pulled the fire alarm to signal distress and police arrived on the scene to arrest LaBella on two misdemeanor counts of assault and two charges of harassment. Her spokesperson, Steve Honig had this to say, “Lindsay was assaulted early this morning in a New York hotel. While she did sustain some injuries, she was not hospitalized. The assailant was arrested and is currently in police custody. Lindsay has spoken with police and is fully cooperating with the investigation.”
But here’s a new wrinkle: Charges have been dropped against LaBella as there is insufficient evidence against him to build a case, and detectives can’t prosecute him on Lindsay’s story without proper cause. This sounds particularly worrying. While Lindsay isn’t exactly the straight arm of the law, would she really make something like this up? Where are the pictures and videos he took? Are there bruises and scratches on her body to prove what happened? What about eyewitness accounts, since her friends were present? Or was Lindsay exaggerating? We need to hear more of this story to put the pieces together.
Oh jeez, you guys. This just does not end. According to TMZ, Lindsay Lohan was taken to the emergency room at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York last night; according to their sources, the Liz & Dick actress is battling a “bad lung infection,” one of the five worst phrases to write after anything but the words “Lindsay Lohan doesn’t have a.” Does what we just said make sense? We don’t know! We’re so genuinely heart-broken for this lady; we can’t even tell anymore!
Other than grappling with that whole hit-and-run situation last week (along with new reports that she’s allegedly planning to sue her accuser), Lindsay seems to have spent most her time in NYC with her friend artist Domingo Zapata and his children. Lohan allegedly told friends recently she was fighting “walking pneumonia.” Fortunately she was prescribed medication and released from the E.R. shortly after her arrival, but the whole situation reminds us of those reports back in June claiming Lindsay was found unconscious in her hotel room during the Liz & Dick shoot. Later Lohan claimed she was merely resting. How we wish this girl was resting. She needs to lie on a couch for the foreseeable future. It’s what everyone else dreams of doing when they get home every night. Why not Lilo?
“God, that woman knows how to make an entrance,” Grant Bowler as Richard Burton says in the trailer for Lifetime’s Liz & Dick. And he could just as easily be talking about his co-star Lindsay Lohan as about Elizabeth Taylor. (Just ask Jose Rodriguez, heh. Sorry.) We’re dying to see this TV-movie already, and not because we’re huge fans of the screen legends and their tumultuous relationship, obvs, but because we want to see if this is the LiLo comeback we’ve been waiting for.
But alas, it looks like we’ll have to wait until November to answer that question. This trailer shows Lindsay looking super glam, as she has in all the stills we’ve seen from the movie. But here are the three lines she utters:
Dina Lohan is really doing her best to beat ex-husband Michael in the competition for Worst Parent in the World this week. On the heels of her seemingly intoxicated appearance on Dr. Phil and as Lindsay Lohan sits accused of swiping a dude with her Porsche, Dina gave an interview to the New York Daily News that just kind of makes everything worse. The News asked whether would she still allow Lindsay to go into acting, if she could do it all over.
“I was born into the business. My mother was an entertainer. It was natural. But yes, in the next life, I might not do it.”
At the same time, Lohan denies responsibility for her daughter. “I’m certainly not making excuses for Lindsay’s behavior,” Dina told the paper. “But she’s a 26-year-old woman.” Read more…
It’s days like these we’re glad we’re not police detectives. Every other day…well, it’s our biggest regret. The New York Post has the security footage from Lindsay Lohan‘s alleged hit-and-run accident Tuesday night, and it’s about as opaque as the bystanders’ tastefully obscured faces. On one hand, you do not see tourists leaping out of the way as Lindsay careens into The Dream Hotel on two wheels, nor do they, you know, act in any way like they’ve just witnessed an accident. On the other hand, you do see someone (ostensibly Jose Rodriquez, the man who claimed Lindsay struck him) hustling after the car as it drives out of frame.
We honestly don’t know what information, if any, to take away from the video, though we do know it’s not nearly as big a disaster as…
She’s baaaaacccck! We have to admit that we sort of forgot about Paris Hilton for a while there. What with much more talented and interesting celebrity disaster areas like Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes to keep track of, the heiress just sort of slipped our mind. But (un)fortunately, Paris is yet again making headlines thanks to some homophobic comments she made that were caught on tape. RadarOnline has the audio, and it’s pretty rough.
It all went down — as so many sketchy things do — late one night in the back of a cab. Paris was apparently coming back from a New York Fashion Week party with a friend, who is an openly gay male model. To pass the time Paris’ friend was giving her lessons on the homosexual dating app Grindr, a well-known hookup tool. According to the tape, Paris’ delicate sensibilities were offended by Grindr, and she made her displeasure known. “Ewww. Eww. To get f—ed? Gay guys are the horniest people in the world,” said the star of One Night in Paris. “They’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS. I would be so scared if I were a gay guy. You’ll, like, die of AIDS.”
Woah, all this talk about Amanda Bynes and how she’s the next Lindsay Lohan and Lindsay Lohan rears her head again! And it looks like she’s back to her old tricks. LiLo was arrested this morning in New York City after supposedly tapping a pedestrian with her Porsche Cayenne around two in the morning. This happened around the Dream Hotel in downtown NYC where she was apparently about to park her car. She ended up hitting this poor dude’s knee instead, or so he claims. Also, and here’s just an FYI. The owner of the Dream Hotel is Vikram Chatwal, who Li.Lo had a fling with earlier this year. Or may still be having a fling with, for all we know.
Back to the story though. Here’s the problem: While she should’ve checked to see if the guy was okay, since she hit his knee (even though it was at a really slow speed), she and some friends waltzed into the hotel. Only one of her posse checked to see if the car was harmed, not the alleged victim.
UPDATE:TMZ reports that surveillance footage shows that it’s unclear whether the car ever made contact with the man, who then ran after Lindsay. When she exited the car, she appeared completely unaware that she hit a person.
The guy then called 911 and was taken to the hospital, where he checked out okay. According to the surveillance video, Lindsay left the club minutes after entering it, and then returned again. It was after she left the second time that cops arrived to take her into custody. TMZ‘s sources say she was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident, but was subsequently released with something called a desk appearance ticket. That translates into her not having to post bail before being let go. No booze was involved, reports say.
Could this be more trouble for Lindsay who is currently on probation? We’ll just have to wait and see. Looks like she shouldn’t have tweeted Bynes about going to jail, huh. Let’s not tempt the fates, Lindz.
