Lindsay Lohan was paid $50K to host H’ween party & (surprise) she messed it up


Here is Lindsay Lohan’s “Carrie” costume for Halloween. Kelly Osbourne went as Carrie too. You think LL was pissed off about that? For my money, Kelly had the better costume – Lindsay’s just looks really budget. As it turns out, everything was pretty budget about Lindsay for Halloween. Not content to merely grift Oprah Winfrey (poor Oprah!), Lindsay somehow landed herself a gig “hosting” a Halloween party at a Connecticut casino. The gig was supposed to be simple enough – Lindsay would show up 10 pm, pose on the red carpet, hang out for a bit inside and she would get paid $50,000 for that. By the way, HAHA on that figure – I think Kim Kardashian probably gets something like $200,000 to show up at a party, and at least Kim gets invited to proper casinos in Las Vegas.

Anyway, Lindsay was supposed to show up on time and she would get an easy $50,000 to BLOW through. But of course this is the Cracken we’re talking about and seeing as how she’s already relapsed in a major way, it’s not a surprise to learn that crackheads are always pretty crackie:

Lindsay Lohan was paid north of $50,000 to host a Halloween party at a casino last night, sources tell TMZ — but she was so late … the casino wants a chunk of its money back.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Lindsay was paid to show up to Foxwoods casino in Connecticut at 10pm, but she didn’t arrive until 11:43pm.

When she finally did show up, we’re told she blew off the red carpet — where she was supposed to pose for photos and talk to fans — and walked straight into the party. We’re told Foxwoods is now trying to renegotiate Lindsay’s contract because the casino feels she screwed them over.

Lindsay didn’t completely drop the ball. We’re told she and co-host Floyd Mayweather Jr. judged the Halloween costume contest together and actually did a decent job. (FYI, Lindsay was dressed as Carrie and Floyd was dressed as Freddy Krueger.)

For what it’s worth, we’re told Floyd (who was paid about the same as Lindsay) was late too — but he made up for it by spending time with fans, signing autographs and taking photos. Lindsay, not so much.

I mean… for the love of God. I can’t even imagine what goes through her crack-addled mind at this point. MOVE THOSE PEOPLE, I’M LINDSAY LOHAN. Yes, we know. That’s why you’re getting paid $50,000 to be nice to people on a red carpet. This isn’t damn rocket science, you know. Anyway… how do you feel about the Cracken’s return to some good old fashioned crack shenanigans? Also: how g–damn dumb was this casino to give Lindsay the money upfront?! NEVER GIVE HER THE MONEY UPFRONT.

    this is escalating quickly

    “MOVE THOSE PEOPLE, I’M LINDSAY LOHAN” is my new favorite thing to yell in crowds.

  2. Quinn says:

    Wow, what a shocking story…I really thought she had it together this time.


    I really mean it.

    I promise.


  3. Alexandria says:

    For the love of God, STOP giving this creature chances and money!!! Anyone who works with her at this point deserves to be shafted by The Cracken.

  4. pam246 says:

    Actually the CT casinos (Foxwoods and Mohegun Sun) are major casinos not crappy hole in the walls. Yes I’m from CT. They weren’t dumb to give her money up front, they were stupid in hiring her in the first place. Which is why I have no sympathy for Oprah or anybody else who works with her. I don’t know why she gets so many chances and everybody keeps thinking she’s changed.

  5. Aussie girl says:

    For 50 G’s I would turn up 4 hours early. Shit i’d even help them set up, then stay till the end and help them clean up. This girl is biting the hand that feeds her. This is the only way she can make any $$ and she is screwing that up. Putting off any other desperado that will hire her forever fucking up ungrateful arse!!!

    • bettyrose says:

      I’d do it for $500 just cuz it sounds fun & that would be some fun extra spending cash.

    • Wrachul says:

      Exactly!! For 10 grand I’d do all that! It amazes me that people will still hire her, for anything at all. But they probably thought her notoriety would be worth the money.

    • Emily C. says:

      For that amount, I’d work for them for a year and consider myself lucky to be making such a good salary.

    • kibbles says:

      Most Americans – and most people on this planet – would be happy to make that much money in a year. It amazes me that people like Lohan and Kardashian get paid exorbitant amounts of money just to show up on the red carpet for a few minutes. These companies and corporations use the money we give to them to pay these celebrities thousands and give them free products while their employees make a pittance. This world is insane.

      • Decloo says:

        We are all aware of how many photographers show up to take Kim’s photo which is then posted all over the internet and all over every other type of media. It’s totally worth it for companies to get this level of exposure. It costs millions to make a commercial and put it on a TV that nobody watches any more. Attaching a company name to a fame whore is just good business sense. The ensuing revenues are paying those employee salaries. See, Kim and Crackie are just looking out for those less fortunate!

  6. Vera says:

    DUH! You don’t need to be Nostradamus to figure that out. Why would the casino give LL all the money in advance?

  7. swack says:

    Not even close to Carrie. Just looks like someone took red food coloring and threw it wherever they wanted to. Anyone who works with Lindsay right now should know what will happen. Don’t feel sorry for them. Until she straightens her act out (if she ever will), no one should hire her.

  8. Belle Epoch says:

    But people keep hiring her! Why should she change?

    What exactly was the Oprah deal? Follow LL around and film her new sober life? Since she’s clearly not sober, will Oprah pull the plug or will LL keep that money, too?

    Wonder if her lawyer ever got paid!

  9. eliza says:

    Why people still give her jobs is beyond me. Late? What does this trick have on her plate that would make her late?

  10. Nicolette says:

    She doesn’t need to dress up, she IS a walking Halloween costume all on her own.

  11. MeowuiRose says:

    That pisses me off. That’s more than a lot of people make in a year. So ungrateful and inconsiderate.

  12. Jaded says:

    Narcissists can’t be rehabilitated, it’s in their DNA to act like demanding, deceitful monsters. The whole world should just give up on LL and quit giving her a hand, she’ll only bite it.

  13. Kiddo says:

    That Mayweather guy did the same in being late. I wonder if they are renegotiating his pay as well. I imagine that celebs like the money, but look down on these type of events at the same time. Maybe it is something that comes to be expected? I recall other people being late for low level events. TMZ loves to do Lindsay stories.

  14. Garrett says:

    Of course she showed up late. No surprise here. It’s about time the world just give up on this girl. She will NEVER change.

  15. Eleonor says:

    Those who hire her know how it is going to be: if you book Lindsay Lohan for a party you know she will arrive 2 hours later. But they will get publicity for free, so no simpathy from me.

  16. Relli says:

    OMG Lindsay Lohan still has fans!?!?! Seriously that is the most shocking part of the story. I mean people are always throwing their cash in garbage pails so hiring her, paying her and her screw up should be expected. But that there are still people who want to see her in any capacity is wow, she should be grateful. (Spoiler she doesn’t care)!

    @ Vera, lol!

  17. jwoolman says:

    The lass did the same thing to Oprah. Showing up late, delaying production, etc. Just before Dina’s DUI, Oprah came to see Lindsay at Dina’s house to tell Lindsay that she was going to cancel the Lohanumentry project unless Lindsay got serious about it. In an interview, Oprah made it clear that she was prepared to fire the lass right on the spot unless she was convinced that she could and would stop messing things up for the project. But I bet Oprah wasn’t stupid enough to hand over the money in advance.

  18. bettyrose says:

    Gawd a casino in CT? Were the rich and famous leaving Manhattan in droves to hit that action?

  19. Bridget says:

    I found it interesting how disappointed Just Say Jenn was about all this Lindsay stuff. Obviously she’s a big fan of 2nd chances.

  20. lassie says:

    “For what it’s worth, we’re told Floyd (who was paid about the same as Lindsay) was late too — but he made up for it by spending time with fans, signing autographs and taking photos.”

    Were there a lot of takers for this guys autograph? Is he famous for something besides being a ‘Junior’? I’ve never heard of him, and I know of a lot of obscure hangers on.

  21. bluhare says:

    Oh, I do miss Linnocent on posts like this.

  22. Ginger says:

    So, let me get this straight…the casino hired a couple of former jailbirds to host their party? (Who on Earth is their PR person…or former I should say after this) LOVELY! And Floyd was classier than Lohan? UGH! I’m going to pretend I didn’t read this. (Plugs ears…LA LA LA LA LA!) Give me my eyeshades…I’m going back to bed.

  23. Bess says:

    White Oprah & ML Jr were also at this shindig with The Cracken.

    Also, Crackie’ s hair seems to be more strawberry blonde than red in the photos. That’s a bad sign. Crackie is at her worst when she’s blonde.

  24. Tara says:

    And this is why capitalism is a sham.

  25. Bridget says:

    @Lassie: Mayweather is a very, very famous boxer. He’d have more fans than Lilo.

    For what it’s worth, he’s also an epic a-hole.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      I have a friend who used to work at a bank out west and she had the opportunity to meet both Lohan and Mayweather on her job (different days, of course). She said Lohan was pleasant but a hot mess and that Mayweather was arrogant (and had a big entourage) but he was patient. He waited in line like everyone else and didn’t pull that “don’t you know who I am?” thing when asked for his ID.

      EDIT: I find it interesting that Mayweather did this gig. Fifty thousand dollars is chump change to him. Maybe because it was a casino? That dude loves to gamble. Didn’t he bet $30000 on a college football game not too long ago?

  26. chops 116 says:

    50,000!! w.t.f
    I work two jobs, office by day waiting tables at night, sometimes 16 hours a day, to make this much a YEAR! just enough to keep me and my child in a decent car and house, sacrificing time with her, and this chick gets this for a night??? with her history?? so over these inflated pay checks… especially for D listers

    sorry, tired from all my overtime to get Christmas money together…fml

  27. Buttercup729 says:

    I really was hoping she would get her sh*t together, but it’s not going to happen. Too many people keep giving her too many chances, so there’s no reason for her to straighten up & fly right. And who’s the idiot at the casino that authorized that check to be cut??

  28. emmie_a says:

    I feel zero sympathy for the casino because when you hire a (proven) loser, you’re going to lose.

  29. Julianna says:

    I want to call her a loser but she made more money in those hours than I did all year.

  30. lucy2 says:

    Are we sure that’s a Halloween costume? Looks like a typical Lohan Saturday night. Or Tuesday night.

    I have no sympathy for anyone who hires her, esp. if they’re dumb enough to give her money up front. But I do hope they can reclaim some of that payment if she didn’t mean the obligations of the contract.

  31. Jesusia says:

    I like the Carrie costume. Haven’t seen that one yet.

    This is what adults should do on Halloween – have Halloween parties and dress up in costumes. IMO, adults have no business going trick or treating.

  32. M says:

    I’m surprised people here don’t know who Merriweather is. Frankly, he needs the money much less than the Cracken. He has over $143 million liquid assets and just got paid $32 million for a heavy weight fight a few months ago. $50k is pocket change to him.

  33. Axis2ClusterB says:

    Any jackass who hires her gets exactly what they deserve when she effs it up.

  34. Meggin says:

    Reading stories like this just annoys me. The fact that celebrities get paid to just show up to places annoys me in general though. It’s sad that Lindsay is messing up her life so much though.

  35. Jag says:

    What I don’t understand – other than places keep hiring her – is that she’s paid upfront and the contracts apparently don’t contain clauses like “must be on time or payment is reduced,” or “payment reduced for not posing on red carpet and talking to fans,” or for her and the Kartrashians, “must stay entire length of contracted time.” Why don’t they do that?

  36. Ming says:

    What an entitled, arrogant a$$hat.

  37. Montréalise says:

    $50,000 and all she had to do was show up on time to host a party? That’s more than many people earn in a year. How many times does she have to pull this stunt (not show up on time, if she shows up at all, not doing what she was hired to do) before people stop hiring her?

  38. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    I am stymied by all the sources who keep proclaiming “she’s clean, but likes to party!”–is Oprah behind it? Its very clear she has not changed and is not clean (in any of its meanings), and yet, some sources keep propping her up as this bastion of hard-work-to-maintain-sobriety-starlet. WTF, people? WTF?

  39. Cool Phosphorescent Shimmer says:

    I hope the IRS is paying attention to all of these (undoubtedly) cash paydays.
