Lindsay Lohan still owes $270k for canceled appearance fee from last year

It looks like Lindsay Lohan is planting stories in both TMZ and Radar Online. TMZ had a story over the weekend saying she would just happen to be spending Valentine’s day with her ex and the woman she had no idea she was moving next to, Samantha Ronson, but that they were “just friends” and planned to be at the same dinner party that night. Now Radar Online has a photo of Lindsay “sneaking out” of her accidental neighbor Sam’s house to return back to her adjacent rented townhouse on Valentine’s day. How did someone “happen” to catch Lindsay sneaking through the bushes home? Could Lindsay have perhaps told a paparazzo to be there and subsequently split the profits with him when they sold the photos to the highest bidder? Is Sam regretting not moving the hell out the minute Lindsay moved in?

In related news about Lindsay, Radar reports that there’s a star witness about to come forward in the case of the purloined necklace. A man is supposedly is going to testify that he wanted to buy it and was quoted a price of $800, not the $2,500 the store says it’s worth, which would make Lindsay’s crime a misdemeanor, not a felony. How convenient for Lindsay’s case and not at all suspicious. TMZ has a related story that the prosecutor believes the necklace is worth $2,500. I believe that Lindsay will squeak through yet again, as she’s done for the past several years. I could be pleasantly surprised, though.

Oh and after I wrote all that, a tip came in from reader Christina that Lindsay owes 200,000 euro, or around $270,000, for accepting a hefty appearance fee to go to the Vienna opera last year and then cancelling at the last minute. (To go shopping, natch.) The businessman who paid Lindsay to be his date, Richard Lugner, says she gave him about 10,000 euro back and he’s deciding whether to sue her for the rest. It’s unclear from the story whether the full fee he paid Lohan was 200,000 euro or whether he’s saying that he paid “below” 200,000 euro. Reports at the time had her being paid $150,000. Either way, it’s a hell of a lot of money and of course Lindsay absconded with it. This guy made the grave mistake of paying her upfront.

Lindsay is shown on 2/8 and 2/9/11. Credit:

    And the crack-head stories continues…WHY, oh why?

    At least her lips are getting back to normal

  2. OMJ says:

    But she’s innocent! After all, she dressed in white for her court appearance.

  3. eja102 says:


    no, not suspicious at all.

  4. gee says:

    Bitch looks prego in the picture where she’s walking. God willing, she isn’t.. but can you imagine?

  5. Praise St. Angie! says:

    yeah, with her, once the money is in hand she likely figures “hey, I got paid, the deal is done” and conveniently forgets that she didn’t do what she got paid to do. or, more likely, she probably figures no one is going to pay the court costs and waste the time coming after her.

    and I love how the “witness” is such a great boon to her case – if only to prove that the theft wasn’t a felony.

    first, it was “I was never in the store”, then it was “it was loaned to me and returned late” then it was “I couldn’t have stolen it because I had enough cash on me to buy it!” and now, with this witness, it’s “well, I DID take it but it was only a misdemeanor!”

    this family…

  6. Marjalane says:

    You know why these stories continue? Because hopefully if enough people see what a dirtbag crackwhore she is, they will join us in booing her the next time she decides to sashay her ass into front row seats at the Laker game, or even, (God forbid) she should be treated like the Joe average criminal she is, as she yet again, goes before a judge.

  7. dorothy says:

    Oh…but it’s not her fault. Just like the necklace, not her fault, just like the DUI..not her fault. Nor the drugs, or the alcohol…not her fault. However, the court system continues to condone and encourage this lack of responsibility because they never take any real action.

  8. Rita says:

    First of all, it’s common parlance within the trade for the guy to pay up-front. (Least ways that’s what I hear)

    Second, a girl is worth what she can get.

    Third, 1 Euro = $1.35 US: Isn’t it a shame what’s happened to the exchange rate.

  9. brin says:

    I need to get high just reading about this crackhead hustler.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Spot on Praise – the ever changing story shouldn’t sit well with a jury.
    I hope that guy sues her, though he was stupid to pay up front (or at all, ew). If the Lohans can sue for a commercial using the common name of Lindsay, he should be able to sue her.

    At this point it’d probably be easier to ask who Lindsay HASN’T stolen something from.

  11. dread pirate cuervo says:

    So what if that guy was quoted $800? That’s not what they were going to charge LiLo. Most of the time celebs get shit for free, so I commend them jacking the price up on her. That said, someone needs to check this guy’s balls for LiLo’s 1.49 brand self tanner or whatever it’s called. This new twist is shady as hell.

    Oh & European dude needs to get his money back!

  12. nanster says:

    Sheesh – this girl can’t seem to do anything right. I can’t believe how entitled she thinks she is – and she’s also a complete moron. Not a good combination…

  13. macey says:

    Ya gotta love David Letterman’s LL mention on the top ten @ the Grammys and Jay Leno’s take on all this.

    Heres video from Leno

    And I dont doubt for a minute that this new witness is getting a payoff from pappa crackhead. I would almost like to be a fly on the wall to hear the prosecutors shoot down and expose every lie they’ve been selling to ROL and TMZ.

  14. Boey Jellodonna says:

    Sunlight and Lohan do not mix very well, this is a girl best viewed in dank, poorly-lit clubs.

  15. T J Hooker says:

    I hear Lilo was selling the necklace to a Mr Ross from Glasgow!

  16. Jules says:

    Rita, the exchange rate really sucks when you live in Germany and you get paid in dollars but pay rent, utilities, etc. in euros!

  17. sapphire says:

    Typical Radar and TMZ. Take minor details and blow them into a “breaking story” when it’s a slow news day. The surprize witness is hardly that and not exactly credible. It’s a jewelry store folks- insurance and inventory have reported and estimated value. Plus weigh the damned gold, adjust for purity and do the math. Not that freaking hard.

  18. brittney says:

    So escorts’ prices are now called “appearance fees”…?

  19. TQB says:

    Uhm, are we just not going to talk about the fact that she’s now selling herself as an “escort?”

    Oh wait, I’m sure this was just “character study” for Inferno. You’re welcome, Dina.

  20. Marie says:

    OMG thank you macey for that link, I died laughing!

  21. Ruby Red Lips says:

    You know I used to think Sam R was a pawn in Lindsay’s game, but c’mon, the girl isn’t stupid, she knows how Lindsay rolls. I know think Sam is almost as bad as Lindsay 🙁

    Of course she’ll squeak through, she always does. Why the F*ck doesn’t the court just give her a free pass as this will be the ultimate ending in this case for our little delusional crack whore

  22. Boey Jellodonna says:

    Anyone stupid enough to give a Lohan cash up front deserves to get ripped-off.

  23. sheri says:

    Why do I hate her so much. She might as well do porn or become a prostitute. She seems filthy to me.

  24. Pete says:

    @Jules #16

    Why do you get paid in dollars, do you work for the armed forces?

  25. dan says:

    @ rubyredlips

    I don’t think sam has to be a pawn or stupid. As for being as bad thats a bit rich considering she has no known rehab stays, never been booked into a jail, no dui’s, probation, no criminal record or problems getting to work on time.
    To me she seems like a normal person who happened to fall in love with someone who is deeply troubled and an addict. It happens..
    Lindsay is surrounded by handlers, yes people and crazy parents and i just get a sense of sam being one of the few people in her life who is real and doesn’t pander to her entitlement. I think thats part of the reason lindsay is so hung up on her.

  26. metatrix says:

    I feel absolutely ZERO sympathy for the business man. He deserves what he got for being creepy, lecherous, and stupid enough to pay Lindsay Lohan that much (or any) money to be his ‘date’. This guy is not a victim…he’s an obscenely wealthy man who takes advantage of young women and isn’t even slightly ashamed of it. He’s just a john who is upset that he didn’t get his money’s worth from the escort he hired. Boo freaking hoo.

  27. Dani says:

    She is going to be enabled right into the grave one day. Sooner or later everyone pays for their misdeeds. Of course when that happens, it won’t be her fault. Perhaps that can be her epitaph on her grave stone.

  28. CB Rawks says:

    The necklace question is easy, just have the thing independently valued by a reputable jewel expert.

  29. MarenGermany says:

    isnt there a law against buying people to make false claims in court???

    so sick of this lying little skank.
