It’s been a hectic week for Linnocent, what with her cracked-out sentencing (three years of probation, ha!) and her partying at the Marmont, the release of tequila-and-antibiotic-soaked probation report, and all of those braless, selfless hours that she’s been mandated to work at the Women’s Center. Then, yesterday, there was this suspicious little item on Radar:
Lindsay Lohan has hired a new publicist in an attempt to rehab her image. The troubled starlet has hired Hollywood publicist Steve Honig of The Honig Company, whose clients include Fiore Films, the production company that is producing Lohan’s upcoming role in the mob bio-pic Gotti: Three Generations.
Honig will handle all of LiLo’s public relations and publicity. Lindsay hasn’t had a full-time publicist since she parted ways with Leslie Sloane several years ago.
Lindsay formally pled no contest Wednesday to a misdemeanor grand theft charge, and she’s eager to put the past behind her and move on.
In a statement to RadarOnline.com, the Mean Girls star says: “I am glad to be able to put this past me and move on with my life and my career. I support the judge’s decision and hold myself accountable for being in this situation. I have already started my community service at the Downtown Women’s Center and thank everyone there for their warm welcome. I hope to be able to fulfill my obligation without any press attention. I think the media spotlight should be on issues such as homelessness and domestic violence instead of on me.”
Lindsay has an uphill battle to stay out of trouble given her past history. Lindsay will be on probation for three years in connection with the grand theft.
Hiring a new publicist? How is she affording this again? Oh, right. She’s a hooker. Meanwhile, there’s some confusion as to whether Linnocent has been fired from Gotti: Three Generations, because she no longer appears on the cast on IMDB. The Gotti producer – the same one who sounded like Linnocent is giving him beejs on the regular – tells The Wrap that Linnocent is still attached to the film, but IMDB hasn’t been updated. Ten bucks says she never ends up doing it. All of those beejs for naught!
