Was Lindsay Lohan’s latest crackie jewel heist just an insurance scam?

Last week, Lindsay Lohan managed to pull off another cracked-out jewel heist. You know how I know that she pulled off a crack-heist? Because she’s been crack-denying it ever since, which is proof-positive from where I sit. So, over the weekend, Lindsay had the nerve to tweet PHOTOS of her jewelry. For real! She tweeted, “Cleaning MY jewels :) …… I love feeling like Elizabeth @DameElizabeth @damelindsay” and said she was cleaning her jewelry while watching The Avengers. These are the photos:

CB was like, “Hm, I wonder what other use that plate has?” and CB also pointed out the “Jesus Saves” pillow. This crackhead… I just don’t even know. But it totally gets worse. Because how could it not? TMZ reports:

Lindsay Lohan is more than just a witness to an alleged burglary that went down in the Hollywood Hills last Sunday … law enforcement sources tell us she is a “person of interest,” but the case may now be over.

Law enforcement sources tell us they are not ready to call Lindsay a suspect, but they are suspicious of her actions at a house party where 2 watches and an expensive pair of sunglasses — total value $100,000 — supposedly went missing. We’re told Lindsay let 2 friends into the house and cops think when they left they took the goods … and she may have been in on it.

But now there’s a twist in Lindsay’s favor. We’re told the owner of the house has recanted his story and written a letter to cops saying nothing was stolen. Of course, it flies in the face of his actions Sunday night when he called the cops and made the theft report.

Michael Lohan tells TMZ, “After personally speaking with the homeowner, there was NOTHING stolen from his home. Lindsay has no involvement and the owner has told the cops that.”

We’re told as of now the matter is still under investigation, but if the “victim” recants, it’s unlikely the case will proceed.

[From TMZ]

Jesus, how did they manage that? Did the homeowner (and crack-burglary victim) decide to recant because of…? Drugs? Prostitution? A cracked-out payoff? My first thought was a potential payoff, but really, does Lindsay have any money left to use for a pay off? Or was all of this some kind of insurance scam? Oooh… that fits.

Meanwhile, people are talking about an interview Shirley MacLaine gave to The Guardian a few days ago in which she name-checks Jennifer Aniston and Lindsay Lohan in nearly the same breath. Here’s the relevant portion:

[Shirley MacLaine] was having lunch with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux the other day, she says, and by the time they finished, there were paparazzi outside the restaurant. “I felt so bad. I think the restaurant called them.”

She will have a tough time drumming up much sympathy here. From the civilian point of view, someone such as Aniston is assumed to be complicit in her own exploitation.

“I think Diana did. And there are people who get a kick out of manipulating and moulding and sculpting their public image. But I do not think that people like Jennifer and Justin do.”

What about someone like Lindsay Lohan? She and MacLaine were slated to do a movie together but it didn’t come together. They had a few meetings, though.

“And, you know, her conversation was 90% about her upbringing. Her parents. Now, she’s also a master manipulator, and it’s not hard to figure out I’m interested in all that stuff, so she was maybe using it. I don’t know. I can’t advise any of the young ones, because I don’t know what their background was, but I would suggest that anyone who wants to be famous more than anything – there’s a problem.”

Even if it coincides with real talent?

“Well, that’s her. But…” MacLaine sighs. “Too much damage as a child.”

[From The Guardian]

So Shirley assessment of Lindsay Lohan is that she’s a master manipulator and she had a damaged childhood. Both of which are true, I think, except that I no longer think Lindsay is a “master” at anything. But maybe I’m wrong – I can see through her stupid crack-manipulations, as can most people, but for whatever reason, the justice system keeps buying her act. So maybe she is a master manipulator when it counts.

    I keep all my best jewelry in plastic baggies. I know Elizabeth Taylor did that, too.

    • megs says:

      ME TOO!!! lmao

    • Samigirl says:

      That’s what I’m getting at. Seriously? Little coke/nickel sack baggies?

      • Bitca says:

        That’s what made me–excuse the pun–seriously crack up: because 1/2 the bling is zipped into EZY-Dose bags! Usually intended for storing meds when traveling. A perfect choice for *all* her treasures…

      • Kathryn says:

        HAHA the bag literally say EZY-DOSE PILL POUCH

    • Deryn says:

      I’m no Lindsay fan, beLIEVE me, and I’m waiting for the day her dumb ass gets photographed wearing whatever was purportedly stolen. However. I was once talking to a jeweler about how best to store some jewelry in a safe deposit box, and did I need cases or something to protect it from humidity or what, and he just sighed and asked why I wanted to spend all that money, then told me to put each piece in a ziploc bag. So there’s that.

    She’s a sad joke and so is the CA justice system.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      TMZ now reporting she is an official SUSPECT!

      We should have done a pool.

      If she gets charged, will she FINALLY go to jail for a long time?
      We can hope, no?

  3. logan says:

    Hey if Michael Lohan said there was nothing stolen from the house we all just need to let it go cause, well Michael Lohan is all about truth. And if I made 2 million dollars this year, I too would travel with my Jesus saves pillow and keep my jewels in plastic baggies. She is the gift that just keeps on giving. We all know that crackies need their plastic baggies!!!!

    • RocketMerry says:

      “After personally speaking with the homeowner, there was NOTHING stolen from his home”
      But only after “personally speaking” to the homeowner.

      Also, my guess is Lindsay has some dirt on some political/juridical big shot that she is blackmailing. She truly IS (and likely has…) the gift the keeps on giving. She’ll never get any punishment until the big shot is taken down. Where is the FBI when you need it?!

  4. MoxyLady007 says:

    Is she pirating The Avengers? It’s not out on DVD.

    • CG says:

      OMG I wondered that too! I was like, “Wait a minute, that doesn’t come out for another month. WTF????” If she blew someone to get her crack paws on an advance copy, I’m going to be hella pissed!

    • Ann Emmess says:

      If you’d believe, I’m trying to sync re-viewing with a dear friend in Australia. It was out a month earlier for her, so I guess that’s now?

  5. Beutimous says:

    That emerald ring and diamond necklace though… jealous haha
    Seriously though this probably was a scam, They probably invited Lindsay to sleep over knowing everyone would buy that she was the crack burgler when they called the cops. Maybe a rare case of Linocent being innocent lol

  6. yael says:

    i wonder how long until the lohan family threatens to sue shirley maclaine for defamation.

  7. HillbillyintheCorner says:

    Girls , girls …..look at those pictures really look ….she is senting a message…to the homeowner and the cops …..
    the pillow is the symbol for her daddy..he always spouting off with Jesus Saves. the jewerly includes two watchs..neat ! …and the dish and the baggies will we know what they mean… this was a FU to the cops and a reminder to the home owner what daddy said on the phone…I imagine that the drug referance means daddy will tell the cops about the drug dealings going on in that party were a minor was present…
    Stupid fool….she is a stupid full of it fool…If a little old lady in Carolina can figure the message out then so can the Police….
    But wait…we are talking about LA Cops I may have to take that back….

    • Boo says:

      Yeah, but how is it that she herself wouldn’t be in trouble for bringing a minor into that environment? It doesn’t make sense to me: if she threatens to blow the whistle on the drugs, doesn’t she also implicate herself?

      And while I am here, is that an ugly-ass bedspread or an ugly-ass carpet?

      • G says:

        I love the message idea.

        It’s more like this. Hi homeowner. you are going to find your stuff on the front stoop and you are going to call the police and say everything is fine.

        If you don’t, I’m going to call the police and have you and all your cracked out friends investigated for your crack parties, distribution and involving minors in all night crack parties.

        I am also going to publish your name and address and the tabloids are going to repeat and rehash your name till it goes down in history linked to Lindsay’s.

  8. Thanks a lot for providing individuals with an extraordinarily nice possiblity to read critical reviews from this blog. It is usually so enjoyable and as well , packed with a great time for me personally and my office fellow workers to visit your web site the equivalent of 3 times in 7 days to find out the latest stuff you have got. And of course, I am also at all times motivated with your astonishing creative concepts you give. Some 2 areas in this article are in fact the best we have ever had.

  9. Imelda says:

    It KILLS me that she has so many Fendi bags and other great ones that she probably treats like crap.
    Unless of course she’s on a coke induced cleaning buzz (which is obviously whats happening here)then maybe she takes a rag to ‘em.
    See if she left any coke crustations lying around!

  10. A-rod says:

    Good grief! Look at that plate! Couldn’t she rub the coke residue on her gums before snapping this photo?

  11. Macey says:

    This was clearly a case of a shake down/extortion and/or threat of exposing personal information about the home-owner. Im sure ML threatened to dig and expose everything about the guy just like they went after poor James the truck driver who was doing nothing more than earning his pay, something the Lohans know nothing about. This is a perfect example as to why the Lohans will always be the laughing stock of Cali and NY. everyone around them knows their game but yet there are still ppl dumb enough or too drugged up enough to not know better than to associate with them. I really cant wait for the day when they mess with the wrong person that can expose them all for the criminal and con artist they are.

  12. jwoolman says:

    But the TMZ story obviously came straight from Michael Lohan, who has a long history of making things up as he goes along to protect Lindsay. I haven’t seen any followup verifying that the stuff was “found” or that the case is closed. Has anyone else? Why would a rich guy bring in the police to question guests if there were any risk they would find something else incriminating? I would assume that any drugs were consumed or flushed first. Cody was already questioned so there’s nothing to hide there (and he was with an adult sister with permission of his mother).

    I could see the insurance company convincing a certain party to return the loot or even to buy it back at a big discount. An insurance scam by the owner is always possible, but to take that risk for only $100,000? Why not go for a few million instead? Relying on Lindsay’s presence to make it plausible sounds like quite a stretch. He only indicated that he suspected two mystery guys she brought with her. Was she even invited? She crashes parties a lot. Why would her father call the guy at all? The police said she wasn’t a suspect. Was he making threats or what? Was he just being his usual idiot self with no particular plan in mind other than picking up a few bucks from TMZ?

  13. Cathy says:

    I’m betting insurance scam, and they plotted with the cracken to invite her and those other people to make them look like the number one suspect. I say they used them and her younger brother as part of the scam. Perhaps she agreed to it for a share of the insurance payment profits. Then for some reason or another it fell through. Just another crack drama for her to try and make a buck to pay whoever she owes money off. She looks awful in those pictures, that coat is nasty.

  14. Bess says:

    Interesting that Blohan got her woman-beating, convicted felon father involved in this as well. He’s spent a lot of time in a courtroom & probably thinks he’s smarter than any lawyer.

    I don’t think Lohan would agree to allow her name to be used for an insurance scam, as she’s in the midst of a comeback. IMO, she invited the 2 guys to the party to steal stuff & is now blackmailing the home owner.

  15. lucy2 says:

    Thought Lindsay hated her father and had nothing to do with him? Hmm.

    Anyway, definitely either an insurance scam, or they really did steal it and then threatened the homeowner with something major.
    Some day this trash is going to steal from the wrong person…

  16. Rio says:

    I hate that I know it, but that’s not a “Jesus Saves” pillow– it’s a novelty change purse. The other side has two swooning ladies on it and the slogan, “Lookin’ Good for Jesus”. You can get them at Ricky’s and yes, I used to have one.

  17. jak415 says:

    how does “Diana” get thrown in there? Is she referring to Princess Diana and claiming she would call in the paparzzi and is responsible for her ultimate demise? maybe i read that part wrong…confused.

    Either way, i am tired of lindsay. Maybe she should go volunteer for Americorps or maybe the peace corps for a few years. She needs to open her eyes.

  18. TheOriginalMaxi says:

    TMZ just offically said Lindsay and her “friend” are suspects haha

  19. skuddles says:

    Wait, how can this be an insurance scam if the guy isn’t willing to see it through??

    Lohan manages to blow yet another problem under the carpet…

    Ahhh….KISSES right back to YOU HoLo!!!


  21. booboocita says:

    I’ve seen those photos several times, and I lurve the pink faux fur coat, particularly paired with gold lamé dress and gold clutch. But not on her. The pale shimmer of the coat and dress just throw all that bronzer into high relief and make her look dirty — literally dirty, as in covered in dirt, not sleazy. Although sleazy fits, too. I’d love to see those clothes on someone with pale skin and fair hair, say, Dakota Fanning or Amanda Seyfried.

    • Lisalou says:

      The bronzer really makes the suspicious white ring in the inside of her nose in that last picture way more obvious
