Lindsay Lohan’s assistant says she doesn’t want Lindsay to die on her watch


Michael Lohan is continuing his quest to bring daughter Lindsay down. And really, at this point, that’s all I can call it: a quest. Not to help her, not to save her, but to bring her down to rock bottom. Which is very different than Lindsay hitting rock bottom on her own. Any father- even a really, really stupid one – who actually wanted to help his drowning daughter would do just about anything other than what Michael’s doing. Michael is supposedly saving his daughter by releasing all sorts of mortifyingly embarrassing (and mortifyingly personal) phone calls he’s taped with and about Lindsay, including her drugged out plea for help.

Now Michael’s given (probably sold) a tape of a phone call he recorded with Lindsay’s assistant, Jenni Muro. The call was made sometime in 2008 from Muro in Brooklyn to Michael in Long Island. Muro references having to relocate to New York for Lindsay’s “Ugly Betty” guest shoot. Lohan’s character appeared now and again over the course of two seasons, so it’s not possible to say exactly when it probably happened, but in late October of 2008 it was reported that the cast and crew were sick of dealing with her and were limiting her episodes, so it was probably before then. So the conversation is at least a year old.

In another explosive recorded audio tape obtained exclusively by, Lindsay Lohan’s assistant Jenni Muro reveals her fear that Lindsay was killing herself.

The taped phone call is between Jenni Muro and Michael Lohan. In it, Jenni angrily tells Michael her fears about Lindsay’s fragile state and expresses her opinion about the destructiveness of Lindsay’s then-romantic relationship with DJ Samantha Ronson.

“I am trying to save your daughter’s life every day,” Jenni tells Michael on the tape.

Showing the depths of her fear that Lindsay will harm herself, Jenni tells Michael that she wants to stop working for Lindsay “because I don’t want it on my watch either.”

Michael has publicly voiced his concerns for Lindsay’s life, and says he is trying to get her to admit that she has a prescription drug problem and get help before it is too late.

In the 2008 call placed from Brooklyn to Michael Lohan’s Long Island home, Muro also voices her disgust that she was forced to relocate to New York for Lindsay’s role on Ugly Betty.

Muro says: “I get a 5% commission on this entire TV show and it’s sick and disgusting and I’m here and I give up my boyfriend and my dog and my parents and my new place in LA and everything so that your daughter doesn’t kill herself, ok?”

Jenni also tells Michael that Lindsay’s relationship with Samantha Ronson was “unhealthy.” She said that Lindsay’s priorities were only Samantha, not work and not her family. She says Samantha was her “absolute addiction.”

All we can hear in the actual recording is Muro’s voice. There are muffled parts, and there is absolutely not a peep from Michael Lohan. At several points she’s clearly responding to something he’s said, so either Michael or Radar deleted his parts of the conversation. I find that very suspicious and strange. They did the same thing with a phone call between Michael and ex-wife Dina last week. It was all Dina talking about Lindsay and trying to get her into rehab, and none of Michael’s words. So no one can use anything else he says against him. That says a lot right there about who Michael’s really looking out for.

If you listen to the conversation, it’s clear that Muro is not randomly bitching and complaining, she’s defending herself against Michael’s accusations that she’s not doing enough for Lindsay (or for him), and that she’s trying to keep Michael from Lindsay. Over and over again Muro has to state that Lindsay has told her clearly that she does not want to see Michael, she does not want to see Dina, etc. Muro also says that the only person she wants to see is Samantha. It’s clear that Lindsay doesn’t love Samantha, she’s obsessed with her. Muro also tells Michael she thinks that’s because Lindsay’s never known love before, and now she can’t get enough of it. It’s a total dig at both Lohan parents, because she doesn’t say Lindsay’s never been in love before, but that she’s never known love before.

Muro never once defends Lindsay. She makes it clear that Lindsay is her boss and she is doing what she’s told and communicating her messages for her. She also makes it really clear that she loathes talking to and being harassed by Michael Lohan. I don’t know this woman but I feel sorry for her – she sounds immensely frustrated. It appears that Jenni is still Lohan’s assistant – Radar doesn’t refer to her as “former” and there’s nothing I can find about her being fired. Well, except for the fact that when Lohan’s last assistant quit, she stole a car and chased the girl’s mom through the streets of L.A., landing in jail and rehab. There’s no way she gets paid enough to deal with just Lindsay alone, let alone the rest of the Lohans. It does seem like – though she’s doing Lindsay’s bidding, which is her job – she’s very smart and with-it. Which is ultimately good for Lindsay.

When is Michael going to learn that he can’t embarrass Lindsay into rehab? All he’s doing is making sure he never sees his daughter again. This is seriously the kind of shi*t you never forgive.

Here’s Lindsay, predictably looking worse than ever, leaving Dominic’s Restaurant in Beverly Hills last night. Images thanks to .

    I wonder why these personal assistants do these jobs. There’s not enough money in the world to put up with this crap.

  2. Sigh. says:

    Then she better quit or close her eyes if she doesn’t want it to happen on her watch, at this rate.

    What-the-frig, man! Are there NO laws governing being taped without your knowledge, THEN releasing said tapes without your permission?

    Happymom — PA in LA is one of those jobs you can use to “get inside” where us common folk could never. It’s a stepping stone job, if done properly.

  3. princess pea says:

    If Muro is indeed still Lindsay’s assistant, these comments are going to cause royal hell, I bet. Despite Michael’s role in recording and releasing this conversation, Muro is saying some very negative things about her BOSS, always a bad idea… but especially bad if your boss is an unpredictable, narcissistic drug addict.

    I hope TMZ is ready with the cameras; there’s going to be an epic meltdown.

  4. cuppycake says:

    I know she dug her own grave but, jesus I feel so bad for Lindsay at times like these. Her father is really just poking at an infected wound.

  5. Trey says:

    better quit now then!


  6. mollination says:

    I like Jenni.

    I noticed that michael bleeped himself in the one where lindsay’s crying about nobody looking out for her, and I thought that was telling as all hell. Very creepy.

  7. Fat Elvis says:

    Ugh, Michael Lohan just gets more and more repulsive. Talk about a bottom feeder.

  8. Sumodo says:

    I say, if she dies on Muro’s watch, the paps and tabs should dig deep and give her some bounty money — after all, you know da beyotch is gonna tip them off for a corpse picture!

  9. Sumodo says:

    @Mollination — I got my avatar back. Look, Shecky’s up with your dog.

  10. Beth says:

    Michael is so stupid. Lindsay isn’t going get help because of embarrassment, even if she goes into rehab. You have to want help and Lindsay doesn’t. It’s obvious that he doesn’t want to help her and only wants money and publicity.

  11. Gloaming says:

    It was said years ago she was just a paycheck to them when she was a child actor, now this really proves that.
    No parent with an ounce of warmth would do this to their child.

  12. djork says:

    Nothin’ like a little born-again Christian charity. What a maroon!

  13. Obvious says:

    How do you not pity this poor girl? That is what she is emotionally.

  14. pickelhaube says:

    Is it just me, or does she look pregnant? I’ve seen a few pics of her lately and she’s got that bump in all of them! I certainly hope she isn’t, it might be the Antichrist or something in there….scary!

  15. YT says:

    I read somewhere that this is a former assistant and she states the tape is heavily edited and that things are out of context.

    I agree with your suspicions: “At several points she’s clearly responding to something he’s said, so either Michael or Radar deleted his parts of the conversation. I find that very suspicious and strange.” Sounds like Michael reworked the tape to suit himself.

  16. RAMONA says:

    You know I’m kinda tired of everybody saying Lindsay is going to “kill herself”! Are you kidding me? I see so many drug heads around and believe me, you can’t kill a Krack head….You see it all the time unfortunately, Car wrecks, mowing down pedestrians, Hell, you could drop 20 people from an airplane and the only one that would still be alive would be the Krack head, on the ground, kicking and scratching around looking for their Krack pipe!!
    So, no worries Lindsay, you’ll do just fine and live to a ripe old age…Just Puff Puff Give…

  17. S.V. says:

    I will never understand her reasons for wanting to be wasted all the time or chasing after SamRo.

  18. Mimi says:

    I think that Sam is actually a good grounded person that do her job and go out with her family and friends that’s probably her “meta” so Lindinsanity founds a person that is normal and in love with her even if she is a crack whore so she decides change her ways or at last go to rehab to be clean and then when she’s out she could be with her newfound love. But NOBODY that is a normal and grounded person can actually tolerate so much crap for so much time, so Sam finally have her last drop and walk away but addict people only get clean if they want help to get clean if don’t u will consistently try to help them and they will in the same consistence f..k every opportunity for then to change because they don’t want that like Linsanity say she’s ok they are always ok until the last dust end then they need u comprehension and obviously ur MONEY.
    Lindsay have the money so now she needs the only drug that she wants but is apparently not for sale in other words Sam so Lowhan go crazy and make scenes and go to parties that she’s not invade to try fin’s Sam or make headline’s to make her ex lover jealous to try comeback to her drug. Seriously how many times a person have to END a relationship before is actually finish? i never see so many end’s and come back’s without the person’s in the relationship go actually on a date is ridiculous but then again i’m talking about Linsanity. So i don’t have any compassion for a person that don’t want change her wrongs ways and get better and that think that to be a star is being in tabloids every weak for being a full of crap person even with parents like she have she could choose the right turn since she has already made the wrong turn so many times that she has become a specialist in rehab and escape her legal problems

  19. Bambi says:

    Is douchebag one word or two?

  20. WTF?!? says:

    Wow, Mimi. You’ve obviously put a lot of thought into this.
    @Bambi– it’s technically two words– Michael Lohan.

    As the personal assistant to a well-known actress, I can guarantee this bitch will be kicked to the curb. Of ALL the people to “confide” in, ML is not the guy.
    Money is not the issue, happymom– and confidentiality agreement or no, if you take on the position of PA, you are bound to protect the privacy of your charge.
    This was obviously an immature idiot who just wants to whine. I’m sure she’s well-compensated, and if she doesn’t want the responsibility of the position, she should STFU and find another line of work.

  21. snowball says:

    Pickelhaub, you see that kind of belly in anorexics when they start to regain weight. She also seems to have developed a really bad swayback.

    She’s still thin as a rail, so I’m doubting that she’s carrying any hellspawn.

    “So i don’t have any compassion for a person that don’t want change her wrongs ways and get better..” I left out the remaining blab because it was giving me a headache.

    Hopefully no one you love is ever in a situation even slightly like this one. I’d hate to be a person that simply cannot feel empathy for someone in Lindsay’s shoes, no matter how much of a f-up she is right now.

  22. la chica says:

    Michael Lohan has lost track of his own motive. i wonder if he still sees himself as the paragon of loving Christianity?

    maybe Lindsay might end up with some pity roles as a result of all this.

  23. Ana says:

    When she dies everyone will be talking about how tragic her life has been and blah blah blah. Gah.

  24. Rosanna says:

    Has any of you had an addict in their family? The ONLY way to get them to acknowledge their problem is to start telling everybody what they are doing for REAL, so that people stop believing the lies they say and trying to “help” them out without knowing jack of what is happening.
    Michael Lohan is a wacko but he cares about his daughter without ANY doubt. Nobody will accept to look like a jerk just to try to save her life.

  25. Yae says:

    I just remember the picture of Lindsay in Sam’s car. Someone is making a pretty penny off Lindsay’s emotional upheavals. And it’s usually the quiet people that aren’t caught on film. Or maybe just those people that seem CALM on film. Food for thought.

    Very sad.

  26. 6one9 says:

    This whole family needs “HELP”! Lindsay is old enough to know better by now and IF she does need ‘help’, then she should go get it. Seriously!! Her Dad needs to STFU already! We heard him ‘loud and clearly’.

  27. fizXgirl314 says:

    man I am starting to feel sorry for this girl. What is up with people constantly referencing her death? That can’t be pleasant… can’t people just let her self destruct on her own without being all morbid about it? besides, she’s young, her body can probably take the abuse for another 10-15 years… I really don’t think she’s gonna die anytime soon…

  28. Lia says:

    Why doesn’t Muro quit the job?? She can’t find anything out in LA where all of her near and dear are? I think she’s addicted to the hype and flashy lifestyle of being a celebrity’s assistant. NO amount of money would be worth living the hell she’s claiming she’s living. I don’t believe her.

  29. WTF?!? says:

    “Pickelhaub, you see that kind of belly in anorexics when they start to regain weight”

    Actually, you see it once they’ve lost so much weight their abdomens distend, NOT when they regain weight.
