Lindsay Lohan seems to have an excuse for everything. That cocaine in her pocket? She was wearing someone else’s pants. That necklace she stole from a jewelry store last year? They gave it to her on loan. That time she crashed her Porsche into an 18-wheeler? The brakes failed.
So naturally, when it was reported that she owes the famed Chateau Marmont $46,000 for a two-month stay (and tons of goodies from the mini bar), the 26-year-old shifted blame from herself and onto the producers of her Lifetime made-for-TV movie “Liz & Dick” – the same people who gave the down and out actress a second chance by giving her a role she really wanted (and a paycheck she really needed). A source told TMZ that Lohan assumed the film’s producers would be picking up her hefty tab, which is why she never bothered to pay it. It’s strange that the actress is just now acting shocked that there was a payment issue considering that the letter sent to her from the Hollywood hotel is dated July 31 … and she was kicked out of her room the very next day.
On Thursday, “Liz & Dick” producers responded to Lohan’s claims by clarifying that she was never told her hotel bill would be covered. In fact, they gave her a $5,000 advance from her $100,000 salary in late May so she could move into the Chateau Marmont – and it was made clear to her that that was all she would be receiving, reports TMZ.
Lohan likely has another big bill coming her way. A dressing room trailer previously owned by Elizabeth Taylor that was loaned to the actress while she filmed the Lifetime movie was returned to its owner completely trashed. "I was specifically told that it would come back in pristine condition and in even better condition than it was at that time," Angel Alger told CNN. But when she got it back after filming wrapped, there were cigarette burns all over the fabric, furniture, even on a picture of the late actress, and dishes and a mirror were broken. Alger, who estimates the damage to be $100,000, also says a rocking chair that once belonged to Taylor was missing. "Only a psychotic and rebellious person or people would steal irreplaceable museum belongings and leave it in this vandalized condition," Alger added.
Lohan’s rep’s response? “This has nothing to do with Lindsay. You should ask the producers about it."
In other words … it’s not Lindsay’s fault!
