Lindsay Lohan often finds herself in trouble with the law, but this time it’s one of her party pals who is really in deep. Jacob Anthonisen, a 37-year-old Los Angeles art gallery owner and nightlife fixture, is a person of interest in the murder of his step-brother Steven John Simmons, whose decomposed body was found with a bullet in his chest in the backseat of Anthonisen’s Cadillac Escalade on Saturday. Anthonisen has not been heard from since late May, around the same time he posted a photo he took of Lohan on Instagram. It’s unclear when the pic was snapped because in it the actress’ hair is blonde, which she hasn’t been since March.
Lohan isn’t the only famous friend of Anthonisen, who spent two years in an Arizona prison for drug offenses before his 2005 release. In other photos he posted on Twitter and Instagram, he’s also shown hanging out with “Hustle & Flow” actress Taryn Manning, Mike Tyson, Emile Hirsch, and Gene Simmons’ son Nick.
This latest news caps off a week of drama for Lohan. Last Friday, a day before Simmons’ body was found in West Hollywood, the actress crashed her rented Porsche into an 18-wheeler on California’s Pacific Coast Highway on her way to film her upcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie, “Liz & Dick.” According to TMZ, Lohan was witnessed exiting the sports car on the passenger’s side, along with her assistant. At the hospital, she told police that she wasn’t the one driving, contrary to what her assistant and witnesses at the scene told them – and lying to police is an offense that could get her probation revoked. And if that wasn’t enough, a water bottle filled with alcohol was found in the trunk of her car. But Lohan dodged a bullet there because it is actually not illegal to carry an open container in a trunk.
