Lindsay Lohan continues to get herself into legal trouble. This time, the actress got herself an arrest warrant, after flying to Cannes and then saying she’d lost her passport — making it impossible for her to attend a Thursday court hearing.
The judge, who had previously warned LiLo she would issue a bench warrant if the actress was a no-show, declared, “If she wanted to be here, she could have been here. She was ordered to be here — and she’s not here.”
The starlet, who has now obtained a new passport, will surrender herself to authorities upon returning to the U.S. and pay $100,000 bail. She’ll soon be sporting her signature accessory, an alcohol-monitor ankle bracelet, and have to submit to random drug tests weekly to stay out of jail. Missing her court-ordered alcohol education classes, a condition of her probation, was the reason for the court date in the first place.
“She has to take this seriously,” said the judge. “I warned her before.”
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like she’s doing so. The troubled tabloid fixture blames everyone but herself for the mess she’s in, sources tell TMZ. Lindsay even says the reason she hasn’t completed alcohol education classes is because the course instructor made her “uncomfortable” with text messages about wanting to get together.
And as for the passport debacle, Lindsay evidently believed she was doing her best to resolve it. Radar Online obtained a mass e-mail she allegedly sent to all her contacts, begging, “I need my friends, and people I work with to PLEASE help me get on a private plane tomorrow by at least 5pm. This is such a horrible thing that’s happened to me and extremely unfortunate. My passport’s been stolen and the day before my court hearing. I would never ask such a thing, but if there’s anything that I could ever ask of anyone, it would be to help me with this. I must get back on a jet to L.A. tomorrow.”
Well, come on, Your Honor, you have to admit it’s a real stroke of bad luck to find yourself without a private jet.
Another day, another scandalous revelation from Courtney Love. The outspoken singer, who recently blabbed that she had an affair with Brit rocker Gavin Rossdale, tells an Irish magazine that rumors she had a same-sex fling with a supermodel are true.
“It was Kate Moss,” the Hole singer says. “She doesn’t care.”
“Kate wasn’t doing a lot of drugs,” Courtney adds. “It was just a thing that happened in Milan in the ’90s. It happened and it was fun and whatever. And she talks about it and so I hope she doesn’t get mad that I outed her about it. I feel like such a kiss and tell. Kate’s great, though! Kate’s a good friend of mine. I almost bought her house in [London].”
Wonder if this public declaration will affect the friendship?
After three years together, Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper have given up on trying to make their long-distance relationship work, at least for now. The “Mamma Mia!” costars “have been on and off for a while — and right now they’re taking a break,” an insider told People magazine. “But they’re great friends and could still get back together.”
Maybe it’s just because we’ve got Lindsay Lohan — Amanda’s “Mean Girls” costar — on the brain, but we can’t help but wonder if this has anything to do with Dominic being sighted with his arm around LiLo at a party in Cannes.
