In a move that I’m almost entirely positive was taught to her by her mother, Dina Lohan, when she was but a wee child helping her mother lift forties out of a 7/11, Lindsay Lohan has once again shifted the blame in yet another public scandal. On Wednesday, Lindsay was banned from Chateau Marmont because she couldn’t be bothered to actually pay for anything, so instead she tried to blame it on the producers of Liz and Dick, who she claimed promised to foot the bill. Except it turns out that never happened at all. TMZ reports …
TMZ broke the story, Lindsay racked up a hotel bill approaching $47,000 but stiffed the Chateau Marmont. As a result, Lindsay was banned from the hotel property. Lindsay now says she thought her Liz and Dick producers would pay the bill, but sources very familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the production NEVER promised to foot the bill. Sources connected to Lindsay tell us … producers did give Lindsay a one-time only, $5,000 advance against her salary in late May so she could move into the hotel, but that was it. There was never even an insinuation the production company would pay her hotel bill.
You know, I’ve joked about this before, but I honestly think that Lindsay fully believes that she doesn’t have to pay for anything because she’s Lindsay Lohan. Remember that time she screamed at someone to move a traffic cone for her because she’s LiLo? Yeah, that happened. Don’t even try and tell me the following scenario won’t happen eventually:
Salesperson: All right ma’am, that will be $6,829 please.
Lindsay: Here you go!
Salesperson: … This is a napkin with “I’m Lindsay Lohan” written on it.
Lindsay: Keep the change!
Salesperson: Why does this napkin smell like gin and smoke?
First, we have some good news for Lindsay Lohan: Turns out, cops won’t be pressing charges against her because Sam Magid, the guy whose house she ransacked while high on Ambien basically said that anything he owns is hers, because at this point LiLo is mostly teflon. Yay! And now here comes the bad news: Turns out, Lindsay ran up a tab of almost $50,000 while staying at Chateau Marmont and has refused to pay the bill, now she’s been banned from the hotel. TMZ reports …
TMZ has obtained a letter from the General Manager of the hotel where John Belushi infamously OD’d … The GM notes the hotel repeatedly requested payment for the 47 days Lindsay stayed there during the months of June and July … but LiLo never anted up. Lindsay — who had been living at the hotel — was ordered to get her stuff out by 12 PM August 1. She was then banned from the entire property. Now get this … We also got the itemized bill for June and July, and it’s clear — Lindsay spends like a drunken sailor.
— Minibar charges for the 47 days: $3,145.07. The highest daily tab … July 1st — $502.43!!!
— Cigarettes: $686. She blew through 49 packs in 47 days at $14 a pop
— Chateau Candle: $100
— Chateau restaurant: On July 4 Lindsay racked up a $1,992.07 bill. On top of that, she spent $685.96 that day on room service.
It should probably be noted that Lindsay earned something like $2 Million bucks last year, so it’s not like she couldn’t afford to pony up. So instead, I’m just going to assume that Lindsay thought she was so pretty, famous and popular that they were actually going to pay her for staying there. “Hello, I’m international superstar and new ELizabeth Taylor, Lindsay Lohan. I’m here to pick up my check for blessing your hotel with my natural beauty and acting talent. Now if one of you would be so kind as to carry me back to my throne, I have to throw my empties at the commoners.”
