Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina took the last flight out of JFK last night and jetted to L.A. after being warned she’d be a wanted woman if she was a no-show in court this morning.
Lindsay — who is not just broke but deeply in debt — waited in her car at the airport (above) until the last minute … then flew first class on American Airlines and landed at around 12:30 AM.
We’re told Lindsay went into a panic after we posted our story Tuesday and started calling everyone to find out if we were right … that the judge would probably issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn’t show. Our Lindsay sources say she was pleading with Shawn Holley — the lawyer she fired — to come back on the case, saying she didn’t like her replacement — New York lawyer Mark Heller.
Holley made it clear days ago … she’s off the case, so it’s now up to Heller, who clearly started off on the wrong foot by submitting the doctor’s note, along with a New York Post article saying a lot of people in NYC had the flu.
Heller has another problem — the lawyer he got to sponsor him to appear in a California court has never met him, and it’s possible the judge could deny him the right to represent Lindsay.
So Lindsay could be lawyerless … and you know what they say about a client who reps herself …
This should be a good one, guys. We’ve got four more hours till Lindsay is due in court, and I’ve just got a good feeling about it. Not for her, obviously, or at least she won’t think so. But I mean, she’ll at least be wearing some inappropriate courtroom attire, which is always a good time. There’s a lesson, friends: always look for the silver lining. Because even if justice is just a figment of our imaginations anymore, Lindsay still won’t be wearing a bra to court.
