Lindsay Made A Miraculous Recovery, Will Be in Court This Morning

From TMZ:

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.

Lindsay Lohan Is Way Too Sick to Go to Court Tomorrow

It’s just that time of the year, guys. We’re all going to get sick. Me, I’ve got the stupidest cold ever right now. My head feels funny and I don’t want to do anything. Maybe you’ve had that awful flu. Maybe you caught malaria or diphtheria or syphilis or something, I don’t know. But the point is that people are just generally ill this time of year. And that includes beautiful and glamorous celebrities like Lindsay Lohan!

See, Lindsay has an upper respiratory infection. She has a doctor’s note and everything! I know that she has a doctor’s note because that’s what her new lawyer sent over to Lindsay’s judge in L.A. to explain why she won’t be in court tomorrow as required. He also sent some news article about how that flu epidemic hit New York a couple of weeks ago. You know, just to flesh everything out.

And yeah, TMZ got photos of Lindsay out and about over the weekend, shopping and smoking and having a grand old time. I know that when I’m sick enough to go to a doctor with a cold that I always feel like walking around for hours, too. Like, yeah, it feels like my head is going to fall off my body and my throat is going to collapse in on itself and every single ounce of fluid in my body is going to trickle out of my nose, but so what? Let’s get some shoes!

But ok, here’s the thing: Lindsay was really, really supposed to be in court. I don’t want to freak her out or anything, it’s just that she really was supposed to be there. And if the judge finds out that she wasn’t really sick – not that I’m saying she’s lying – it could be bad, bad news for Lindsay. It won’t be, but it could be. And that’s the important thing. Basically, the judge could issue a warrant for Lindsay’s arrest tomorrow if she wanted to. That’s all.

Chris Brown Kind of Just Compared Himself to Jesus

Ok, ok. Chris Brown posted this photo on Instagram last night. The caption was “Painting the way I feel today. Focus on what matters!” And here’s the photo:

Whoa. Whoa. Hold up. Chris Brown painted a picture of Jesus on the cross because he was painting the way he feels. Are we all getting that? He seriously just did that.

This is so much worse than when he compared himself to Tupac. I mean, I know you guys know who Jesus is, but can we really just take a moment to consider this? Chris Brown considers himself to be a Christian. That means that he thinks Jesus was the son of God. Jesus is Lord. Just to bring it to a more casual place, Jesus was a super peaceful guy who just wanted everybody to chill out and love each other. Jesus was awesome! Does that sound anything like Chris Brown?

But I’m really not the person to be discussing this, guys. After all, I’m obviously one of the many people who crucified Chris. You know, because calling an asshole an asshole is just like crucifixion. I’m just one of those bitches who refuse to believe how great Chris Brown is, and thousands of years from now, when Chris Brown is celebrated and adored, I’m going to be just another poor, stupid soul who was too blind to realize what I witnessed. I’m so glad we could clear this up!
