Well, it’s happened: Lindsay Lohan is completely free and clear and off probation for the first time in EIGHT YEARS. That’s right! On Thursday, a judge bought the load of crap that Lindsay actually finished her 125 hours of community serviceduring a slapdash week at a daycare center in Brooklyn and signed off on her freedom.
Lilo’s lawyer,Shawn Holley, did the honors in court Thursday, getting the word from Hizzoner that Lindsay’s in the clear.
As we first reported, Lindsay did what we thought was impossible … completing 125 hours of community service in what looked like a probationary marathon … every day, 8 hours a day, for more than 2 weeks.
The stakes were high … if Lindsay didn’t get the job done, she was probably going to jail.
If you’re trying to do the math: Lohan’s probation stemmed from a 2012 reckless driving case where she lied to police, but she’s been on probation since her 2007 run-in with the law for drug possession and DUI that landed her in a Lynwood, Calif. jail for 84 minutes.
With these charges cleared, Lohan can go back to being famous for … you know, acting.
Well, except that it’s doubtful Lindsay will ever have a respectable acting career again. That ship sailed years back and she wasn’t on it, so… yeah. I’m sure she’ll stay in the news for all the trouble she gets in to in future. When she can’t book roles, she’ll get booked in jail. Mark my words.
I know people are still batshit over Mean Girls, even though it came out 9 years ago now, and I can vaguely see why. It was written by Tina Fey, Rachel McAdams is in it, pre-drug-addled Lindsay Lohan is in it, and yeah, it’s pretty hilarious and all that. I mean, I don’t know that it deserves the god-like status it’s given, but I can dig it. Which is why I think you’ll dig this deleted scene that was just released:
I can sorta see why they cut it, to be honest. Though I always welcome Amy “Cool Mom” Poehler in any form.
Well, I have to say, I really didn’t think Lindsay Lohan was going to make it (and frankly, I still think she probably hasn’t). She had over 100 hours of community service to complete in just over a week and somehow, she did it! I mean, she officially did it, and her lawyer’s ready to prove it at court tomorrow. After that happens, Lindsay’s officially a free woman.
We just got word from the prosecutor, Chief Deputy Terry White, who confirmed Lindsay put in nearly 8 hours a day for several weeks without a break to get the job done.
Lindsay didn’t have any time to spare. Her lawyer, Shawn Holley, will be in court Thursday with proof that the 125 hours were completed.
So tomorrow marks a new chapter in Lindsay’s life … it will be the first time in nearly 7 years she’s off probation.
Raise you’re hand if you’re pretty sure this is complete and utter bullshit and you don’t for a single second believe that Lindsay Lohan actually did anywhere near 125 hours of community service in about 10 days. Yeah, I thought so.
Of course, celebs love bullshitting people, and she’s rich, white, and famous, so no doubt this’ll be signed off on and she’ll be on her way. Ah well, at least justice tried, even if it didn’t prevail.
Lindsay Lohan is in a bit of a pickle, to put it nicely. To put it not so nicely, bitch is screwed. In case you weren’t aware, Lohan has been lying about her community service hours. She was supposed to do community service at a Brooklyn daycare center. She hasn’t been. Now she’s on a massive time crunch to complete 115 hours of community service by May 28. If she doesn’t, she may go to jail. For realsies.
But of course, dear Lohan isn’t going to accept any responsibility. She’s going to pull a Polanski and flee the country. And where she is she going?
We know Lindsay is keenly aware of the looming May 28th deadline, and she knows there’s a real chance she won’t complete her required hours. We also know she’s been told she’s going to jail if she falls short, and this time she actually believes it.
So Lindsay has made it clear to friends and family … if she doesn’t get it done, she won’t go back to California for her court hearing. She says a very rich friend has a hotel in Monaco and has given her carte blanche to stay indefinitely, and she’ll take him up on the offer.
Thing is … she can’t be extradited for a reckless driving misdemeanor, so authorities can’t touch her.
Well, isn’t that just lovely. Must be nice to have a rich friend with a hotel. Does she think she’s going to be like Eloise, or that this will be some wacky super special Wes Anderson moment?
Girl, you are not Grace Kelly. What the hell are you going to do in Monaco??? Man, I used to think it was sad how far she’s fallen, but at this point, fall away. She’s been given so many chances. She’s had so much time to do this community service. She just outright refuses to step up and take responsibility. Jail her.
Well, this is certainly… something. Lindsay Lohan is back in New York to complete over 100 hours of community service, and though she lied about when she arrived, she’s there now and ready to get down to business. Incidentally, she’s also ready to explore Islam, as she’s been walking around carrying a copy of the Quran. And, of course, she’s been posting Arabic phrases and whatnot on her social media for a while now:
Despite reading the Muslim text, she is apparently not “fully converting” to Islam.
A spokesperson for Lohan told The Independent: “To my knowledge she is not considering fully converting to Islam, but I know she has been taking a keen interest in the Arabic culture of late.”
I love that Lindsay’s spokespeople are not even pretending to entertain her bullshit. Plus, you and I both know “taking a keen interest” is code for something Lindsay’s fixating on until she gets tired of it and moves on to the next thing. And hey, we all did that… when we were teenagers. Lindsay is 28. It’s messy.
Of course, this isn’t to say that people can’t discover spirituality/religion and convert, but I’m sorry, I can’t take anything Lindsay says/does seriously.
I know this is going to be a massive shock to you all, but it seems Lindsay Lohan has a serious problem with telling the truth. As in, she doesn’t do it. You know how Lindsay claimed on Monday that she was back in New York and getting started on her community service at that Brooklyn daycare because she was so “excited to help”? Turns out, she wasn’t actually in New York at all when she made her post to social media. She didn’t ACTUALLY turn up until Tuesday afternoon, meaning that’s two less days she’s been working on those 115 hours that need to be done in 15 days. Lovely.
Lindsay Lohan told a BIG FAT LIE when she said she was back in New York on Monday and ready to do her community service — cause she was spotted arriving there on Tuesday!
Lindsay was seen getting dropped off at a hotel in the city — chauffeur driven with assistant in tow, of course. Our Lohan sources confirm … she just touched down on U.S. soil a few hours ago, which is bad for a couple of reasons.
First of all … legal matters. LiLo is clearly NOT at the Brooklyn daycare center where she’s supposed to be completing her remaining 115 hours of community service. Her deadline is May 28. Tick tock.
Secondly … on Monday morning she said, “Happy to be home in nyc with my family and friends” Now it’s clear she was still in London when she posted that on social media.
Lindsay has always been a liar – well, for as long as she’s been an addict, anyway. Don’t you remember how much she lied during her documentary series? She was full of constant excuses and lies about what she was doing, why she wasn’t doing the things she was supposed to do, etc. There’s no way this community service is getting done, and since the judge has pretty much promised to put out a warrant for her arrest if it’s not, things could get interesting!
A judge recently told Lindsay Lohan that she needed to re-do (or, you know, do in the first place) over 100 hours of community service by May 28th. And while it’s unlikely she’ll actually get there, the thought of going to prison hasn’t been sitting too well with her, because Lindsay headed back to New York this week… to start working at a Brooklyn daycare center. GUARD YOUR CHILDREN!
We’ve learned the Duffield Children’s Center will be Lindsay’s community service center of choice as she comes down to the wire in her probation case. As we reported, she’s only completed 9 1/2 hours of the 125 and has until May 28 to finish.
Based on our calculations, she’ll have to work 7 hours a day, 7 days a week to reach 125 hours by the deadline. If she does, she’ll be taken off probation and the case will be closed. If she doesn’t, the judge has promised she’ll do jail time to serve out her sentence.
As we reported … Linds had gone M.I.A. in London over the weekend, but it appears she’s finally surfaced in NYC, and claims she’s “ready to help.”
Duffield honchos tell TMZ Lindsay will help kids with arts and crafts, reading and she’ll also do administrative work. LiLo has done work there before and they say they’re happy to have her back.
I will say that the kids really did take to her if it’s the same place she visited during her “documentary” series a while back, and she actually wasn’t terrible at it. The thing is, Lindsay could actually be a legitimately nice, caring, warm human being when she cares to actually TRY at anything. Mostly I suppose it’s easier to lie around doing drugs and drinking (ALLEGEDLY) than to actually get your life in order…
Who wants to place bets on whether or not she’ll actually get this done?
