Lindsay Lohan was of course due in court today because she hasn’t met the terms of her probation, but she skipped that because parties at Cannes have an open bar.
So this morning a warrant was issued for her arrest, and bail was set at $100,000. Her attorney spoke for her in court, claiming Lindsay wanted to be present but, ahem, her passport was stolen.
“She did, in fact, have airline tickets,” (her attorney) Holley told the judge. “From our standpoint, there is a valid reason for her not being here today.”
Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel wasn’t satisfied, saying the star has a history of missing scheduled appointments.
“If she wanted to be here, it looks to the court that she could have been here,” Revel said.
The judge revoked Lohan’s probation, issued the arrest warrant and imposed several conditions should Lohan make bail. She will be prohibited from drinking any alcohol, required to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and submit to random weekly drug testing.
Speaking to the media after the hearing, Holley said that Lohan has completed 10 of the 13 required alcohol-education classes. He said she went to Cannes to work on a movie, adding that, “It’s her job.”
It might be her job if she were working on a movie, but she’s not. She says she’ll be in some Linda Lovelace bio-pic, but Lohan lies constantly, so why would anyone believe that.
Anyone can just announce a movie, by the way. You can say whatever you want. It doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. I’m making a movie with Diora Baird about a girl in a bikini who jumps rope on a really pretty beach in Hawaii. People don’t realize how sweaty you get from hopping up and down, and that you have to shower when you’re done. This movie won’t back down from that gritty reality.
See? I announced a movie. But is it true? It must be, I just announced it. Did you not see the announcement?
