How to Profit Off Celebrity Misfortune

6/13/2007 6:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nobody really benefits when a famous person is busted for DUI ... unless, of course, you bet on them to get popped!
Lily, Amy, Britney, Lindsay
The folks over at have placed odds on a group of celebs they think are likely to get pulled over. British pop star Lily Allen leads the field at 4/1 (meaning if you bet $1, you win $4) and Lindsay Lohan is second at 11/2 -- of course, she'll first have to get out of rehab.

Other top contenders include Britney Spears and Amy Winehouse at 6/1 (no shocker on either front) and The Hoff at 13/2.

What is particularly funny is that you can bet on all the "Lost" cast members together at 7/1 odds. But don't get suckered-in to that one: Michelle Rodriguez, Cynthia Watros and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje -- all of whom were busted for DUI in the past two years -- aren't on the show anymore, so they don't count. Just looking out for you.

All I can say is where are their parents? Someone needs to knock
some sense into all these train wrecks. Look at all the bad publicity...
what a bunch of losers.

Don't bet against Paris getting popped again. Look at Paris smoke the peace pipe:

Paris sucking on a tampon. Mommy & Daddy must be so proud!

Funny that as soon as I read this, Rehab came on the radio.
My picks in order-
1. Lindsay (she just got into a crash that will likely turn into a DUI, so I'm counting on that).
2. Amy- no explaination there.
3. Lily- see Brit's explaination
4. Britney- she's least likely because it seems like she's had drivers lately, especially when she's been out partying at night. This is the only reason she's ranked below Lily.

How do you profit off celebrity misfortune?

You show support for the addict,
in return for inside information.

ya know, tmz's harry levin has tapped the 4 amigas-gone-wrong: nicole ritchie, kim stewart, paris n nicky hilton for all his reports....n he's a front for Time-Warner (Sony too?)...he must pay all 4 of them...

no wonder it breaks his heart that paris-ite is doing time for her dui-pled-down-to-reckless but maybe he should've reminded her to sign up for her AA class, reminded her she couldn't drive on a suspended license, & reminded her she accepted 36 mos probation in her plea bargain...& reminded her to donate to MADD while photog'g her driving drunk from the clubs
