Lowe To Cops: I Can Handle Sex Case On My Own

4/9/2008 10:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob LoweTMZ knows why Rob Lowe called off the hounds (as in Sheriffs) who offered to conduct a criminal investigation into an alleged blackmail plot against his family.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that several days ago, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies showed up unannounced at Lowe's doorstep, offering to launch a criminal probe into what Lowe says is a conspiracy by three ex-employees. Lowe's lawyer, Larry Stein, was on the phone with Lowe and spoke with deputies. We're told Stein said he didn't want a criminal investigation just yet because the former employees would probably clam up -- you know, the whole self-incrimination thing.

Lowe has sued the three exes, claiming various misdeeds, including bringing strangers into the house and having sex with them on his bed ... all the other stuff isn't as interesting.

Stein had no comment.

Hmmm, it seems as though Mr. Lowe protests a little too much. What he alledging may well be true but I am wondering why he is putting so much of this out into the media and we have yet to hear one word from those who he claims are after his butt. He may very ell be innocent, he may very well may not be. He does have a sordid past and ley
t's face it, the video taping of him with the underage girl is not going to give him much credibility....he secretly taped them having sex....that is pretty damn low and sick if you ask me. Time will tell.

The cops came knocking on his door to offer their assistance in this thing? That's odd. Then again this whole thing is pretty bizarre. Lowe should know better than to hang himself like this.

She looks great    


If Lower were truly the victim of extortion, conspiracy and blackmail, he would've filed criminal charges.

End of story.

It's the usual "I'll bury you in legal fees" threat. He's hoping the threat of civil law suits (which he can control) and legal fees will silence the employees and end it. He has no intention of going through any lawsuit.

Also, how typical is it that non-celebrity crime victims don't get help with real crimes, but the cops knock down celebrity doors to help them? Boo-hoo, being a celebrity is so hard.

I don't understand why Rob Lowe didn't contact the FBI and set up a sting on this woman. As for the police "offering" to help, my guess is when they knocked on his door, it was more along the lines of, "why on earth didn't you contact us first?". This makes them look bad, too. Something is definitely a little off here, and I love Rob's acting, so I hope this is all straightened out quickly and no one gets hurt.

I've been seeing reports on this at other news venues, and one thing I see often is them mentioning his 1986 sex "scandal" with "two young women." But anyone who has seen the video, as I have, knows that he isn't with two girls, but rather one girl and one guy (the guy being legal age). It's two guys "double-teaming" the girl, there's no guy-on-guy stuff going on.
