Lindsay Lohan Made Photo Deal With Betty Ford Chick

1/21/2011 1:21 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan made a secret deal to meet with Dawn Holland -- the Betty Ford Center worker Lindsay allegedly attacked -- and the plan was that a photog would take pictures of the two together, sell them and Dawn would pocket the cash ... sources familiar with the deal tell TMZ.

Lindsay Lohan Photo Deal
The plan -- hatched BEFORE Dawn decided not to pursue criminal charges against Lindsay -- was that Dawn would make $10,000 from the sale of the photos.

Sources connected with the deal tell us the point was not for Dawn to get money in exchange for dropping her case -- but rather for Lindsay to "help her out."

Sources say the deal fell apart when Lindsay's business manager, Lou Taylor, put the kibosh on the plan.

Dawn was pissed, felt Lindsay was "disrespecting" her, got a new lawyer and may pursue the battery case.

As far a probation violations go, you have to remember that they are only allegations. Nothing has actually been proven here. Whether any ever gets proven in the longrun remains to be seen. I seriously doubt this issue ever reaches a criminal court. I'm sure this issue will be resolved with a civil settlement of some kind.

Dawn has already made public statements saying that no crime has occurred. Whether that's true or not, I'm not saying I know for certain. But she said it. If she tried to go back on those statements now, how would she explain that in court?

I got some advice for the Lohans: stop digging. Everytime you guys try to make something better you end up in a deeper hole. Don't do anything about this. If something comes of it, just go to jail. Which is what Lindsay should have done a long time ago. Probation violations that end up in probation extensions, deeper hole. Another probation violation that ends up with rehab, deeper hole. Getting into trouble in rehab and trying to "fix things", deeper hole. Now this. Just go to jail, Lindsay, and get out from underneath the legal system.

And guess who tried to set up this photo shoot? yes, dear old daddy Michael, he's been talking about it to the media all week, whatever he touches is bad news for Lindsay. Thank goodness Lindsays manager Lou stopped it if indeed this story is true.

Personally I hope this battery case does go to court, it will show Dawn Holland up for what she really is, a grasping, devious, untrustworthy individual. It will also open the door for Lindsay to sue Holland and Betty Ford.

Is anyone sure that Lindsay set this up? Agreed to it? Even knew about it? Michael is the one that said there was going to be a meeting. Wonder what his cut was going to be? Wonder if he recorded Dawn Holland? Wonder if he'll sue her for stiffing him out of money.

A bottom ... All addicts need a bottom. And everytime someone comes into rescue an addict really cheats them out of their bottom.

Shame on those who keep trying to save dear old Lindsay. She needs her own bottom and it just ain't gonna happen if they keep throwing money at her sinful behavior.

Let her bottom in Jesus name I pray.

Yeah Right. The plan was not for her to drop the case? Do LiLosers reps think people are that dumb. Well maybe CA people are.

Everyone knows she should have maxed out in July but now shes only got 35 days until she completes probation. On February 25th her probation will be made unsupervised and she will have zero obligations.
There is NO chance that Lindsay will get convicted of this after the actions of both the Riverside cops and Dawn Holland.
