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.

That's not true. She had until July to complete the program and in February the Judge said she was in compliance.
When the Judge ordered her to appear in May after seeing the very complimentary Right On report which detailed her attendance she was screwed.

@Ernie
When exactly was that offer made ? After the 1st or 2nd DUI?
If she hadn't gone to rehab after the 2nd DUI she would never have got informal probation or the minimum jail sentence.

Ex addicts are often hired in substance abuse counseling. However, Holland is a 5 time veteran from crack rehab. She's done too much crack and her brain is damaged. BF showed bad judgement in hiring her. She's a loose cannon - interesting to hear what happens next.

There is something wrong with this world, who the hell would pay 10 grand for a picture of Lindsey Lohan with this girl. Maybe if they were smoking crack in a picture, that might be worth something. Lindsey is not a A-Lister or even a good actress, I just wish this piece of trailer trash and her screwed up family would go away !!!!

@ Nicole ... @Ernie When exactly was that offer made ? After the 1st or 2nd DUI? If she hadn't gone to rehab after the 2nd DUI she would never have got informal probation or the minimum jail sentence.

It goes way back to when she first got out of Promises... after her first brush with the law. I have followed this case since then as well.

According to the prison minister he was going to serve Lohan's time in jail after her second dui if she would agree to enter a 12 month faith based program.

Do an internet search and I am sure you will find out all about it. Search Google....using Lohan, Prison Minister ... etc.

She has wasted so much time, money and energy by going the route she has.... and it has been nothing but pain and sorrow and lots of money spent by the entire Lohan family.

Sometimes we are are worst enemies. We make things that are so simple to solve into huge nightmares with no end in sight.

This recent story is just another chapter in a book called, "This Really Did Not Have To Happen."

Well she seems to be doing so much better, so I sorta want to say to Dawn GO AWAY and leave Lilo alone. BUT, this is seriously messed up that she would try to do anything at all to pay this chick off considering it was a CRIMINAL investigation. As someone above stated, they might BOTH now be open to facing charges. That being said, if Dawn pursues this, wait and watch...Lilo's camp will twist this into an extortion case in order to drop the charges, thus extorting Dawn in an ironic way sine it'd be pressure to drop the case. Guys, this is just SUCH a mess.

#25...Dina, is that you??? Must be because everytime something goes wrong in this gals life, you rush to the media to say its HIS fault...LOL. Seriously, God forbid your daughter did anything wrong here. Either way, everyone involved in this issue has destroyed their own credibility. Just send the broad to jail and let her a$$ dry out. geesh... it's not rocket science. As for Dawn, your breaking every rule in the 12 step program...why dont' you just go have a drink now and take Lilo with you. Sounds like you two have a lot in common... you both need to grow up and go away!!

I truly believe that Lohan should officially give up oon the idea that she can ever make a comeback. Her career is dead.
PS> It's amazing how someone can go from being one of the most beautiful people around, to looking like a used piece of meat. I've never seen anyone her age with lines like she has on her face. she looks like she's damn near 40

ok i am confused-if Holland has already signed a declaration that she did not want to pursue charges-and declaration has been given to the DA (per her attorney)--can she now turn around and try to press charges again because she is pissed she didn't get "paid"??????????????????????

FYI,it's NOT the victim who presses charges, it's the POLICE.

It dosen't matter WHAT Holland said or didn't say or who she is, works for or has done in the past if there is ample other evidence that the procecutor feels will stand up in court. Smearing her will not get LL off the hook if there is evidence.

Time will tell if that other evidence exists. Something happened or LL's people wouldn't hae been touting the big "sit down."
