Lohan to Sue Jewelry Store Over Surveillance Tape

3/8/2011 2:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan is preparing to sue Kamofie & Company jewelry store -- claiming they had no right  to cash in  from the sale of the infamous surveillance tape ... because Lindsay never gave them the right to use her image for profit ... TMZ has learned.

Lindsay Lohan Surveillance Tape

Sources connected to the surveillance video tell TMZ ... Kamofie sold the rights to distribute the tape to the Associated Press for at least $40k. The AP has since struck a deal with "Entertainment Tonight" in which the show got exclusive rights to air the tape for one week.

We're told Lohan met with her lawyers today ... no word on when she plans to file the lawsuit.

UPDATE: A rep for Kamofie tells us, "We regret to hear there is trepidation by Miss Lohan in connection with the video. "

The statement continues, "We hope that everyone understands that this is beyond our control, the flood of the requests to see this video were simply too overwhelming.  It was truly necessary to put it out."

Wrong.

Bad reporting. The jewelry store didn't pocket $40K. Why don't you dig a little deeper. Remember there are other people who get paid from this and take cuts.

Plus, I can't believe no one is talking about Patrick and what he heard or was privy too.

So. Let me get this straight. She's not worried about looking like a THIEF throughout the world, she's worried about her image being used without her permission?

Typical Ho-han mentality.

GOOD FOR HER! I think this should prove that while, yes, she was clueless she had NO INTENT to steal. She's just her head up her own ass in the typical Hollywood way but them selling the tape despite the DA and Shawn Holly practically begging them not to makes their credibility go to hell. Not to mention that anyone who watches the tape can see that Lindsay did not steal that necklace. She wore it in plain view in front of store employees, one whom I believe is the owner, for 45 minutes! The tape has no audio, who knows what kind of verbal agreement was reached between her and the owner? The owner probably said 'sure, borrow the necklace, come back and fill out the paperwork whenever'. Either that or the employee let her borrow it, got in trouble and so covered her own ass by saying Lindsay stole it without her knowledge. This case is bogus and Lindsay does NOT deserve jail time for something she didn't do.

Oh, and for dumbass Lohan - Harvey was asked this question on TMZ live yesterday and he responded, as I'm sure all lawyers would, except ones that are making money off your dumbness, that once you enter a store that has surveillance, you do not own the right to your image, the tape and images are owned by the store.
This will be laughed out of court, but at least Shawn will get another paycheck.
Idiot.

Has anyone else here noticed that anytime a poster posts here with a woman's name (Nicole, Susan, Kate, Mimi,) they're a Trollhan?

Not very creative for a showbusiness family, Trollhan.
