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."

The tape has the same thing onit whether we never saw it yet, or we did. So it makes no sense to me why Lindsay's better off. She did it. I just don't understand why she wouldn't make a public apology anyways. It would only make herself look way better in the long run.

IMO Lindsay should get a good plea bargain and plead no contest.

@455 Normal....I agree, I think that a psychology major will be analyzing the haters behavior and diagnosing what mental problems they have and why, Lou admitted that his father was physically abusive and that it hurt him very much as a child...

Actually, I said nothing of the sort. The only male physical abuser that I'm aware of here is MICHAEL LOHAN. Please get your facts straight, if you can. And BTW, glad to know that Lindsay and her family find physical abuse amusing. How amusing was it to watch MiLo beat up Dina, Lindsay? Just wondering.

BATCHELOR'S DEGREE???? In Lindsayland it would be BUTCHlor's degree!
P.S.
I heart Vorlon

Or a BITCHlor's Degree. She could DEFINITELY earn that.

Me too on Vorlon, who has been tirelessly questioning the Lohans on what went down that fateful day, with nothing but BS returned to him/her.

It no longer matters whether she went in there to steal it or not, everyone who sees that tape figures she stole it and wanted to steal it. She's already been convicted by nearly everyone here. So there's no reason to go to trial. Save the taxpayers money and do the time, Lindsay.

@Nicole--You do realize she will be on probation even if she gets it reduced to a misdemeanor, right? If she takes a plea and they let her reduce it to a misdemeanor, the plea will still involve probation, guaranteed.

Yeah but if she violates she would be facing JAIL not prison on a non violent misdemeanor (you only serve 20% and bail is guaranteed)

Hey...you regulars would know...were ID's being hijacked before the "outing"?

Posted at 4:52 PM on Mar 8, 2011 by suza271


I'm not aware of any obvious hijacking before she was outed...anyone else? Once Lilty was outed as FOL, as Lou wrote in an earlier post, names (Lou and G Crackers so far)were taken over.

On a side note, I will venture over to IMDB! Thanks!

Not so much, not to this extent. There was a little annoyance of Trollhans posting under several names at once and even having conversations with themselves. Making ridiculous prolindsay statements and then agreeing with themselves.

My general take on them:

Nicole, Susan, chill, gloday, Jill......DINA LOHAN

Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, John Smith, rock, therock,
Tony Baja.....all MICHAEL LOHAN and MICHAEL JR

Dylan.....poor little CODY LOHAN

friendoflindsay, normal person.......ALI LOHAN

Anderson Cooper stated that Dina Lohan sits on the internet all day long "monitoring" gossip sites about Lindsay.

our very own suza271 posted a very interesting statement from the jewelers. Can't recall seeing it on tmz - if it hasn't appeared, could suza271 perhaps post it here? Far more informative than the tmz "stories" ... To me, it sounded forthright with no trashing of LL. I think if the jewelers testify at a trial, Lindsay will be toasted extra crispy. They will be quite believable to a jury.

This is a real test of her sobriety. Bravo.

Oh Sure!
Lindsay hasnt been drug tested in the last three weeks
She can easily drink and pop pills behind closed doors
I seriouly doubt with all the strees shes going threw, Dina isnt popping Xanix down her mouth,along with the Adderral she is addicted to Dina can easily get her blow as well

I dont believe that for one moment Ali

Nice try anyway

Shes far from clean and sober

No, LaL, no, you really don't. There was nothing glamorous about it or her. She screamed about Danette Meyers. She screamed at all of us. She ranted about how acting was in the blood and she was born to do it. She was a complete Diva. And BTW, she IS here. Check out some of the weird Lou and Grandma Crackers postings, like the one about me going off to take a dump and mocking Grandma Cracker for going to school. That's her. Give you an idea of how "likable" she is?

That's right, screw the system again. The Trollhans have it all figured out, don't they?

Sickening.
