Lindsay's Jeweler

Shops Book Deal!

3/16/2011 6:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The jewelry store that was allegedly victimized by Lindsay Lohan has been shopping a book deal ... TMZ has learned ... and it's becoming a nightmare for prosecutors.

0316_KAMOFIE_BOOX_EX2
The publicist for Kamofie & Co. contacted Sharlene Martin, a literary agent, early last week and said his client -- the owners of Kamofie -- wanted to do a book deal.  Martin told the agent the necklace incident "was a moment, not a book."

Martin, who specializes in crime-related books, told the publicist, "You shouldn't waste any literary agent's time.  Call the Enquirer if you want."

Kamofie has already sold the surveillance video, and the latest effort makes the victim look so mercenary, it could jeopardize the prosecutor's case.

UPDATE: A rep for Kamofie & Co. tells us, "We have no book deal pending."

Great post
I forgot about the store deciding to auction off necklace for charity AFTER the case has concluded which will definetly keep their name out there for a few months.
Also they are encouraging people to suggest what charity the proceeds of the necklace auction should go to.

@Spot
She is making the right decision to go to trial as the store have wrecked the prosecution's case.
Even if she plead she wouldn't just be getting 30 days in jail.
She could get up to 3 years felony probation which would mean the first time she was even suspected of violating she could be held in jail without bail until the violation hearing . A violation of felony probation could even send her to prison.
There is still a small chance that the case could be dismissed at the preliminary hearing and she won't be ordered to stand trial.
She is pretty much going to jail anyway because of a technical DUI VOP but when she wins at trial due to reasonable doubt she will be completely free and out of the systen.

For those of you who think Dina or Michael are behind this read the quote from the store again. They only say there is no deal pending, not that they didn't contact the agent. I would think if someone erroneously contacted the agent in their name they'd be point blank denying it. They're not. There is only no deal pending because Martin didn't bite.

Are you kidding? Really? A book deal from one small incident? Whatever! This jewelry company was only after money from the beginning.

You forgot about the lindsey may still be a dirt bag part. Its obvious that you care little for getting to the actual truth unless the truth is lindsey didn't steal the necklace but make no mistake, lindsey make poor decisions on a daily basis, she hangs out where she should not be and does things that gets her name on all the wrong web sites. Lindsey should 1) STFU, and 2) quit talking about how she is going to fix her life and start actually fixing it. At this point she is no longer a main strwam celebrity she is only a tabloid celebrity who needs to STFU and get her stuff together before its to late, if it is not already.

Not a big Lindsey fan, but seems that girl was set up. All for money. Prosecution needs to drop all charges against her. Because of her past she is an easy target. She hasn't even been to trial yet. Maybe someone needs to investigate the jewelry store. If they are willing to sell tapes, write a book, then they are willing to rip off their every day customer. What losers.

No doubt, the pieces are fitting together. That naughty jewelery store owner set-up Lindsay. Besides, the neckless is worth no more than 500 bucks. How greedy can anybody be. And to Lilo haters: I'm not a Lindsay Fan. Just being objective.

Consider the store & Lilo's past for a second. Has the store had any issues with accusing others? If so, I'd like to know about it. Now ask yourself if Lilo has a history of stealing and/or lying. Why yes, she does. Who has better credibility here?

@ 78 MT2

We don't know who these people are or what they are capable of. We have some idea of what Lindsey is capable of because we are spoon fed things about her on a daily basis and I can honestly say I believe she is capable of stealing the thing.

I never heard of the store before this but some of the things they have done after the incident make me believe they are capable of taking advantage of the situation.

I agreed with all of it. Lindsay has made horrible decisions mainly since 2007 but especially since 2009 when she refused to go back to rehab.
Since the injustice of July 6th was rectified Lindsay had an opportunity to wipe the slate clean but instead confirmed her drug problem. Lindsay was fortunate to escape punishment for the Dawn Holland incident but she has been trying to get her life back together.
She made a mistake by not getting a written notification that this was a loan or whatever but she doesn't deserve to be made an example of because Danette Meyers wants to become the new DA.
