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."

The jewelry store never wanted to prosecute Lindsay in the first place. They just wanted their merchandise back. They told the police they didn't want to prosecute, but the police arrested her anyway, because she was suspected of breaking the law, and the DA has decided to prosecute, because law breakers should be punished.

The jewelry store will gain no money from a Lindsay conviction. The whole incident has harmed their reputation and customers because celebs have not wanted to encounter reporters and photographers there.

TMZ has forgotten that the store is the VICTIM, Lindsay is the accused, and the STATE of CALIFORNIA is the entity prosecuting and trying Lindsay, not the store.

When has it been against the law for a victim of a crime to write a book, give an interview, sell their story to a movie company? Never. Criminals often profit from their crimes, so why does anyone care if the store makes some money?

I also don't think there is much here to write a book about, but I don't care if they try.

Why is everyone so concerned with little sticky fingers, lying Lindsay? After all, she is a teflon celebrity. In her own words, she can do whatever she wants to do because she's a celebrity. Just ask the boys whose car she hijacked, because that is just what she told them.

This is the typical Jewish response when provoked. It's okay for Jews like Gottfried, Limbaugh, Sulkin, and Kudlow to mock other nation.

I really can't wait if there is a trial. The whole truth of the matter needs to come out. Was on the jewelers side, but now - not so much. It just looks as though they used Lindsay to get A LOT of publicity. It's almost as if the alleged verbal "loan" agreement might be true. I'm not saying Lindsay's side of the story is true or that she is innocent - I don't know yet, but I do know that people will go to great depths for publicity. It wouldn't be too far fetched for me to believe that the jewelry store schemed in advance to create this whole debacle. Lindsay had already been in the jewelry store a few times before. She had even absent-mindedly left her own expensive earring on the counter and had to be reminded about it before she walked out the door. I wouldn't put it past the jewelry store owners to set Lindsay up. I also wouldn't put it past Lindsay to steal. I don't know what the truth is, but it's looking more and more like the jewelry store is out for publicity and a whole lot of money. Like I said, I'm not putting it past them to create this whole scheme.

When Lindsay got home and noticed she still had it on she should have taken it back. Even if it was a mistake any honest person would take it back. Thats were she screwed up on this one. The store is wrong for selling anything related to this case . How can she have a fair trial. The judge should throw out the case because the store is trying to make profit off a case they filed against her.

s***bag celeb shops at a s***my store. The two go hand in hand. And while it seemed that Lilo came into the store with the scheming intention to distract and jack that necklace, it now appears that the store is trying to further criminalize her by going to greater lengths and capitalizing on it. Both parties should just drop it and move on. This is not that interesting of a story.

FOCK Kamofie! They are screwing up this case big time

I will not EVER stand up for the store! They're IDIOTS! Lindsay allegedly stole from them, but they didn't want to press charges, but now they have no problem cashing in on the incident - which will have a negative slant if this goes to trial.

I hope these pric** go out of business. Book deal? WTF kind of idiot could even begin to write a book about this stupid incident? Yeah, money-money-money, that's LA for you. Let me take someone elses problem or secret or behavior and make a big deal about absolutely nothing so we can get rich.
I hope your f-ing store goes bankrupt! And I hope you lousey bast*rds get the living sh*t kicked out of you. I bet ANYTHING these people are not Americans who own this store.

I wonder how many vilent felonies and murders the city is ignoring to focus on Lindsays case. Drop the charges there's no way a jury will convict Lindsay. The store seems to be intentionally screwing up the prosecutors case. First they sell the video for 40k before it is even shown at the trial, next they announce a charity auction of the necklace for publicity and finally the try to get a book deal. They are either extremely greedy or they are destroying the prosecutors case on purpose. Maybe they feel bad about getting Lindsay involved or it is possible that they were paid to mess up the case. Either way this case should be dismissed.
