Dogfight Over Lohan Necklace Surveillance Video

7/16/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The owners of the jewelry store where Lindsay Lohan walked out with that necklace are now at war with the guy who was out selling the surveillance video -- and a lawsuit could be looming.

Here's the lowdown. Geoff and Sofia Kaman, the owners of the Kamofie & Company jewelry store, hired a broker -- Christopher Spencer -- to sell the surveillance tape.

Spencer then cut a deal with the Associated Press, which agreed to sell the tape to various media outlets and give Spencer a cut of the profits that he would share with the Kamans. 

But we're told the Kamans felt Spencer was withholding a big chunk of their share, so they sent and an email to the Associated Press to see if Spencer was up to no good.  In the email they asked, "We were wondering if there have been more payments ..."

Spencer was indignant, and fired off a cease and desist letter to the Kamans, saying, "You do not have any legal right to contact the AP and suggest I've been ripping you off which is what you've done."

Spencer says the Kamans are ingrates, claiming, "I am in disbelief that, after achieving so much in your benefit, you'd be reaching out to someone and suggest that my company or I are not paying you money that's owed to you."

Spencer threatens if the Kamans don't back off, he'll sue their behinds. The Kamans had no comment.

Looks like Puckett is on a pro LL swing this morning. Are you still drunk from last night or what? Your mood swings are epic.

Looks like grandma cracker is on a roll with her ad hominem attacks again too, because that's all she's got. Nice try better luck next time.

Puckett,

Hi there. You noticed that alot of us on here like the Kamen's. So you are having fun stirring the pot. I am not going to rail against you. I agree, and I bet they do too, that hiring that Spencer person was the worst thing they could have done. They needed a PR person at the time and did not chose wisely. It can happen to the best of us.

That said have fun.

GTG for most of the day.

Look what trouble this worthless Lindsay Lohan has caused. She is like a piece of garbage throw into a pond --- the ripples just keep spreading out and engulfing everything around.

Who said it's a big deal? What it is is funny, because i don't recall your ad hominem attack containing any "bits and pieces" about the story? lol

Weak comeback, but that's OK. I never expected much from you. Besides ad hominem attacks from dummies is par for the course on TMZ. Not a big deal. It's just sad for you that that's all you've got. /snicker

I hope the jewelry store makes a nice profit from the tape. Remember, they are the victims here. In fact Lohan has now been convicted of the theft, case closed. Take a look at the recent article from Plum magazine if you have any doubts about who Lindsay Lohan really is -- a user, addict, self-entitled drama queen with severe mental health issues. Hats off to the jewelry store owners for standing up for their rights and not being bullied by "I'm Lindsay Lohan."

It's impossible to guess. One has to read the contract (if there is one) between the story and the broker. Otherwise, it's impossible to guess.
