Lindsay Lohan

Broke Movie Rules

By Driving and Crashing

6/19/2012 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0608_lindsay_lohan_011Lindsay Lohan was PROHIBITED from driving while shooting "Liz and Dick," because the insurance policy the production company took out made it crystal clear -- Lindsay was not allowed to get behind the wheel ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the production tell us ... the insurance company that issued the policy -- which would take a major hit if Lindsay couldn't complete the film -- was extremely reluctant to take the risk.  The insurance company set numerous conditions on its coverage, and one of them was banning Lindsay from the roads which have landed her in big trouble multiple times -- DUIs, car accidents, and on and on.

Sources tell us ... the honchos producing the movie knew Lindsay was driving in violation of the policy, but it appears no one cared -- that is until Lindsay crashed a Porsche on Pacific Coast Highway, with a production SUV following right behind her.

As for the consequences, we're told so far the insurance company hasn't attempted to cancel the policy or take other action.  For its part, the production company has made it clear to Lindsay -- she is NOT to drive for the duration of the filming.

No way Lifetime rented her an 80k Porsche. Lohan rented that herself to keep up appearances like she's relevant.

TMZ...We knew about this last week. Why did you think Crackie lied about who was driving? She wasn't worried about being arrested for a probation violation due to HER reckless driving causing an accident(like anyone would ever arrest her for that-lol). She was worried the insurance for her sh*tfest of a comeback movie could be cancelled if she was caught driving. Why do you think her "driver" in the Escalade attempted to bribe the truck driver? Because he worked for the production co. and knew if the insurance co. found out she was driving, the insurance for the movie could be cancelled. I, for one, believe the truck driver regarding the bribe as well as the accident being Crackie's fault. The production co. was trying to cover everything up to avoid losing their insurance. As it stands now, our little Crackie caused a WHOLE DAY loss in production costs that the insurance co. is not libel for. And with her latest drama queen stunt of attempting to call in sick to work and further cause additional production time loss-they had no choice and called her bluff by having EMT'S roust her ass out of bed. Crackie has cost the production co. hundreds of thousands of dollars by now. And this is only a sh*tty Lifetime movie. Imagine if this was a major feature film where she was the headline star-the amount could have totaled in the millions. Who in their right mind would risk hiring her? Of course this point is moot anyway because this movie will be panned as well as her performance and she won't have a career left.

If the production company KNEW she was driving and didn't stop it. they deserve to have their insurance yanked and this pathetic excuse for a biopic permanently shut down!

She knew that this Lifetime movie was the "BIG BREAK" she needed.....snicker..........and she screwed it up. LiLo, ever hear of "3 strikes and you're out"? Well, you are on your 33rd strike, at least. Get out, go home. Do something useful with your life cuz you are NOT an actress anymore.
