Lindsay Lohan Crash

No Way

Porsche's Brakes Failed

EXCLUSIVE

0618_lindsay_lohan_tmz
Lindsay Lohan's brakes couldn't have failed last month -- moments before she slammed her Porsche into an 18-wheeler -- because sources tell TMZ, Porsche itself tested the car after the crash ... and the brakes passed with flying colors.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay blamed faulty brakes for the accident.-- telling friends she slammed on the brakes when the truck allegedly cut her off ... and nothing happened.

As it happens, we're told Porsche caught wind of Lindsay's excuse and contacted the company that rented Lindsay the vehicle -- asking if it could formally test the car.

According to sources, the rental company obliged -- and Porsche ran its tests, finding the brakes that had been installed on the car were A-OK, and showed no evidence of malfunction ... which blows Lindsay's bum brakes excuse out of the water.

A rep for the Santa Monica PD had no comment. A rep for Porsche also had no comment -- but did say they're cooperating with authorities. Calls to Lindsay were not returned.

If the D.A. and city Attorney offers this, I think Linds should jump on it. Seems like a fair bargain. Your thoughts, NICOLE?

Lindsay Lohan: Full of Crap as Usual

Yeah. Lindsay Lohan is not exactly prone to truth-telling.

Her claim that her brakes failed and caused her recent car crash shockingly did not pan out after Porsche itself tested the car after the crash.

The brakes on her rented car passed with flying colors.

The star blamed the car's brakes, telling friends how she SLAMMED on the brakes when an 18-wheeler allegedly cut her off, but nothing happened.

Obviously concerned, Porsche caught wind of Lindsay's excuse and contacted the rental car company, asking to test what was left of the car.

Porsche ran its tests, finding the brakes were perfectly fine, and showed zero evidence of malfunction or tampering. Just LiLo fabricating her story.

It's unclear why anyone would lie about that, as people crash cars all the time out of simple human error. But that's Lindsay Lohan for you.

Lohan was hospitalized after the wreck, which was unrelated to the recent 911 call that sent paramedics to her hotel ... things blend together.

Reps for the Santa Monica PD, Porsche and LiLo had no comment on the case, which has not resulted in any criminal charges for anyone.

I can't believe the nerve of Porsche to publicly dispute what Lindsay said about the brakes failing. Has there ever been an instance in which Lindsay has lied? Besides that she said she wasn't even driving! I hope Dina sues Porsche for making Lindsay out to be a liar. She's practically the Mother Theresa of purity and honesty!

Failure to use the brakes is NOT the same as the brakes failed!!!! So here we ago again another 6 months of courtroom jesters where she will walk away with a slap on her wrist. You would think her wrist is getting a little sore sheesh!!!!

AGENT STUPID    

Has The Canyons started filming? It's hard to imagine that it has and no pictures have made their way to the internet. The director of photography of the film has never done a film before. His credits are only for short films. I don't think that this is a union film, 100k isn't enough money to produce a SAG-AFTRA film. Lindsay must have declared financial core and deactivated her union status, if she didn't and the film is non union she is violating union rule number one against doing non union work and could be suspended from SAG-AFTRA for a year. The union requires workman's comp insurance on every actor for each day they work and it's not cheap. Permits for locations would have to be approved by the city and paid for, not cheap either. A list of locations and permits must also be submitted to the union. James Deen I don't believe is a union member so the film would have to pay three thousand dollars to Taft Hartley him and pay a penalty also. The actors must be receiving hardly any pay for the film, I mean if there's twenty five actors maybe they get two thousand each which leaves 50k for production. Liz and Dick probably spent about 200k a day on filming. I still think that this production may be shut down for illegal filming and there is a strong chance that Lindsay will walk off of it because it is so unprofessional.
