Lindsay Lohan

Blaming Jewelry Theft

On Suge Knight's 'Son'

8/28/2012 10:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0828_tmz_lindsay_lohan_andrew_knightLindsay Lohan claims she's been framed in the theft of $100,000 of watches and sunglasses, telling friends the real culprit is a man claiming to be Suge Knight's son.  Problem is ... cops aren't buying what she's selling.

We broke the story ... Lindsay is now officially a suspect in the theft, which occurred at the lavish home of Sam Magid, a good friend of LiLo's.

Magid told cops Monday ... he was in touch with 2 of Lindsay's friends -- one of whom is Andrew Knight -- and they said the night of the theft Lindsay had handed them a bag with 2 or 3 pieces of the stolen items wrapped in her t-shirt. The 2 men returned the items to Magid. Other items were still missing.

Magid also said he was in touch with Lindsay, who told him she had hidden some of the other items around the house because she was afraid they would be stolen by burglars. We're told Magid told cops Lindsay confessed she was on Ambien at the time she hid the jewelry and was hazy about exactly what happened.

Now Lindsay claims Knight is the real culprit, something Knight strongly denies. And apparently cops buy his story, because Lindsay is the target of the investigation.

Magid told cops Lindsay contacted him recently and said, "I'm sorry. Please pray for me."

We're told yesterday Magid gave cops Ziploc bags containing some of the stolen items. In addition to the watches and sunglasses, we're told Tiffany monogrammed silverware was also taken.

Is anything EVER her fault? If they have enough evidence to leak the details that they already have, they must think they have her for the crime this time (or TMZ is exaggerating the facts as usual). The rule is supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but the average person would already be rotting away in jail whether they were guilty or not.

My theory on the question of why "Lindsay is rich so why does she need to steal?" -

-Although she may make what seems like large amounts of money to the average person, it's quite possible she's still poor in practical terms. I'm guessing she's always owing some very evil criminals huge sums of money, and on top of that she has no idea how to manage the availiable assets she does have, and spends it on crap which should be low priority. I bet most of those "vast sums" of money are almost instantly spent.

-She's got a strong kleptomaniac streak in her and really enjoys the buzz. However her thefts seem too premeditated for her to be a true kleptomaniac who steals in the same way an alcoholic drinks. Which brings us to:

-Lindsay fancies herself an outlaw. She has a massive sense of entitlement and truly believes that the rules which apply to everyone else do not apply to her. If she see's something she wants that's not hers, she really, deep down sees no problem in taking it.

Lets just figure out what we really know to be true: Lindsay Lohan is a lying sack of ****. Lindsay Lohan ALWAYS blames someone else for her crimes. Next she will blame her assistant. The Los Angeles police and DA's office must be a bunch of star-struck clowns.

I hope Suge sets Lindsay straight for trying to frame his son.

LL might be doing lots of Crips...or is he a Blood.

Either way Lilo better figure it out fast.
