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.

This story is more serious if true. Lindsay is a seriously gross person if this story is true and very guilty. And she brought Cody with her to this mess and I hardly think it was just ambien she was on. Details may change but this story puts Lindsay in a very dim light. I'm still waiting for more details and would not be surprised if actual details are different than the stated story. My comments above are solely based on the details of this TMZ story.

This reminds me of Brit Spears..Maybe she needs to be evaluated.
Unfortunately , she doesnt seem to have anyone n her family willing to put their own needs or ego aside and concentrate on this girl, like Brit did.
If she did this, it is something she obviously cant control

LA Cannot afford the LiLo crime wave! Ever time this skyaank hits a lick on some bling...it costs the city and county a half a million dollars when all is said and done. First, the overtime and court security, press conferences, court appointed physiologists, the probation reviews, the county jail has to "audit" the amount of time LiLO will actually serve with over-crowding, the dozen or so hearings on LiLO's progress, the judges who all set aside their case log to cater to the busy work-load of LiLo Incorporated...and on and on.

Meanwhile, some cat who stole some aspirin at Walgreens had his case settled in 7 days and sits in the lock-up doing 364 days and a wake up!

"Sam Magid, a good friend of LiLo's." How low can a person get to steal from their "friend"? Is Lindsay that hard up for money? Or is she just a kleptomaniac?

Lindsay needs to remember who she is dealing with here. Suge Knight's family for God's sake. She is gonna be in vegas and find herself shot dead while she drives down the street just like Tupac. Watch yo back

I wonder if she stole individual forks, or went for the whole silverware drawer.

Lindsay and Micheal must have some nasty dirt on this Sam person (or his family) to scare him into recanting the story - after all, what use is a payoff when you've just been relieved of $100,000 worth of assets unless it's uh, $100,000 which would defeat the whole point of the heist. Unless there's some other sh*tty deal they offered him, but what exactly? He's a very wealthy man. If they do know something awful about him it makes them just as bad since they continue to enable him. And why was Cody there? Who takes their kid brother along to do a burglary?

AM I the only one who notices that she manages to get into trouble about 2-3 weeks before one of her movies is set to release/air? She manipulates the media better than (that hack) Madonna ! :-)
