Lindsay Lohan

Blaming Jewelry Theft

On Suge Knight's 'Son'

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.

I imagine those sunglasses are all scratched up by now & unwearable... Maybe Lindsay was mistaken & really thought she was Elizabeth Taylor & needed the jewelry to 'channel' her. That should be Holly's defense.

Everyone is now using ambien as an excuse for their bad behavior. Anyone who uses that excuse should be locked up, just for that alone. I think I'll go shoplift and blame it on ambien. Hope it works for me.

Last thing I knew, Suge was a criminal who employs criminals and he/they stop at nothing, She's really stepped in it now. Too bad her alcoholic mother and drug abusing father can't sober themselves and then get through to her. The mother especially just keeps excusing her because she's financially dependent upon Lindsay. Ugh. So sad.

You know...I really wanted to believe that Lindsay was able to turn herself around. The "accidents"? Sure, some people are just bad drivers and should not be behind the wheel of a car...doesn't make them a bad person. But this one is starting to look bad for Lindsay!

Of course, it's someone else's fault. Becuase she never does anything wrong. The world is just out to get her because we have nothing else to do. Pathetic. Someone really needs to just lock her up. Treat her like everyone else. Anyone else would have been locked up but oh no not Lindsay.

Out of all the Hollywood trainwrecks I can remember this would have to be the single most disturbing - something so very wrong goin' on here. I wonder exactly *what* her criminal connections are, what she knows about, and just how far down the spiral of career crime she intends on going.
