Lindsay Lohan

Unpaid Hotel Bill

Not My Problem

8/29/2012 11:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0829_lindsay_chateau_01Lindsay Lohan's passing the buck -- telling friends she thought the producers behind her recent Liz Taylor movie were going to pay her $46,350 hotel bill ... which is why she never offered to cover the tab.

Sources close to the actress tell TMZ, Lindsay claims producers agreed to cover her stay at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont while she filmed "Liz & Dick" earlier this summer -- so she was shocked to learn there was an outstanding 5-figure bill in her name ... and even more shocked when she was banned from the hotel when the bill went unpaid.

0829_lindsay_subasset_launchWe're told Lindsay is currently trying to sort the problem out with producers -- and if they refuse to pay, Lindsay will happily cover the tab.

We reached out to Lifetime for comment -- so far, no word back.

What a wasted life of opportunities to make the diference on peoples life if any thing to be a roll model for younger generations. Ok you made one two three four five mistakes . Is not to late to change to turn your life around. But you continue to just be plain dumb...can anyone be so disconnected with reality? Lets have her do some serious community service. Then put her in jail for no less than two years

Nothing is ever her fault, ever....

Give me a break. I highly doubt the producers of a freaking Lifetime movie would say "go ahead and rack up a $40,000 bill! Sure, no problem!"

having produced several movie, I can guarantee that Lohan is full of shyte as usual. Or, she has terrible agents/lawyers. With housing, the actor is usually either given a weekly stipend to cover housing, or the hotel bills the production company directly. Unless everyone involved in the production is completely clueless, Lindsay should have known about this from the get-go. So, as usual, she is probably lying. Also, the filmmakers only pay for housing if the actor isn't filming in his/her home city. However, doesn't Lindsay live in LA? Why would the producers be paying for a hotel if she already lives in LA? Of course, Lindsay probably claimed that she lives in NYC. Whatever - she's a lying douche.

I wonder if the people on here that say that it's ok, she'll pay it...or it's ok she didn't pay the IRS because others haven't...or it's ok she took the necklace because she was going to return it "someday"...live there own lives like that too? If so this country is in BIG trouble, filled with people with no morals.

Hahahhaha! Too funny. Lohans buddys are turning on her..Wonder what Surge has up his sleeve for her???

Reports surfaced Tuesday that there was an outstanding balance of $46,350 for LiLo’s June/July stay at the famed Chateau Marmont hotel and that she was now banned from staying there.

Sources close to Lohan, however, told TMZ that the starlet thought the producers of the Lifetime movie “Liz & Dick,” in which Lohan is playing Elizabeth Taylor, were covering the tab.


Chateau Marmont also released a statement on the matter, saying they are “horrified” this information was leaked. It stated, “Chateau Marmont places guest privacy as a core value and upholds this privacy with paramount importance. After investigation, it appears that a private correspondence between Chateau Marmont's general manager and Miss Lohan was leaked by a member of her entourage. We are as horrified, disappointed and troubled by this occurrence as Miss Lohan surely is. Obviously, this is a private matter between one of our guests and the hotel and we will continue to treat it as such.”

help this young woman    

WOW! The Chateau Marmont is in full celebration mode. For some reason. They're having a massive A-list celebrities only party this Friday, and they're sparing no expense! No less that 8 champagne dispensers bubbling with Moet et Chandon, the main spa is filled with vodka-Jello, bowls full of loose diamonds for casual stealing will be strategically peppered throughout the lobby and the Men's Rooms, the Chateau "emergency "Doctor" will be on hand, and it's all FREE! (alternative 'refreshments" are readily available in the VIC room - shhhhh....)

Anyone who's ANYONE will be there - all the stars!!! Even Amanda Bynes will party like it's 2007 in Bungalow #3. It sure would suck to be a celebrity and miss out on the spectacular celebrity extravaganza...... might as well commit "suicide-by-shame".

Sounds like the Hollywood event of the decade.... I wonder what the celebration's all about? It isn't time for the Oscars already, is it?

5 questions before flaming-throwing Lindsay Lohan:

1. Doesn't Lindsay have an American Express Centurion card? (routinely issued to celebs by Amex)
2. Why would the Chateau Marmont allow her to check-in to the hotel in the first place without taking an imprint of her credit card -- or the production company's?
3. Isn't the answer to the above that Chateau Marmont's branding is tied to maintaining its status as a young Hollywood hangout -- and that Lindsay has been a lucrative customer and celebrity endorser by virtue of her patronage over years?
4. Do you think that the Chateau Marmont would ever check you or I in without taking our credit card?
5. Why would anyone now want to stay there? Chateau Marmont has demonstrated that it is willing to leak confidential bills to the media to embarrass their guests, and save a few bucks on civil litigation attorney fees.

Besides which, there are way cleaner and cooler hotels a block away: Sunset Towers, The Mondrian, and The Andaz.

Yup    

Lie-lo's claim that she thought the producers were going to take care of it is a complete & total lie; if it wasn't specifically dicated in her contract, then she's responsible for the costs, which she, of course, is completely aware of. And, she was told numerous times, including letters to her, that she owed the money & to pay up. She's lying here; she's a habitual, continual and pathological liar. I hope the chateu takes her stupid lying ass to court & nails her flabby fake titttied dumbass to the wall...
