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.

Just talked to my friend who works there, apparently she was still there at or around the time the letter was written, July 31st. The Liz & Dick movie had finished filming long before then and she was filming The Canyons. He also confirmed that if someone else is paying, it's set up through them, not through the person who is staying there. Apparently, she never mentioned the Lifetime producers paying for it, while she was there. It's only since it's been made public that she did that. A liar is always a liar. Maybe Sam will bail her out of this, too.

Ha ha ha ha ha....what a crock of BS! There is absolutely NO way that the producers would have shelled out that much money for her stay there, plus she was still staying there after the movie finished filming. When producers or someone else is paying for something like that, it's set up in advance, in their name or the companies name. She wouldn't have even been on the bill. That's the standard procedure, there are no exceptions. As for her being happy to pay for it, that is HILARIOUS! She has NO money, as several other sites have been reporting. Look at how many other people she owes large amounts of money to. It's totally a Lindsay thing to not pay her bill and then blame someone else.

This story is BS because Liz and Dick ended in June and the bill is for July. But if the enablers want to believe it then I guess she hasn't paid it and is banned.

She is such a joke, she never intended on paying a penny. If she was serious about paying then she would have paid the bill and THEN gotten reimbursed by the producers IF they were gonna pay for it, which I really doubt they ever made any deal like that.

Such a tragic example of borderline personality. Why doesn't one of her family members step in, declare her incompetent and arrange for her to have the medication she so obviously needs/

Doesn't she ever get tired of saying that? "But it was a loan," "but *they* were supposed to pick up the tab," "but it wasn't my fault." Listen carefully, and I will tell you why this keeps happening to you Linds: Because you're a slow learner.

If you really think your accommodations should be covered by the studio, you make sure you have it in writing, under the terms of your contract. When you check in to an establishment, you make sure the management of the hotel is on the same page, by asking "Payment arrangements have been arranged through "X", correct?" And even then, don't assume "X" is going to cover extravagant meals and mini bar purchases. Again, unless those things spelled out clearly in writing, assume YOU are responsible for paying for them. Because not everything in life is a freebie, Linds. Not even for you. I know that's hard to believe, but not everyone is breaking down your door to bankroll your lifestyle.

I believe Lindsay 100% on this. She has stayed at the CM so often and there has never been a problem. She even lived there for 2 years.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Uh yeah, Dick, and when she lived there for 2 years she was asked to leave for not paying her bill and was banned for quite sometime then too.

@Stargazer


You haven't got a clue what you're talking about, neither has your fantasy friend. The bill is for June and part July. Lindsay was at the CM a few times in August but CM are not saying that hasn't been paid, its the June/July bill. The letter was written on August 1st you fool.


If you're gonna hate get your facts right.
