2:10 PM PT -- Dr. Sierra's rep has released a statement saying the reality star was "completely unaware of anyone (other than the new owner) driving the vehicle."

The statement continues ... "Through filming for Real Housewives of Miami, press engagements, and crazy travel schedules, the paperwork has not been executed 100% for the sale of the Porsche. But [Dr. Sierra] is not responsible for the unfortunate occurrence that took place with Ms. Lohan and the pedestrian. “

4:08 PM PT -- As for Domingo ... his rep tells TMZ, the painter is aware of the allegations against Lindsay Lohan and doesn't give a crap. According to the rep, Domingo willingly gives Lindsay his car whenever she needs it. In fact, he permanently leaves a pair of keys for her in NYC.

One of the ladies from "Real Housewives of Miami" did a really stupid thing ... she sold the car that Lindsay Lohan was driving this morning when she allegedly struck a pedestrian ... but the registration hasn't been changed, and now she could be on the hook if the alleged victim sues.

Here's the deal -- sources tell TMZ, the Porsche Cayenne Lindsay was driving this morning when she allegedly hit a pedestrian belongs to an artist named Domingo Zapata, a close friend of Lindsay's.  We're told ... roughly 2 months ago Domingo bought the car from Karent Sierra, the "Real Housewives of Miami" star who is also Domingo's dentist.  But the registration hasn't been changed.

0919_karent_domingo_twitterUnder New York law, if the owner of a car gives express or even implied permission for someone to drive and that person gets in an accident that causes property damage or injury, the victims can go after the owner.

As for whether Karent gave express or implied permission ... that's ultimately up to a judge, but if she handed Domingo the keys without telling him no one else could drive it ... she could be screwed.

I am not so sure this sociopathic liar is not gonna run like a coward to rehab. She will be able to use that as an excuse to get out of more jail time. And when she is out of rehab - or jumps the wall - the cycle starts again e.g. she says she is sober when actually drinks everyday, drug seeking behavior starts and her weight and double chins fluxuate depending if she scores coke that day and then she says she is having a comeback and makes up stories about movies that she wont be in and then she gets caught with drugs or drunk driving while partying 365 nights a year

From this guys web page:..
.
"Domingo Zapata (born December 22, 1974) is a Spanish-American contemporary artist, who lives and works between his studios in New York at The Bowery Hotel, Hollywood at the Chateau Marmont Hotel, and in the 16e arrondissement in Paris."
.
Bowery Hotel, Chateau Marmont, I guessing Lohan has found her replacement for Sam Magid.
.
I wonder. What's harder, fencing stolen watches or selling stolen artwork?

Not to be indelicate, but take a good look at the picture of the Dentist and the artist. Does it look like she is going to work on his teeth, or does it look like she's getting ready to hike up that short dress and straddle his head?
