Lindsay Lohan

I'm Suing the Dude

Who Said I Was Wasted

9/23/2012 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0922-tmz-lindsay-lohanLinsday Lohan may be a really bad driver, but she was not a really bad drunk driver this week ... so she's going to sue the guy who accused her of DWB -- Driving While Blotto.

You'll recall.... Jose Rodriguez claims Lindsay struck him while she was driving a Porsche this week in NYC.  Rodriguez gave an interview to a reporter and claimed Lindsay was slurring and "smelled like alcohol real bad" at the time of the incident.

The cops and others say Lindsay had not been drinking and alcohol was not a factor in the alleged incident.

We're told Lindsay believes she could lose work if people think she's off the wagon, so she's planning on suing Rodriguez for defamation.

Lindsay is saying, "I'm tired of people lying just to score a quick paycheck."

She's a liar, thief and a con artist. Since she can't act, that is her only way of earning money now.

I actually think this is a legal ploy for tactical advantage rather than for publicity (or for money). This person could still sue her and has already made claims of injury even though the video doesn't really seem to support it. By suing him, it gives her leverage in any civil case he tries to bring against her. She can make his life miserable as he undoubtedly would like t o make hers and simultaneously send a strong message to anyone else thinking about blatantly lying on her. I'm not saying that it will work, but I can definitely see the logic in doing so and would think that this would have been suggested by her counsel rather than cooked up by Lohan and Co. circus. I don't think it is a bad maneuver at all.

She can try suing in small Clams court, but she would lose there, too. She would have to PROVE that she lost work. Is she going to say that Zapata was going to hire her, then didn't? Doubt it. Think Zapata is smarter than that. MILO needs to stop with his tired old routine of "Linds is sober, she's going to sue" crap. Nobody is buying it. I hope she DOES try to sue. It would be perfect for the Chateau Marmont and all the others waiting for their HONESTLY earned money to find her. Linds needs more TV time? How about going on Judge Judy's show with this lawsuit, Linds? I would LOVE to see her rip you a new one and she would. BUT, you would be on TV. LMAO

I never write comments but today I am pissed at the crap that people write about this girl in case you people did not see the video that man walked right in front of the car on purpose just so he can sue. The police you have arrested him for wasting their time. I am 100% with Lindsay she should sue him. Maybe that will start a trend and people will stop with all these false claims to get money..

Yes Lindsay, it is all those people out there who are lying about you who are causing you to lose work.

How about taking responsibility for the fact that it is your own actions that is impacting your career.

I don't believe this article for a second. Heck they aren't even claiming "sources" ... now it's "we're told".

But...even Lindsay's Mother just admitted in her latest interview that Lindsay still drinks. Plus there are the photographs of her with the martini glass in her hand.

Of course she's suing. That's what she does. Nearly kill someone then sue them for talking to the media. Now have to say this guy might be lying but.....her track record tells a better truth than she does.

Ahh, she is a mess. She should know that people are watching her. When she is under such scrutiny, she needs to get her s##t together and stay under the radar. Get a driver, get a friend to drive, because anytime she is driving, she gets into trouble. Get into stealth mode for a while until this court drama goes away. Kick back and let that Amanda Bynes be the focus.

The Lohans are white trash and they are trashier than HONEY BOO BOO CHILDS family. At least HBB's family don't get in trouble with the law on a weekly bases. One more thing, Honey boo boo's family has more moneyyyyyyyy!

The only reason Lohan has no credible work is because she's not a credible actress, period. It's so ghetto to sue every Tom, Dick and Harry. Get a real job Lohan.
