Lindsay to Barbara Walters

Sorry, I Won't Talk

About The Crash

Exclusive Details

1109_lindsay_barbara_01
Lindsay Lohan has officially pulled out of her "20/20" interview with Barbara Walters ... and TMZ has learned it was all because her new PR team didn't want Babs to grill Lilo like a cheeseburger over the ongoing investigation in her car crash.

Lindsay was scheduled to sit down with Walters this week ... and we're told when she originally agreed to the interview, it was supposed to focus on her new movie, "Liz & Dick."

But sources close to the actress tell us ... in the past week, producers made it clear to Lohan that Barbara wanted to talk about her personal life as well ... including allegations that she lied to police about the June car crash on Pacific Coast Highway.

We're told Lindsay's new PR team, Rogers & Cowan, felt it would be a mistake to put Lindsay in the hot seat ... where she could possibly say something that could screw up her case ... so they pulled the plug.

Sources tell us Lindsay feels terrible for canceling on Barbara, especially since she considers Walters a family friend, and wants to reschedule as soon as her team feels the time is right.

10:31 AM PT -- An ABC News spokesperson tells TMZ ... "We are disappointed that Lindsay cancelled the interview and wish her well."

-----------------------------------------------

While this is all for shts and giggles, I feel it important to share an observation that is commin to both Rogue and Red Cloud.

The DSM has basic tests for persoanlity disorders, but if you have done case studies as I actually did on personality disorders in college, one of the major persoanlity traits of a person with Narcissitic personality disorder is that they have trouble going to current movies, watching the newsor tv at all etc. This is a threat to their importance. You should not be involved in any other focus other than them not to mention the grandiosity and a dozen other traits they exhibit.

Point is that both cloud and rouge drop drive by bombs that are indefensible and of a low level of intelligence and say GONE. In their minds they believe they are ahead of the game if they pretend that people's responses do not exist.

E.g., You are a big dummy and Im gonna kill your cat what do you think of that ahole - Im gone!!!!!

LOS ANGELES - Lindsay Lohan and a limousine company have settled the firm's lawsuit alleging she had unpaid bills of more than $90,000, a court clerk said today.

Lohan was sued in October 2011 by Elite Transportation Limousine and Security Services for $90,585. A final status conference was scheduled today, but a clerk for Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa Sanchez-Gordon said the case was resolved. No terms were divulged.

Lohan, 26, used the limousine company between February and May 2009, booking cars for friends and family as well as for herself to get to Los Angeles-area airports and her Southland residences, according to the suit.

Lohan incurred $33,978 in bills for the service, which rose to more than $90,000 with late fees, the complaint stated.

Lohan's lawyers denied their client was liable for the late fees and other charges, stating in their court papers that they were "grossly excessive."

LOL Rihanna is the QUEEN of denial and the first one to say that her screwing up her own life and safety is nobody's business... and even she was smart enough to do the in depth interview, even though obviously two years later she's like OH NO J/K IT WASN'T THAT BAD AFTER ALL.

Dumb move LiLo.

Good thing Lindsay did not do the BW interview to air next Friday. Next Friday is the Whitney Houston Grammy Tribute. The new PR team is fantastic.

Both Elvis and Charles Manson have a better shot than Lindsay at a comeback.
