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."

and YOu know why cause they demanded "Cash up Front " thats why.....and moneyman paid it......
She's still making herself scarce I see......till the DA in LA gets his payoff and suddenly decide they don't have enough evidence....that is...the Punchline story ...Help just jumped the Gun ......thats all it will come.....no doubt in my mind....

The charges were not filed, YET so just because they were not at the end of the week doesn't mean squat. That date was never set in stone by Santa Monica. She's drowning her worries in coke by the picture I saw of her this morning. Maybe she will do the world a favor and OD or alcohol poisoning. Wait, I don't want that. She's too entertaining watching her meltdown.

I read an interesting online article from the LA Times that pertains to this case. The city is reviewing 9200 plus warrants that have been issued for probation violations. Because of severe jail overcrowding the city is considering dropping most of these cases. LINNOCENT......LiLO WALKS!!!!!
