Lindsay Lohan

I Didn't Want to Fire Shawn

BUT ...

1/14/2013 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lindsay Lohan
is telling friends ... she never authorized her New York lawyer to fire Shawn Holley and never instructed him to send her a letter of termination ... but there's one BIG problem with her story.

Sources connected with attorney Mark Heller tell TMZ ... Lindsay SIGNED the letter he sent to Holley earlier today, giving her the boot.

TMZ broke the story ... Holley was 86'd just before a scheduled meeting with the judge and prosecutor in Lindsay's lying-to-cops case, trying to plea bargain it away.

Lindsay is now telling friends ... she desperately wants Shawn back on board. She's saying she thinks of Shawn as a second mother -- interesting, considering she barely has a first. 

Lindsay says she knows Shawn is an ace in court and she would never drop her the day before she's scheduled to go to court. As you know, the judge set a hearing tomorrow to decide if Lindsay violated her probation in the jewelry heist case by allegedly lying to cops in the car accident case. Again ... Lindsay signed that letter.

Lindsay says she's instructed Heller to send Shawn another letter cancelling the first.

As for whether Shawn will take her back ...

Stay tuned ...

How much you want to bet that the whole reason this happened is because this new guy offered to represent her for FREE a la Gloria Allred publicity stunt style... and that Lindsey is in major debt to Shawn, and that may be part of why she signed the paperwork and agreed to the switch... and now, she regrets it, not knowing the guy is a slimeball.

Lindsay Lohan has fired her other attorney Mark Heller in a late evening dispute about payment arrangements and jail time. Sources close to Lindsay revealed Heller took a handful of Viagra prior to meeting with Linds and Linds was furious! “I’m not an all-night sucker” Linds is reportedly to have said after steaming out of his pied a Terre with a glistening face and filthy leggings “That Mofo said I was going to jail!” The Z List star then went to the Meatpacking District in lower Manhattan, picked up some random skank a$$ed low life chicks and started with the nasty.

Shawn Holley was so concerned about getting Linds on a waiting private jet to bring her to court in LA Tuesday morning that she launched an All-Points Bulletin to locate the missing scofflaw. According to Detective Zeph “She's a lying, balding, smelly, mangy, duck-lipped, rotten-toothed, drunk, drug-addled, saggy-boobed, fetid, unclean, unemployable, uninsurable, thieving, aging, clamslamming, nasty, narcissistic, diseased, coke snorting, untalented, debt-ridden, tax-evading, chicken-legged, flabby-assed, contemptuous, worthless, filthy, disgusting, vomit-inducing, moldy, lazy, slimy, homeless, wretched, reptilian-skinned, skanky, shifty-eyed, halitosis-laden, grifting, graffiti-littered, cue card-reading, attention-craving, fire alarm pulling, cell phone stealing, toilet-clogging, trailer-trashing, miserable, entitled, triple-chinned, hotel-dwelling, bracelet-stealing, Taliban-sucking, insect infected, dried-up bag of vagina, a Canyon-holed Snatchasouras, with delusions of grandeur, dirty fingernails and a porno-only career. If you see her, don’t approach her and call 911!”

She's the world's biggest dumbass. I hope the judge kicks her ass into jail immediately, and into general population. Let the gen pop girls beat the sh*t out of her daily, intimidate her, steal her stuff. She needs a jail experience so horrifying that she'll do anything to avoid going back, including acting like a law abiding citizen & not a brain dead arrogant entitled dumbass...

Lohan knew her court date in California was the 15th of January. Hell she had 6-7 weeks of knowing a head of time Court Date January 15th.

Lohan had no intension of showing up for court.

She fired her attorney Shawn Holley on the 14th and that's suppose to cover her not showing up on the 15th court date in Calfornia. Lohan looking to stall and firing Holley is another stall tactic.

Prosecutors, Shawn Holley fired, Lindsay Lohans intensional no show. Up to the judge.

Lindsay Lohan Owes Her Fired Attorney Over $300k In Unpaid Legal Fees!
Posted on Jan 14, 2013 @ 15:13PM | By Jen Heger

WENNLindsay Lohan owes her recently fired, long standing criminal defense attorney, Shawn Holley, a whopping $300,000 plus in unpaid legal fees and hasn’t made a payment to the famed lawyer in more than half a year, is exclusively reporting.

“Lindsay owes Shawn over $300k in legal fees and she hasn’t made any payments to her in over six months,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Lindsay hadn’t paid anything for any of the work Shawn has done on her three new criminal charges of lying to cops, in connection with her car accident in Santa Monica last summer. Shawn has kept Lindsay out of jail for over five years now and she has no idea how good she has had it. Shawn is extremely respected by judges and prosecutors and that has benefited Lindsay greatly. Lindsay’s new criminal attorney, Mark Heller, isn’t even based in Los Angeles and certainly doesn’t have the revered reputation that Shawn does.”

As previously reported, Lohan is currently on probation for stealing a necklace from a Venice jewelry store. Meantime, she will be back in court on January 15 to be arraigned on her latest charges.

Lohan is required to be in court for the arraignment, at which time she will be required to enter a plea. A date will also be set for a probation violation hearing, and if the troubled actress is found to be guilty, she could be sent to jail for up to six months.

“I suspect that Lindsay’s new attorney is either representing her for a reduced fee, or not charging her at all,” the source says. “I think Mark wants the publicity that representing Lindsay Lohan can bring.”

Is this possibly just an attempt to delay today's court appearance?

Holley will take her back with open arms, Lohan is a cash cow that will be putting Holleys kids through college and buying them all houses. Lohans a headache but the kind of headache you want. If I was a lawyer I'd take Lind$ay on anyday.
