Lindsay Lohan

I Won't Be In Court ...

I'm Sick

1/29/2013 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0129_lindsay_lohan_soho_shopping_launchLindsay Lohan is gonna be in a heap of trouble tomorrow ... we've learned she will NOT be in an L.A. court Wednesday as required, because she claims she's sick ... but pictures prove otherwise.

We've learned Lindsay's new lawyer, Mark Heller, submitted documents notifying the judge she's too ill to fly.  Heller submitted a note from a Park Avenue doctor who says Lindsay has an upper respiratory infection and can't fly for her own safety as well as the safety of the public.

Heller also submitted an article from the New York Post from January 11, reporting that a flu epidemic has hit the Big Apple.

But take a look at the pictures showing Lindsay on an all-day shopping spree in SoHo Saturday -- the same day the doctor allegedly examined her. She's even smoking ... which doesn't seem like great idea for someone with a respiratory infection.


Interesting ... the judge hasn't even approved Heller -- a New York lawyer -- to appear in a California court on Lindsay's behalf and already there are shenanigans.

As for Lindsay ... she's in trouble.  The judge could issue a warrant for her arrest if the excuse proves bogus.

Since she has never had any "real" punishment for ANY of her actions she feels like she can do whatever she wants. She's pretty much been doing that from the start. You would think the judge would get smart and throw her ass in jail, but no, just another slap on the wrist and out ya go. And yet if it were any of us, we'd be in jail.

my husband is asthmatic and is considered steroid-dependent. his job require that he travels overseas a lot. he takes his puffer and his prednisone everywhere. he has no trouble flying. even when he has an infection. he just makes sure he stays on antibiotics and drinks plenty of water during the flight. his flight is about 16 hours.

doesn't it take about 5 hours to fly from ny into la?

if my husband makes long flights with no problem, HOhan can make it cross country.

she's a lying, thieving, ungrateful, famewhoring, orange slut.

Just me    

This girl is suicidal. This girl needs help asap. Her dysfunctional parents. (having only 1 dysfunctional parent is bad enough) but, having 2. This girl needs to run and never look back. As it is now she should be having therapy the rest of her life. The amount she drinks = alcohol dementia after that is no turning back. To me it looks like she has no close friends who can or will help. Her parents forget it. They helped destroy her. She will be serving time but, he troubles will never go away until........

no disrespect to the judicial system but WTF. Is the judge a fan of this girl? Since when does a note from "epsteins mother" work for the law?Why can't she just go away and how is she shopping if the feds seized her accounts .?I've got an idea for tmz .. how bout not reporting on her until she is in jail ? i figure that way we will never hear about her again. the judges in cali must all have weed scripts or the bar is set real low to become one . is anyone as perplexed as me on this bimbo ?

Lindsay Lohan is supposed to drag her pregnant slug lips into a court room in Los Angeles tomorrow morning to face a judge, but surprise, surprise, she's not going to. TMZ says that LiLo's NYC lawyer Mark Heller gave a letter to the judge in California from her doctor on Park Avenue that says that she's got the flu, or something, and can't get on a flight, because she doesn't want to infect the other passengers. Mark Heller also gave the judge an article from the New York Post about how the flu has become the biggest threat to NYC. Correction: LiLo is the biggest health threat to NYC, the flu is a distant second.

LiLo could go to jail for lying to the cops in that car crash case and the judge said in a hearing a couple of weeks ago that she must show her face in court. Mark Heller isn't going to be in court for her and LiLo's ex-lawyer Shawn Holley wants nothing to do with her anymore, so she won't be in court either. The judge could either issue a warrant for her arrest for once again pulling a excuse out of her or the judge could play nice and reschedule the hearing.

TMZ is accusing LiLo of doing something she never does, LYING, because they have pictures of her shoplifting shopping in SoHo on Saturday, the same day the doctor diagnosed her with the flu. How dare they accuse an innocent and honest human person of lying! I'll have them know that Lindsay Lohan has the walking flu (sort of like that walking pneumonia she had). She has to walk around stores in SoHo and steal things or it'll get worse. Her doctor says so and everything.

And LiLo is really getting out of court with a doctor's note? That's some 8th grade I'm surprised she didn't use the excuse almost every girl in my 9th grade P.E. class used when they didn't want to go in the pool: I'M ON MY PERIOD! Strangely enough, I used that excuse too when I didn't want to go in the pool and it worked.

LOL!!! dlisted nails it again.

They should have a poll question: Who's the bigger drama queen, Lindsay or the TMZ writer? As in, she's in big trouble, could get arrested. Heard that one before?

Blohan knows CA won't pay to extradite her from NY. So she'll continue to just stay away. As far as 'work' in CA, no worries there, her 'acting career' is finished. What happens when Coachella comes around in mid April?

She is really sick alright, shopping and smoking, probably to broke to fly, and she has a date with one of her escorts tonight, can't let court get in the way of some cash. Liar Hohan.

FFS! Please stop dragging Robert Downey Jrs' name through the cesspool of Blo.

In his depths of addiction, he had it more together than Blo. And even if she did ever manage climb out of her cesspool, Blo would never come near to what he has been able to achieve.

Lol real mature here. This isn't high school where you're skipping class. Its way over time she went to jail and learned a lesson. She doesn't care for her job, is a pain to other actors, brushes off the law and apparently court dates. She's had more opportunities than any non celebrity deserves by far and then some.
