Lindsay Lohan

PANICS

Flies First Class to L.A.

EXCLUSIVE

Lindsay Lohan and her mom Dina took the last flight out of JFK last night and jetted to L.A. after being warned she'd be a wanted woman if she was a no-show in court this morning.

Lindsay -- who is not just broke but deeply in debt -- waited in her car at the airport (above) until the last minute ... then flew first class on American Airlines and landed at around 12:30 AM.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay had no intention of showing up in her lying-to-cops case and got a doctor's note which was filed with the court, saying she couldn't fly because she had an upper respiratory infection. But then we posted pictures of Lindsay shopping and smoking in SoHo the very day she got the doctor's note.

We're told Lindsay went into a panic after we posted our story Tuesday and started calling everyone to find out if we were right ... that the judge would probably issue a warrant for her arrest if she didn't show. Our Lindsay sources say she was pleading with Shawn Holley -- the lawyer she fired -- to come back on the case, saying she didn't like her replacement -- New York lawyer Mark Heller.

Holley made it clear days ago ... she's off the case, so it's now up to Heller, who clearly started off on the wrong foot by submitting the doctor's note, along with a New York Post article saying a lot of people in NYC had the flu.

Heller has another problem -- the lawyer he got to sponsor him to appear in a California court has never met him, and it's possible the judge could deny him the right to represent Lindsay. 

So Lindsay could be lawyerless ... and you know what they say about a client who reps herself ...

We'll be livestreaming the action in court beginning at 8:30 AM.

FFS!
The only way I would pay to see Blo would have been a live-stream of she and DUIna on that plane last night.....an orgy of baggy black leather, gacking, hacking, pill-popping, bathroom costume changes and berating the attendants for more booze and attention.
The airlines will burn the pillows and blankets that they used, right?

Next stop for this bimbo is the Gray Bar Hotel where she'll get 3 hots and a cot, plus all the carpet she can munch. If we're lucky she'll get the Shiv, so we can finally stop hearing about this worthless, no talent, self-entitled meat bag. Please, please Lindsay, jump off the tallest building you can find, and take your idiot parents with you. There are no 3 bigger wastes of space and oxygen than the Lohan's.

Change Of Plans! Lindsay Lohan High-Tails It To L.A. After Claiming She Was Too Sick To Attend Court

Posted on Jan 30, 2013 @ 3:58AM | By Radar Staff


Splash News

In a desperate, last minute change of plans to prevent going back to jail , Lindsay Lohan arrived in Los Angeles early Wednesday morning to attend a court-ordered pre-trial hearing – set to begin in just a matter of hours – after earlier claiming she was too sick to appear in front of the judge, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

LiLo – who claimed she had an upper respiratory infection that prevented her from flying – took the last plane out of JFK Airport in New York, flying first class on American Airlines and landed at LAX around 12:30 a.m. PST. Her mother Dina traveled with her.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, the Liz & Dick star, 26, was taking a huge legal gamble by claiming she was too sick to appear for her hearing, which is scheduled to begin at approximately 8:30 a.m. PST Wednesday.

The reason for her sudden change of plans? She’s been spotted partying in the Big Apple, while claiming she wasn’t feeling well – a fact that the judge would be made aware of.

“For someone claiming to be sick, Lindsay’s partying hasn’t slowed down in the least. Lindsay has been partying and boozing non-stop in New York City,” a source previously told RadarOnline.com exclusively.


“Lindsay has been hanging out with her usual cast of shady friends, and they have been wreaking havoc at swanky hotels in Manhattan. Lindsay doesn’t appear to be sick, and photos reveal that she doesn’t look like someone too gravely ill to travel.”

The Mean Girls star was ordered to appear in a Los Angeles courthouse hearing for charges that she lied to cops in connection with the car accident she was involved with last summer in Santa Monica.

Furthermore, if Lindsay doesn’t appear in court Wednesday morning, prosecutors will “immediately ask Judge Stephanie Sautner to issue a warrant for Lohan’s arrest.

“This isn’t the first time Lindsay has pulled a stunt like this. She claimed her passport was stolen in Cannes, France and failed to appear for an appearance for her DUI case,” a law enforcement insider revealed.


“This isn’t Lindsay’s first trip to the rodeo, and she is just making a total mockery of the legal system.”

Complicating matters is Lindsay’s long suffering criminal defense attorney, Shawn Holley, has formally filed legal do***ents requesting that she be permitted to withdraw her representation of the troubled starlet.


Judge Saunter must sign off on it, and it appears that LiLo’s new lawyer, Mark Heller, who is based in New York City, is having trouble obtaining a license to practice in California.

Heller has a checkered past and was suspended from practicing law for several years after being found guilty of professional misconduct.


If Judge Sautner determines that Lindsay violated terms of her probation from her necklace theft case for getting arrested last summer, she could face up to 245 days in jail.

Morning! I hope that her new lawyer really didn't talk to a psychic cause if she really did predict a good year for Blohan; there is going to be more Gypsy punching come the end of today... she's like a pariah and I guess this one about the Dr's. note was true, since Sterling(a.k.a. her brother most likely) is here denying it and making innuendo that "haters" are all up in arms she is actually going to court as if we were stupid enough to think they were extradite this bitch for a misdemeanor...

You can always HOPE it would happen even if its NOT going to it would make quite a few people's day to watch the SMUG be wiped from her face and the skates she has has nailed to her hooves be removed for once and longer than 84 minutes...
