Lindsay Lohan

I'm Keeping My Lawyer

The Media Lies!!!

Lindsay Lohan
doesn't care that the judge in her criminal case and the media have called her lawyer incompetent ... she's sticking with him. 

Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ ... she's angry that the media is painting Mark Heller as a nincompoop.   She says, "It's all lies."

What's more ... Lindsay doesn't care that Judge James Dabney also called Heller incompetent to practice in California.  In fact, the judge was brutally honest ... to the point he said if Lindsay keeps Heller, he'll order her to court for the next hearing to explain why she would be waiving her right to a lawyer who knows what he's doing.

As we first reported ... Michael Lohan reached out to his daughter and offered to pay for a new lawyer, but she turned him down flat.

Lindsay has 12 days to change her mind, because her criminal trial kicks off on the 18th.  If Heller screws up, Lindsay could end up in the pokey for months.

What's the old addage...becareful of what you wish for you may just get it.


No matter what happens Lohan will dump the blame all on Heller.


Lohan always counts on jail overcrowding. Sautner knew about the jails and gave Lohan more community service and other court orders to make up for that fact.


Who ever the trial judge ends up being could very well do the same. Should Lohan get jail it's on the countys dime. All other court orders is out of Lohans pocket. Just a thought.

in this case, the media does not lie. I saw the live stream of Heller in the last hearing. He is clueless. She is full of **** as usual.

@Ernie...Lohan is hell bent on she will not do rehab lockdown or otherwise and will not go to jail. She did nothing wrong and doesn't have a problem and the jury will believe her because she did nothing wrong.


Being Lohan is such a credible upstanding law abideing citizen shouldn't be a problem.

The only plea you should cope to is jail time. Refuse all other deals. No extra probation, rehab, community service, etc. You really do need at least a year in a spirit filled faith based program but you don't see the need. Too bad. You could have had this all behind you back in 2007. However, that will be for another day and time. Right now... off to jail with you... and pray you learn something in there. No plea other than jail ... You can not do anything else... it us just not in you. What you are doing is "kicking the can down the road" again... but that is your m/o. You like to learn the hard way. And the press eats it up. Any news is good news in Jollywood.

QUICK SOMEONE CALL DINA, SHE'S GOT SOME COKE MONEY COMING TO HER

Lindsay Lohan is missing: $1,560...


1 of 10


The troubled actress is owed $1,559.80 by the state of California.

The funds, which are unclaimed wages, were turned over to the state by GEP ATL, LLC and GEPNTV, LLC and are listed in the actress's name courtesy of Artists Agency. LL Rocks Inc., a N.Y.-based company incorporated under the name of Lohan's mother Dina Lohan, is also listed as an owner for the funds.

Related: $58 billion unclaimed: Is some of it yours?

Lohan's cash represents a tiny slice of the more than $6.1 billion held in California's state coffers. Collectively, all 50 states hold $41.7 billion in unclaimed cash and benefits, including abandoned bank accounts and stock holdings, unclaimed life insurance payouts and forgotten pension benefits.

Back in 2004, Tina Fey brought the world a beautiful message with Mean Girls.

Now, in an interview with Ladies' Home Journal's April issue, the Admission star says "beautiful, healthy Lindsay Lohan" is the first thing that comes to mind when she thinks back on the beloved flick


NOW TINA CAN'T SAY THAT ANYMORE. LINDSAY LOOKS LIKE A 45 YEAR OLD HOMELESS JUNKIE.

@Nikki...yeah, once upon a time in a land far, far away. Tina Fey was just being polite.


All the crap Lohan pulled on SNL espically with the writers blameing them for Lohan bombing so bad, Fey was suppose to be there but used her daughter being sick so not to show. Yeah,she was also completly disgusted with Lohan.
