Lindsay Lohan

Cutting It Real Close

3/18/2013 5:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

1229-lindsay-lohan-tmzLindsay Lohan's court hearing is less than three hours away and she still has not arrived in Los Angeles ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, LiLo hopped off her scheduled flight from New York to Los Angeles just before take off last night because she felt the plane was unsafe.

Lindsay eventually found a flight, tweeting at around 4:00 AM PT and thanking Mr. Pink -- an energy drink company -- for lending her a private jet.

According to our sources, the flight won't land in Los Angeles until around 6:30-7:00 AM PT ... meaning Lindsay has roughly 1.5 hours to make it to court, which starts at 8:30 AM PT. It might be enough time, but you have to factor in that Lindsay needs to make herself "camera ready."

And then there's this ... we know Lindsay's plane is set to land at the airport in Van Nuys. That means she has to travel around 20 miles to get to the hearing today at the Airport Courthouse. And it's gonna be rush hour!

According to our sources, Lindsay is not alone on the flight. She's traveling with her ex-assistant Gavin. He was the one who rolled on Lindsay and told the cops she was driving the car (despite her claims otherwise). The incident played a major role in their decision to charge her with lying to police.

Lindsay could have avoided all of this if she stayed on her original flight to LA. Even though it took off an hour late and was diverted to Las Vegas ... it still arrived in Los Angeles last night at 11:30 PM.

But if Lindsay made smart decisions, we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place.

She has no respect for the court and she needs to learn that her actions have consequences. Lock her up for some real time, not a day or two, make her do the full sentence.

She should have BEEN back in LA not flying Sunday night...
But I'd be off that plane too! If they delay take-off to "fix" something, they're rushing. If it's minor ok but fuel leak? Um...NO.
They didn't really fix it either, they had to divert in Las Vegas for more fuel. So, it was full in NY=still leaking if you can't make it to LA.

It would be so funny if she tried to make a run for it. But where to? Russia? Saudi Arabia? The Vatican?

"Lindsay needs to make herself "camera ready.""

So, that means wiping Mr. Pink's *** from her chin, plastering on some makeup & picking the cigarette butts from her hair, right?

On some level, she must want to implode - a normal person would be way too anxious to pull the things she does. Although, if she has a driver waiting and fixes herself up in route, she can certainly make it from Van Nuys to the LAX area in that time, even during rush hour.

She can get ready for court in the planes lavatory. She needs to get use to doing things in confined spaces.

I think this girl is more afraid of rehab than she is of jail. With that said, I say the judge should sentence her to 1 year in a lock down rehab of the COURTS choosing. That may be the only thing that might save her miserable life.

So, was her in-flight b-job good enough to get Gavin to testify in court that he was the one driving?
-
More importantly, will that matter, since the prosecution has witnesses that she was the one behind the wheel? I have a feeling the judge is more likely to believe the witnesses than Linday's former assistant.

Wonder how much she's paying Gavin to be her friend after she tried to push him under the bus. I bet in her moronic mind he'll take the stand and say how awesome she is and that'll be the end of it.

Actually Lindsay thanked some guy named Hasan. Must be another one of her arab "helpers". Must be nice to have a network of wealthy arab men to fall back on. Hmmmm......
