Lindsay Lohan

Cutting It Real Close

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.

As I said yesterday, this spoiled bitch just didn't want to take a commercial flight.

Oh please! She and her wormy lawyer are playing the stall game again. Plus she always want to make it look like a HUGE effort to get to HER court date. As if she should be praised for getting there at all. Whole thing is b.s. plus it totally reveals her crackhead mother for what she really is also.....a User. Anyone who enables this mess at stalling and not facing consequences really cannot be too concerned her wellbeing.

She's gonna be stinky in court. All night flight where she was likely scruing or giving b-jobs to pay for favors, and she won't have time for a shower between the airport & court. Ewwwww.
She'll be reeking of too much cheap perfume to try and hide the stench.

if she really left her bag of stolen items on her first plane what is she going to wear to court?

she going to steal a table cloth from the private jet?

they should count the stemware and flatware before she gets off the plane.

@LA NATIVE: Your news said she'd land between 6:30 and 7 right? So how bad of a drive is it from Van Nuys to Airport Courthouse?

None of the other 'celebrity-friendly' gossip sites, US and People, are reporting on LL. How low has she fallen? Girl needs a massive life change, starting first with rehab.

If Lohan actually shows up in court this morning than I'll believe it.

This whole mystery flight that was delayed an hour 35 people got off had to re-fule in Vegas.

All of a sudden Lohan gets on a private jet also haveing to re-fule in Vegas and Gavin Doyle on the same plane.

And still not 1 photo of Lohan from anywhere or anyone. Not in an airport, a lounge, in the terminal no where.

Makes you wonder if she's even in L.A. Oh, wait. Is Lohan stuck in Vegas now.
