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.

She was afraid the plane was not safe? When was the last time she was concerned about her safety? It's just more publicity BS. If she would just do the next right thing she would have a life worth living.

nobody.. and I mean NOBODY.. should be enabling her by lending her a private jet!
it is her responsibility to get there
that is part of the problem here- all the enabling!

Gavin tweeted 16 hours ago that he was flying NY - LA - I don't think he's on the jet with Lindsay

Let her off. Poor Lindsey. She just wants to drinks and do drugs a little with an occasional jewelry heist. Big deal.

The Judge is doing more harm to the legal system with his blaient pampering of the "privileged". Why should anybody respect the letter of the law when they see that laws do not apply equally to all? If this were her first misstep with the legal system/ probation issues I could see leniency, but she obviously sees herself as someone who can laugh in the face of the Court as she pulls on the puppet strings of the Judge. He should be removed from the bench! What a joke! Let's face it, she is no Amanda Bines...
