Lindsay Goes To Jail Today — And Her Lawyer Quits

CelebritiesDirt Bag
  • Lindsay Lohan‘s lawyer—Robert Shapiro, of O.J. Simpson “Dream Team” fame—quit last night, apparently because Lindsay refuses to follow his instructions. This is the second time a lawyer has dropped her for being difficult.

Shapiro’s decision came at kind of a bad time for Lohan – the night before she was to begin her jail sentence. Lilo is more than a little worried about the 90-day sentence – which starts today. She tweeted last night: “The only ‘bookings’ that I’m familiar with are Disney Films, never thought that i’d be ‘booking’ into Jail… eeks.” [NYP]

  • Radar Online has a video of Lohan moving out of the sober house where she has been living in preparation to enter jail. Basically, it’s Lindsay running from cameras, so if you’re so inclined… [Radar]
  • Even before Shapiro quit, Michael Lohan was already on his case, claiming that he wasn’t doing enough to keep Lindsay out of prison and in rehab. His daughter posted about the scandal on Twitter. “I don’t want my ex-father anywhere near me no matter where I am. He is crazy and scares me,” she said, in a series of Tweets. “I am in a great place and he only brings negativity in my world.” [Daily Express]
  • Oksana Grigorieva turned down a $15 million offer from Mel Gibson, a source says. The sum was intended to keep Grigorieva quiet, but though she initially agreed to the deal, she ultimately chose to preserve her leverage. [NYDN]
  • Fox News has reported that Grigorieva may be facing legal problems of her own – as is her dentist, who failed to report Grigorieva’s injuries to the authorities. []
  • More problems for Grigorieva: Oksana’s texts to Mel may make the conversations that she secretly taped inadmissible in court. [TMZ]

  • The cast of the Jersey Shore might be getting a pay raise after all. They have requested $30,000 per episode, and MTV is in negotiations with cast members to make that happen, even though they were originally signed up to receive just $10,000 an episode for the second season. [Perez Hilton]
  • And maybe they should thank The Situation. According to Mike Sorrentino’s manager, the Jersey Shore‘s most abdominally-obsessed star reached a “secret” deal with MTV, which he believes will end the strike. [TMZ]

  • Sheryl Crow has responded to accusations that she only adopted her sons in attempts to boost her music career. “I think people don’t understand: it’s not like you can go to some outlet and pick up a baby because you’ve got a record to promote. An adoptive mother goes through more hoops than those people who thoughtlessly become pregnant,” she told You magazine. [Daily Express]
  • Twinings has made Lady Gaga a multi-million-pound offer to represent the tea company, claims a source.

  • Miley Cyrus is pissed at Taylor Momsen, who said last week that Cyrus’s music was “Disney bubblegum shit.” A source told Heat magazine that “Miley is furious – who wouldn’t be? She thought Taylor was pretty cool until this happened… Miley has always had a lot of talent, and Taylor knows it. Taylor still sees her as a threat, which she is, although they’re hardly in the same league. Miley gets a little risky on stage, but she knows that it’s a performance, whereas Taylor doesn’t seem to know where to draw the line. It’s sad, really.” [Digital Spy]
