Lindsay Lohan Wants A Free Lawyer
Starlets like Lindsay Lohan are used to getting free swag but Lindsay may be taking this sense of entitlement a little too far.
RadarOnline claims that Lindsay wants to find a lawyer who will work for her for free since “she doesn’t think she should pay for a new lawyer.” Oh, is that how it works? If we don’t feel like paying for something, we don’t have to? Looks like we unlocked the secrets of Hollywood.
Lindsay’s former lawyer, Sawn Chapman Holley, abruptly quit last week after Lindsay was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in inpatient rehab after she was convicted of violating her probation stemming from a 2007 DUI case. The Mean Girls actress has been shopping for a lawyer ever since but she can’t seem to find the right one, which might have something to do with the fact she won’t be willing to pay the high-powered lawyers she is interviewing.
However, Lindsay’s reluctance to pay might not be from her alleged sense of entitlement, another source claims that Lindsay is too poor to afford a good lawyer:
The type of lawyers Lindsay is used to having are expensive because they are simply the best at what they do. Lindsay just doesn’t have the money that she used to pay for the best. The lawyers she is interviewing wouldn’t represent her for free, period.
Lindsay most recently interviewed O.J. Simpson’s former lawyer, Robert Shapiro, but he has yet to decide if he wants to take on her case or not.
The 24-year-old starlet is desperate to find a new lawyer so she can appeal her sentence and avoid jail time. Unfortunately for Lindsay, time is running out: She is expected to turn herself in next week.
Lindsay recently checked herself into a “sober house” late last night perhaps in an effort to avoid jail time, although it isn’t clear how the sober house would protect her from serving out her sentence. Lindsay is expected to serve 90 days in jail and an additional 90 days in an inpatient rehab facility.
