Since getting out of rehab back over the summer Lindsay Lohan has been trying to stay out of trouble and putting in lots of work all over the place. The Oprah Winfrey interview, her Chelsea Lately appearance– all things seemed to be going pretty well for her. Although she and Oprah did get into a little beef over the reality series she’s filming for the OWN network, for the most part LiLo’s been staying drama-free. However, the actress is now in some hot water with Foxwoods casino after showing up hella late to an appearance, for which she received $50,000. Click inside for more.
TMZ has the report:
Lindsay Lohan was paid north of $50,000 to host a Halloween party at a casino last night, sources tell TMZ — but she was so late … the casino wants a chunk of its money back.
Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Lindsay was paid to show up to Foxwoods casino in Connecticut at 10pm, but she didn’t arrive until 11:43pm.
When she finally did show up, we’re told she blew off the red carpet — where she was supposed to pose for photos and talk to fans — and walked straight into the party.
We’re told Foxwoods is now trying to renegotiate Lindsay’s contract because the casino feels she screwed them over.
Lindsay didn’t completely drop the ball. We’re told she and co-host Floyd Mayweather Jr. judged the Halloween costume contest together and actually did a decent job. (FYI, Lindsay was dressed as Carrie and Floyd was dressed as Freddy Krueger.)
For what it’s worth, we’re told Floyd (who was paid about the same as Lindsay) was late too — but he made up for it by spending time with fans, signing autographs and taking photos.
Lindsay, not so much.
Other reports are saying that Lindsay did a good job hosting the event, so I’m guessing she tried to make up for the fact that she was later and that she blew off her red carpet appearance. Here’s hoping whatever went down can be resolved between Lindsay and Foxwoods without a whole lotta hoopla.
What do you guys think about Lindsay’s appearance? Should she be forced to chalk up some of that money?
