In a turn of events eerily similar to those surrounding the death of Whitney Houston earlier this year, paramedics and the fire department were called to Lohan’s room after she failed to arrive on set, which luckily for Lindsay, is in the same hotel. Girl could literally get a dumbwaiter to work.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a spokeswoman for the LA County Sheriff’s Department, Nicole Nishida, said Lindsay is now fine but suffering from “exhaustion… She was not transported to hospital and is okay.”
Lohan’s publicist, Steve Honig – whose friends must’ve dubbed him Steve ‘Tough Gig’ Honig – released a similar statement saying LiLo “has worked a gruelling schedule the past few days. She was on set last night at 7 p.m. and worked through the night until 8 a.m. this morning. She took a nap before shooting her final scene. Producers were concerned when she did not come out of her room and called paramedics as a precaution. Lindsay was examined and is fine, but did suffer some exhaustion and dehydration.”
The episode comes a week after La Lohan crashed a rented black Porsche into the back of a truck on her way to a film set, then got caught in even hotter water (if that’s possible because it must be scalding by now) for reportedly having a hush-money fund for these kind of incidents.
Earlier this week it was confirmed that Lindsay would also star in the upcoming Bret Easton Ellis “LA noir” on a “micro-budget”, The Canyons, opposite porn star James Deen.
I can’t help but think that one of the sadder things about all this is that you know Lifetime are going to want to make a made-for-television movie about Lindsay’s life one day. I can only hope a) she doesn’t give them any further cause to and b) I won’t be around to see it.
Get well soon, Linds – stay indoors. Get room service. Ride a dumbwaiter.
UPDATE: Lindsay has tweeted an explanation while you were sleeping:
