Hollywood Dirt: Judge Mocks Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna Defends Chris Brown Reconciliation & More
LOHAN LUNACY – JUDGE MOCKS LINDSAY: LINDSAY LOHAN has been the object of zingers from radio djs and comedians, and yesterday the judge in her probation case got in on the act mocking LiLo with a snide “glad to see you’re feeling better” when she entered the courtroom.
The blast was an obvious reference to the fact that Lindsay tried to skip the hearing, claiming she was too sick with an upper respiratory infection to travel cross country. Linds quickly changed her mind, taking a late flight after TMZ posted photos of her smoking and shopping.
Much of the hearing dealt with Lindsay’s representation officially being turned over to attorney Mark Heller after Shawn Holly quit her. In addition, the State of California set a March 1st pre-trial date, and a March 18th trial date for Lindsay’s case. She is accused of lying to cops following a car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway last year. Lohan is not required to appear at the pre-trial hearing. The judge did inform her though, that even if she’s found not guilty of lying, her probation in her jewelry case could still be revoked.
Oh, by the way … after that frantic flight to make the court date, TMZ reports Linds and her mom were turned away at two hotels. First, the high-end Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica told them to beat it because apparently Lindsay has been blacklisted there for allegedly trashing a room in 2007. They then tried the Loews Hotel up the road, but were told there were no available rooms.

After being tormented for so many years, being angry and dark, I’d rather just live my truth and take the backlash.”
But RiRi adds that she won’t stand for any more abuse from Brown. “He doesn’t have the luxury of f–king up again,” she says. “That’s just not an option. [But] I wouldn’t have gone this far if I ever thought that was a possibility.”
