Lindsay Lohan the Modern Day Winona?
Lindsay Lohan is in the news again today, this time for theft. Remember way back when when Winona Ryder was caught shoplifting at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills with merchandise totaling more than $5000 worth of merchandise which included a Gucci dress and a Marc Jacobs floral printed thermal top. She was taken in for felony grand theft and possession of pharmaceutical drugs lacking a prescription. Because of this, she was sentenced to 3 years in prison and 480 hours of community service. Is this what it has come down to with the famous star?
Well it seems like Lindsay Lohan, renown as drug addict and now serial burglar....
First she's in and out of rehab to fix her drug problems. And now when we thought all was under control for Lindsay she's in the news again for a different matter: theft. Lindsay allegedly stole a necklace from a Venice jewelry store worth over $2500. Before LAPD conducted a search warrant at her Venice pad, Lindsay's rep returned the necklace back to the store owner. A source close to Lindsay says,
"She didn't STEAL the necklace, she borrowed it. It was understood that she was allowed to wear the necklace for a certain period of time and return it -- that was always the deal. She didn't steal anything and she returned it immediately when they asked for it back."
Not only is this on her record, but in May 2008 Lindsay was suspected of stealing a $11,000 mink coat from a Colombia co-ed and in August 2010, a rolex watch. It's obvious Lindsay's taste is not cheap, but when you have millions of dollars in the bank, why even steal in the first place? And why does she keep getting little slaps on the wrist in society and at court. If a normal person were accused of theft AND drug possession, they would be locked up GUARANTEED!
Lindsay's next court date is scheduled February 25, and critics are wondering what outfit she will wear this time. Her last court appearance created buzzworthy news again when she showed up in a white Glavis dress worth $575. Not only was it not appropriate for court, but in reality it is pretty fashionable and cute. This dress sold out within days of Lindsay's court appearance. Who knew despite all the negative press, she still can have great power in the fashion industry.
