Lindsay Lohan walked into a courtroom yesterday, where she was arraigned for grand theft after she reportedly walked out of an LA jewelry store with a $2,500 gold necklace. She’s now taken to Twitter to address the controversy.
We also noted the other day that Lohan pleaded not guilty to the charge and had bail set at $40,000 ($20,000 for the charger and $20,000 for parole violation).
Throughout all this, sources close to her have maintained that she did not steal the necklace she’s accused of stealing: she had it as a loaner and her assistant forgot to return it on time.
This marks the first time that Lindsay personally talks about the much mediated, recent legal problem: and she’s doing it on Twitter.
In the same tweet, the actress also sets the record straight on that infamous white dress that she wore to court yesterday and that many considered “inappropriate” for a date with justice, because it was more suitable for a night out clubbing.
“i just want to be on set again, and left alone to just work! fyi - i would never steal, in case people are wondering,” Lohan says on Twitter.
She goes on to say that stealing would go against anything she was taught while growing up.
“I was not raised to lie, cheat, or steal... also, what i wear to court shouldnt be front page news. it’s just absurd. god bless xox L,” she continues.
Perhaps this would explain why her mother Dina is not in the least bit worried about the possibility of having her daughter spend the next 3 years of her life in jail if she’s found guilty on the grand theft charge.
Dina knows that Lindsay couldn’t steal. Dina also knows that God has their back in this, as she says in a brief statement to PopEater.
“All good. God has a big plan,” Dina says when asked about Lindsay’s latest problems.
