Lindsay Lohan has reportedly outright rejected pal Charlie Sheen’s offer to be her mentor and savior. Sources close to Lindsay are telling TMZ today that the actress wishes Charlie Sheen would just shut up. Lohan is facing trial later this month in Los Angeles for lying to cops about her June car accident there. If a deal is not struck, Lindsay will have to suffer the testimony of her former assistant and friend who is set to testify against her. This comes as the new judge in her case told off her new lawyer in open court Friday, calling him unfit to practice criminal law in California.
Lindsay, 26, does appreciate all that Sheen has done for her so far, including forking over $100,000 to help pay her back taxes, as well as supporting her in her role in “Scary Movie 5”. But, Lohan is adamant that Charlie is not the right person to guide her just because he’s had his own struggles and personal demons.
The “Liz & Dick” actress does still have occasional contact with her “Anger Management” friend, but she is complaining to friends that Sheen has no business talking her up in the media.
Radar Online is reporting today that Lindsay’s former assistant and cohort, Gavin Doyle, is fully cooperating with prosecutors and is totally prepared to go into court and testify against her. He was the passenger in the Porsche Lohan crashed last summer.
Sources say Gavin will tell the truth that Lindsay was driving that day because he has nothing to hide, and because he is, “extremely concerned for her health and well-being”.
Lohan may be shocked if Doyle takes the stand against her, but insiders are saying that he won’t have to be forced to do so. Gavin simply wants Lindsay to “get her life together”.
At Friday’s hearing in L.A., Judge Jim Dabney read the riot act to Lindsay’s new attorney Mark Heller, claiming he is incompetent to practice law in California. The judge then denied his motion to dismiss and set the trial date for March 18.
Even if Lindsay Lohan wins an acquittal in the lying to cops case, she could still face jail time of up to 245 days for probation violation in her necklace theft case.
