Morning Sideboob: Lindsay Lohan Credit Cards Declined
Did She Run Out of the Oprah Money Already?
While shopping in Soho last weekend, Lindsay Lohan tried to make a purchase at the clothing store Rag & Bone and not one, but two of her credit cards were handed back by the cashier with a sour face and a nod from side to side.
When we worked in retail, we were told that if we ever came across a declined credit card, we were to confiscate it and cut it up with a pair of scissors in front of the customer. So aggressive.
We’re not sure if that happened to LiLo, but it’s how we’re going to envision how the situation went down.
A source close to the troubled starlet—who is reportedly so broke that the production company behind her reality show on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN had to come through with checks for her rent and security deposit—told us, “Lindsay was trying to buy something for around $300 but her credit cards were declined. She looked really embarrassed and tried to negotiate before her friend finally stepped in and paid.”
“Negotiate.” Like how she tried to negotiate $100,000 worth of jewelry that one time?
She also just lost her assistant, Matt Harrell, because she didn’t have the cash to pay him.
If only she’d landed that role in The Avengers. Yeah. Didn’t you hear? Lindsay was up for a major role in the box office smash but didn’t get it because her manager is too lazy.
Her “people” aren’t going to bat for her, she said on the last episode of “Lindsay.” The only reason she got cast in her last two movies is because she went after them herself.
She should have been in The Avengers.
Her manager gives her parts to Vanessa Hudgens. Vanessa Hudgens is going to steal her Oscar!
The thoughts going on in that brain…
Alanis Morissette Wants Her Stolen Dog Back
What do you do when your celeb boss fires you? Grab the family dog and run! That’s what jagged little singer Alanis Morissette is alleging her former house manager, Maria Garcia, did.
Alanis and her husband, Mario Treadway, found the chihuahua/pug mix on the street in 2011. They brought him to the animal shelter, but no one claimed him, so they adopted him and named him Circus.
When Maria was relieved of her house manager duties in January, she packed up her stuff and threw Circus in with the mix, saying she had grown attached to the dog.
Well, Alanis and Mario are barking mad and are suing Maria for $25,000 and the return of Circus. Suddenly, Maria says the couple gave her the dog and made this video to prove her case, calling in the dog walker as a material witness.
It’ll be interesting to see if she’s as attached to the dog if she has to pay out 25 g’s. That’s a lot of Kibbles ‘n Bits.
Chris Brown Sends a Message from the Clink
Chris Brown is serving time, but he’s always got his fans—and his latest project, which he wants to promote—on his mind. And he loves his girl, too. That girl right now is Karrueche Tran. There were reports that Karrueche dumped Chris not because he left her to go back to Rihanna again, and not because he had sex with a strange while in rehab. It was because she found a string of texts to ladies that a gentleman who is spoken for shouldn’t have on his phone.
She’s over it cuz they’re back together, and Karrueche even helped Chris deliver a message to his fans from jail.
“Most importantly … Karrueche, I love you.”
Chris can always get the girls to come back. No matter how badly he treats them. It’s like he has some magical, mystical pull on them. What is it? What could it be?
