Let’s get this out of the way. Lindsay Lohan was not really buying drugs outside a bar in Venice Beach yesterday. She’s an idiot but she’s street smart. Well, at least she’s street smart enough not to buy drugs in broad daylight. I hope…
X17 taped a video of Lindsay Lohan outside of Hal’s Bar & Grill on Tuesday. At one point, a tatted up man (your stereotypical suspicious-looking drug dealer) came up to her and handed Lindsay’s friend a bag of powdery white substance. After her friend checked it out, Lindsay takes a Ziploc baggie from a different guy and gives him cash. Many assume she was buying drugs.
Lindsay’s publicist Steve Honig has denied these allegations says X17, “Knowingly and consciously making inferences about Lindsay that are completely untrue, and creating a fictitious story to get more people to visit their site. We were not given a chance to comment on this story before it went up, and no effort was made to gather the facts about what actually occurred. When I addressed this with the agency, they told me ‘we’re not the New York Times.’ They have made a horrific mistake; the worst part is, they know it but don’t care.”
Honig says that while what was in the baggie were rocks and crystals, it wasn’t illegal as they consisted of “sea jasper, a meteor, rose quartz and quartz,” purchased by a friend of hers from a store down the street. Riiight. Because that makes complete sense to have your friend buy you rocks from down the street just to have you inspect them before buying it yourself.
Okay, so maybe Lindsay IS dumb enough to buy drugs in broad daylight. Granted, she’s not above planting stories to screw with the media so take this with a grain of powdery white substance.
