Lindsay Lohan and the truth have long been at odds with one another, but this latest report in which it seems like Lindsay Lohan implied that she handled Whitney Houston’s dead body while performing community service at the Los Angeles County Deptartment of Coroner might be her pièce de résistance.
In an interview with the Telegraph in anticipation of her debut in Speed the Plow in London’s West End, Lindsay Lohan discussed her time working at the coroner’s office in 2011 and 2012 when she dropped these interesting nuggets on us.
The California courts had decided that her sentence for drink driving and violation of probation should include not only jail time but 12-hour shifts in a morgue. For four months, she worked from 4am to 4pm. It was, as she puts it, “F’d up and inappropriate – because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like: ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’ It’s different for me than it would be for other people – like, no one would really have to work at the morgue in LA and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston.”
Still, she made the best of it: “I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse. I kind of regulated a lot of it. I’d tell people: ‘You didn’t fold that sheet properly’, because I’m OCD with folding.”
Hmmm… Any chance Lindsay could have been exaggerating when bringing up her having to “roll a body bag for Whitney Houston?” Oh, right, this is Lindsay Lohan we’re talking about here.
An official from the Coroner’s Office tells TMZ … Whitney was NEVER in a body bag and no one in the probation program came in contact with Whitney’s body.
The official says Whitney was wrapped in plastic with a sheet cover the entire time she was at the morgue. In fact, she was taken out in plastic — not a body bag — from the hotel where she died.
I guess maybe when you’re asking for $40,000 just to do an interview you might feel the need to spice things up a little bit so people feel they got their money’s worth?
