Dina Lohan: Lindsay isn’t a thief

Addressing reports that Lindsay was suspected of stealing $500,000 worth of jewelry from an Elle photo shoot, Dina Lohan wants everyone to know her daughter is innocent. People reports:

“Last month her personal cell was posted online and now her phone messages have been hacked,” Dina Lohan tells PEOPLE. “This must stop. She is a 22-year-old girl who needs to live her life in peace. The tabloids need to leave her alone with all the lies and reporting with no proof.”
Specifically, Dina says any suggestion her daughter is involved in the theft of jewelry during a recent photo shoot for British Elle is “defamatory, false and unfair.” Lindsay is one of some 20 people at the shoot who are being questioned by police and has never been called a suspect. What’s more, “Elle made a public statement backing Lindsay,” Dina says.

And, for once, I actually agree with Dina: Petty theft isn’t Lindsay’s M.O. She’s more of the pretend to be lesbian then buy a bunch of cars and shit with her girlfriend’s money-type. Or “snatch and grab” if you will.
