A little over a week ago, Oprah‘s money tore a hole through the universe by allowing Lindsay Lohan to show up to Sundance and announce she’d be starring in a new movie despite spending the past two years filming made-for-TV and direct-to-video movies in between a Scary Movie cameo she tried to bail on before finally showing up after threat of legal action and clogging all the toilets. Except now comes word that the “producers” of her latest project are convicted coke dealers, so that explains literally everything. TMZ reports:
Sources close to Lindsay tell us … it’s inconceivable that she’d bail out of the film, “Inconceivable” … despite reports the money men — who’ve backed several Hollywood movies, including “Lone Survivor” with Mark Wahlberg — were convicted of coke trafficking.
L.A. Weekly reported the men — Remington Chase and Stepan Martirosyan — were convicted in 1993. There were even allegations they put a hit out on a guy in Moscow.
TMZ’s Lindsay source, presumably named Anid Nahol, claims she had no idea her new business partners were former drug dealers but will continue to work with them because she just doesn’t judge and not because this is her goddamn Christmas. She would never, ever think like that, or put up decorations. She just likes lights, is all. And trees. Covered in bulbs. Next to a plate of cookies.
