Lindsay Lohan has gone from nympho (yay!) to klepto (aw.). Last night she was spotted getting close with Nicole Richie’s man Joel Madden at Hornitos (above). But that’s not her only caper. The New York Post is reporting that Lindsay allegedly ganked a fur coat from a Columbia student back in January. And has been photographed wearing the coat:
Masha Markova, 22, believed she had forever lost the prized jacket – a gift from her grandmother – while attending a private birthday party at 1Oak in the Meatpacking District in the early-morning hours of Jan. 26.
She added that at one point, she was seated next to Lohan, and recalled putting the mink in a common bin with other jackets. It was gone when she prepared to leave 1Oak after an hour, Markova said.
Two weeks later, Markova flipped through the Feb. 11 edition of OK! Magazine and couldn’t believe her eyes – Lohan was photographed the night of Jan. 26 wearing the very same fur coat.
Masha, who is now seeking $10,000 in damages, eventually got the coat back after her lawyer contacted Lindsay’s attorney Blaire Berk. 1Oak acted as a middleman for the transaction:
Reeking of cigarettes and booze with a slight tear in the lining, the fur coat was no worse for wear after a dry cleaning and quick patch-up.
Still, she wants answers – and Lohan to own up to swiping her coat.
“I don’t see how it could have been an accident,” Markova said.
But what about the pressing matter of Lindsay and new father Joel Madden? No big deal. You see, Nicole and Joel have a relationship built on trust. Nicole knows Joel will always come back home and stay faithful to his love. In the meantime, she’s perfectly content staying in and shooting heroin while a complete stranger rears their child in a secluded part of the mansion. And people say family values are eroding in this country. Pfft. Hogwash.
