Model: Lindsay Lohan Stole My Stuff, Too!
The same week a Columbia University student insisted Lohan swiped her $11,000 blond mink coat in New York City earlier this year, model Lauren Hastings says on the buzznet.com Web site that Lindsay lifted thousands of dollars worth of items from her closet, Inside Edition reports.
“Basically, I have two closets, a lot of the stuff was missing out of one and the next closet was almost completely empty,” Hastings says on a video featured on the buzznet site, claiming her things disappeared during an unauthorized late-night party tossed by her housesitter.
Citing five witnesses, Hastings, 23, also alleges, “They all said they saw Lindsay Lohan basically in my closet, handing a bag of clothes to her bodyguard.”
In an email to PEOPLE, Lohan’s rep responds: “This is all not true. It’s not what it seems.”
Police reportedly searched for the missing items, but they were not recovered. According to documents that Inside Edition obtained from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office, Hastings did report the theft of clothing, but the DA’s office pressed no charges against Lohan, due to insufficient evidence.
Said Hastings: “I contacted Lindsay and said, ‘Look, I know you stole my clothes.’ She then said I was completely delusional, I was pathetic.”
