Lindsay Lohan Stolen Passport Update: Never Applied For New One
The French Embassy in Marseille Has Confirmed That Lindsay Lohan Has Lost Her Passport But Has Not Applied For a New One
Lindsay Lohan has just a few hours now to get back to Los Angeles and appear in court, otherwise a warrant could be issued for her due to violation of her probation. The Deputy District Attorney in the case, Danette Meyers, said that she will seek jail for up to 180 days for Lindsay Lohan if she is in violation of her probation.
Lindsay decided to go to Cannes for the film festival and according to sources she lost her passport and was unable to get back to the United States in time. Her representatives and even her mother Dina Lohan said that Lindsay had applied for a new passport and they were doing everything they could to get back in time for the hearing. However, the U.S Embassy in Marseille, which is the closest one to Cannes has stated that they did receive a report her passport was stolen but that Lindsay has not requested a new passport.
Dina Lohan told RadarOnline that Lindsay tried to board a plane on Tuesday but was turned away because she had no passport.
"This was not a planned scheme," she said.
Lindsay had faxed a copy of her passport to the embassy in Paris (it is assumed Lindsay had a photocopy of her passport) but she has not requested a new one.
According to the Duty Officer, neither Lindsay nor her mother Dina have contacted the Embassy, but a representative of hers from the United States phoned the Embassy in Paris at 6:25pm local time.
There is nothing the embassy can do this late however. Lindsay could apply for a temporary passport but the paperwork for that cannot be obtained until Thursday morning and by then it will be too late.
Dina Lohan insists that they are doing everything they can:
"We are actively dealing with the French Embassy as we speak but unfortunately they close at a certain hour so we¹re trying to get someone in a higher echelon to help us."
Seems like Lindsay might be going to jail however.
