Lindsay Lohan thought she had put all her worries behind her. After an 11th-hour dash that finally fulfilled her public service probation requirements in the United States, Lindsay Lohan seemed set. She was no longer on probation, no longer wanted or defending herself on any charges.
Now the Daily Mail reports that Lindsay Lohan is named in a lawsuit of alleged unpaid wages due to a personal assistant hired for her through a placement agency.
Reports say that one Jesse Peckham was hired to serve as a personal assistant to Lohan for a three-month period while she worled on Speed-the-Plow in London’s famed West End.
Peckham was hired by a recruitment firm called Sorted Personal Management. That company is now accusing Lohan’s British publicist Beth Morris of failing to pay the £3,300 bill for Peckham’s services. There is some talk that Peckham walked out on his job with Lindsay Lohan because he felt her demands of him were ridiculous and insulting.
Other than this bit of inconvenience, Lindsay Lohan has said that she so loves her life in London that she wants to stay there permanently.
“I can definitely see myself settling in London permanently,” Lohan told the Daily Mail.
“For me, I feel more comfortable working from London. And it is beautiful. The architecture is incredible and the parks are so nice. I also love exploring different cities and using London as a base means I can go to more places. That’s really important to me.”
“I can go for a run here on my own,” Lohan said of living in London. “I do every morning, early. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else. In LA I didn’t know what to do, apart from go out every night.”
But one of the best things about living in London is that Lohan’s own personal woes are not seen as fodder for public consumption.
“You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?” she said. “I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”
Not only does she not see her own name dragged through the headlines in London, she does not have to be subjugated to lurid news of others’ lives as much.
“I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant,” she says.
Lindsay Lohan credits her life in London with helping her drop her old habits and grow up.
“I’m in a really good place. I’m blessed to have been able to do a play in London and start a different way of life,” she says.
“New York is very fast paced and it’s not like that over here for me. You grow up and change, and I’m really happy about that, as overall I feel a lot better. Moving here was a new start for me and my outlook on life is different now. Clean slate. Fresh start. Hard work pays off.”
My plan for today is to get as ratchet as @lindsaylohan once did
