Actress Lindsay Lohan is giving her own version of events in an alleged theft of watches and sunglasses valued at $100,000, and she’s pointing the finger at a man who says he’s the son of Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight, TMZ.com reports.
Authorities say Lohan is formally a suspect in the theft a week ago from the Hollywood Hills home of Lohan’s friend Sam Magid, as we reported earlier today. Now the actress is alleging she’s being framed, according to TMZ.
TMZ reports: “Magid told cops Monday … he was in touch with two of Lindsay’s friends — one of whom is Andrew Knight — and they said the night of the theft Lindsay had handed them a bag with 2 or 3 pieces of the stolen items wrapped in her T-shirt. The two men returned the items to Magid. Other items were still missing.”
Authorities reportedly continue to focus on Lohan and are unconvinced about her implication of Knight. For his part, Knight is denying her accusations, TMZ reports.
The story adds: “Magid also said he was in touch with Lindsay, who told him she had hidden some of the other items around the house because she was afraid they would be stolen by burglars. We’re told Magid told cops Lindsay confessed she was on Ambien at the time she hid the jewelry and was hazy about exactly what happened.”
Magid also reportedly told police that he was contacted recently by Lohan and she told him, "I’m sorry. Please pray for me."
In addition to watches and sunglasses, Tiffany monogrammed silverware was also stolen, according to the report.
