If you cast your mind back three or so years, you might just remember that Lindsay Lohan was ordered to complete thirty days of community service after she lied to the police about being the passenger in a car which was involved in an accident, when she was actually the driver.
And in case you are wondering, the deadline for that community service has now passed with LiLo not racking up anywhere near enough hours… So the actress’ lawyer is now arguing that meeting fans should count as community service.
If this were the case, it would mean that Linds did a whopping eighty hours of serving the community in just nine days… We just didn’t realise saying ‘Hey’ to fans was such hard work, y’know?
Referencing her stint in West End play ‘Speed-The-Plow’, the 28-year-old reckons that she should receive credit for attending a meet-and-greet with fans, as well as initiating a “work-shadowing experience”, with the prosecutor arguing that she’s basically just “letting people hang out with her”.
Arguing in court, the prosecution apparently fought back: “She got to shake hands with people, and that’s community service.
“I’d love to hang out with a celebrity all day and see their life, but this is not community service.”
And whilst we’re all hanging on tenterhooks to hear whether hanging out with people who love and adore you counts as community service, we all have to wait until February the blimmin’ 18th to find out the judge’s final verdict.
Worth a shot, eh Linds?
