Lohan won’t be charged for rehab scuffle
LOS ANGELES — Lindsay Lohan has one less legal worry after prosecutors announced Tuesday that they would not pursue any charges against her over a December scuffle with a rehab worker.
Riverside County District Attorney’s spokesman John Hall said prosecutors determined there was insufficient evidence to pursue a misdemeanor battery case against the actress.
Police were called to a Betty Ford Center facility in Palm Desert around 1 a.m. on Dec. 12 after a worker accused Lohan of hurting her during an altercation. The worker, Dawn Holland, later spoke about the incident on camera with TMZ and was fired by Betty Ford for violating patient confidentiality rules.
Lohan was nearing the end of her three-month court-ordered treatment at the center after violating her probation on a 2007 drunken driving case.
Cattrall glams down for gritty indie role
NEW YORK — After 12 years playing sultry screen vixen Samantha Jones on “Sex and the City,” Kim Cattrall says she’s “letting it all hang out” in her new role as a has-been porn star.
Cattrall gained 20 pounds for the title role in the indie film “Meet Monica Velour,” about a washed up, aging porn star living in a rural Indiana trailer park.
“It was actually kind of a relief,” the 54-year-old actress said Tuesday in an interview. “It was like getting rid of the Barbie doll and throwing it out and starting again.”
Willie Nelson won’t have to sing in court
EL PASO, Texas — A Texas judge says Willie Nelson won’t have to sing in court to resolve marijuana possession charges — and a suggestion that he do so was a joke.
Hudspeth County Attorney Kit Bramblett had said Nelson could resolve the charges by pleading guilty, paying a fine — and singing “Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” for the court.
