Lindsay Lohan To Change Her Name?
It seems that Lindsay Lohan has had it with her name. The actress plans on changing her name, by dropping “Lohan.”
When leaving rehab on January 3, Lindsay Lohan claimed to be ready to make some big changes in her life, and it seems that the star found another way to do so. Maybe Lindsay just wants to leave all the troubles behind now, leave it all in her past, and she found a way to mark the change. According to the singer’s mother Dina, Lindsay is ready to make that change. But, is this actually the reason why the young actress wants to drop “Lohan” from her name?
Well, not actually. According to the Los Angeles Times Lindsay wanted a short name to be more notorious, as Madonna or Beyonce. And that is not all. The whole family plans on dropping the Lohan name, Dina claimed. So, Lindsay’s mom and her sister Ali are also going to give up “Lohan” and they will change their surname to Dina’s maiden name, Sullivan. But, what will Michael Lohan have to say about this change and the fact that both his daughters and his former wife want a different surname? According to a source stepping away from Michael Lohan is another reason why Lindsay, her sister and her mom are going to change their names, and the three seem to just want to start all over. “No one in the family want anything to do with Lindsay’s father anymore, and that includes sharing a last name,” the source explained.
And it seems that Michael Lohan has already expressed his feelings regarding this change. According to the New York Daily News, Michael claimed to be really hurt by his daughter’s decision, but it looks like he is sure that Lindsay will change her mind and after all she will not take action in changing the name. And again Michael blamed his former wife for trying to keep him away from Lindsay and his other children, saying that it was most likely her idea to change the name Lohan and not Lindsay’s.
But, on the other hand, both Lindsay and her dad are going to face some legal troubles as they will both have to be in court on different cases and charges. So, Michael Lohan was arrested last week after being accused of assaulting his former girlfriend. The woman claimed that Michael pushed her and tried to strangle her with a towel. Kate Major also obtained a restraining order against Michael, although the man claimed he never touched or abused her. On the other hand, Lindsay Lohan is about to face trial on the case involving grand theft charges. The 24 years old actress refused a plea deal that was to include some jail time and she decided that it would be better for her to face a jury in her attempt to prove that she really is innocent. Lindsay refused the deal, reports claimed, mostly because all the actress wanted was to avoid jail, thing that couldn’t be done, as the deal would have included a three to six months prison sentence.
Lindsay Lohan has been accused of stealing a $2,500 necklace from a jewelry store in Venice, California. The actress claimed right from the beginning that she is not guilty, saying that the store launched the allegations against her only with the purpose to obtain money and free publicity and this is exactly what Lindsay and her legal team are willing to prove in court. Her lawyer, Shawn Chapman Holley announced on Wednesday that Lindsay would not take the plea deal. “[S]he has a strong defense; and we are confident that a jury will listen to the evidence fairly and acquit her,” Holley said. The preliminary hearing on the case is set to take place on April 22 and Lindsay will most likely say in court that the store gave her the jewelry piece on loan, as she has been claiming so far. If convicted, Lindsay faces up to 3 years in prison. However, she can also receive an additional sentence if the judge will decide that she violated the terms of her probation. Lindsay Lohan currently is on probation after her 2007 drunk driving arrest. In another separate case, Lindsay was accused of assaulting a Betty Ford Facility Center employee, after refusing to submit to a drug test, case that is still under investigation.11
