New York Post Lindsay Lohan Story a Fake
By Matthew B. Zeidman
NEW YORK (RUSHPRNEWS) 7/29/08 â€“ Earlier this week, it appeared Lindsay Lohan had been struck by a motorcycle on the streets of Manhattan and subsequently hospitalized. However, a story appearing in the New York Post, which claimed the â€œRumorsâ€ singer had been hit, turned out to be just a rumor, itself, when a rep for Lohan told media the Sunday-morning incident never occurred.
â€œYou know as well as I do, itâ€™s rumors, and Iâ€™m not dealing with this stuff anymore,â€ the entertainerâ€™s father, Michael, told Access Hollywood through show co-host and presidential cousin Billy Bushâ€™s radio show Monday. Despite telling Bush he spoke with Lohanâ€™s mother, Dina, who confirmed to him she was uninjured, he appeared to be unaware of the fabricated nature of the incident when he was quoted in the New York Post Sunday, expressing relief his daughter, 22, was not hurt.
â€œFirst I heard a motorcycle; then I heard a bicycle,â€ Lohanâ€™s dad told Bush. â€œI heard all different kinds of stories.â€
Meanwhile, DJ Samantha Ronson, a frequent companion of Lohan, dispelled some rumors of her own the day the phony incident was supposed to have occurred, posting a message on her MySpace page flatly denying allegations by the New York Postâ€™s Page Six. The gossip column originally claimed she refused to spin Lohanâ€™s younger sister, Aliâ€™s, new single, â€œAll the Way Around.â€ Ronson wrote it was â€œa great f***ing pop songâ€ and balked at the newspaperâ€™s suggestion she turned down a request from mom Dina, herself, at a recent party to play it.
In addition to pursuing her musical efforts, Lohanâ€™s 14-year-old sibling will be starring in the upcoming remake of â€œTroll,â€ a 1986 supernatural horror film.
