Lindsay Lohan tweets she 'would never steal,' complains about media coverage in necklace case


While her attorney suggested that Lindsay Lohan would accept a plea deal after being charged with stealing a necklace, the actress herself insisted in an Internet posting that she would "never steal."

On her Twitter feed, Lohan said she wants to work again and complained about all the media coverage of her court appearance.

“…i just want to be on set again, and left alone to just work! fyi- i would never steal, in case people are wondering. I was not raised to lie, cheat, or steal.”

She questioned media coverage of the tight, short white dress she wore to court Wednesday: “also, what i wear to court shouldn’t be front page news. it's just absurd. god bless xox L.”

Lohan's attorney also insists the actress is innocent. But in an interview on CNN, she suggested Lohan would accept a plea bargain.

"We will entertain a discussion concerning a plea if it means no jail so that she can move forward with her recovery and her career," Shawn Chapman Holley said.

Lohan on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to felony grand theft charges of stealing the necklace.

She posted a $40,000 bond and was released.

Lohan is accused of taking a $2,500 necklace from Kamofie & Co. The alleged Jan. 22 incident was captured on store surveillance video. She was already on misdemeanor probation for driving under the influence. That case has seen her jailed briefly three times.

Lohan recently underwent 90 days in rehab at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage. Riverside County prosecutors are reviewing allegations that she commited battery against a Betty Ford technician in December during an altercation. Lohan has denied the allegation.

she is now an official member of the BLING RING

There is arbitrary justice trending. A man sucker punches his victim; consequently, the victim falls on a slab and gets killed. The murderer got one year plus five years probation. Stealing a jewelery is bad for business, but that is a horse of a different color.

There are revolutions going on in the world and your headlines are Lilo's tweets? The media is totally to blame for the gutter we are wallowing in.

She said she wore that dress because it symbolizes "purity."

Really??? Where?

I would think she has an account at this store. A salesmperson had to get the piece out for her. Lindsay could have thought the clerk was putting it on her account. They say they have a video of her stealing it. Is she seen stealing it or putting it on while shopping and forgot she had it on and left. If so add it to her account or call her and ask if she over looked paying for the necklace. I doubt she would try to steal a 2500.oo necklace, that is not really expensive for her. She has enough money to pay for that.
