According to snitching snoops, the now infamous Lindsay Lohan/Vanessa Minnillo “knife play” flicks were actually stolen from the actress’ car by the popular paparazzi site X17, as opposed to being swiped from La Lohan’s pad as previously reported.
“Those photos were stolen by a paparazzi when Lindsay went to The Ivy for lunch,” says a mole, who was, until recently employed at X17.
The snitch continues: “[The photog] waited until the valet parked her car [the infamous Mercedes convertible] and then reached inside, took her camera that was just laying on the seat, downloaded the photos on to his laptop hard drive, and put the camera back. By the time the valet brought Lindsay’s car around, everything was just the way it was when she got out, and she had no clue what had happened.” With all of the controversy going around Lindsay’s trip back to rehab, her friends and family selling her out, it was the perfect time to release the shocking and old photos into the marketplace. “She has so many troubles, what’s she going to do, sue? It’s like kicking someone when they’re down — way down.”
Lindsay’s publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnick has released this statement:
“Unfortunately, we live in a society where we allow stolen pictures to make a profit. I can’t believe magazines would purchase and publish stolen, personal photos. If anyone wants to step up to the plate and donate the profits from their sale, we would be happy to point you in the direction of a charity in need.”
