Lindsay Lohan Allegedly Tried To Fake Pneumonia To Get Out Of Scary Movie 5

Lindsay Lohan made it to Atlanta to film a cameo for Scary Movie 5, but if the latest rumors are to be believed, it’s an absolute miracle she ever got to the set. From blowing off readings to missing planes to trying to secure a doctor’s note, the actress reportedly spent the past few weeks frantically burning every possible bridge to get herself removed from the film.

According to The New York Post, the Mean Girls actress signed a contract awhile back to film a role in the upcoming fifth installment opposite Charlie Sheen. When she was delivered the script a few weeks ago, however, she reportedly “freaked out” over some shots it took at her. A meeting was supposedly scheduled to potentially amend the contents, but Lohan allegedly blew that off in addition to all subsequent table readings and wardrobe fittings.

When none of that got her fired, The Post claims she tried to get a doctor to write a note saying she had walking pneumonia, but that plan didn’t work either, nor did blowing off her initial flight. Here’s how the outlet’s source summed the alleged fiasco up…

”She’s been in a tailspin. Even Charlie Sheen worried she might not be able to do the scene.”

Whether this wild tale is true or not, there is something seriously foul in Lindsay’s life right now. In just the past few weeks, she’s been accused of stealing watches and sunglasses, blowing off a five figure bill at the Chateau Marmont and trashing Elizabeth Taylor’s Cleopatra trailer. Add this one to the mix and it seems like more than enough reason to start sounding alarm bells.

In the hours since this story first began racing around the Internet, Lohan’s representative has officially denied its veracity, saying her client is “willingly fulfilling all of her obligations.” Thus far, no one from the production has spoken on the record; so, you’ll have to decide for yourself whether or not this particular claim holds water.
