Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to promoting her role as Karen in David Mamet’s upcoming West End production of “Speed The Plow”. Naturally, she would try to use anything at her disposal in order to get people chattering about her London job. So, when promoting the production to the “Daily Telegraph”, she happened to talk about her time doing community service at the Los Angeles County Morgue. Simple enough, right?
Not so much…. She claimed that she handled the body of Whitney Houston while the late singer was in a body bag. How’s that for promotion? Of course, the timing seemed okay, considering that she was there during the same time right when Houston passed away. Would she really lie about something like that?
She said, “It was f***ed up and inappropriate – because a lot of other people were meant to do it, and they were like, ‘No, they can’t handle it. Lohan can.’ It’s different for me than it would be for other people – like no one would really have to work at the morgue in L.A. and roll a body bag for Whitney Houston. I know it sounds really dark and strange, but I thought it would be a lot worse.”
The Coroner at the facility was quick to respond to the claims that Lohan handled the late singer’s body bag. He called BS on her account and said that the singer wasn’t even in a body bag while she was being taken care of at the morgue. How’s that for the truth, LiLo?
An official from the Coroner’s Office tells TMZ … Whitney was NEVER in a body bag and no one in the probation program came in contact with Whitney’s body.
The official says Whitney was wrapped in plastic with a sheet cover the entire time she was at the morgue. In fact, she was taken out in plastic — not a body bag — from the hotel where she died.
She’s not too keen on presenting any form of the truth, is she? Did she think it would give her street cred to say that she handled a body bag containing Whitney Houston?
