Visitors to Lindsay Lohan's motel residence might fear that opening the wrong closet could result in an avalanche of white powder rivalling the dynamiting of a Himalayan mountainside, but as it turns out, one would merely be covered in the designer detritus of a rumored $100,000 a day shopping habit. The always-entertaining Life & Style magazine reports that Lohan is aware of her alleged problem and has sought professional help:
"Her closets are overflowing with things like $8,000 Prada dresses and $2,000 Balenciaga bags," according to her stylist Rachel Zoe. "She has so many clothes, she never even wears some of them!"
The 19-year-old reportedly has been known to spend $100,000 a day, once allegedly blowing $20,000 in 20 minutes. "I don't want to be the best-dressed person in the poorhouse," Lohan said, reports L&S, which claims that the visits to the hypnotist are already working. During a May 23 stop at Rosasen in LA, she spent a relatively paltry $920.
Lohan's rep, however, didn't mince words blasting the story. "That is just a bunch of crap," she told The Scoop. "There's no hypnotist. And Lindsay loves clothes, but the idea that she spent that much last year is completely stupid."
While we understand why Lohan's publicist might want to refute the $1 million figure to combat her client developing an image of being spoiled and wasteful, you'd think she wouldn't be so quick to dismiss the hypnotism angle. Should unpleasant suggestions that Lohan is dabbling in drugs or combating an "eating disorder" surface again, her PR team could plausibly blame an incompetent hypnotist for tampering with her subconscious and replacing a relatively benign shopping urge with a less savory one to consume $20,000 of blow in 20 minutes.
