Lindsay Lohan doesn’t have a lot of solid professional contacts these days. Within the last few months, she pissed off Barbara Walters by backing out of an interview. She got in a huge fight with her “momager” Dina, accusing her of using cocaine. (When she called her dad for help, he ratted her out to TMZ, because he is a good dad.) Her big return to acting in the Lifetime movie Liz and Dick was widely considered hilarious — and it wasn’t a comedy. So you’d think she’s hold close to the few professional connections she has. But in her latest drama, she kicked her assistant Gavin Doyle out of her car after he bailed her out of jail. Now Doyle is getting revenge on Twitter.
As you’ve probably read by now, Lindsay was arrested early Thursday morning after allegedly punching a psychic in a nightclub in New York. She had started the evening at a Justin Bieber concert, which sounds innocent enough, but things obviously went downhill in the hours to come.
Her assistant, Gavin, came to bail her out of the station at 8 am. This is the same assistant that took the fall for Lindsay when she (allegedly) lied to the police this summer about whether she was driving her Porsche when it crashed in California last summer. Lindsay said her assistant was driving, apparently in order to avoid trouble. Anyway, this is one loyal fellow, because he’s still her employee. Or at least he was until yesterday.
But things went downhill, as they so often do with Lindsay. Gawker has video of the two of them in a nasty verbal confrontation as she kicks him out of the car. The exchange includes Lindsay screaming “GAVIN, GET OUT OF THE CAR! GET OUT OF THE CAR, GAVIN!” and Gavin replying “Never speak to me again.” Classic, super-professional employer-employee exchange.
Eventually Gavin took to Twitter, as one does, tweeting things like “after bailing you out last night I HOPE and PRAY you get the help you so desperately need. We are ALL rooting for you. xxx” and “Life is NOT a movie it’s a reality that needs to be faced.”
Poor Lindsay. Poor Gavin. And lucky you, that you don’t work with either of them.
