Lindsay Lohan Swears Under Oath She Had A Miscarriage, So Things Are About To Get Real

Lindsay Lohan wearing sunglasses on trip to London May 2014Lindsay Lohan is now swearing under oath that she had the miscarriage she talked about on her Oprah docu-series, and with the penalty of perjury on the table, the stakes are about to get a whole lot higher in this situation.

When LiLo first revealed on Lindsay that she’d had a miscarriage, I wasn’t sure what to think. It was certainly convenient timing to explain away some flakiness during filming on her part, but it’s also a very tragic thing that happens far too often, so I didn’t want to be lacking in compassion in the event that she was telling the truth. But either way, this is Lindsay Lohan we’re talking about. I figured it was just one of those things that she gets to say, and while we can all have our private doubts about it, we never get any real answers.

Until now. As you may or may not be aware, Lindsay is currently being sued by D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries, with whom Lindsay was supposed to collaborate for her 6126 clothing line. They were supposed to be the manufacturers for the line, but the deal fell apart, causing Lindsay to sue D.N.A.M. for the $1.1 million she’d missed out on from the licensing fee. But they came back at her with a lawsuit for $5 million, alleging that her ‘drug-addled image’ was the reason the deal collapsed, and that it had done harm to their brand’s reputation to be associated with her.

This was all originally going down last year, but Lindsay was given a reprieve because she was back in rehab again at the time. (Oh, the irony.) But when she still failed to respond to the lawsuit upon her release, she lost the case, and she’s contesting the ruling in new court documents in which she says:

“I have been overwhelmed since leaving rehab and dealing with my sobriety and a miscarriage.”

It’s unclear whether having a miscarriage would release her from the responsibility of responding to the lawsuit, but the most important fact here is that she’s now sworn to it in legal documents. That means that if it turns out Lindsay did lie about the miscarriage to get sympathy for her irresponsibility, that she could face jail time for perjury.

Which…is actually kind of fitting, y’know? If this girl is gonna go to jail for one thing, shouldn’t it be lying? After all her evasions and excuses, I for one would find a certain satisfaction in seeing her finally getting called out for a legitimate falsehood. JUSTIIIIIIIICE!

    How do you prove a miscarriage happened a while ago?

    • CMJ

      They could probably subpoena her medical records?

    • smhmommy

      What if it isn’t documented? I just don’t know how they would prove this. …seems hard to do.

    • CMJ

      I agree…it’s just weird. But I would think she would HAVE to go see a doctor at some point, right?

    • Alexis Rhiannon

      I’d imagine so, especially being a celebrity. If she was so affected that she had to miss two weeks of work, I’d hope that someone on her team would have contacted a medical professional, whether a physician or just someone to speak to about her mental health.

      Depending on how far along she was wouldn’t they be able to tell anyway? I knew a girl who faked a pregnancy and attacked a real pregnant woman to take her baby. The woman fought back and ended up killing her. After it was all said and done it was clear that she wasn’t pregnant then and that she “had never been”. So I think at a certain point they’d be able to tell but then it would be when and how long and all that. I would hope that’s something she wouldn’t lie about. That’s a big damn deal. But…stranger things have happened.

      I think if you suffer a miscarriage in this day in age, you have to go to a doctor.

  • Elizabeth Aspen

    I don’t know why they are bothering to sue her – she has no real money and no prospects, the Oprah cash is most likely gone already, and does this company actually believe that putting Lindsay Lohan’s name on a product was really going to move units in the first place?

    • JenH1986

      Because they would be entitled to that money plus interest should she ever make a come back. The judgments don’t just go away. Depending on where the judgment is the interest could be quite high (12%). Plus they could lien anything she owned, garnish her bank accounts etc. So even if they don’t get anything now, if something happened in the future they could recoup some of that money.

      She sued them first. They countered.

  • NickNack

    When I had my miscarriage I had to go to my doctor’s office every Friday for 3 weeks to get a blood test to make sure my pregnancy hormones reset to zero. If they don’t it means you have some residual placenta in your uterus and you could need a D & C to clear the remainder out that your body has not managed to pass on its own. If not, it can matasticize and turn into cancer.

    • Nbl

      I’m so sorry. I’m not a mother so I can’t say I know anything of why you went through but I hope you’re in a much better place now.

    • NickNack

      Thank you for that. It’s been a hard road, but my husband has been awesome.

    • NickNack

      My point being, if she did have one, and sought treatment for it, there should be all sorts of records, blood work, etc to back up her claims.
