Lindsay Lohan banned from Chateau Marmont Hotel over $46,000 unpaid bill
Newly leaked document reveals that troubled actress Lindsay Lohan was recently banned from Chateau Marmont Hotel over a $46,350.04 unpaid bill.
Lilo stayed in the upscale Chateau Marmont Hotel in West Hollywood during June and July of this year, all the while racking up heavy room service bills.
The star, who was last night spotted leaving the Wolfgang Puck Restaurant in New York, ordered up room service meals, cigarettes and regularly used the mini bar during her stay but failed to pay the hotel for their services, forcing the manager to ban her from the premises.
In a letter to Lindsay Lohan obtained by TMZ, hotel general manager Philip Pavel wrote to the troubled 26-year-old on July 31, reiterating their “repeated attempts to resolve” the bill.
Philip Pavel writes: “As you are aware from our previous correspondences starting on July 8, you currently owe the hotel a grand total of $46,350.04 in charges for your stay starting on May 30, 2012.”
The general manager of the hotel also informed Lindsay Lohan that she would no longer be welcome on their premises.
The letter continues: “As we have made repeated attempts to resolve this pressing matter over the last few weeks without any resolution, I regret to inform you that we will no longer be able to extend any further credit for you to remain in the hotel.
“Please have all of your belongings removed from Suite 33 by 12:00PM, Wednesday, August, 1, 2012.”
Not only was Lindsay Lohan told that she would have to leave her suite at the hotel, she was also told that she could no longer use the facilities or eat in the popular restaurant.
“Furthermore, until we get the matter of your outstanding debt paid, know that we will be unable to host you on property or in the restaurant.”
To perhaps coax Lindsay Lohan into paying her colossal bill, manager Philip Pavel even dismissed charges for rental use of a computer that Lindsay had been using.
“In regard to your bill, please note that I have adjusted off the daily $75 charge for computer rental for use of the hotel’s laptop as a gesture of good faith, with the understanding that you will return the computer upon your departure tomorrow.”
Lindsay Lohan was staying in the hotel while she filmed Liz & Dick – where she plays Elizabeth Taylor in the biopic of her life.
In recent years the troubled star has become more famous for her court appearances than her acting work, with Lindsay Lohan reportedly hoping that her performance in Liz & Dick will help save her ailing reputation.
No stranger to scandal, Lindsay Lohan was recently caught up in an alleged jewellery heist after being formally named as a suspect in a robbery – with reports now suggesting that she will not face prosecution after she claimed that she had been framed.
