The security footage of the incident was sold to the Associated Press for around $40,000, and although Lohan claimed that the necklace was a loan, the Venice, CA jewelry store denied this and proceeded to press charges. Grand Theft Uh-Oh!
While it is not certain which charity the auction money will go to yet, Kamofie & Co. is allowing the people to decide on which one will receive the proceeds.
Despite Lohan’s troubled past, I still think this ‘noble effort’ seems a bit calculated— but no matter, I suppose as long as a charity is benefiting from the event, it can’t be that bad, right?
Oh, and as a slightly amusing side note? The auction will not be able to start until the necklace is released from evidence.
