The surveillance footage showing Lindsay Lohan allegedly stealing a necklace worth 2,500 dollars has apparently been sold.
The jewelry store has reportedly sold the surveillance footage for more than 35,000 dollars to an American TV network, reports the Daily Mail.
CCTV cameras at the store recorded Lohan, 24, trying on the necklace in question, and the footage was expected to be used as evidence against the actress.
But the sale of the footage could undermine the prosecution’s case against the ‘Mean Girls’ star, who is pleading not guilty to the felony grand theft charge.
It has also been claimed that a lawyer representing the jewelry store contacted Lohan’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, last week and asked about obtaining her copy of the CCTV footage in a bid to keep it off the market.
“The jewelry store owner’s lawyer was contacting Shawn Holley and trying to obtain her copy of the video, and also wanted Shawn not show the tape to anyone,” RadarOnline.com quoted a source as telling the website.
Holley was said to be furious at the move and has played no part in the sale of the tape. (ANI)
