Lindsey Lohan responses to Chief Bratton comments
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lindsay Lohan said Friday that police have no business getting involved in her personal life, a day after the police chief explained that the paparazzi were no longer an issue - in part because the 22-year-old actress had evidently "gone gay."
"Police chiefs shouldn't get involved in everyone else's business when it comes to their personal life. It's inappropriate," Lohan said in a video shot by paparazzi Friday and posted on TMZ.com. In the footage, Lohan and gal pal Samantha Ronson are trekking through the Los Angeles Airport on their way to catch a flight to Chicago.
The day before, Chief William Bratton said the paparazzi have become less of a problem thanks to Britney Spears, Paris Hilton and Lohan leading more moderate lifestyles.
"If you notice, since Britney started wearing clothes and behaving; Paris is out of town not bothering anybody anymore, thank God, and evidently, Lindsay Lohan has gone gay, we don't seem to have much of an issue," he told KNBC-TV.
Bratton was speaking about his refusal to participate in a meeting held by elected officials Thursday that was called to discuss new laws to curb problem paparazzi.
He called Los Angeles City Councilman Dennis Zine's special session - which was attended by the likes of John Mayer, Eric Roberts and Milo Ventimiglia - "a complete waste of time."
Bratton later called a news conference outside police headquarters to clarify his position on the paparazzi. When asked about the Lohan remark - which followed months of tabloid speculation that Lohan and Ronson, a DJ, are dating - Bratton said his sister is gay and he is a proponent of gay rights.
