New York, (ANI): Soon-to-be jailbird Lindsay Lohan is getting ready for her biggest payday in years. Bids for the Mean Girls star's pre-and post-prison interview are now coming in at more than 500,000 dollars, it has emerged.
Several TV networks are putting in bids, joining forces with weekly mags to score the big jailhouse chat. Meanwhile, Lohan was close to signing lawyer Robert Shapiro, who defended OJ Simpson in his murder trial, in a desperate bid to overturn her 90-day sentence, which starts July 20.
"The irony is Lindsay is in demand. The bidding is over 500,000 dollars for the rights to the pre-jail interview, the prison diary and the first chat when she is released," The New York Post quoted an insider, as saying.
"But Lindsay is still convinced she'll get a reduced term - even if she has to go to rehab afterwards for longer. She has spoken to a number of lawyers over the weekend. She's even seeing a psychic for guidance," the source added.
