Lindsay Lohan Slams Kode Magazine: Interview Is Fake
By Daniel Gates | 5:54 pm, April 21st, 2014
Lindsay Lohan’s rep says Kode magazine largely fabricated a cover story in which the actress supposedly reveals that she’s dating a married man, talks about sleeping with Jared Leto, and takes shots at Barbara Walters and Jennifer Lawrence.
The interview — which was picked up and immediately spread by Us Weekly, RadarOnline and other outlets — seemed suspicious as soon as Gossip Cop read it. The writer is never identified, Leto’s name is misspelled, and Lohan is described as openly drinking alcohol during the supposed interview — which, given that Lohan was promoting her sobriety-focused series “Lindsay,” seems unlikely.
At one point, she’s quoted as saying, “Oh this guy I’m seeing sent me a jet because he wants to see me. But he’s married with kids.” Conveniently, he is never named. Last week, for what it’s worth, Lohan said on “The View” that she was single.
Elsewhere in the Kode piece, the actress supposedly says of Oprah Winfrey, “She’s taught me so much and really believes in me, nothing like Barbara Walters.” Huh?
When the writer gushes about Leto, Lohan is quoted as saying, “All my friends love Jared, we’ve been off and on for years.” The Kode scribe says, “I bet he’s great in bed,” to which Lohan supposedly responds, “Oh yeah!”
At that point, the writer says Lohan jumps into an attack on Lawrence. “She’s so fake and I’m sorry I’m not going to f*ck for roles,” Lohan is quoted as saying. Again… huh?
If all of this seems implausible, it’s because a lot of it was allegedly made up. A rep for Lohan says, “Lindsay never spoke to any journalist at Kode. The interview was completed via email.”
“We have no comprehension on why a journalist would fabricate this content and distribute it in such an irresponsible way,” adds the spokesperson.
Meanwhile, Kode tells E! News that he has “sworn testimonies that it took place that back up everything.” Gossip Cop contacted the magazine’s editor-in-chief, who told us he doesn’t have any taped conversations with Lohan.
If there are any updates, we’ll report them.
