Lindsay Lohan may be counting on Al Gore to help her repair her image in the media, but it’s news to the former vice president.
According to a rambling, typo-ridden e-mail the New York Post’s Page Six says Lindsay sent to friends and lawyers, the actress plans on leaning on Gore.
“Al Gore will help me. He came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me. If he is willing to help me, let’s find out. Hilary [sic] Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Evan Metroplis [sic], and John Daur who works with them would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK.”…
However, when “Access Hollywood” contacted Gore’s office for a comment on Lindsay’s e-mail, plans seemed to be anything but firm.
“I can confirm for you that Mr. Gore has only met Ms. Lohan once, very briefly, at the GQ Men of the Year dinner last week. There were hundreds of other guests,” a rep for Gore told Access.
In her e-mail, Lindsay goes on to mention a tabloid report claiming she had overdosed on drugs—“Let’s sue the tabloids for saying the things they say. Defamation of character,” the e-mail reads.
The actress proceeds to state her desire to “release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite [sic] letter to the press,” adding she wants to voice her opinions on “how our society should be educated for the better of our country. Our people . . . because I have such an impact on our younger generations, as well as generations older than me. Which we all know and can obviously see.”
In the e-mail, Lindsay also mentions taking someone she refers only to as “LR” to court for “what she’s done to me.”
“It’s my life. I want to live it. People cannot lie and think that it is okay to continue on having done so. I have had many ups and downs, as do we all. But to make false accusations to one girl is unjust in my opinion. I am willing to do anything I need to get my life the way it should be,” the e-mail continued.
Lindsay concludes that she wants to “hold a press conference” and “will do anything necessary to do so,” adding that she is at “such a young and tender age in a woman’s life. It’s enough already, I’ve had enough and I am going to be the one to make a change.”
Leslie Sloane, Lindsay’s rep, is not commenting on the matter.
