Lindsay Lohan is screaming “set up!” once again over her arrest for alleged assault at a new York Club. But this time she’s getting some support from an unexpected source, who knows alleged victim Tiffany Mitchell all too well.
Mitchell,28, who has worked as a psychic, was called a “professional liar,” by a Palm Beach socialite who knows her and says Mitchell is well known in Palm Beach.
“I feel bad for Lindsay,” said the former socialite client, who was described as a fixture of the Palm Beach charity gala circuit.
The woman, who was quoted anonymously on gossip site, GossipExtra.com, claimed that Mitchell has preyed on rich Palm Beach socialites for years, even asking her for $43,000 to ”clean” her aura! The woman said she also once employed Mitchell’s services.
“I went to see [Mitchell] for about three weeks in November 2011,” the Florida source said. She used fear tactics to make it seem that I could be in real trouble if I didn’t pay her $43,000.”
“She senses when people are vulnerable and when she can make money. I complained about her to Palm Beach Police but they didn’t do anything about it. I didn’t pay her, but I’m sure others in Palm Beach did. Tiffany is a professional liar,” the woman said.
Lohan was arrested Thursday (Nov. 29) as she attempted to leave a New York club while Mitchell’s husband was busy calling police. Lohan was stopped outside and taken to the police station where she was booked for simple assault.
The accuser claimed Lohan punched her in the face. But the “Liz & Dick” actress insisted she never hit the woman.
In the most recent development, Lohan said she’s hired a private investigator to look into the woman’s background. Mitchell has hired Hollywood celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred.
Lohan said she did not hit Mitchell, but did confronted her because she thought Mitchell and her friends had stolen her purse in the club, which contained $10,000 in cash.
Lohan reportedly had been drinking all day and doing cocaine prior to the incident, according to gossip site TMZ.com.
Mitchell denied knowing the socialite, according to the gossip site.
