The Word: Lindsay Lohan involved in a hit and run

Lindsay! Say it ain't so.

It’s been, what? A hot minute since Lindsay Lohan hasn’t been in trouble with the law?

Her days-long winning streak is seemingly coming to an end after allegedly hitting a man with her brand new black Porsche and fleeing the scene in Hollywood late Tuesday night, according to TMZ. Lohan was reportedly trying to execute a three-point turn and avoid paparazzi while leaving a nightclub when her car made contact with the manager of a nearby hookah lounge.

The manager, whose knee was supposedly grazed, initially said he was fine and didn’t need medical attention, according to paparazzi on the scene. But when he was informed that Lohan was behind the wheel, he reportedly began complaining about being injured. The man was taken to the emergency room and is said to be considering hiring a lawyer and pressing charges. Police sources tell the website that they will open a hit-and-run investigation if the man decides to press charges.

Lawrence is getting used to Hollywood

Jennifer Lawrence isn’t in a hurry to make any enemies in Hollywood, so when a tabloid story suggested she was feuding with “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart, the “Hunger Games” star did everything she could to quash it. “There were all these like, fake quotes from me that were actually hilarious. Some of them were from my ‘pal’ and ‘sources,’” Lawrence tells Access Hollywood. “Then I was like, ‘Oh my God. If she reads this, what if she thinks it’s true?’ I just shot her an e-mail, and was like, ‘Hey, can’t wait to see more as this feud unfolds!’” Stewart, no stranger to being tabloid fodder, took it in stride. “She wrote me back,” says Lawrence. “She was like, ‘It’s fine. Welcome to the world where everything you say gets turned into [something it's not].’ So, she understood.”

Smart girl. The last person I’d want to get into a fight with is Kristen Stewart. I bet she fights dirty.
