Lindsay Lohan & Samantha Ronson: Fail to fulfil club contract
Monday 9, March 2009
Actress Lindsay Lohan and girlfriend Samantha Ronson infuriated Florida club bosses at the weekend after failing to fulfil their contractual duties for an event they were booked to host.
Lohan, the Mean Girls star and her DJ girlfriend had originally been scheduled to appear at Passion, a nightclub in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, on St. Valentine's Day - but both declared they were too ill to fly from New York and they cancelled the appearance.
The two girls vowed to make up for the scrapped gig and rescheduled the party for Saturday.
However while the pair turned up to the club on the night, they refused to abide by their deal to pose on the red carpet - instead bypassing the crowds of paparazzi who had been invited to snap the couple at the event.
Their actions have forced the publicity team at Hard Rock Hotel to apologise to the media for the "shameful" snub.
The letter released to the press from the event manager says, "I wanted to take this time to apologize for the debacle last night at Passion Nightclub. Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson appeared at the club but did not fulfill their commitment to appear on the red carpet for a photo opportunity with media. Eventually we brought all media inside the club but the combination of poor lighting and Lohan and Ronson hiding from the media made it impossible for media to get photos.
"Last night was an embarrassment for myself and I am ashamed...
"I will not go in to the issues, miscommunications and poor decisions by non-casino staff that led to last night’s disaster, but I do assure you these mistakes will be addressed and this type of debacle will Never be allowed to happen again."
