The district attorney in Lindsay Lohan’s probation case has a new target in their investigation.
RadarOnline.com has learned Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers plans to interview Lohan’s former assistant, Eleonore Lieven, who walked out on the actress earlier this month — and orchestrated the plans to eventually get the troubled actress back to Los Angeles from her ill-fated trip to Cannes, to face court.
Meyers’ move to call Lieven as a key witness in the case could set up a courtroom showdown between boss and staffer.
“The district attorney is very interested in Eleonore,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com.
“At the very least, an investigator from the D.A.’s office will be making contact with Lieven.
“A decision will be made about whether Eleonore will testify depending on what is gathered from the initial meeting with investigator.
“But if she is called, it could be very explosive and could very well go badly, very quickly for Lohan.”
Lohan’s right-hand woman, Lieven, lasted a few, tumultuous months and was left “exhausted” after her role.
She handed in her notice after being constantly on call and cited bad hours, bad pay and bad attitude as the reason.
One source has told RadarOnline.com Lieven spent a panicked three days attempting to ensure the troubled Mean Girls star returned from France, after she claimed her passport was stolen.
“Eleonore literally didn’t sleep for three days trying to get Lindsay back to Los Angeles,” said a source.
“Meyers wants to gather specific information about the particulars of when the assistant was notified about the passport missing.”
The latest development follows our revelation that the alcohol education program overseeing Lohan’s sobriety was slapped with a subpoena to appear before a judge in the case.
Meyers served the troubled actor’s court-ordered alcohol education program, Right On Program, in Glendale, California, last Friday.
Staff, including the program’s director, were ordered to testify at Lohan’s probation violation hearing on July 6.
