The fired Betty Ford worker who accused Lindsay Lohan of criminal battery — then retreated from her police complaint before striking a financial deal with the actress’ father Michael — never signed any agreement, according to her new lawyer.
“I can confirm that no settlement has been reached by my client and any other party – she did not agree to anything nor has she signed anything either,” Owen Latham McIntosh told RadarOnline.com, in an exclusive interview.
We broke that story that Holland secretly cut a $25,000 deal after refusing to cooperate with the police investigation into her altercation with the 24-year-old actress.
Holland denied there was ever a deal.
But in a stunning turn of events, Michael confirmed RadarOnline.com’s exclusive report and contradicted the ex-chemical technician’s denial, confessing that he agreed to pay a “greedy” Holland an undisclosed “number”.
He said: “Dawn has had her attorney meet with me, negotiate with me and even propose a “deal” with me, her lawyer and Lindsay’s lawyer, Shawn Holly (Chapman) — and while I agreed to Dawn Holland’s initial “number”, to procure financial stability due to getting fired, she got greedy and took it to another level.
“Dawn DEMANDED that Lindsay agree to a sit down interview to make ‘amends’ for the sake of the public NOT because Dawn wanted to set the record straight, but because she negotiated a deal to make more money from the interview.”
Responding to Michael’s charges, Chapman Holly told RadarOnline.com: “I have never entered into any agreement with Ms. Holland or with any representative of Ms. Holland– on Ms. Lohan’s behalf or otherwise– for money to be paid to Ms. Holland, either directly or indirectly.”
As RadarOnline.com revealed, Holland fired her Los Angeles-based attorney Keith Davidson on Thursday afternoon after the payday never materialized.
The woman’s new lawyer told us: “I’m not privy to what my predecessor did and I’m still gathering information at this point and will be doing so for quite sometime.”
