Amidst reports that Lindsay Lohan was questioned by the Los Angeles Police Department regarding an alleged burglary at Hollywood Hills mansion, her close friend and business associate, Claus Hjelmbak tells RadarOnline.com exclusively that the actress “is doing remarkably well and focused on work.”
Despite claims that Lohan was “getting the hell out of dodge,” after being questioned by the cops, Hjelmbak, who accompanied Lohan to Los Angeles International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, told RadarOnline.com exclusively: “The trip to New York City had been planned for awhile and she will be having several work meetings and spending time with her family. There was no escaping anything. I had dinner with Lindsay, Dina and her brother Cody, on Monday night at the Viceroy Hotel and she is doing remarkably well and focused on work. There was no drinking at all at dinner and Lindsay is just very excited for the future. I won’t make any more comments about Lindsay because I respect her privacy.”
Lohan and Hjelmbak, a famed celebrity broker and promoter, previously worked together when the actress hosted the Scandinavian Style Mansion party in 2008.
As we previously reported, Lohan spoke with police in Los Angeles Monday after a Hollywood Hills home she spent the night in on Sunday was burglarized. The Mean Girls star awoke to find the place, where she’s spent many a night partying, had been robbed.
The owner of the Hollywood Hills home locked the home down with all of the guests inside while authorities questioned all on the premises, according to reports. LiLo’s assistant Gavin Doyle also answered questions for investigators.
Sources connected to the investigation tell Radar: “Lindsay isn’t a suspect and was cooperative with cops during the brief time she was questioned. The notion that Lindsay is fleeing Los Angeles is just ridiculous. Lindsay can’t go anywhere without being swarmed by photographers.”
Lohan is in the midst of a career comeback as she has just finished filming the Elizabeth Taylor biopic, and Brett Easton Ellis‘ The Canyon. Lindsay remains on probation in her misdemeanor necklace theft case.
