Just days out of rehab, the 27-year-old was getting ready to tape Chelsea Handler’s hit E! show when she threw a tantrum right before the cameras were set to start rolling.
“Lindsay called The Canyons director Paul Schrader from the set and insisted that she could not go on unless James Deen was in the audience to support her,” a source close to her told RadarOnline.com.
Her request is even more unusual because there is no love lost between Lindsay and the porn star.
“She hated James,” the source said. “But she wanted him there, so he was called.”
Despite her last minute request, the source said he shot Lindsay down. “James flatly refused, saying he was too busy!”
According to Lindsay’s father, the incident never happened.
“From all accounts and from everything I heard about her shooting Chelsea, everything went really, really well and there was no problem of any kind,” Michael told Radar. “This is just another lie from an ‘insider’ who won’t identify themselves.”
