A representative for the jewelry store that claims Lindsay Lohan stole a $2,500 necklace contacted a literary agent trying to sell a book about the situation, the agent tells RadarOnline.com.
And if that doesn’t sound like a page-turner to you, then you’re in agreement with literary agent Sharlene Martin who turned down the jeweler instantly.
What’s more, a source close to Lindsay’s attorney, Shawn Holley, told RadarOnline.com that , "it's absolutely stunning and shocking that they are trying to get a book deal. It's truly appalling."
Martin told RadarOnline.com this about her conversation with the store’s rep: "He said he is the publicist for the jewelry store, and that they want to do a book about the Lindsay Lohan necklace story.
"I told him, ‘I'm sorry, I don’t see it. This is a moment, not a book.’”
Martin told us that the publicist did not offer any new details on the incident, and she simply didn’t see any way this could be turned into a book.
"The truth be told...if I were interested I would have asked questions,” Martin told RadarOnline.com. “I represent legitimate clients. You know instantly when someone calls you whether it’s a moment, a minute or whether it has legs as a book. This is a fleeting moment. I don’t see how there is enough to put between the pages of a book.”
RadarOnline.com broke the story that the jewelry store sold its surveillance video of Lindsay for more than $35,000. Making a profit off the situation could create credibility problems for the jewelry store in the criminal case if it comes down to a question of the owner’s word against Lindsay’s.
