Lindsay Lohan has been accused of stealing a pricey bracelet that once belonged to Elizabeth Taylor, during filming of the Lifetime television movie based on the life of the late screen legend, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"Lindsay became very good friends with Elizabeth Taylor's longtime nurse while shooting Liz & Dick," a source close to the situation tells Radar. "Elizabeth had given the nurse an expensive bracelet that was very meaningful to her and the nurse absolutely cherished it. Lindsay immediately fell in love with the bracelet the minute she saw it and was very vocal about how much she admired it. A short time later, the bracelet disappeared from the nurse's house … on the very same day Lindsay had been to visit.
"The nurse initially gave Lindsay the benefit of the doubt, thinking that she had just accidentally forgotten to take the bracelet off after trying it on. However, that theory was soon shot down after she called Lindsay and she swore she did not take the bracelet and categorically denied having it in her possession. The nurse knew that was a blatant lie as the bracelet disappeared after Lindsay was at the house and she knew that it had to have been Lindsay who took it. In the end, it took over a week to get the bracelet back from Lindsay and it was only returned after the nurse threatened to call the cops. One of Lindsay's people eventually returned the bracelet to the nurse, who was extremely upset about what had transpired," the source says.
During the time the nurse was battling to get her bracelet back, the source says Lindsay sent her a text message that read: "Elizabeth would be very upset with how you are behaving."
Before the bracelet incident, Lohan had sung the nurse's praises, telling Jay Leno that she had generously given the troubled 25-year-old one of Dame Taylor's furs. "My entertainment lawyer, he knows the nurse that was with her for about seven/eight years, so I became good friends with her and she was on set most of the days I was working and she actually gave me one of Elizabeth's furs, which was nice of her," Lindsay said during a promotional appearance for Liz & Dick.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Lohan is currently on probation for stealing a necklace from a Venice jewelry store. Meantime, she will be back in court on January 15 to be arraigned on new charges of lying to cops in connection with a Santa Monica car crash she was involved in last year.
Calls seeking comment to Lohan's rep weren't immediately returned.
