Most recently, Lohan has been in the news for something other than alcohol/drug abuse, or rehab. She was allegedly considered for having stolen a very expensive necklace from a jewelry store in Venice California. Take a look at full article here. from yahoo.com

I read the article and the comments. Why is it people are so hard on
the celebs? Because they sleep around, do drugs, abuse alcohol, etc.?
But regular people do that too and those people are often pitied because
it's assumed they've had a hard life which makes them turn to these
vices. Then why is the public so hard on the rich and famous? I don't
get it.... I'm not condoning any of the wrong, I'm just wondering why
it's more accepted when regular joe's do it but not when you have a
certain fame attached to your name?
Apparently she borrowed the piece to wear to an event and her assistant
forgot to return it on time. I'm sure lots of celebs borrow jewelery
and clothes even (as a commenter said) because the companies get free
publicity. The necklace is only worth only $2500, which is on the
cheaper side for "real jewelry".
I find anything to do with the rich and famous is blown out of proportion.

The way I see it, the jeweler comes out win/win in any case. They probably got tons more awareness because of these allegations than they would have if Lohan had legitimately worn it around town for a day.
I agree - because of Lohan's past, everyone's going to jump to conclusions and assume the worst of her. Whether she's innocent or guilty, it almost doesn't matter any more. Her reputation has been ruined because of her mistakes (and perhaps deservedly so), but until she goes scandal-free for a long time, no one will give her the benefit of the doubt.
It's really too bad - she's still so young and could have a brilliant future! But remember, there have been other celebs who've bounced back from the same or worse, so it's doable but hard work.
