Presumably after making sure that Lindsay Lohan was left in the best of hands — specifically, the hands of a lawyer who used to represent Jon Gosselin and can’t even practice law in L.A. without a socialite sponsoring him — Shawn Holley has finally decided bending over backwards trying to keep a perennial trainwreck out of jail for no money is crap, and has officially given up on Lindsay. Via TMZ …
Sources connected with the case tell us … Holley is in the process of filling out paperwork and getting the necessary signatures to officially withdraw from the case … before Lindsay’s hearing on January 30. TMZ broke the story …. Lindsay fired Holley last week as she was on her way to the courthouse to discuss plea bargaining her lying-to-cops case. Lindsay hired Mark Heller, a New York lawyer who is not licensed to practice in California. Sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ … Lindsay has told Holley she made a mistake firing her and wants her back, but Holley has had it with Lohan — who still owes her a ton of money.
Lindsay: Holley, you can’t leave me! Did Richard Burton leave Elizabeth Taylor? No, because I’m Elizabeth Taylor!
Shawn: I- Wait, what? Ugh, never mind. Lindsay, I’m sorry, but not only did you fire me, but you still owe me hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Lindsay: But without you, all I have left is Ginny, the magical talking gin bottle!
Ginny: When Shawn isn’t looking, take all her jewelery. It belongs to you anyway!
Lindsay: Haha, great advice, Ginny!
Shawn: You do know you’re talking to an empty gin bottle, right?
Lindsay: Shhhhh, Ginny’s giving me financial advice. What’s that Ginny? Invest all my money in instant lottery tickets? Great idea, Ginny!
